Composite Decking

If you’re fed up with the demanding upkeep and longevity concerns of traditional wood decking at your Baldivis residence, it’s high time you explored a superior alternative. Have you heard about composite decking? It’s a cutting-edge fusion of timber and plastic materials meticulously crafted for lasting durability.

In this blog, we’ll walk you through the myriad advantages of composite decking, from its unparalleled resistance to fading, stains, and mould growth to its eco-friendly credentials compared to conventional timber alternatives.

Ready to embark on a deck upgrade engineered to stand the test of time? Let’s delve into composite decking and discover the perfect solution for your Baldivis home.

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 an eco-friendly solution compared to traditional timber decking.

Minimal Maintenance

Composite decking saves you time and effort on upkeep. It stays firm for a long time with very little work. You don’t need to worry about painting, staining, or sealing it. It is safe from mould growth and damage from algae or mildew.

Unlike timber decks, composite decking needs just basic cleaning. This means more free time for you to enjoy your deck instead of taking care of it!

Resistant to Stains and Fading

Composite decking holds its colour well. Even under the hot sun, it does not fade. Time will not dull or change the look of your deck. This is a crucial advantage over timber decks.

This type of decking also doesn’t stain easily. If you spill food or drinks, you can clean it up quickly. A simple wipe-down is often enough to keep it looking new. You won’t have to worry about deep-seated stains that are hard to remove.

Unmatched Durability and Longevity

Decking boards Perth truly deserve recognition for their exceptional durability. They stand strong against the elements, enduring the harsh rays of the sun, the heavy rains, and even the snow. This remarkable resilience is attributed to their unique composition, combining the strength of wood and plastic in perfect harmony.

With composite decking, you can bid farewell to the worry of splinters or unsightly marks on your deck. It remains consistently smooth, safe, and aesthetically pleasing for many years, ensuring that your outdoor space remains inviting and low-maintenance. Whether it’s the scorching summer sun, torrential rain showers, or the frosty winter chills, composite decking maintains its integrity, making it the ideal choice for a long-lasting and beautiful outdoor oasis.

Eco-Friendly Solution

Composite timber decking is good for our planet. It uses recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber, not fresh trees. This mix makes a strong deckboard. They last long with no need for paint or stain.

These boards don’t rot or grow mould like natural wood can do. It also means fewer bits of the old deck are in the dump sites. Choosing composite decking helps save nature’s resources.

Actual Cost of Timber vs Composite Decking

While timber decks have a lower upfront cost, the overall investment in maintaining the deck in the long run is far more significant. On the other hand, composite decking, with its minimal upkeep and high durability, adds more value to your property, proving to be a cost-effective choice.
