When it comes to building a porch or deck for your home, there's no comparison: Composite decking is the greenest and most convenient choice. Unlike wood decking that comes from forests, which needs to be replaced and repainted and will eventually sag and rot, composite decking stands the test of time. Plus, it's made from recycled materials -- often from plastic bags collected in supermarket recycling bins -- and has the look and feel of natural wood. It's also maintenance-free, meaning once you install it, it'll look as good many years later as it did on the first day.
