Composite Decking, Explained

Composite decking has revolutionized the world of outdoor living spaces, offering a superior alternative to traditional wood decks. Understanding composite decking and its unique characteristics can help you make an informed decision when considering this option for your deck installation.

Superior Construction

Unlike a wood deck made solely of natural wood, composite decking is a blend of wood fibers and recycled materials, such as plastic or PVC. 

This combination results in an exceptionally durable deck board, which is resistant to rot and less susceptible to warping, splitting, or cracking over time.


Low Maintenance

One of the most appealing features of composite decking is its minimal maintenance requirements. Unlike wood decking, which requires regular staining, sealing, and sanding, composite deck boards are designed to resist fading, staining, and mold growth. 

A simple periodic cleaning with soap and water is typically all that is needed to maintain its pristine appearance.


Enhanced Longevity

Composite decking materials are engineered to withstand the elements and offer an extended lifespan. 

With the use of high-quality composite decking brands like Trex deck boards, you can enjoy a deck that maintains its beauty and structural integrity for years to come, even in harsh weather conditions.

Installation Versatility

When installing composite decking, you gain the advantage of hidden deck fasteners. These innovative fastening systems eliminate the need for visible screws or nails, creating a sleek and seamless deck surface. 

Not only does this contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal, but it also ensures a safer, splinter-free deck for barefoot enjoyment.

With Riverview Decks, you’re getting a dreamy outdoor space that’s completely safe and durable! Enjoy a composite deck installation that takes care of everything – top to bottom!

Our Composite Deck Installation Process

Following these six easy-to-understand steps ensures a smooth and efficient composite deck installation process. Our team’s expertise, attention to detail, use of proper spacing, consistent material quality, and high-quality tools ensure that your new deck will be a beautiful addition to your home, built to withstand the test of time.

#1. Evaluation and Preparation

Our team will evaluate your existing deck structure before installing your new composite deck and determine if any repairs or modifications are needed. If necessary, we will remove any old deck boards, keeping the frame intact. We’ll also discuss design elements such as deck railings and the option for a picture frame border.

#2. Deck Frame Enhancements

We’ll make the necessary enhancements if your deck frame requires reinforcement or adjustments to meet current building codes and standards. This ensures a solid foundation for your new composite deck and promotes its longevity.

#3. First Board Placement and Spacing

We begin the installation by placing the first composite deck board, ensuring proper spacing between each board. This spacing allows for adequate water drainage and ventilation to prevent moisture buildup and warping. We use rubber mallets to gently tap the boards into place, ensuring a secure fit.

#4. Consistent Material and Design

To maintain a uniform and visually appealing look, we ensure that all deck boards used in the installation are of the same composite material. This consistency ensures a cohesive and seamless appearance for your new deck.

#5. Picture Frame Border and Railings

We can incorporate a picture frame border around the deck perimeter for an added touch of elegance. Additionally, we’ll install deck railings to enhance safety and aesthetics. These railings can be chosen to complement your composite deck’s overall design and style.

#6. Finishing Touches

To complete the installation, we meticulously check for proper spacing, secure all deck boards, and trim any excess material if necessary. We use circular saws to achieve clean and precise cuts. Our team pays close attention to detail, ensuring that your composite deck is visually appealing and structurally sound.

A Word From Our Past Customers

Here’s what your neighbors say about working with a top-tier contractor!


Amber Engle


We had a fantastic experience with Nate, Jose and his team! They were efficient and professional. The communication was impeccable

I was updated every step of the way and always got a timely response when I had a question. They reminded me of a popular chain restaurant that we all know and love with their professionalism and polish. Seriously, they are a step above the rest. 

Even the county inspector kept complimenting their craftsmanship. My deck looks amazing! We will be using them for many future projects for sure.


Jason Eskew


The 5 stars is reflective of the owner and of the business. Nate is a credit to his profession and works to ensure his clients are happy. 

We had a horrible deck which was rotting and becoming unusable. He developed a design that we loved and was on point with all of his suggestions. 

He was always promptly responsive, which we learned is difficult to find nowadays. It wasn’t always smooth sailing (I guess few jobs ever are), but the end result is excellent and exactly what we wanted.

Composite Deck FAQs

The underlayer of a composite deck has a layer of material called a “decking substructure”. This substructure, which can be made of pressure-treated wood or composite materials, provides support and helps distribute the deck’s weight evenly.
A sturdy and well-constructed deck frame supports composite decking. The frame, typically made of pressure-treated wood or steel, provides the structural support necessary to hold the composite deck boards in place and distribute the weight evenly across the surface.
Yes, ventilation is important under a composite deck. Adequate ventilation helps prevent moisture buildup and promotes air circulation, preventing mold growth or deck board warping issues. Proper spacing between deck boards and using the recommended installation guidelines contribute to sufficient ventilation.
Composite decking does not necessarily require a concrete base. The decking substructure, made of pressure-treated wood or composite materials, is typically built on a solid and level surface, such as compacted gravel or well-prepared ground. The specific requirements may vary depending on local building codes and site conditions.
