Capped Composite Decking vs. Wood Decking

Although traditional timber is still used for many decking projects, its tendency to fade, splinter, warp and become slippery makes it a very high maintenance choice.

In comparison, composite decking has all the charm of traditional wood decking but without the time-consuming maintenance of its ancestor. Composite decking is more hard-wearing and a safer option than wood as it does not splinter or warp as the seasons change; it is also more slip-resistant. You can rest assured that, by choosing any of our composite products, you will end up with a high-quality deck that’s far superior to a traditional timber construction.
We offer two different types of composite decking here at TimberTech: capped composite decking and standard wood composite decking.

Capped composite decking

What is capped composite decking?

Capped decking has many of the same properties as any other good-quality composite decking material: the boards are hard-wearing, long-lasting, and extremely resistant to rotting, splintering, and warping.

Although both are excellent choices for you deck project, capped composite decking has one big advantage over non-capped materials. Capped boards are protected by a durable, moisture-resistant polymer sleeve that keeps the body of the board safe from stains and spillages; anything you spill on capped boards can be wiped clean in an instant, making capped decking a fantastic choice if you’re planning to eat and drink on your new deck!
