Composite decking is made of wood fiber and recycled plastics. It is the least expensive of the three and the least durable. It has been determined that after several years of adverse conditions, that composite decking will begin to deteriorate. PVC decking is made entirely of plastic and therefore is the most expensive and most durable of the three. It requires the least maintenance, generally just cleaning. Capped products give you the advantages of the PVC surface and the cost of having some composite material in the product. It should be very durable as the only composite product exposed in at the ends of the pieces if you get a wrapped four sides products such as Timbertech. Some brands are not wrapped four sides. So, in recap, Composite is Good, Capped is Better, and PVC is Best as far as durability and longevity. As far as price, general the better the product, the more you pay for the product. Remember, the installation of the product is about the same no matter which you use.
