What is composite timber decking?

Composite refers to anything that is made of more than one material. These materials are combined to form a new product with superior characteristics. In terms of composite decking these materials are generally wood, glue, sawdust, pvc and binding agents. The new product usually aims to replicate natural timber decking with added benefits such as being low maintenance, non splintering, quicker to install and have the ability to use secret fixing systems.

    Why composite (low maintenance) decking?

    If you are building a new deck or replacing an existing deck, then you need to consider the advantages of composite decking.

    Low Maintenance
    The ongoing maintenance of natural timber can be expensive, tedious and ongoing. Costing you money and time to keep your deck looking good and performing well. Natural timber decks in full sun environments can require oiling as often as every 9 months. Composite decking can offer a huge 25 year warranty with many products only needing a general hose over once yearly.

    Secret Fixing Systems
    Most composite decking brands have a secret fixing system allowing the decking to be installed without top fixings. This improves the visual outcome of the deck and eliminates for unsightly popped nails or broken screw heads.

    Visually Appealing
    Composite decking looks amazing once it is installed offering deep rich colours and seamless long lines.
