Can Plastic Lumber Be Used For Any Construction Project?
Absolutely. Our plastic lumber has been used to build decks, docks, boardwalks, furniture, barns, horse stall doors, benches, and so much more. You can do anything with plastic lumber that you can with traditional wood lumber.
Is Plastic Lumber As Strong As Wood?
Yes, plastic lumber is as strong as wood and some lumber grade are even stronger. For example, Molded Grade plastic lumber is fiberglass reinforced, making it perfect for areas with high foot traffic and even vehicle traffic.
How Long Does Plastic Lumber Last?
Plastic lumber will last for decades – in fact, many of the original projects built in 1990 when Plastic Lumber Yard first opened are still exist. Since plastic doesn’t absorb water or oils, it won’t ever rot, crack, or splinter. It also doesn’t attract insects that could cause damage.
Recycled Plastic Lumber: An Eco-Friendly Wood Alternative
Made entirely from recycled plastics that were once land and ocean bound, recycled plastic lumber is actually a safer alternative to pressure treated wood.
Pressure treated wood is created by using pressure created by a vacuum to flood the wood with chemicals. These chemicals, often a type of pesticide, will slowly leach into the environment over time.
Plastic does not have this issue and can be used in any capacity, even in gardening and farming.
