The Real Lumber Alternative

Depending on what material the sawdust is blended with — polyethylene or polypropylene — WPC can be used for a variety of construction projects in much the same way as natural lumber. Drilling, planing, sanding; it’s all done just as easily with WPC as it is with wood.

Construction professionals may even find that wood fasteners, like nails and screws, actually achieve a better hold in WPC as compared to regular wood. Additionally, WPC is less likely to split or break when screws are used near the end of the planks, which can be a common problem when using real wood.
