expensive composite decking

If you're on the look-out for a new deck for your outdoor space, you've probably come across the term 'composite decking' more than a few times. When you think about decking materials, it's normal for your mind to go straight to wooden, vinyl or aluminium decks. Composite decking is different as it is made from a blend of wood fibre, plastic, and binding agent. 

So, why is composite decking so expensive in comparison to other decking materials? In this blog, we'll outline why composite decking costs more, and why it's worth every penny!


1. It Has a Unique Appearance

Composite decking has a unique appearance because it is made up of wood fibres and plastic mixed with a binding agent. This unique anatomy creates an extremely durable - and beautiful - decking product.

You may worry about composite decking looking a bit too artificial, but the blend of wood fibres throughout the decking boards ensures that this will never be the case. You essentially get the best of both worlds - a natural, traditional wood-like appearance with all the strength of plastic.


2. It's Durable

Due to its composite structure, composite decking is resistant to the moisture, rotting and splintering that you may in with wooden decks. In the winter, composite decking is especially good at withstanding the cold and damp British weather. This is due to the special layer of plastic polymer that prevents any water or moisture getting into the crevices of the composite decking boards.

Additionally, composite decking is extremely rigid and stable, and there's no denying that it can stand the test of time. To prove this, all of our composite deck boards come with a warranty between 10 and 30 years!


3. It's Low-Maintenance

Our composite decking boards require virtually ZERO maintenance. Yep, you heard that right! Even the deck installation process is easy. 

As they're already so durable, they are able to hold their own in a vast range of outdoor environments - rain or shine. They are specifically designed to resist fading and stains, so if you want to clean your composite decking, you'll only ever need to give them a wipe down using a stiff brush and warm, soapy water. 


4. It's Versatile

There's no denying that composite decking can look beautiful in any and every garden or outdoor space. It's very easy to manufacture composite decking into a range of colours, textures and finishes. It truly is one of the most versatile pieces of decking material out there.
