Composite decking is the perfect choice for those looking to improve their outdoor area. When you want to design an inviting space that can be enjoyed all year round, you need composite decking flexibility.
Benefits of Composite Decks
Composite decks are composed of a mixture of recycled timber or other materials, with resin to bind them together. Depending on your requirements, they are generally available in planks, tiles or bricks. This type of decking is considered very low-maintenance as they do not need oiling or staining in most cases, which reduces ongoing costs compared to wooden decks.
These types of decks are also known to be much more resistant to any type of water damage. When the surface becomes worn, stains or scratches appear over time, you will not have to worry about rot as this is extremely rare with composite decking.
Composite decks are also very easy to install and lightweight, so they can be handled by one person. They are cheaper to purchase than real timber boards but are stronger and have a longer life span too. You also can customise the colour yourself, which cannot be done with other types of decking materials.
What are the uses of composite decks?
Composite decks are suitable for any area where you would normally use a wooden deck. They offer the perfect solution to areas where they are exposed to harsh weather conditions. Composite decks are ideal poolside, outdoor entertainment areas, or high moisture zones like bathrooms and laundry rooms.
Even though there is no limit to where they can be used, there are some things that you should be aware of when using them: Composite products will always have some form of colour fade over time due to UV exposure. So do not place them in an area that will see plenty of direct sunlight all day, every day. If the product is placed near a swimming pool, then there’s also the risk of staining.
Composite Decking vs Wood Decking - Which is better for you?
Comparing these two is like comparing apples and oranges. Depending on personal preference, each material has its own benefits that make it the right choice for some people.
Timber is considered to be the traditional material for decking. However, over the last few years, there has been an emerging trend in wood alternatives that are very similar to wood. A composite product range like TimberTech’s ProLam combines the look and feel of natural timber with increased strength and durability. Composite decks do require a little bit more upkeep than real wood boards, but they don’t have to be stained or sealed as frequently as wooden ones do, so there’s less risk of you slipping on wet stairs.
Drawbacks of composite decks
Some disadvantages, though, are that they do not look as natural as wood because there’s no grain visible in your decking planks. It appears much flatter than real wood would – although colours can be mixed together to mimic the look of wood.
Composite decking boards are high maintenance and need to be cared for with special sealants that will protect them from elements like dirt, mildew and moisture. You would also need to check your decking on a regular basis, so small cracks don’t become bigger problems over time.
