Tips for Buying Composite Lumber
Composite lumber is an amazing alternative material for wood products. These are made of woods fiber, plastic and sometimes wood covered with plastic sheeting. Using these products has a lot of advantages. For instance: since, plastic is waterproof, they do not get rotten, even after a prolonged exposure to water and moisture. Moreover, these are not affected by insects and bugs and hence, are not damaged that easily. However, there are certain kinds of plastics which should never be purchased, that are detrimental both for the health and the environment.
Purchasing composite lumber is always a good idea as one can save his or her cost. Here are certain guidelines for purchasing plastic lumbers:
• While purchasing plastic lumbers, one must always choose recyclable and re-usable materials. These kinds of plastic are made out of low density polyethylene or LDPE and high density polyethylene or HDPE. It is advised to go for this material, since; these can be easily procured and recycled as well. This kind of plastic is also used for manufacturing water containers and dairy product containers.
• One should strictly not go for plastic made out of polystyrene and PLs with PVC. These are not re-usable, decomposable and recyclable plastics.
• One should avoid going for plastics with fiberglass, since; they can cause pulmonary lung disease. However, this type of plastic is hard and sturdy. They can be used for chairs, benches, or tables.
It should be mentioned that plastic sheeting should always be purchased from producers, who procure them from local municipal recycling centers. It is also worth mentioning that that those products should be avoided which are made of non-recyclable plastic. Those composite lumbers are the best which have more than fifty percent recycled plastic material. Thus, these guidelines would help you to choose the best plastic lumbers.
