Composite Decking

Futurewood Composite Decking is an excellent choice for creating the perfect outdoor space for homeowners throughout  Darwin and the surrounding areas. Their decking boards are exceptional and will keep their looks for years.

The Advantages of Composite Decking in Darwin

Composite boards offer several advantages over traditional timber decking. It requires minimal maintenance, is resistant to fading and stains, provides unrivalled durability and longevity, and is an eco-friendly decking solution.

Minimal Maintenance Requirements

You will love composite decking for its low upkeep needs. It does not need paint or sealant like other decks do. All you need to do is clean it with a deck brush and soapy water now and then. This makes it easy for you to keep your deck looking great all year round.

Resistant to Fading and Stains

Composite decking fights off sun rays and spills. This makes it a good choice for places like Darwin, where the sun shines bright. Your deck will keep its colour for years, even in hot weather.

Futurewood composite decking boards look as good as new, even after many years of use. They withstand harsh sunlight and accidental spills without losing their charm or needing lots of care.

Unrivalled Durability and Longevity

Composite decking lasts a long time. It beats other materials in strength and lifespan, and they stand up to harsh weather and heavy use.

Unlike real wood, they don’t rot or wear out quickly. This makes them great for places like Darwin, where the climate can be tough on decks. Composite timber decking gives you a strong deck that looks good for years.

An Eco-Friendly Decking Solution

Composite decking is good for the earth. We take great pride in our eco-friendly ethos, seamlessly integrating recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber into our designs.

The design looks like real wood but saves trees because no new wood is used. Also, it lasts long and needs less care than real wood decks. So you won’t need harsh cleaning chemicals often.

Real Cost of Timber vs Composite Decking in Darwin

When comparing the cost of timber and composite decking, one must consider the initial purchase price, maintenance cost, and durability.

Materials Initial Cost Maintenance Cost Durability
Timber Decking Depends on the wood species, which is generally lower than composite decking. Regular maintenance such as sealing, staining, and painting increases the ongoing costs. Depending on the type of wood and maintenance, durability can vary, but generally, it’s less than composite decking.
Composite Decking Generally higher priced than timber decking, Composite decking products are available from Futurewood throughout Darwin. Maintenance costs for composite decks are minimal, requiring only cleaning. This makes them an economical choice in the long run. Composite decking, made from recycled wood and plastic materials, offers durability.

In summary, whilst timber decking may have a lower initial cost, the regular maintenance costs and shorter lifespan make it a more expensive option in the long run. On the other hand, composite decking may have a higher upfront cost, but its minimal maintenance requirements and longer lifespan make it a better investment over time.
