The Benefits of Composite Decking

Perth composite decking boards offer a range of benefits, including resistance to stains and fading, minimal maintenance requirements, and long-term cost savings compared to traditional timber decking.

Additionally, it is an eco-friendly solution with unmatched durability and longevity.

Resistant to Stains and Fading

Imagine spilling a glass of red wine on your deck and not worrying about a stain. Composite decking gives that peace of mind. Its unique material blend resists stains, so messes like sauce spills or mud don’t leave marks.

Enjoy gatherings without the stress of quick clean-ups.

Your deck will keep looking fresh year after year too. Unlike traditional timber, composite materials won’t fade under the harsh Australian sun. You can expect consistent colour even after many summers have passed.

Say goodbye to painting and staining because this decking maintains its vibrant look with minimal effort!

Minimal Maintenance

Composite decking needs little work to stay looking good. You won’t have to sand, stain, or paint it like you would with wood. This saves time and money in the long run. A simple wipe down or a quick wash with soapy water is all it takes to keep your deck fresh and clean.

Forget about termites and other pests; they don’t bother composite timber decking. It stands strong against the elements, never splintering or warping from moisture exposure. Enjoy more time relaxing on your deck rather than fixing it.

Moving on to costs, consider the real price of timber versus composite decking next.

Real Cost of Timber vs Composite Decking

When evaluating the real cost of timber versus composite decking, it’s essential to consider not only the initial price but also the long-term expenses associated with maintenance and durability.

Maintenance costs are significantly lower for composite decking, as it doesn’t require the frequent staining or sealing that timber needs. Moving beyond the real cost of materials, let’s explore our range of composite decking products.

Eco-Friendly Solution

Composite decking makes green living easy. It blends recycled wood fibers and plastics, which means fewer trees are cut down for your deck. Plus, the use of toxic-free chemicals protects the environment from harm.

This makes it a reliable choice year after year.
