Why Choose Composite Decking?
Composite timber decking can be made from a combination of materials including wood chips, sawdust, recycled plastic bags and reclaimed timber.
Composite decking was built on the basis of green principles with the aim of preserving the environment for future generations.
Composite decks are hands-down the best option for customers that need a low maintenance lasting structure. Decks furnished from traditional wood only last a few years without the essential maintenance.
Homeowners might need to replace a timber deck multiple times over the years if they don’t attend to the essential maintenance. The top quality composite decking brands, like Azek, Eva-Last, TimberTech and HardieDeck are considerably more durable. They tend to last many years longer than their traditional wooden counterparts with structural and fade and stain warranties up to 50 years..
A number of factors lead to the superior durability of composite decks. They have much harder exterior surfaces, which provides superior protection against outdoor elements. They are also much more resistant to rot and insect damage, since they are formed from a combination of wooden and plastic materials, rather than pure timber.
Composite decks require far less maintenance than traditional wooden decks. This benefit is arguably an even bigger selling point than their impressive aesthetic appeal. Property owners who lack the time and energy to maintain their decks regularly will appreciate how easy it is to keep their composite deck looking new.
Composite decks require less work for multiple reasons. Their tough surfaces make them far less susceptible to damage from the elements. The materials are also less prone to internal damage (from insects and rot). Therefore, they don’t require regular paint and surface treatments.
