What To Ask Before You Buy a Composite Deck
Buying decking products from any company can be a daunting experience. This is due to the fact that unlike buying, say a sandwich, once the purchase is made if you’re not happy with the results the options of taking it back, slipping it into your work colleague’s desk tray or hastily eating it simply aren’t available. As a result, ecodek have compiled a list of 5 questions that all potential buyers should ask when making any decking-related enquiries;
1. What lengths are available?
— ecodek offer boards ranging from 1.5m – 6m giving you the freedom to create your own project as well as minimising wastage.
2. Are the boards supplied hollow or solid?
— ecodek only manufacture a solid board – stronger, easier to fit and more visually appealing.
3. What are the fixing materials used?
— ecodek supply Stainless Steel Screws for our fixings that are colour coated and easy to fit as they are designed with our deck boards in mind.
4. What is the length and nature of the warranty on the product?
— ecodek is a low maintenance, all-weather decking system that comes with a 25 year warranty. This warranty protects against structural failure due to fungal decay, termites, rotting, splintering or splitting.
5. Is the product environmentally friendly?
— ecodek decking boards are made from 96% recycled material and are FSC and PEFC certified.
Anybody who is looking to buy a composite deck in the future should make sure that they ask these questions and take note on how the answers from our competitors match-up to the information above.
