Cons of Wood Plastic Composite decking

Wood Plastic Composite Has Less heat resistance

WPC decking has less heat resistance than traditional wood. If you keep hot utensils on it there is a high chance of melting if the temperature is likely more than 70oC. For the same reason, the laser cutter cannot be used on these kinds of boards.

The initial cost is high

Natural woods are less costly than wood plastic composites though the maintenance costs are higher for the woods. But if you see the bigger picture like longevity and less effort in cleaning then the price is not that high.

Artificial materials

Wood fiver and virgin thermoplastics are being used here. So if you are looking for a 100% natural wood product, this board is not for you. It doesn’t have natural woods texture so it lacks the feeling of natural wood.

Composite Wood is Heavier than wood

If you are fond of lighter materials this is bad news for you. Composite wood is is heavier than natural wood. However, that  also makes it more durable but that’s a different thing. Even some companies nowadays provide hollow composite decking which is lighter than solid ones.
