While people might immediately think of wood when they picture their dream deck, there are plenty of reasons to pick a composite alternative over traditional wooden options. They’re made up of around 95% recycled plastic and wood flour but are designed to resemble the natural look of timber decking, with a wide range of styles and colours available.

Durable and hard wearing
  • They’re made to be resistant to fading and bleaching from exposure to the sun’s UV rays, as well as other weathering including staining, scratching, cracking and warping.
  • They’re also protected against mould and algae, as well as being water-resistant.
  • Many composite decking boards come with long-term guarantees as an indicator of their durability.
Low maintenance
  • There’s no sanding, staining or sealing required.
  • Occasional soap and water cleaning will keep it looking its best for years to come.
Varied designs achievable
  • Available in a wide variety of styles and colours to suit any home, so you can transform your garden to matter the aesthetic you’re going for.
  • Choose from sleek, modern options or more traditional designs that have the look of timber decking.
Easy to install
  • Composite boards can be cut to size with standard tools, just like you would cut timber boards.
  • Specific composite decking screws are available in a range of colours, making it easier to hide them.
  • Boards join together easily with fastening clips so that you can lay them consistently and not have to worry about lining up surface screws.
