Why Choose White Composite Decking

If you’re looking for white composite decking, you’re likely interested in:

  • A versatile color that goes with anything.
  • A bright, clean aesthetic.
  • Decking that stays cooler in the heat.
  • Decking that matches the white trim on your home.

Why Choose a White-Adjacent Color

Our decking portfolio offers you contemporary grays and airy, light tans that offer all the aesthetic and performance benefits of white – and then some.

Gray and tan are less likely to show dirt and debris as quickly, which means fewer deck cleaning days for you. They also hit design-forward style notes and are highly sought after by lovers of clean, contemporary home aesthetics.

White Isn’t the Only Color That Stays Cool

Sleek & Refined

Offset the brightness of your white deck boards with dark outdoor furniture for sharp contrast that lends your deck a sleek, contemporary feel.

How to Examine Your Boards

To ensure you choose the perfect color for your outdoor living space, order free samples of white and lighter colored deck boards and place them in the area your deck will be built. Observe how they look at different times of the day and in different lighting.

Keep in mind when viewing your samples at home that the boards’ colors will look brighter or darker depending on several factors:

  • Lighting – In lower light, the deck boards will appear darker, while in brighter light, they will appear lighter.
  • The colors around the boards – Furnishings and decor can affect the perceived color of your deck boards – darker furniture, for instance, will create a greater contrast to white or light deck boards and make them appear brighter.
  • The angle at which light hits the deck boards or at which they’re viewed can affect the appearance of your deck boards, making them appear lighter or darker. Set your boards out in different lighting at different times of day to really get a feel for how your deck would look.

Now that you have a better feel for both the light and white composite decking we offer, order up to four free samples to get a close-up of our nature-inspired deck boards.
