Our heritage decking with a cosy atmosphere

How much does composite decking really cost?

‘How much is composite decking?’ is a question we get asked often and the answer can vary.

The adage ‘you get what you pay for’ is a commonly used phrase which intimates that the more you pay for a product, the better quality it will be. However, there will always be a need to provide products at various price points, but does this mean that those more affordable products should be of a lesser quality?

Here at Ecodek we understand the need to be able to offer an array of decking solutions to suit all budgets. However, we do not want to stray from our commitment to providing our customers with the highest quality, most sustainable decking solutions possible – we believe we have achieved that balance.

Choice without compromise

Wood composite decking is an investment and as such we know that customers want to make sure they are getting the best product for their money. We also understand that there are many customers whose budget does not stretch to the high end, luxurious decking ranges – but this should not mean they should have to compromise on quality.

There are many cheaper options on the market, where their price does reflect their quality. However, here at Ecodek we believe we have been able to marry cost and quality to create a variety of ranges to suit all budgets.

Sound foundations

Regardless of price, each range features slip resistant, low maintenance, splinter free, rot and splinter resistant wood composite decking boards. These common features provide a safe, comfortable, and durable decking solution regardless of which range you choose. The key difference – and the reason we can offer a variety of prices – is the way in which the boards are constructed. All are manufactured using 95% sustainably sourced and recycled materials, but there are subtle differences.

An essential addition

Essentials is the most affordable range we offer. It’s based on our highly popular Signature AT range, but slight variations have enabled us to offer it at a lower cost.

Firstly, whilst Signature AT is reversible with a ribbed finish on one side and a grooved surface on the other, Essentials only has the grooved finish. Secondly, the internal structure of an Essentials decking board is scalloped – rather than solid – which is a unique construction that features two channels running through the centre of the board. In turn, this creates two ‘pillars’ which provide support and strength where it’s needed most.

Overall, the distinctive construction, which requires less material, and finish of the Essentials board has helped us bring an affordable, yet high quality decking solution to market. Also, despite its affordability, the Essentials range is supported by a 10-year guarantee, which demonstrates our confidence in its quality and durability.

The signature of quality

Our Heritage and Signature AT wood composite decking boards are both of solid construction. Their wider choice of finishes puts these collections in a slightly higher price bracket than Essentials.

Whilst Essentials has a scalloped internal construction, both Heritage and Signature AT are solid wood composite boards. This makes them extremely strong, hard wearing, and durable. Their realistic finish enables homeowners to create a decked area to rival any timber alternative.

The price is also reflected in the guarantee, with both Heritage and Signature AT being supported by a 25-year warranty.

The evolution of decking

Evolution is our most prestigious collection. It features solid, capped, contemporary wood composite boards available in eight colour ways, enabling customers to create a luxurious looking decked area.

Evolution has a stain and fade resistant finish, making these composite decking boards built to last.

So, how much is composite decking?

We’ve worked hard to create a comprehensive range of wood composite decking collections to suit every style and every budget, whilst remaining true to our ethos of quality and sustainability – and we believe we have achieved this.

From Essentials to Evolution, we have a range that allows you to create the decked area of your dreams, regardless of your budget and without having to compromise on quality.
