In terms of upfront expenses, Green Plank's Classic and EverDeck composite decking is only slightly more costly than pressure-treated wood. And, because pressure-treated wood requires regular maintenance like staining, any savings earned from hardwood will be squandered in as little as three years.
Green Plank's entry-level decking collection Classic and EverDeck makes for a cost-effective and performance-enhancing upgrade over pressure-treated wood decks. In terms of upfront costs, Classic and EverDeck composite decking costs slightly more than pressure-treated wood, but you’ll save money in the long-run since it doesn’t require the costly and laborious annual maintenance that comes with wood decking.

When comparing Composite Decking vs Wooden Decking, durability is one of the biggest differences. Since 1980, Wood Plastic Composite also known as WPC, wood alternatives, or natural-fibers composite (NFC) has quickly become the fastest-growing decking material for residential and commercial use.
Many homeowners choose wood decking because it is familiar, readily available and affordable. At the same time, wood decking problems like splinters, rot and high maintenance cause many headaches.
Although composite wood decking is easier to maintain, some homeowners worry that composites won’t look as nice as wood. However, Green Plank has developed composites that emulate the rich, natural look of wood without the hassles of maintaining a wood deck.
Green Plank composite decking is an environmentally friendly wood alternative that combines recycled plastic and wood/rice shell fibers. Green Plank Composite decking is readily available at most of major building supplies stores throughout the Europe.
