Composite Decking

In Merredin, people love using composite timber decking from Futurewood. It is made from recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber. So it looks like natural timber but is more durable. It can fight off rot and warp better than wooden decks can. Stand up to the harsh climates in Australia, and is safe for kids or pets to walk barefoot because they’re not splintery or slippery.

Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking offers numerous benefits for homeowners in Merredin. It requires low maintenance, is incredibly durable and long-lasting, environmentally friendly, and resistant to fading and stains. Unlike traditional timber decking, a composite deck provides a cost-effective, longer-term solution.

Low Maintenance

Composite timber decking Perth saves you time. You don’t need to spend hours painting or staining it. There is no rotting or warping to fix. Just a quick clean with soap and water keeps it looking great.

Durability and Longevity

Composite decking is durable and lasts a long time. It does not rot or warp as wood does. This is because it is made from recycled wood fibres and plastic materials. These two things give composite decking its strength. It can withstand harsh weather and is a safe place for your kids to play all year round!

Environmentally Friendly

Composite decking from Futurewood is kind to our planet. Their product is a testament to environmental consciousness, created using recycled polyolefin, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber.

Fade and Stain Resistance

A composite deck shines in the face of spills and sun. It keeps its colour for many years. Even if you spill wine or drop barbecue sauce, it won’t stain.

Actual Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking

When considering decking options, it’s not just the initial decking cost that must be regarded as but the long-term costs.

Factors Timber Decking Composite Decking
Initial Cost It lowers initial cost but requires more money for sealants and stains up front. A higher initial cost.
Maintenance Costs Requires frequent staining, sealing, and sanding to maintain its look and prevent damage. This adds significant ongoing costs. It is built to be low maintenance.
Lifespan It is expected to last around 10-15 years, with proper maintenance. After this, it may need to be replaced, adding to the overall expense. Engineered for durability and longevity
Environmental Impact Timber decking uses trees, which can contribute to deforestation. While sustainably sourced timber is available, it usually comes at a higher price. It is made from recycled materials and is a more environmentally friendly choice.
