There is nothing better than relaxing or entertaining on a large outdoor deck and now there is a product available that is both eco-friendly and low maintenance, allowing you to enjoy your deck without a worry in the world. This product is called composite decking and here’s everything that you need to know.
About Composite Decking
Composite decking is a manufactured decking product. It is made from a combination of recycled plastic and non-virgin wood materials or wood products such as ground sawdust. Added to this is a combination of additives, bonding agents, pigments and stabilisers to create a product that looks just like real wood but that is much lower in maintenance and that is able to stand up to even the toughest of conditions.
Composite decking is incredibly versatile as it is available in a range of “grains” and colours in order to mimic a number of different species of wood. You can find composite decking that looks just like Jarrah, Merbau, pine, or any other wood you like the look of! As well, the boards themselves are available in a range of widths, so that you can choose the look that you prefer. All boards are available in standard lengths.
Benefits of Composite Decking
Composite decking gives you the look of a range of different woods but with many added benefits. By using a composite decking material, you don’t have to worry about resealing the deck like you would with timber. Composite decking will not wear or fade with time! As well, the composite decking will not rot or warp, so your deck will stay strong and true for years to come. You’ll also never have to worry about splinters! Composite decking is also fire resistant. Environmentally speaking, composite decking is very eco friendly. This is because of how it is made.
Something that you may not realise about composite decking is how cost effective it is! It is on par with or slightly more expensive than natural timber but you will save money over the years as you will not have to go to the expense of sanding back and staining or re-oiling the timber every year, or even every six months. Don’t forget about the time you’ll save as well – there’s no maintenance apart from a quick clean every now and then!
