PVC? decking has come a long way in the past few years.? Plastic decking is 100% recyclable and can be manufactured to look like wood.? It can come in many different colors and grain patterns.
Depending on the climate it may expand and contract, loosening the joints. As well in hot sunny areas it may get very hot on the soles of your feet as well radiate heat.
