Composite Decking

Are you tired of your conventional timber deck’s constant maintenance, staining, and fading? Did you know composite decking solves these challenges and more? Our article today offers clear insights into the benefits of composite decking in Braddon and how it adds value to your property.

Let’s uncover why futurewood is becoming the preferred choice for homeowners.

The Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking offers a range of benefits, including minimal maintenance, resistance to stains and fading, unmatched durability and longevity, an eco-friendly solution, and a cost-effective alternative to timber decking.

Minimal Maintenance

Canberra decking needs very little care. You don’t have to paint, stain, or seal it. Just a simple clean now and then is enough. This gives you more time to enjoy your deck instead of working on it!

Resistant to Stains and Fading

Composite decking boards don’t stain or fade fast. They keep looking new for a long time. If you spill anything, clean it with soapy water.

With composite timber decking, your deck keeps its colour. No need to apply any paint or finish. This saves you time and effort on upkeep tasks.

Unmatched Durability and Longevity

Composite deck holds up for years and years. It fights off rot, decay, and damage from insects. No matter the weather or heavy foot traffic, it stays strong. You don’t need to replace composite decking boards often.

Eco-Friendly Solution

Choosing composite timber decking is a green choice. They are made from recycled materials like plastic and wood waste. No new trees get cut down for their making. This makes them friendly to our earth.

You don’t need harsh chemicals to keep them clean, safe and shiny!

Actual Cost of Timber vs Composite Decking

While timber decking has a lower initial cost than composite decking, the latter proves more cost-effective in the long run. Timber requires regular maintenance and may need earlier replacement due to weathering, leading to potential loss of value. In contrast, composite decking, though initially more expensive, boasts minimal maintenance and a longer lifespan, reducing overall costs and maintaining its value over time.
