When it comes to composite decking, two brands stand out from the rest as the pioneers and market leaders of composite deck boards; ourselves TimberTech and Trex. However, we believe that when it comes to choosing a composite deck for your home project, you shouldn't look any further than TimberTech and here are a number of reasons why.

Larger Product Range 

Unlike Trex, TimberTech offers an extensive range of composite deck options for you to choose from. In total, there are 5 different composite deck types available at TimberTech, each coming in 2-4 varying colour options. Trex on the other hand only offers 2 different types of composite deck. A larger deck and colour range is ideal as it provides customers with more options to choose from, with the ability to meet a plethora of design ideas as well as increasing accessibility to a wider scale of budgets. TimberTech offer quality composite deck boards at both ends of the scale, with their ReliaBoard and VertiGrain boards at the lower end and their EasyClean TerrainTropical and Legacy capped boards offering a premium option. This leads us onto our next comparable.

Materials & Capping

The way in which both brands manufacture their boards is similar. Both use a mixture of recycled wood fibres and plastics to produce the core of each composite deck board. However, the main difference between the two brands is in how they 'cap' their boards. Capped deck boards are coated with a resistant polymer wrap that protects the boards from all types of stains, fades, abrasions and most importantly moisture. Capping prolongs the life of a deck board significantly and the way in which TimberTech choose to cap the boards may be the biggest advantage we have over our competitors. 

Trex boards are capped only at the top surface, whereas TimberTech's composite boards are fully wrapped. What this means is TimberTech boards are wrapped in a full polymer sleeve, which completely seals out any moisture from breaking through and potentially causing damage to the board. When exposed to moisture, boards can absorb water which causes the decking to expand and contract which can cause the boards to split or warp. By TimberTech fully protecting their boards, they remove this possibility

Warranty

So, what happens if your boards to split or bow? There's no need to worry as both companies offer a warranty. Trex's warranty stands at 25 years, whereas, TimberTech's warranty stands at 30 years.

For these reasons, we believe that TimberTech is the one and only place to go for your composite decking. We cater to a larger amount of people, manufacture the best boards possible and ensure our customers can enjoy their deck for three whole decades. So, what are you waiting for?

Composite decking is the ultimate outdoor flooring, and we make it in some fabulous colours! One of the great things about wood composite decking is that it can be made into a wide selection of colours. This is great news for all you style-conscious home-owners, as it can really help you create a ‘wow-factor’! As you are dealing with Timbertech, you will be able to enjoy this awe-inspiring decking for years and years to come.

A unique feature on our dropdown menu allows you to search wood composite decking by colour – this gives you the opportunity to view some great images, and start visualising what would look best in your garden. We’d like to talk to you briefly about a couple of our colours, and why we think they would make a great asset to your outdoor space!

Cedar – This is perhaps one of the more popular shades of decking you’re likely to see, and it’s easy to see why! Cedar is an incredibly versatile colour that can lend itself to almost any residential or commercial property. With its soft, warm, and incredibly natural tone, it is hard to think of an environment that our cedar-wood couldn’t work in! If you opt for our edeck, the boards come with a brushed texture which really gives it that authentic wooden quality.

Grey – Our grey wood composite decking is a great modern alternative to more traditional wood-shades. You enjoy all the benefits of low maintenance decking, but in a bolder and more elegant shade that people won’t be used to. Our grey decking still has that beautiful textured look which mirrors real wood, along with providing your surface with a clean and distinct look. This decking oozes a certain contemporary-chic that will look its best against an ultra-modern building; though having said that, this shade is slate-grey after all, so would complement an older property too.

These are just our 2 main wood composite decking types, but of course we have several more to tempt you with! The main things you need to remember is we have a range of shades that will complement any property beautifully. Secondly – and perhaps most importantly – whichever shade of decking you opt for, you get the reassurance that it will require no maintenance, and last for decades to come!
