Benefits Of Composite Decking

There is no question if customers like it, they love it. The colour and texture of the new natural line rival some of the best exotic woods that will retain its beauty and appearance for many years.

The key reasons that customers are switching to a composite deck are little or no maintenance, anti-slip resistance and a long product life that is green, sustainable and friendlier to our environment.

Its long-life span is a testament to the quality and the leaps in technology that composite decking has undertaken since its first introduction in the mid to late 1990s. High quality composite decking offers a lifespan beyond 25 years when compared to wood’s lifespan of 8 to 12 years. It’s easy to see why composite has become so popular.

The choices for Composite decking have been further transformed with the introduction of shielded or capped (co-extrusion) composite decking. Capped composite decking acts as a shield or barrier around the decking boards centre or honeycomb core. The term “shield” means exactly that, each decking board has a capped or shield surrounding the entire board which offers protection from mother nature’s harshest elements increasing the life span of your new deck. The shield also offers protection from mould, mildew, spills, stains and UV fading.
