Composite Decking

Ideas and updates from the TimberTech blog

If you’re looking at decking for your garden, there are so many choices these days. Should you go for hardwood or softwood, or choose PVC or plastic, and what about composite decking?

They all have their positives and negatives. Real wood looks lovely, but you can spend an awful lot of time and money making it stay looking good, plus there’s the environmental impact of chopping down all those trees and using chemicals to treat it.

With PVC or plastic, you get little or no maintenance. However, it’s not that great to look at and can warp and fade after a few years in the great outdoors.

Enter composite decking, which is what TImberTech is. Composite has the beautiful, natural look of real wood but with the low maintenance properties of PVC or plastic.

Here are four very good reason why composite is a great option for garden decking:
 

1.     Environmentally friendly
Our decking boards and handrails are made from reclaimed wood that would otherwise end up in landfills. Each year, we keep over 45 million  
kilograms of wood waste out of landfills.

2.     Virtually maintenance-free
Unlike traditional wood decking, TimberTech will never need sanding, painting or sealing. All it needs to keep looking great is an occasional jet   
wash.

3.     Slip-resistant
When it rains TimberTech doesn’t retain water like traditional wood does. Even after a British downpour, within half an hour your decking will be 
completely dry again. And a dry surface means less chance for mould and algae to build up, thus leading to slip-resistant boards.

4.     25-year guarantee
We’re so confident that our products will stand the test of time that they come with a 25-year guarantee – that’s a lot of summers to relax on your    
decking and enjoy your outdoor space.

And if you’d like to find out more about why you should choose composite decking, have a look at some of our articles, which cover TimberTech’s eco credential, low maintenance properties and all-round fantastic benefits!
