What is Composite Decking?
Composite Decking is the modern and better alternative to traditional decking. It is a combination of composite materials such as Wood, Bamboo Fibre, Recycled Plastic (HDPE) and a Chemical component which includes UV protection. It boasts environment friendly components with a focus on sustainability.
Composite Decking is known for its long life span. Since the plastic protects the wood fibres from the elements, composite decking is not prone to rotting, decay, or termite damage. Composite Decking often comes with long term warranties that guarantee it will not rot or suffer structural damage under normal residential conditions.
In a modern day world where sustainability forms such a large part of development partnered with the need for quality, durability and aesthetically pleasing products, Composite Decking is an industry favourite.
We specialise in a 2nd Generation WPC composite decking called Suprotect (Super Protect). It is produced by a co-extrusion technique developed two years ago. Simply speaking, the process is to extrude two materials at the same time and give the boards a natural layered appearance and more protection. The boards are broken down into three different structural make ups for different client preferences.
Added benefits of Composite Decking
Benefits of Composite Decking
1. Superior Durability
In order for a deck to be worth the cost, it needs to be durable. Plus, if it’s going to be the location of many gatherings, it needs to be ultra-strong to bear the weight of people, furniture, and family pets. You can expect this with a composite deck, as they are constructed out of multiple materials for exceptional strength and resistance to wear and tear over the years.
2. Minimal Maintenance
Since composite decking won’t break down and rot over time like wood, it requires little upkeep. It doesn’t even need to be re-stained or repainted. You’ll most likely just need to hose it down or power wash it occasionally to keep it looking its best.
3. Environmentally Friendly
No trees are harmed in the making of composite decks! Since a majority of them are made from recycled or scrap materials, there is virtually no environmental impact—especially compared to wood decks which require a decent amount of lumber.
4. More Colour Choices
While wood decks can be stained in a decent amount of finishes or painted, it will likely require some touch ups or fresh coats over time. Meanwhile, composite decking can be crafted in a wide assortment of colours and finishes, all of which will retain their hue.
5. No Splinters
You can confidently walk across composite decking while barefoot without worrying about any splinters. This is a massive bonus for you, the kids, and even your pets.
