Composite Decking

Feeling fed up with the constant maintenance and repair your wooden deck requires? Composite timber decking, a brilliant mix of wood fibres and recycled plastic materials, might be the solution you’re searching for.

Let’s dive in and explore this game-changing alternative to traditional timber decking!

The Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking offers a range of benefits, including minimal maintenance, resistance to stains and fading unmatched durability and longevity, and is an eco-friendly solution compared to timber decking.

Minimal Maintenance

Composite timber decking needs little care. You don’t have to paint, stain, or seal it. It won’t rot, warp, or crack. All you need is a quick sweep and wash with soap and water. This helps it look new for many years.

Resistant to Stains and Fading

Composite decking fights off stains. If you drop food or drinks, it’s not a problem. You can clean it with ease. It doesn’t matter if the stain is from wine or BBQ sauce. It all washes off.

Also, composite decking keeps its colour for years. The sun won’t fade it like other materials. Your deck will look new day after day without any extra work from you!

Actual Cost of Timber vs Composite Decking

The actual cost of timber versus composite decking involves upfront and long-term expenses. When comparing the two, it’s essential to consider the cost of purchase and installation, maintenance, lifespan, and even the environmental impact.

Cost Factors Timber Decking Composite Decking
Initial Purchase and Installation Though the initial cost can be lower, the installation often requires more labour and time due to the complexities of working with natural wood. Composite decking typically has a higher upfront cost.
Maintenance Timber decks require regular maintenance, including cleaning, sanding, staining, and sealing, to prevent deterioration and ensure longevity. Composite decks demand minimal maintenance.
Lifespan With proper care, timber decks can last 10-15 years. However, they can be vulnerable to rot, insect damage, and weathering. It’s designed to handle Australia’s harsh climate conditions, enhancing its durability.
Environmental Impact Timber decking is a natural resource, but harvesting can harm the environment. Composite decking, like Futurewood’s products, is an eco-friendly solution.
