  • The Benefits of Composite Decking

    If you have found yourself in your garden more recently, and would like to update and upgrade your space - perhaps you’ve been thinking about a landscaping project? There are lots of great ways to add value to your outside space with soft furniture items, sheltered areas or adding pops of colour with hanging baskets and flower beds.

    One great way to maximise the usage of an outside space is by adding a decking area for you and your family to spend time on and relax. There are many benefits to Composite Decking compared to traditional patio, it is also usually easier to lay and quicker to install than a patio, particularly if it is raised above ground level, which can be a benefit for many.

    If you would like to update your current decking area, or transform your outside space by adding a decking area, below is a list of benefits of Composite Decking and choices at The Floor Store.

     

    Why choose Composite Decking over Wood Decking?

    Composite decking is designed for maximum durability. It is much more durable than a traditional wood decking, as it is much more resistant to fading, staining, scratching and mould, compared to wood decking. This durability also protects the deck from rot, cracks or warps.

    Other great benefits for families are that composite material is generally insect-proof and splinter-free, making it a safer option for families with younger children and pets.

    Overall, composite decking is lower maintenance, much more durable and lasts longer in terms of colour pay off and structure than other types of decking or patio – helping to keep your outdoor space beautiful for longer.

     

    What is Composite Decking?

    Composite Decking is created using a combination of both natural hardwood and synthetic materials. The results of this process are then turned into high-quality deck boards that look more authentic than plastic decking and require less maintenance than wood.

    This product is considered to be the best blend of both wood and plastic, as it is similar to plastic decking being easily maintained and little hassle, yet it mirrors the natural charming look of traditional wood decking.

     

    The benefits of Composite Decking

    Here are some of the main benefits of using composite decking boards in your outdoor space:

    At The Floor Store our decking boards are reversible, meaning they are produced with a traditional ribbed finish on one a face and a realistic wood grain effect on the other.

    The boards do not need to be sealed, stained or painted due to the material, the composite material is much more resistant to warp or fade in the sun unlike real wood, eliminating the possibility of bowing or cracking (unlike plastic decking).

    This type of decking is also much more slip-resistant than other materials. On top of all the stated benefits, Composite Decking is also a much better investment financially and can be much more cost effective on maintenance and repairs over the lifespan of the deck.
