Composite railing combines the look of wood railing with the durability and easy care of a modern-day, low-maintenance material. Composite railing is a blend of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and recycled wood flour that provides exceptional beauty, strength and weatherability.
More and more, homeowners are choosing composite railing over wood railing because of its low-maintenance benefits. Composite railing doesn’t warp, rot, twist, split or crack like wood. It never needs sanding, staining or painting. There are no toxic chemicals used to treat or maintain the product. Plus, the recycled content of composite railing makes it an environmentally smart choice for eco-conscious consumers.
