Composite decking has established its place as the top choice for low-maintenance high quality decking projects. The range of patterns and finishes available continues to expand and a new addition is EasyClean Legacy Tigerwood from TimberTech.
Capped composite decking is the most robust low-maintenance choice available. The range of finishes continues to grow, but the Tigerwood finish offers something new that has the appearance of hand-finished Tigerwood. Combining this stunning wood pattern with the superb qualities of capped composite decking offers a fine addition to the range of composite decking now available.
Capped composite decking explained
Composite decking is manufactured using wood and plastic polymers. These are often recycled products. The wood may be in the form of fibres, chips or a flour-like consistency and is mixed with the plastic using heat and other treatments. When the mixture is of a suitable consistency it is formed into lengths of decking board. Treatments that protect the colour from fading are added to the mixture. Capped composite decking has the added quality of an external coating that is bonded to the core of the decking. This gives even more durability and resistance to fading, staining and damage. The two types of composite decking available today are capped and non-capped.
What makes capped composite decking so robust?
Although capped composite decking can be worked in exactly the same way that traditional timber decking can and requires no specialised tools to do so it is far more robust than timber. The density and material from which capped composite decking boards are formed offers a high degree of resistance to the things that cause timber to deteriorate, specifically the changes of temperature brought about by the weather, damage from water and moisture, and fungus In other words, capped composite decking won’t rot or deteriorate in the way that traditional timber will.
Super low maintenance
Because of its high levels of durability capped composite decking is also extremely easy to maintain. It does not require painting, sealing or varnishing in the way traditional timber does. The capped surface offers a high level of protection against staining and scratching and requires very basic maintenance such as sweeping and washing with water to keep clean. The surface of TimberTech’s EasyClean Legacy Tigerwood does not trap dust and dirt and so maintenance is minimal.
Always best to obtain samples
Whatever the project or your personal taste it is always wise to take advantage of the free samples that are available from suppliers. TimberTech offer free samples of our EasyClean Legacy Tigerwood. There is no substitution for handling the product and seeing a sample ‘on site.’

What is EasyClean Terrain Decking?
TimberTech’s EasyClean Terrain deck boards are made with revolutionary technology to provide consumers with a durable decking option. The boards have a polymer sleeve that protects the surface against moisture. Capped decking is easy to clean because it does not allow spillages to penetrate. You can get rid of spills by simply wiping your garden deck with a damp cloth, which reduces the maintenance that your deck requires during its lifespan. The protective sleeve eliminates the risk of staining, which is a big concern with garden decks. The deck boards have a standard stain/fade cover and a thirty-year warranty. Take advantage of TimberTech’s April sale to install this reliable and trouble-free decking in your home.
What You Get
When you buy our EasyClean Terrain deck boards, you get the option of four colours – elm, silver maple, stone ash and birch. If you are aiming for that natural-wood appearance in your garden decking, elm, and birch provide that. The silver maple hue is achieved by repeating the manufacturing process on the deck boards for that duo-tone effect. The two-colour theme of this particular hue is perfect if you want a trendy-looking deck*.
We offer two profiles of our garden decking. There is the grooved profile, which is designed to match with our patented CONCEALoc fastening system. The fasteners are hard to spot, which adds to the aesthetics of the decking. Buyers can also get the ungrooved edge deck boards, which need screws of the same colour as the decking for face fixing.
The EasyClean Terrain deck boards from TimberTech are resistant to fading and don’t necessitate regular treatment to maintain their appearance. You won’t have to spend money on products or time applying them on your garden decking to keep it from discolouring. This property makes our EasyClean Terrain decking ideal for the busy homeowner.
Each deck board is 4.8m in length, 138mm in width and 24m in height. The capped boards do not trap dust or dirt, which improves their durability. The less you have to clean your garden decking, the longer it lasts. Because TimberTech’s EasyClean Terrain decking is water resistant, you can install it next to your pool or under a tree without worrying about warping, rotting or other moisture related issues. Capitalise on these advantages with our April sale of EasyClean Terrain deck boards.
