Composite Decking

Choosing the suitable decking material in Longford can be a challenging task. One popular choice is Futurewood composite decking, a wood fibre blend and recycled plastics. This article will explore the benefits of this eco-friendly alternative to traditional timber decks, providing information on its durability, cost-effectiveness and wide variety of styles.

The Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking boards offer a range of benefits, including resistance to stains and fading, minimal maintenance requirements, cost advantage over timber decking, eco-friendly qualities, and unmatched durability and longevity.

Resistant to Stains and Fading

Composite decking fights off stains. Spills can be wiped clean without a trace left behind. Sunlight does not make it fade, too. In Longford, composite decks keep their intense colour for years.

Minimal Maintenance

Composite decking needs less care than wood decks. There’s no need to stain or seal them each year. With composite decking, you can say goodbye to the hard work of removing mould and mildew spots. All you need is a simple clean now and then.

Actual Cost of Timber vs Composite Decking

When comparing decking options, understanding the true cost is crucial. Timber decking may have a lower initial cost, but ongoing maintenance and potential replacement expenses can make it more costly in the long run. In contrast, composite decking proves cost-effective over time despite a higher upfront investment due to minimal maintenance and durability.

Eco-Friendly Solution

Hobart composite timber decking helps the earth. It uses recycled recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber. This stops waste from going to dumps and the need for new tree harvesting.

Unmatched Durability and Longevity

Composite decking is a tough pick. It lasts much longer than timber decking. Time won’t hurt it much. Harsh weather can’t ruin composite decks like they do wood ones. The deck stays strong and keeps its fresh look for many years. Composite decking gives your outdoor space a sturdy and lasting appeal.
