Fade and Stain Resistance


Composite decking Canberra is great at fighting off stains. A coffee spill or some dirt won’t hurt it. Wipes clean in a snap! Fading from the sun won’t happen, either. The colour stays fresh and bright for years, even under Australia’s hot sun.

Environmentally Friendly


Composite decking is kind to the earth. Incorporating recycled polyolefin sourced from post-industrial waste, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber is a cornerstone of our approach. This cuts down on waste and helps save our forests. Futurewood is a popular choice in Australia and sets an example for being green.


Real Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking


Considering the long-term costs when deciding between traditional timber and composite decking is essential.


Factors Timber Decking Composite Decking
Initial Cost Timber deckings, such as Merbau or Spotted Gum, tend to have a lower initial cost. Composite decking, such as Futurewood, generally has a higher upfront cost.
Maintenance Costs Timber decking requires regular upkeep, including staining and painting, which can add to the total cost over time. Composite low-maintenance decking does not require staining or painting, saving money in the long run.
Life Span A well-maintained timber deck can last for around 15 years. Composite decking can last for many years due to its durability and resistance to weather. Futurewood offers a no-fuss warranty.
Environmental Impact Timber decking can have a higher environmental impact due to deforestation. However, it depends on the source of the timber. Composite decking, made from a blend of recycled materials, is a more sustainable choice, influencing its popularity in environmentally-conscious Australia.
