Composite Decking

Composite decking is a top choice for outdoor space. It’s made from wood and plastic. The mix makes it very strong. It looks like natural wood but doesn’t need much care. This kind of deck can stand up to rain, heat, and cold without any trouble.

It comes in many styles and colours to fit your taste. With composite decking, you don’t have to worry about bugs or rotting. People love it because it lasts long without fading or stain marks.

A great bonus is its green side: the makers usually use recycled materials only!

Advantages of Composite Decking

Composite decking is durable and long-lasting, making it a great choice for outdoor areas. The deck is made with eco-friendly materials, making it a sustainable choice. It also resists fading and stains and stays beautiful with little maintenance.

Unmatched Durability and Longevity

Composite decking lasts a long time. It is more robust than wood and can handle all types of weather. This means it won’t warp, split, or crack. Bugs and other pests don’t like eating it either.

You do not have to paint or stain composite decking boards like you would with timber decking. So, your deck will always look good without much work from you. With composite timber decking, you get a strong deck for many years.

Eco-Friendly Decking Solutions

Wood plastic composite is a friend to our earth. It uses recycled materials that help cut down on waste. Old wood and plastic bags get a new life as your deck. This way, fewer trees are cut down too.

Also, composite decks don’t need harsh chemicals for upkeep. They stay looking great without harming the world around them. They last a long time, so you’re not always buying new stuff!

Actual Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking

When comparing the cost of timber vs. composite decking, remember that timber may seem cheaper initially, but long-term costs may differ. Below, we compare the costs of both materials over their lifetimes.

Cost FactorsTimberComposite
Initial Material CostLowerHigher
Installation CostDepends on the Complexity of the ProjectGenerally Lower Due To Easy Installation Process
Maintenance Cost Over TimeHigher As Regular Sealing, Staining And Replacement Of Damaged Boards Is RequiredLower As It Does Not Require Regular Sealing Or Staining
LongevityShorter Due To Susceptibility to Rotting and Termite DamageLonger As It’s Resistant to Rotting and Termite Damage
Overall Lifetime CostHigher Due to Regular Maintenance and a Shorter LifespanLower Due to Minimal Maintenance and a Longer Lifespan

As you can see from the table, while the initial cost of composite decking is generally higher than timber, it is more cost-effective in the long run due to lower maintenance and replacement costs, coupled with excellent durability. Hence, it’s a wise investment for homeowners looking for a decking solution that offers value for money.

Resilient Against Fading and Stains

Composite decking shines in all kinds of weather. It keeps its bright colours, even after many sunny days. Stains don’t stick to the surface, either. Spills can be wiped off quickly and easily.

You won’t have to worry about ugly dirt stains or faded spots on your deck.

Minimal Maintenance Requirements

Composite decking is well-known for being low-maintenance, making it a hassle-free alternative to regular wooden decking. Composite decking is easier to maintain than timber decks. It doesn’t need regular sanding, staining, or painting to look good.

Composite decking makes maintenance easier by eliminating labour-intensive tasks. A simple cleaning regimen using soapy water and a brush just twice a year is sufficient to keep your composite deck looking pristine. Composite decking is easy to maintain, saving you time. It’s practical for busy people.
