Composite Decking

Are you seeking a durable, stylish, maintenance-free decking solution in Kalbarri? Did you know composite decking can withstand harsh Australian climate conditions effortlessly? This blog will provide insights on the benefits of composite decking from Futurewood and why it’s an ideal choice for your next project.

The Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking offers a range of benefits, including minimal maintenance requirements, resistance to stains and fading, unmatched durability and longevity, and an eco-friendly solution compared to timber decking.

Minimal Maintenance

Composite decking needs very little care to keep it looking great. You need a sweep and a wash now and then. There is no need for paints or oil. Composite decks won’t splinter, warp, or rot like wood can do.

Synthetic wood decking crafted from materials like PVC or composite blends, offers a durable, low-maintenance, and weather-resistant alternative to natural wood, providing an aesthetic akin to wood while enduring varying environmental conditions.

Resistant to Stains and Fading

Composite decking is strong against stains and fading. It keeps its good look for a long time. The bright sun in Kalbarri can make other deck boards disappear fast. But not composite timber decking! Tea, wine or oil spills are no fuss either. A quick cleaning with soap and water will take care of it all.

Unmatched Durability and Longevity

Composite decking lasts long. Harsh weather can’t damage it. It mixes recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber, so it can stand tough for many years. This means the deck will still look new after a long time, even in hot spots like Kalbarri.

Eco-Friendly Solution

Our commitment to sustainability is evident in our use of recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber. So, we don’t harvest fresh trees or contribute to landfills.

Actual Cost of Timber vs Composite Decking

The cost of timber and composite decking varies, with several factors coming into play. Let’s explore them in the table below.

Maintenance Demanding and costly. Timber decks require regular sealing, staining or painting to maintain their look and prevent decay. Minimal maintenance.
Durability Varies depending on the type of wood. Some are susceptible to termite damage, rot, and weathering. Unmatched durability. Composite decks are designed to withstand Australia’s harsh climate.
Lifespan Proper maintenance can last many years, but it has a shorter lifespan than composite decks. Long-lasting. Composite decks are known for their longevity, often outlasting timber decks.
Environmental Impact Depends on the source of the wood. Unsustainable logging practices can lead to deforestation. More eco-friendly. Composite decking, like Futurewood’s products, combines recycled wood and plastic.
