Building Your Dream Decking: Composite Vs. Wood

From firing up the barbeque on a sweet summer’s day to taking in the fresh air and appreciating the nature around you, our qualified decking specialists and fitters can help bring your vision to life.   

But first, it is important to decide on a specific design and the right materials that suit your needs,  requirements and budget. Both composite decking and natural wood decking offer different benefits and features. Explore both options below and discover which materials are best suited for your garden decking project.

Composite Decking 

Looking for a deck that can withstand the test of time? Then composite is the way to go! Made of durable, long-lasting, stain-resistant materials, composite decking is perfect for withstanding harsh weather conditions and natural wear and tear. With composite decking, you can have full peace of mind as you are protected from rotting and insect damage. This is due to the fact that the treated wood is not susceptible to these issues. 

Although it might be the pricier option in comparison to natural wood decks, composite decks can still last for up to 50 years, which makes it a worthy investment. Plus, a lot less regular maintenance is required as it is extremely durable and highly resistant to stains, UV rays, splinters and more. 

Wood Decking 

Sometimes you just can’t beat the authenticity of natural wood. Opting for true wood decking is a fabulous choice for those who appreciate the look of natural wood materials. However, choosing the right wood will determine the lifespan of your deck. For example, woods such as cedar or redwood are great choices if you require weather-resistant, cracking and warping resistant materials. Although natural wood decking may require more regular maintenance than composite, it is the budget-friendly option that offers a superb natural aesthetic to your garden.
