WPC decking is a popular outdoor floor material in recent years. It has many advantages, such as long service life, low maintenance cost, various optional colors, and natural appearance. But people often ask: “Does WPC Decking Get Hot?”

First of all, we need to know that, in summer, all materials exposed to direct sunlight will absorb heat and become hot. There are many factors that affect the overall temperature of the decking, such as the time of exposure to the sun, the color, and density of the decking, etc. But in fact, our WPC decking is no hotter than traditional wooden decking. Techwoodn’s decking is made of wood fiber and recycled plastic particles, and with our advanced manufacturing technology, it has excellent heat resistance and will not crack or shrink like wood flooring due to long-time exposure.

How to reduce the impact of temperature on the decking?

If you install it in a place where the summer is long and hot, you can choose light-colored decking to reduce heat absorption as we offer a variety of colors to choose from. In addition to choosing different materials, planting trees or using sunshades can also help to reduce direct sunlight.
