Composite Decking

So, we’re diving into the world of composite decking, and trust us, it’s a game-changer. Imagine decking boards that mix wood with plastic to give you the best of both worlds – yep, that’s composite timber decking for you.

Advantages of Composite Decking

Composite wood decking lasts longer and is more durable, making it a reliable choice for your outdoor space. It’s eco-friendly, resistant to fading and stains, with minimal maintenance needed – giving you more time to enjoy your deck.

Unmatched Durability and Longevity

We’ve all heard the horror stories, right? You spend a heap of cash decking out your outdoor space, only for it to warp, fade, or crack faster than you can say “barbecue season.” That’s where our composite decking boards swoop in to save the day.

Eco-Friendly Decking Solutions

Okay, so we’re pretty excited about this – our composite decking is a green thumbs-up for folks who love the planet as much as their backyard. It’s made from recycled materials, which means less waste ending up in landfills.

Resilient Against Fading and Stains

So, we’ve talked about how our decking is kind to the planet. Now, let’s chat about how it stands up against fading and stains. Honestly, it’s like some sort of magic. Our composite decking doesn’t mind if the sun is blasting down all day or if a surprise BBQ spill happens.

Minimal Maintenance Requirements

Our composite decking really comes into its own with the “set and forget” approach. Imagine this – no more weekends lost to sanding, staining, or painting your deck. That’s right, you can kick back and enjoy a cuppa instead.

Our decks just need a simple clean now and then. A bit of soap and water, and hey presto – it looks as good as new.

Bush Fire Attack Level (BAL) 29 Rated

From a rainbow of colours and various styles, let’s switch gears to something super important – especially if you’re living in an area prone to bushfires. Our composite decking is rated at the Bush Fire Attack Level (BAL) 29.

This means the BAL 29 decking can stand up pretty well against those scary flames during a bushfire. 

Alright, so BAL 29 composite decking that resists fire? Yep, that’s right! It’s made to be tough against heat and sparks flying around during those hot months when fires are more likely to happen.
