Reply To: Does composite decking fade or lighten over time?

Gaurav Bengani

Composite decking is designed to be highly resistant to fading or lightening over time. Unlike natural wood, which can be prone to discoloration and fading due to exposure to sunlight and the elements, composite decking is engineered to withstand such effects.

However, it’s important to note that no decking material is completely immune to the effects of prolonged sun exposure and weathering. Over an extended period, some slight fading or lightening may occur, especially in areas with intense sunlight or in climates with extreme weather conditions. The rate and extent of any color change will also depend on the maintenance and care provided to the composite decking.
