TimberTech Composite Decking

Ideas and updates from the TimberTech blog

If you’re thinking of adding a deck to your garden, there are several different materials you can choose from. Wood, plastic and composite decking all have different properties – but which is the most environmentally conscious choice?

Environmental Impact

Traditional hardwood decking is quite a poor choice if you want to minimise the environmental impact of your new deck. Most hardwood deck boards are made from tropical timber, and as you’ve probably heard, Earth’s tropical forests are disappearing at an alarming rate. Wood decking is a product of deforestation, and some of the sealants used to protect wooden deck boards contain potentially harmful chemicals and compounds.

So perhaps plastic decking is a greener option? Well, plastic boards don’t require any trees to be chopped down, but like any plastic product, they take an awfully long time to decompose. Once your plastic boards start to bow and crack – and that’s something that can happen to plastic decking quite quickly – you’ll have to replace them, and the old decking will most likely end up in a landfill.

How Green is TimberTech Composite Decking?

Here at TimberTech, we sell composite decking that, in our opinion, is a much greener choice than wood or plastic. Our boards contain recycled polymers and all-waste hardwood which comes from the furniture and flooring industries – wood that would otherwise be thrown away. Not a single tree is cut down to make TimberTech decking, and in actual fact, our manufacturing process keeps thousands of tonnes of wood out of landfill every year.

Additionally, our boards and our packaging are 100% recyclable. The decking is formaldehyde-free, and it never needs to be stained.

And that’s why we think TimberTech is the most environmentally-conscious decking material on the market.

So you already know how beautiful, durable, and low-maintenance our composite decking products are, but are you aware of just how environmentally friendly decking from TimberTech is? We've always been proud of our eco-friendly practices, and yet many people are surprised to discover that not a single tree is cut down to make TimberTech composite decking.

Sound impossible? Our environmentally friendly decking is made of reclaimed wood, which means that instead of cutting down new trees to make our composite wood products, we use waste wood that would otherwise be headed directly for a landfill. This practice saves over 45,000,000kg of wood every year, not to mention all the trees that are left undisturbed.

This method is just one of the reasons why we believe our composite decking to be the most environmentally friendly decking available. We carry out all kinds of other eco-friendly measures on the road to your dream deck, and you can read all about them on our Eco-Friendly Decking page. We believe that sustaining the environment is just as important as providing a fantastic product, and our environmentally friendly decking is as sustainable as decking gets.
