Composite decking continues to grow in popularity. People love it for its long-lasting nature and eco-friendly design. It’s also an extremely low maintenance decking option, meaning you spend less time working and more time relaxing.
Composite decking is commonly made up of 95% recycled wood fibres and recycled plastic. That means no trees are cut down to create your composite deck. In fact, much of the plastic that is used in composite decking would have ended up as landfill. That’s a double bonus for the environment.
Another great benefit of composite is the colour choice. Composite decking comes in a wide range of colours that will complement your existing décor. Depending on the product you choose, the surface of composite decking can be:
- Fade resistant
- Stain resistant
- Mould resistant
- Scratch resistant
Installation is also quite a simple task, though it’s always advised that you use a qualified installer to do the job. Composite decks use a hidden fastener system which makes use of the built-in grooves and results in a smooth surface.
As mentioned, composite decking is low maintenance and requires only semi-annual cleaning with a hose and general household cleaner.
Composite decking is perfect for residential properties and is also commonly used for schools, council projects, public spaces and many other high traffic areas.
When you are getting your deck quotes, you’ll notice that the cost of composite decking is slightly higher than timber decking. However, consider the lifetime decking cost – not just the cost per square metre.
