The classic and still the most popular deck material. Natural wood is your best bet when you want to save on costs and don't want anything complicated.The decking also has a natural look and feel that the other materials lack. 

 Choose wood-composite decking when you want a material that closely resembles an exotic wood species. If you have children or just like walking barefoot, wood-composite ensures that you will avoid splinters. Perhaps the best benefit of wood-composite decking is that is guaranteed not to rot or split, and it never needs a stain or other protective finish. 

It is lightweight and has the same density as white pine, a softwood. Some PVC decking is "capped," meaning that a protective shell is added to the surface that also gives it a wood-like look.Like wood-composite, PVC decking does not rot and never needs to be finished. Some homeowners simply like the look of PVC more than with the other materials.
