Dogs can make a wonderful addition to the family home and can, more often than not, become a much-loved part of the family themselves.
However, like any family member, living with them does require a degree of sacrifice at times. From holiday headaches to vet bills, owning a dog isn’t always a walk in the park.
That being said, one sacrifice no dog owner should have to make is their dreams of garden decking. Luckily, you can have your cake and eat it with a diet of composite decking from TimberTech.
Dogs and Composite Decking
One of the primary concerns many dog owners have over incorporating decking into their home design is its potential for dog-ravaged destruction. After all, why pay top dollar for designer decking if it’s going to fall foul to canine claws in no time?
Despite those logical reservations, composite decking and dogs can actually make a natural fit. This is especially true when it comes to dogs and the top-quality decking from TimberTech.
Our composite decking is inherently cool and doesn’t absorb the heat, making it the perfect lounge area for a doggy daydream on a lazy summer’s day. Meanwhile, it’s low porosity also makes it extremely slip-resistant, providing a firm surface for overzealous paws, even after bouts of rain.
What’s more, composite decking will never splinter, providing your furry friend with a safe surface that won’t hide any hidden dangers. Most of our composite decking boards also come with a 30-year warranty too, providing your canine companion with a dog-friendly deck that will last a lifetime.
Best Decking Material for Dogs
When it comes to knowing what is the best decking material for dogs, there’s no question about it, capped composite decking wins every time, paws down.
In addition to boasting all the benefits of traditional composite decking, each capped composite decking board is resistant to scratches and abrasions, giving you the ultimate dog-proof decking solution on the market.
That being said, when it comes to keeping your deck clean and tidy, dogs can really mess things up – and we mean that quite literally…
Say “No-No” to Doo-Doo
A prime concern of dog owners that are considering decking is their pooch’s penchant for toilet breaks. A quick search online will see a whole host of horror stories emerge about dogs giving their owner’s new decking a urinary paint job (or even worse).
If you too share this concern, capped composite decking could put your mind at rest. Capped composite decking from TimberTech comes complete with a protective polymer sleeve that’s incredibly moisture resistant.
In the event that your hound does a howler on your new decking, the capped composite nature of the boards will leave your surface completely protected. Simply wipe clean, discard of the evidence and your deck will be as good as new!
Best of all, our capped composite decking even comes with additional fade and stain cover included in the warranty, giving you even more protection and further peace of mind.
