Composite Decking

Moranbah, the well-liked spot in Queensland’s Eastern Suburbs, loves plastic wood decking. This outdoor innovation is both tough and good-looking. It provides a significant change from usual timber decks.

Our wood-plastic composite decks are loved by people living here. These decks don’t splinter or slip, so they’re safer for bare feet, kids and pets.

Composite decking has proven its worth since 2009 in Australia. Withstand harsh weather? No problem! We use wood and plastic to make our decks strong enough to face any climate condition.

Our brand is number one in Australia with a well-known name – Ekodeck! You can find our products at Bunnings Warehouse, too.

Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking offers numerous benefits, such as low maintenance, exceptional durability and longevity, eco-friendliness, fade and stain resistance, and a real cost advantage over traditional timber decking.

Low Maintenance

You will love how easy it is to take care of composite decking. It needs less work than wood decks. Say goodbye to painting, staining, or sealing every year. You only need to wash it with soapy water now and then.

This way, you have more time for fun on your deck. Plus, no splinters mean it’s safe for kids and pets too!

Durability and Longevity

Composite decking lasts for many years. It fights off rot, bugs and mould. It stands up to the hot sun and wild storms. Brisbane composite timber decking stays strong through all types of weather. This is good news for homes in Moranbah, where the climate can be challenging.

You will not need to replace your deck often with composite decking boards. They are made to last longer than standard wood decks. We have tested our products since 2009 and know they stand the test of time.

Environmentally Friendly

We care about our planet. So, we make sure our composite decking is kind to the earth. It’s made from wood and plastic that would have been thrown away. By using these materials, we save trees and cut down on waste.

Plus, our boards don’t need paint or stain. That means fewer harsh chemicals in your yard and less environmental harm. We’re proud that our decking is green for outdoor spaces in Moranbah and beyond.

Fade and Stain Resistance

You’ll love our decks for their fade and stain resistance. With a composite deck, there’s no need to worry about spills or messes from your outdoor parties. Even the hot Queensland sun can’t dull the colour of your decking! Our quality materials ensure that bright colours stay vibrant for years.

Enjoy worry-free barbecues and fun family times outdoors on your beautiful, long-lasting deck.

Actual Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking

When considering the actual costs of decking materials, looking at more than just the initial purchase price is essential. Both timber and composite decking have expenses over their lifespan, affecting the overall cost.

Timber Decking Composite Decking
Initial Purchase Cost Cost can be lower than composite, depending on the wood type. The initial cost is higher than most traditional timber decks.
Maintenance Cost Requires regular sanding, staining, and sealing. This can add to the yearly cost. Low maintenance; occasional cleaning with soap and water suffices.
Longevity It depends on upkeep and weather conditions but is generally less durable than composite. Engineered to withstand harsh climatic conditions, it can last up to 25-30 years.
Environmental Impact Cutting down trees contributes to deforestation; not all timber is sustainably sourced. Composed of recycled wood and plastic, it is a more sustainable choice.
Replacement Costs Wooden boards may need replacement more often due to damage or rot. Less prone to damage or rot; likely to have fewer replacement costs.

It’s clear from the comparison that while timber might seem cheaper initially, considering the ongoing maintenance and replacement costs, composite decking becomes a cost-effective solution in the long run. Moreover, our composite decking, as a leading brand in Australia, is crafted to endure Queensland’s harsh weather conditions, ensuring durability and longevity.
