Advantages of composite decking

  1. Low Maintenance:

    • Composite decking requires minimal maintenance compared to traditional wood. It doesn't need staining, sealing, or painting to maintain its appearance.

  2. Durability:

    • Composites are made from a combination of wood fibers and recycled plastic, creating a durable and long-lasting material.

    • Resistant to rot, decay, and insects, composite decking is less prone to common issues associated with traditional wood, such as splintering and warping.

  3. Consistent Appearance:

    • Composite decking offers a uniform appearance with consistent colour and grain patterns. This helps create a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing outdoor space.

  4. Colour Options:

    • Manufacturers offer a wide variety of colour options, 

    • Composite decking often has UV inhibitors to resist fading over time.

  5. Environmentally Friendly:

    • Many composite decking materials incorporate recycled content, making them an environmentally friendly choice.

  6. Resistance to Weather and UV Rays:

    • Composite decking is designed to withstand the elements, including rain, snow, and harsh sunlight.

    • UV-resistant additives help prevent color fading, ensuring the deck maintains its appearance over the years.

  7. Splinter-Free and Barefoot-Friendly:

    • Unlike wood, composite decking does not splinter, providing a safer surface for walking barefoot.

    • The smooth texture of composite boards adds to the comfort and safety of the deck.

  8. Long Lifespan:

    • Composite decking is known for its longevity and resistance to wear and tear.

    • While the initial cost may be higher than wood, the long lifespan and reduced maintenance costs can make it a cost-effective choice over time.

  9. Resistant to Moisture and Mould:

    • Composite decking does not absorb moisture like wood, reducing the risk of mould, mildew, and water damage.

    • This makes it particularly suitable for areas with high humidity or frequent rain.

  10. Warranty Coverage:

    • Many composite decking manufacturers offer warranties, providing homeowners with peace of mind regarding the product's performance and longevity.
