Composite Decking

Huntingdale homes are seeing more and more backyards with composite decking. It’s a mix of wood fibers and plastics that becomes a sturdy deck material. People in this Melbourne suburb choose it because they want something tough for their outdoor spaces.

Composite timber decking fits well in Huntingdale gardens. It stands up to the weather without getting damaged or faded. Families love it because it doesn’t split or get slippery, which is great for kids and pets playing outside.

Plus, there are options like hollow or solid decking boards to match any project needs.

Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking offers a range of benefits, including low maintenance requirements, exceptional durability and longevity, and resistance to fading and staining. It’s also an environmentally friendly option compared to traditional timber decking.

Low Maintenance

Maintaining a deck can take up a lot of time and effort. With composite decking boards, you spend less time on upkeep and more on enjoying your outdoor space. These decks don’t need sanding, staining, or painting like traditional timber does.

They won’t rot or decay either. Thanks to their durable blend of wood and plastic, they stand strong against insects and weather damage.

Huntingdale homes love the easy care that synthetic decking offers. Just a simple wash with soap and water keeps them looking new. No harsh chemicals are needed to protect these decks from the elements.

They stay safe for kids and pets without any splinters or slips. This way, you save not just on maintenance costs but also get peace of mind with its long-lasting quality.

Durability and Longevity

Composite decking in Huntingdale stands up to the test of time. It resists rot, decay, and damage from insects. With its tough makeup, it doesn’t splinter or warp like traditional wood.

This means your deck will look great for years without a lot of work.

Our products are especially long-lasting. Take our solid decking options; they’re heavy and robust, giving them extra strength to handle lots of foot traffic. Even our hollow composite decking is sturdy enough for Melbourne’s backyards.

Choose Futurewood, and you invest in a deck that lasts longer than timber without the need for constant care.

Environmentally Friendly

Composite decking helps the earth. It uses recycled materials like wood scraps and plastic. By choosing composite, you stop waste from going to landfills. You also avoid cutting down more trees for your deck.

Our decks don’t need harsh chemicals or stains to last long. This is good for the soil and water around your home. Enjoy a beautiful deck and feel great about helping the planet too!

Fade and Stain Resistance

Your deck will keep its fresh look for years, thanks to composite decking’s fade and stain resistance. Enjoy BBQs and outdoor parties without worrying about spills or mess. Sunlight and rain won’t dull your deck’s color either.

Your family can play, relax, and eat on it, all while the deck stays bright and clean with very little effort from you.

Cleaning is easy; just use soap and water to wash away any dirt or stains. No need for special cleaners or hours of scrubbing. This makes it a smart choice for busy families who love spending time outdoors but not doing extra work.

Real Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking

Understanding the true cost of timber versus composite decking involves looking beyond the initial purchase price to the long-term expenses associated with maintenance and durability. Let’s examine these costs in detail.

Composite decking’s value becomes evident when considering the reduction in maintenance, longevity, and the eco-friendly benefits it offers.
