1. Can plastic wood deck be exposed to the sun?


Plastic wood deck is a popular outdoor flooring material in recent years. It has many advantages, such as: long service life, low maintenance cost, a variety of optional colors and natural appearance. However, people often doubt that whether plastic wood flooring could be exposed to the sun? The answer is of course yes.


First of all, we need to know that, after all, all materials will absorb heat and become hot when exposed to direct sunlight in summer. There are many factors that affect the temperature of plastic wood flooring, such as the time of direct sunlight, the color and density of the floor, which will affect the overall temperature. But in fact, WPC decking is less hotter than traditional wood flooring.


Plastic wood deck is made of wood fibers and recycled plastic particles, and our advanced manufacturing process endows it with excellent heat resistance, and it will not crack and shrink due to long-term exposure like wood flooring.


2. How to maintain the plastic wood deck?


Plastic wood deck has many advantages compared to traditional solid wood flooring and it is becoming more and more popular now. But no kind of floor is 100% completely maintenance-free. It's just that the maintenance is simpler than traditional pressure-treated wood floors, and there is no need to worry about regular sanding, staining and painting.


In terms of actual use, a small amount of regular maintenance is still needed for the wood-plastic floor to extend its service life. If the place is hot in summer, you can choose a lighter-colored floor to reduce heat absorption. In addition to the choice of materials, planting trees to shade or adding parasols can also reduce direct sunlight.
