Life in the 21st century can be a mile a minute and fitting everything into a 24-hour day is, at times, nigh on impossible.

For those lucky enough to have composite decking on their property, one hindrance you can remove from the list of time-sapping chores is deck maintenance.

No longer will you have to spend your summer Saturdays treating your deck boards with sealing products and coats of varnish, nor will you have to spend hours scrubbing them clean after a heavy build-up of groove-infiltrating dirt.

Read on for the complete low-down on the time and labour-saving properties of our low-maintenance decking and see for yourself.

Decking Maintenance

When it comes to low-maintenance decking, composite decking has no peers.

Softwood decking is prone to water absorption and can be a real slip hazard, as well as a magnet for mildew and mould. They are also likely to split and splinter in short turnaround and have a life-span that’s hardly worth the investment.

Meanwhile, while hardwood decking is a better option than its softer counterpart, this too can crack, split and splinter over time and requires a lot of TLC to keep in tip-top condition. They are also often sourced from tropical areas and are extremely detrimental to the environment.

With such drawbacks to the natural route, it’s no surprise that many opt for a synthetic alternative; however, even that route isn’t without its flaws. In fact, traditional man-made options can have their own set of issues altogether.

Plastic decking lacks the organic appearance of wood, while the structural integrity of PVC boards can become seriously compromised with the expansion/contraction of the boards. These structural changes in varying temperatures can lead to very noticeable bows and cracks in no time.
