Composite Decking

Ararat is a place made beautiful by Futurewood composite decking. This decking uses recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber. So it stays strong, lasts for a long time, and even the weather does not hurt it. Also, it does not go bad or warp like regular wood.

People in Ararat love this type of decking because it feels good on bare feet. It also makes their homes look nice with many colours to choose from.

The best part? Composite decking is friendly to our Earth! It’s made from stuff we have already used and no longer need. That means fewer trees are cut down and less plastic in landfills. So when you pick composite decking from Futurewood, you help Ararat stay beautiful while caring for our planet.

Advantages of Composite Decking

Melbourne composite decking offers numerous advantages over traditional timber decking. Compared to timber, the cost of composite decking is lower in the long run, as it requires minimal maintenance and lasts longer.

It is also resilient against fading and stains, making it an attractive choice for outdoor spaces. Additionally, composite decking is eco-friendly and provides unmatched durability and longevity.

Actual Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking

When comparing the cost of timber and composite decking, it’s vital to understand the initial investment and ongoing maintenance costs.

Timber Decking Composite Decking
Initial Cost Generally less expensive initially. It has a slightly higher upfront cost but can be offset by durability and low maintenance.
Maintenance Cost Requires regular staining, sealing, and sometimes painting, which adds to the overall cost. Minimal maintenance is needed
Longevity It can be prone to rot, splintering, and warping, which may result in replacement costs. Highly resistant to rot, splintering, and warping, ensuring a long-lasting investment.
Cost Over Time Although less expensive upfront, the cost of ongoing maintenance and potential replacement can make timber decking more costly in the long run. While the initial investment is slightly higher, the low maintenance requirements and durability of composite decking make it a more cost-effective option over time.

Always remember that composite decking provides an eco-friendly decking solution that tends to be more cost-effective over time and contributes to the preservation of our forests.

Resilient Against Fading and Stains

Composite decking boards stand up to the sun. They do not fade like other products. The colour stays bright and fresh for many years.

They also resist stains well. If you drop food or drinks, it’s not a problem! Just wipe it off with ease. With this type of decking, your deck will always look clean and new.

Minimal Maintenance Needed

Composite decking saves you time and effort. It does not need paint, stain or seal. There’s no worry about rot or bugs eating the boards. It only requires a simple clean now and then to keep it looking fresh.

This gives you more time to enjoy your deck instead of working on it.
