Aluminum decking may not be for everyone for the only reason being the price tag. Aluminum decking won’t rot, rust, warp, splinter, or crack and is mold and slip resistant. Its powder coated finish lasts virtually forever and it’ll never peel or blister. Aluminum can’t catch fire, wood-boring bugs hate it, and it’s cryogenically strong, meaning it doesn’t get brittle in extremely cold weather. And, it’s totally recyclable.
When compared with wood, wood composite and PVC composite, aluminum decking is three to four times lighter, yet two to three times stronger. Aluminum decking actually stays cooler in the sun than most other types of decking because of the metal’s superior heat-dissipation properties.
Most aluminum planks have interlocking edges, which create gap-free, watertight decks. Built-in, self-draining channels collect and dispose of rainwater. Provided you can keep the channels debris-free, the feature is particularly useful for second-story decks since the space below stays dry.
