One of our most frequently asked questions is what are the benefits of composite decking and why should I invest in composite decking over timber? By choosing composite decking you will benefit from your choice in a variety of ways, however within this article we have narrowed it down to our top five reasons as to why you should consider composite decking for your next project.

  1. Durability

Composite decking is designed to uphold an extremely long life span, and is different to traditional timber decking boards in that it will not crack, split or warp. By combining the strength of plastic with the look and feel of wood, composite deck boards are stronger and denser than timber. Composite decking is designed to withstand the variety of elements that we experience throughout the year, whilst still maintaining both its stunning look and robust structure.

  1. Low Maintenance

As well as being extremely durable, composite decking boards require very little maintenance to keep up its original, luxurious appearance. Whereas traditional timber decking requires sanding, sealing and staining on a regular basis, composite decking only requires a thorough clean every 6 months to remove any mold or dirt.

  1. Design & Aesthetics

  1. Value for Money

Although the initial cost of composite decking can be higher than your traditional timber decking, when the savings on maintenance, such as staining and replacement expenses, are factored in, composite decking can end up paying for itself in a matter of years. Further to this, the strength and durability of composite decking leads to a longer lifespan than that that would be expected from timber.
