Composite decking

A customer of ours recently placed an order for some EasyClean Edge+ Oak composite decking. These weather-resistant boards are part of our deluxe TimberTech decking range: made in the USA, ultra low maintenance, and just as beautiful as hardwood decking!

We recently received an unsolicited email from a customer in Oxfordshire who, just over a decade ago, used our TimberTech decking boards to add a deck to his property.


Tough decking still looks good after 12 years

When you add a deck to your garden, you want to be sure that you'll be able to keep enjoying that deck for years if not decades to come. After all, why buy the materials and do all the work if the deck is just going to fall apart within a couple of years?


When it comes to sourcing top-quality composite decking, TimberTech often comes out on top of the list.

A veteran brand that has revolutionised the decking industry, TT has earned its spot at the top of the mountain.

However, a quick Google search will also highlight a number of other composite competitors, with numerous other companies throwing their hat in the ring – albeit to varying results and quality.

One of those competitors is Trex. Industry veterans in their own right, Trex have become a common alternative for composite decking outside of TimberTech.

But how does it stand up next to TimberTech? Let’s find out as we put them both under the microscope in a head-to-head battle of TimberTech vs Trex.


timbertech vs trex



Capped composite decking is the latest and greatest innovation in decking durability. Providing enhanced stain and slip resistance, capped decking includes a protective polymer shield around each board to keep out moisture.

While both products favour the capped approach, a key difference between Trex boards and TimberTech boards is the way they are capped.

TimberTech boards are fully capped on all sides, sealing out moisture from all sides for maximum protection against moisture.

Conversely, Trex boards are only capped on the top, leaving the sides and underneath exposed to moisture. Think of it as having a high-security lock on your front door and leaving your back door open.



Both TimberTech and Trex offer composite decking that is inherently eco-friendly, combining reclaimed wood with synthetic materials to reduce the environmental impact.

From a sustainability point of view, both offer a guilt-free way of decking out your garden without contributing to felling trees and deforestation.

However, one key difference you’ll immediately notice between the two is their composition. Trex boards comprise of a solid plank with the typical straight, four-sided framework.

Meanwhile, TimberTech boards include a notably different underside, with two stylishly grooved channels running down the length of the board.

As a result, TimberTech uses less material than Trex per board simply by its anatomy. Over the course of an entire deck, this can amount to a considerable difference.



When it comes to warranty, the difference is evident to see and indisputable. Trex products offer a guarantee of 25 years, while most TimberTech products come with a hefty 30-year safety net, thereby offering 5 years additional cover than Trex.

The guarantee offered by Trex vs TimberTech’s leaves there no doubt who comes up on the winning end in terms of customer reassurance. TimberTech’s 30-year warranty (with stain and fade cover included) is the ultimate peace of mind.
