Composite Decking

Composite decking from Futurewood is a top choice in Portland. It wins against the usual wood decking. This deck type mixes wood fibres and recycled plastic. The result is a deck that lasts long and needs little care. Splinters or rot do not spoil it like they can with wood decks.

Futurewood composite timber decking comes in a variety of colours and wood patterns. So, you get to pick what suits you best for your outdoor space!

Weather, warp – these issues don’t bug composite decks much, either! Many makers promise that their products last up to 25 years or more.

Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking offers numerous benefits for homeowners in Portland. It requires low maintenance, is highly durable, and has a long lifespan. Additionally, it is environmentally friendly and resistant to fading and staining.

The latter is more cost-effective when comparing the actual cost of timber versus composite decking.

Low Maintenance

Composite decking is easy to look after. You don’t need to paint, stain, or seal it. It doesn’t rot or splinter like wood does. This saves you time and money in the long run. Plus, with composite decking, you won’t get any nasty splinters! All you need to do is give it a quick wash now and then.

Just like that, your deck stays shiny and new for many years!

Durability and Longevity

Melbourne composite decking boards show off its strength year after year. It lasts long and fights off harm from sun, rain, wind or bugs. This kind of decking beats regular wood decks that warp and splinter over time. You can feel safe using composite decking in your home because it will not rot or break down.

Futurewood trusts its product’s ability to last through all sorts of weather. So, you can pick this tough and long-lasting choice for your deck without worry.

The fact that it looks as good as natural timber makes it even better!

Environmentally Friendly

Composite decking helps our earth. It uses recycled materials, including recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber. This step saves trees and keeps waste out of landfills.

So, with composite decking, you get a great deck and do good for nature, too!

Fade and Stain Resistance

Synthetic decking is a formidable contender in the battle against fading and staining. It’s designed to maintain its fresh, pristine appearance for many years, even with occasional wine spills or barbecue sauce splatters. The relentless onslaught of sunlight doesn’t stand a chance of dulling its vibrant colour either. This means a deck that stands the test of time while requiring minimal effort to keep it looking like new.

With composite decking, you can enjoy the beauty of your outdoor space without the constant worry and hard maintenance work, allowing you to savour every moment spent on your deck.

Actual Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking

The long-term costs of timber and composite decking can vary significantly. Despite the higher initial cost of composite decking, its durability and low-maintenance nature can make it a more cost-efficient choice in the long run. Review the comparison table below for a clear breakdown of the costs associated with timber and composite decking.

Aspect Timber Decking Composite Decking
Initial Cost Lower initial cost. Higher initial cost.
Maintenance Cost Requires regular maintenance, including sanding, staining, and sealing. This can increase the overall cost. Requires minimal maintenance, saving money over time.
Longevity It can warp, split, or rot over time, leading to replacement costs. Durable and resistant to weather, warping, and rot. Known for its longevity, some manufacturers offer up to 25-year warranties.
Environment Impact Harvesting of timber for decking can impact the environment negatively. Made from recycled materials, composite decking is a more sustainable option.

The table above clearly shows the cost and value benefits of choosing composite decking over timber. Despite the initial investment, the long-term savings in maintenance and replacement costs and environmental benefits make composite decking an attractive option.

Co-Extrusion Decking

Co-extrusion decking is one of the best choices for your deck. It’s made with a hard outer shell. This gives it strong protection from the sun and other harsh weather. Walking on, even without shoes, is also safe because it does not splinter.

Bush Fire Attack Level (BAL) 29 Rated

Our decking boards are Bush Fire Attack Level (BAL) 29 rated. This rating means they can bear up to a high fire exposure level. This is very important in places like Portland, where bushfires can happen.
