Composite Decking

jnarchitects | Posted in Green Products and Materials on

Does anyone have a source for composite decking that does NOT have an embossed wood grain pattern? Looking for no pattern or a machined groove pattern or similar.

Fiberon used to have a nice looking no pattern composite, but it has been discontinued.

    Timbertech Twin Finish is machine grooved on the "back" side.

    how sure are we regarding this style of decking that the materials are all quality and trusted ? :/

    I believe NewTechWood has a textured side and a flat side.

    I think a lot of the patterned composites are there for more than just trying to look like wood. The decking is an outdoor walking surface where a smooth finish could be pretty slippery when wet.
