Composite decking is made from more than one material to increase its strength and density. Composite timber decking has increased in popularity dramatically over the last 25 years due to its properties, which include a lower likelihood to split, or crack, engineered capability to be fade and stain resistant, and relatively low maintenance when compared to other timber decking materials. Not only is composite decking easy to install but it is safe and eco-friendly, making it a preferred choice of material for homeowners investing in a new, cost-effective deck. However, it typically has higher up front costs than other decking materials.
Low-maintenance composite decking which are made up of wood fibres and recycled plastics are rising in popularity in part thanks to long warranties and long-term cost effectiveness, despite a heavy price tag at the onset of purchase. Critics of composite decking suggest that it lacks the charm of real wood decks but thanks to innovations in design and manufacturing there is a range of colours of composite decking materials available to help you achieve a natural look. Composite decking doesn't require sanding, refinishing, or staining making it an ideal choice among homeowners who are not looking to spend a lot of time and money in upkeep.
Wood is the most common choice of decking material among homeowners. However, it doesn't last forever. For that reason, composite materials have been rising in popularity. They offer unrivalled durability and are far longer lasting than their wood counterparts. Moreover, composite decking is lower maintenance and stronger, meaning that your composite deck is likely to last you much longer over time. Critics of composite decking often point to a high initial cost to install a composite deck but may realise cost savings in the long run as they do not invest time and money into sanding, standing and other types of maintenance such as repairing splits in traditional wood decks.
Composite decking is weather, rot and insect repellant and among the most durable and sustainable decking materials available to homeowners. Because of its low maintenance properties and relative strength, it often has a longer lifespan than traditional decking materials which often need to be maintained, repaired and replaced periodically. Typically composite decking can last between 25 and 30 years depending on the type of material used, the activity undertaken on the deck and the environment in which it exists. Homeowners typically are attracted to composite decking in part due to its long term warranty.
Yes! Composite decking is appropriate around the pool area and is often the preferred material of choice both among homeowners who are looking to add a pool to their outdoor space and construction organisations that advise on how to manage value and performance. Many of the properties inherent in composite decking make it ideal for pool areas including built-in moisture resistance, a P% slip-resistance rating and U/V resistance. Composite decking in pool areas can mimic the look and feel of traditional woods without additional framing requirements so that your pool area is as safe and secure as possible.
One of the largest benefits for homeowners who have composite decking in their properties is that it is relatively low maintenance. After all, pressure washing is not usually recommended for composite decking for a number of reasons. First, it's not necessary, you can simply wash your composite decking with soapy water as long as you make sure to rinse it really well afterwards. And if done incorrectly (washing too closely or using too much pressure), power washing can be a costly mistake leading to etching that will need to be repaired. For those reasons, we advise against pressure washing your composite decking.
