Without the need for oiling, sanding, staining, and other treatments, your composite decking will be naturally resistant to stains, fading, UV damage, mold, termites, mildew, moisture, splitting, and splintering.
Unlike traditional hardwood decking which is likely to contribute to deforestation and habitat destruction, choosing KEKSIA’s composite decking over timber decking means you don’t have to cut down trees for a durable deck that lasts longer before it needs to be replaced. KEKSIA’s composite decking is 95% sourced from recycled materials, saving these reclaimed inputs from landfill. Sustainable and low on carbon emissions, our composite decking range doesn’t compromise on quality or reliability.
Our unique blend of composite materials used to create and bind the composite decking hinders the usual slip hazards on timber decking, such as mold. The texture and depth of the finish on our composite decking provide you with a safe flooring solution for any situation.
There are different types of composites that make up the actual material itself. The composite core is made of 60% recycled wood fibre and 40% Recycled HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene). The Co-Extruded Cap Layer is made out of Virgin Polyethylene – Dupont with UV pack.
We recommend installing composite decking instead of normal wood decking. Composite decking requires next to no maintenance and is more cost-effective. It is resistant to splintering, mould, UV, pests, and moisture. For design purposes, composite decking also provides more flexibility as it’s molded, not cut or shaped.
Composite decking has an inherently hardwearing and durable nature. As such, composite decking does not suffer from mould damage or rot. This is largely why one of the main benefits of composite decking centres around its superior performance.
Designed to protect against moisture damage, composite decking also features materials that actively guard against creating a suitable surface for mould to grow. Eco-friendly and sourced from 95% recycled materials, composite decking has the added benefit of requiring minimal upkeep.
It’s also important to note that while composite decking can resist conditions associated with harsh weather such as fading, stains, mould and mildew, elements of style are not compromised. In fact, composite decking comes in a great range of colours and textures.
This means that composite decking can be installed in a variety of outdoor spaces, be it commercial or residential. Giving you the added luxury of having a complete outdoor dining, living or entertaining area. Further, composite decking is also slip resistant which affords you peace of mind.
When looking to create an outdoor space, it’s important to understand how materials will interact with the surrounding environment. With this in mind, composite decking does not get hotter than wood.
Thanks to advancements in materials and manufacturing processes, composite decking is resistant to heat. Such advancements have a variety of associated benefits. Namely, the fact that owners of a composite decking will not have to worry about replacing certain boards due to splintering or breakage.
Another advantage is the fact that this heat resistance plays an active role in ensuring that composite deckings do not fade. This is quite a feat when you consider that deckings are always exposed to outdoor conditions such as harsh sunlight.
With the right maintenance techniques, composite deckings can continue to perform for years to come. Offering your home the perfect foundation for friends and family to gather comfortably, whether conditions are hot or cool.
It’s also worth noting that composite decking colour choices will play a role in the temperature of your deck. For example, lighter-coloured composite deckings will traditionally stay cooler than deckings complete with a darker colour.
Composite decking is known for its hardwearing and durable nature. This means that it can withstand everything from mould and pests to harsh sunlight and cold conditions. As such, composite decking does not fade.
Those installing a wooden deck in the back or front yard of their home may expect to see signs of colour fade around the four to five year mark. However, composite decking guarantees performance for decades to come.
Part of this guaranteed performance is the fact that your composite decking will not show signs of age or discolouration. However, this is provided that you undertake the right maintenance steps.
While caring for a composite deck is typically less involved than maintaining a wooden decking, basic cleaning is required. Something as simple as sweeping the deck every week and washing the surface with a soapy water solution twice a year can make your deck appear as new.
Composite decking can be cleaned in a variety of ways. Cleaning may simply involve sweeping the surface to rid of any debris such as leaves, branches and dirt. Cleaning may also be more involved and require a pressure cleaner or mop.
Before placing a coarse broom or soap solution on your composite decking, it’s always a good idea to check the cleaning instructions associated with your specific variety of composite decking. This way you can ensure that you won’t scratch or strip your decking’s surface.
A good cleaning routine is to sweep your deck either weekly or monthly. As decks are typically fully or partially exposed to the outdoors, all sorts of things may appear on the surface. Sweeping will ensure you can get rid of surface dirt, dust and tree debris.
For a more thorough clean, it’s advised that once or twice a year composite deckings receive a full wash. For small to medium sized deckings, this clean could be completed with a mop or a sponge. For larger sized decks, a pressure cleaner might be more appropriate.
When creating the soap solution to clean your deck, opt for mild soaps that have been diluted with water. From there, firstly hose off the deck and then scrub with the soap solution. The final step for a thorough clean is to rinse the deck with warm water to remove all the soap. Otherwise, soap has been known to create a film that can damage composite decking.
As composite decking is built to last, some owners may look to oiling or painting the decking in order to achieve a new look. When using the right variety of stain or paint, composite decking can be successfully modified.
For example, those choosing to paint should opt for acrylic latex exterior primer and a latex paint with either a satin or semi-gloss finish. Meanwhile, those looking to stain need to choose an acrylic latex stain with both UV and mildew resistance.
Both staining and painting require different application techniques. As such, those looking to paint will need to clean the decking’s surface before applying the primer and then at least two coats of paint. For those wishing to stain their composite decking, the stain’s inherently thin consistency means that you only need to apply one coat.
In terms of maintenance, a painted deck is less involved. This is because a properly sealed and painted deck can be pressured washed. On the other hand, pressure washing a stained deck is not advised. Additionally, the stain will need to be reapplied every two to eight years while a painted composite decking will last well over a decade.
Over the years, there have been many different design trends for outdoor areas. This means that, for some, their backyard is currently all concrete. While this may not seem like an ideal surface, you do have options.
Namely, the fact that composite decking can be installed over concrete. In fact, installation over hard surfaces is often preferred to surfaces such as gravel, grass or even sand. This is because harder surface areas like concrete are inherently more stable and durable.
However, it’s worth noting that installation will require some work. This is because composite decking over concrete will need to be installed over a framework. Otherwise, your new decking will lack adequate drainage which may result in problems in the future.
By taking into account elements of the framework, you can create a seamless composite decking over concrete. As a durable, easy-to-maintain, stylish and customisable outdoor flooring solution, composite decking is a beneficial choice for those looking to transform concrete spaces.
