Composite Decking

Composite decking is a top choice in Belconnen. This type of decking uses boards made from plastic and wood fibres. It gives you the look of timber but with added benefits. These boards do not crack, warp or split like actual wood can.

They stay cool underfoot when it’s hot outside, too! Plus, pests such as termites don’t eat them!

Belconnen homes now have decks that are safe, strong and easy to care for because of composite decking. Futurewood offers high-quality composite timber decking here. We make sure your deck looks good for years without much work from your side.

Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking offers a range of benefits, including durability and longevity, low maintenance requirements, fade and stain resistance, environmental friendliness, and cost-effectiveness compared to timber decking.

Durability and Longevity

Composite decking lasts longer than timber. It fights off rot, warp and split. It has stood up to harsh weather, sun, and heavy foot traffic for years. This makes it a smart choice for busy homes and high-traffic areas.

You don’t have to worry about replacing your deck every few years, as composite decks can last 25 to 30 years or more!

Low Maintenance

Composite decking is simple to take care of. You don’t need any special tools or products for it. Just sweep the dirt and leaves off with a broom. If you see a stain, clean it up with some soap and water.

You won’t have to paint or seal composite decking boards. They keep their colour for many years without fading. This cuts down the time and money you spend on upkeep tasks. No more worrying about rotting wood or bugs eating away at your deck!

Fade and Stain Resistance

Composite decking does not fade or stain like timber decks. This makes them better for long-term use. Without worry, you can spill food, drinks or other stuff on composite decking boards.

Cleaning up is also easy. You only need a brush and soapy water to make it look new!

Environmentally Friendly

Composite decking is good for our earth. It uses recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber. This means fewer trees are cut down to make it. Also, it saves old plastic from going to waste. So, choosing composite decking helps to keep our forests green and reduces the amount of plastic waste on our planet.

Actual Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking

Several factors must be considered when comparing the cost of timber and composite decking. These include the upfront costs, the lifespan of the decking materials, and long-term maintenance costs.

AspectTimber DeckingComposite Decking
Upfront CostsGenerally less expensive than composite deckingThe initial price may be higher than timber, although the price has been decreasing in recent years.
LifespanRequires regular maintenance and can be subject to wear and tear, potentially reducing its lifespanComposite decking is highly durable and can last many years with minimal maintenance.
Long-term Maintenance CostsMaintenance involves regular cleaning, staining, and possibly replacing damaged boards, which can add up over time.The low-maintenance nature of composite decking can save a lot of money over time, as it does not require staining, sanding or sealing.

While the upfront cost of composite decking may be higher, the long-term savings in maintenance and durability often make it a more cost-effective choice in the long run. Futurewood offers high-quality, sustainable composite decking that provides excellent value for money.
