Choosing the best composite decking brand for your project:

When it comes to choosing the best composite decking brand, we recommend shopping around! There will be pros and cons of every business including, location, price point, quality, product range and more. Here are a few other things you could check that will help you decide which composite decking brand is the best for you.

  • Product reviews - Are previous customers talking highly about your chosen composite decking brand? Do they deliver on time? What's the customer service like? (You can take a look at our reviews here).

  • Warranties - If you're planning to keep your new deck for a long time, it's important you choose a composite decking brand that offers good warranties on their deck boards. After all, you don't want to be ripping up and replacing decking after only a few years, especially if it's going to come out of your pocket! (Learn about our warranties here).

  • Installation guides - Choosing the right composite decking brand is just the first step in your garden transformation journey. Installing composite decking correctly is paramount if you want it to look and last as long as it should. Look for a composite decking brand with easy-to-follow composite decking installation guides. (You can see our decking installation guides here).

  • Order samples - One of the easiest ways to decide whether a composite decking brand is right for you is by ordering a few samples. When you physically have the decking in your hands, it will be much easier to assess the quality, colour and texture. (Order DeckPlus samples here).
