It doesn’t take long to start realising the advantages of composite decking. Imagine someone has written down the biggest problems and annoyances associated with traditional timber decking – well basically, our deck remedies every one of those issues, and as such makes for an exquisite flooring surface! Now if you just bear with us for a moment, we’d like to talk you through the advantages of composite decking, and why it’s the benchmark for all other floors:

Advantages of composite decking.

Little to No Maintenance

Nobody enjoys carrying out maintenance on their property, and there is nothing much worse than unnecessary maintenance! Timber decking requires regular staining, sealing, and painting just to keep it looking half-decent; we’re already pretty limited with our days of sumptuous weather as it is, do we really want to spend one or more of them with a paint brush in our hand?

Safety First

Remaining safe in your property should always be a large consideration, and that’s why our decking remains one of the most slip-resistant available. Not only will you be able to freely roam your decked area without fear of a nasty slippage, you will also be able to roam barefoot without fear of a splinter. Our decking’s ability to resist slips and splinters makes it one of the safest outdoor walking surfaces money can buy!

Long-Term Investment

When making an investment in something large like a decking project, you want the comfort of knowing it is going to last! Timber decking splits, splinters, and warps, but our decking boasts a 25 year guarantee that ought to prove just how serious we are. The careful manufacturing process ensures an extremely durable material, and its long-lasting properties will protect it from all of the elements!

The advantages of composite decking are ones that you’re going to feel and enjoy for a lifetime! To begin your journey to decking heaven, visit our website for more information.


We want your composite decking to be enjoyed all year ‘round. The thing is, enjoying your luxurious wood composite decking in only the summer months is a waste – why not utilise your beautiful new living space even when it gets a bit parky outside! With talk of Christmas getting more and more frequent, we’re officially moving away from the Autumnal period, and heading straight for winter; because of this, we thought we’d share a few tips with you on how to enjoy your decking come December!

Wrap Up

We don’t want to come across all parental, but layers are quite literally all that stands between you and an outdoor winter lifestyle. If we can send people on solo expeditions to the Antarctic, we can more than suffice with sensibly attiring someone to have a hot drink on their deck in Surrey. It may sound crazy, but take it from us: if you go to the French Alps in December, they still have deck chairs outside. And when confronted with such a picturesque view, why wouldn’t you want to take it all in, regardless of the season?

If There’s No Place to Go…

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Okay, this may seem like a long shot, but we’ve been graced with heavy snow for the past few years running. Forget about the traffic disruptions; instead, concentrate on building an awesome snowman on your wood composite decking. Or pull up a chair, a steaming hot chocolate, and enjoy how much prettier your surroundings look when flurried with frost and sprinkled with snowflakes!

We hope you get the general idea. Why plough money, time, and effort into creating yourself a beautiful garden only to seal it off for most of the year? Put on some appropriate clothing, grab yourselves a hot beverage, and enjoy your outdoor area in all its wondrously-wintery glory.

There are so many reasons why you’d opt for slip-resistant decking, as opposed to more treacherous floor surfaces! For a multitude of different people, places, and purposes slip-resistant decking is the safest way to the perfect decked area! If you are looking for a decked area to surround your swimming pool or hot tub, or if you’re seeking quality decking that is going to last waterside, our decking simply fares better than the rest. On the slightly-less glamorous side of things, if you want a decking material that isn’t going to become a hazard every time it rains – which let’s face it, is probably a lot – then TimberTech deck is your only option!

When compared to more traditional surfaces like timber, our slip-resistant decking performs outstandingly well. Timber looks great, we have never denied this, but the material itself is fraught with flaws that you just don’t get with TimberTech boards. The little nooks and crannies you find in timber deck collect all kinds of dirt and debris; not only that, but when water fills them it freezes, and that ice bulges out of the grooves creating a rink-like surface. Now as you can imagine this causes quite a hazard, but don’t fear, as you get none such drawbacks when dealing with our decking!

examples of our slip-resistant decking

Our slip-resistant decking takes in a lot less water your average decking – less than 1.2%, if you’re interested – meaning our boards will not suffer from mould, or algae build-up. And even when our deck does get wet, it doesn’t stay wet for long! Just 30 minutes is all our decking needs to completely dry, no matter how much of a soaking it has had. The speed at which it does dry makes it an ideal candidate for surrounding your pools, hot tubs, and ponds, as well being a safe surface to walk on in our wettest weather!

The best way to keep any deck looking its best, and to stop any dirt building up is by power washing it. When you power wash traditional timber decking, yes it may clean a lot of the buried dirt off and leave it momentarily looking good, but you’re actually damaging the wood itself. When you power wash timber deck is splits the surface making it even more susceptible to water-damage; not only that but while you may remove excess mould, if its pores have already got into your wood, then expect a resurfacing very soon. Luckily, you do not get any such dramas when power washing TimberTech – it’s actually the best way to give it a good spritz once in a while!

Remember, there is no such thing as non-slip decking, but our slip-resistant decking is as close as you’re going to get to it. We attained the best rating for the British and European standards in slip-resistant boards – ours were actually the best performing in the composite decking sector. We back up our promises with proven facts, and even a 25 year warranty just in case you needed any more convincing! If you are going to subject your decking to a lot of moisture, make sure it can keep its head above the water, and carry on looking pristine. 

Wood composite decking is an absolute revelation in the world of outdoor flooring. In wood composite decking we now have a material that surpasses its rivals in pretty much every category, making it the ultimate luxury deck! We have managed to condense most of its best features into 5 compelling points, and if you want an outdoor area decked to perfection, please read on!

Maintenance? What Maintenance!

Our first point brings us to a direct comparison with one of our biggest competitors, timber decking. You see timber decking does put up a decent fight in the aesthetics department, what with its natural looking charm and character making it an appealing decking material. Have you seen our wood composite decking recently? It is pretty much indistinguishable from beautiful real wood decking, and as hardwood flour is used in the manufacturing process, there is some real tree in there too! The difference between the two is the amount of time you’re going to spend maintaining it. While timber decking requires regular staining, painting, and treating, our composite boards resist the wet, weather, and warping making them by far the most practical choice.

Good looks that are here for a marathon, and not a sprint

It is not just the wild, wet, and windy conditions we have here in the UK that our composite deck puts up a fight against; once you have your lovely new boards laid, you can take great comfort in knowing they’ll resist heat and fade too! Should we be blessed with another scorcher like we had this year, the deep-rich colour pigments that embellish your decking are going to stay fresh and vibrant. In fact, our boards stand up so well to the heat that they remain cool to the touch, however much the sun sears!

Guaranteed Durability

We’ve mentioned wood composite decking and its ability to stand up to the elements, but these are no empty promises, we back up our claims with a 25 year warranty! Our decking is made using a patented process which results in the same long-lasting, delightfully-durable decking every time. This means that however our turbulent weather behaves, your decking is one less thing to worry about!

Safety First

So far we have established that TimberTech deck looks great, and can look after itself when things get tempestuous, but it also helps keep us in good order too. It does this by offering you one of the safest walking surfaces available, even when wet! And not only are you not going to be slipping up anytime soon, but it is also splinter-free as well – this means that when summer does come you can roam freely and bare-foot around your deck, without worry of a nasty reprisal!

You Get Back What You Put In

This last point is a real clincher, as although our wood composite decking is an investment, it is an investment that should see a large return! By having such a high-quality deck installed in your home, the value added to your property as a whole should return you nearly 80% of its cost. This is great news as not only are you increasing the value of your assets, but it shows just how valued a sumptuous deck can be!

When people ask us what it is that is so special about our composite boards, we’re more than happy to tell them! We truly believe our composite boards are the most exquisite outdoor flooring material available, and really do bring a piece of decking heaven to your outdoor area! We could quite literally rabbit on for pages and pages about our decking, but for your sanity – and perhaps ours – here a few concise points that should make your mind up for you.

Low Maintenance Composite Boards - The fact that our decking is so low maintenance is a real clincher for a lot of people! If you have ever owned timber decking, you will know just how much work goes into treating and staining the wooden boards. Being a natural material, timber absorbs plenty of water, and this equals water-damage, as well as an infinite number of possible stains.

Our TimberTech decking is manmade, and although it looks identical to timber decking in appearance, beneath that exterior it has a lot more going on! The patented mix of wood flour and polyethylene ensures that our deck stands up brilliantly to the elements. This ability to resist the weather means you won’t have to dedicate a couple of days every year to your deck – it is in this sense that our composite boards offer you less work, and indeed more life!

Strong Aesthetics – We understand that today’s world is an image-conscious one, and luckily for you our composite boards are very 2013! While we have plenty of critical things to say about the performance of real wood decking, we cannot fault the natural charm they give your garden; it is for this reason that our decking has been made to look near-identical to real wood!

Better still, as ours is a manufactured material we have the ability to make it in Grey, Cedar, Redwood, Chestnut, Oak, Silver, and even Slate colours – all the while our composite boards are retaining their famous durability in all manner of beautiful shades.

Wise Investment – What if we said you could make up to 80% returns on your investment when/if you were to sell your home, would that interest you? It turns out our superior decking material is not just an investment in your time, but in the value of your home as well! Our decking also comes with a 25 year guarantee – so even if you are sure you wouldn’t be selling your home in the next few years, you have plenty of time to reap those benefits. Plus, even if you are staying-put, it says a lot about the quality of our decking that it can demand such large increases on the value of your home.

Can you now see why we are so passionate about TimberTech decking? It literally does blow all other competitors out of the water – and then protects your decking from the splash-back.  In so many areas of our lives we are told to invest in the future, and with composite decking you can see why it is worthwhile. Save yourselves the effort of upkeep, enjoy your beautiful-looking deck, and take comfort in knowing your investment is a viable one, all with TimeberTech’s composite boards.
