First of all you may be wondering what the difference between natural timber decking and composite decking is. they both have their own benefits but composite is made up of recycled materials such as plastic and timber making it more eco friendly but also slightly more costly. that being said there are many unique benefits in using a high quality composite like Future wood and Trex.

One of the main benefits in using a Composite decking is that there is no need for deck screws, the decking is secured to the sub-floor by hidden clips on either side of the decking, these are not visible as they are under the face of the deck. this allows for a much more seamless finish compared to having screw lines running across the deck when using natural timber.

Composite also comes in a much wider variety of colours meaning you can choose exactly the right product to suit your design an Budget.

On top of these benefits Composite is made to last they are so sure of this that they offer a HUGE 25 year warranty, it doesn’t rot or split and is totally insect proof, it requires no sanding, no staining and no painting. this means other than an occasional hose down and a sweep it doesn’t require any maintenance, unlike natural timber which requires oils, sanding and worst of all replacing costly split, rotten or stained boards, not to mention damage caused by insects….. BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

As composite is man made it always comes in straight and equal lengths, no bowed boards or ugly knots and burs. meaning if careful thought is taken by tradesmen there will be no decking joins in the middle of the deck and there is much less wastage.

Now i mentioned before that composite is far more eco friendly than regular timber decking, so if you want a deck but also want to do your part for the environment here’s a few reasons why composite is the material for you.

Composite is made up of %95 recycled materials such as timber and plastic meaning that no trees were harvested for the manufacturing of the product
