We care about our earth. That’s why we use only eco-friendly materials in our composite decking. Our woods are not taken from nature but are made of recycled timber and plastics. This helps to cut down on waste in landfills.

We don’t need harmful paints or stains to keep the decks looking good. So, no nasty chemicals enter your home’s air or soil. Our methods save trees and help to create a cleaner world for all of us!

Actual Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking

Understanding the long-term costs associated with timber and composite decking can help homeowners make an informed decision. Here is a comparative analysis of both materials to provide a clear picture.

Cost Component Timber Decking Composite Decking
Initial Installation Less expensive upfront. Costs can vary depending on the type of wood used. It’s more expensive upfront. However, the overall cost can be offset by the longevity and durability of the material.
Maintenance Requires regular maintenance like staining and sealing, adding to the overall cost. Timber is also prone to splitting and rotting, requiring additional repair expenses. Requires minimal maintenance, eliminating the costs of stains, sealers, and repairs. This could result in significant long-term savings.
Longevity Timber decks have a shorter lifespan and may require replacement or major repairs within 10-15 years. Composite decks are designed to last decades, making them a long-term investment. They are built to withstand Australia’s harsh climate, increasing their lifespan.
Environmental Impact Timber decking contributes to deforestation and has a larger carbon footprint due to the regular maintenance required. Composite decking is made from recycled materials, contributing to waste reduction. It also requires less maintenance, reducing its environmental impact.

Remember, the actual cost of a deck is not just the initial installation but also the ongoing maintenance and eventual replacement costs. By considering all these factors, it’s evident that composite decking offers long-term cost benefits despite its higher upfront cost.
