With so many different types of decking on the market, would-be deck owners can often find it difficult to distinguish one product from the next. Not everyone is aware, for example, of the difference between hardwood and softwood boards, or of the fact that plastic decking and composite decking are two different things.

Today, we're going to cut through the jargon and explain the key differences between two of the most popular decking materials on the market: hardwood decking and composite decking.

Materials
Hardwood decking is made of solid timber, whereas composite decking - as the name suggests - is made from a composite of natural and synthetic materials. TimberTech's composite boards, for example, are made of polyethylene, hardwood flour, and cellulose materials.

This difference in composition leads to numerous other differences, such as...

Maintenance Requirements
Hardwood decks must be cleaned and oiled regularly to preserve the boards. Composite deck boards are far less maintenance-intensive, requiring only the occasional wash to keep everything looking good.

Safety
Solid timber boards can grow quite slippery when wet; composite decking is less absorbent than hardwood, which means that it dries quicker and greatly reduces the user's risk of slipping and falling. Furthermore, composite boards are far less prone to splintering and cracking due to the difference in composition.

Appearance
Composite decking was once considered an inferior alternative to wooden decking, at least in terms of its appearance. However, manufacturing techniques have now progressed to the point that composite boards can look just as authentic as their hardwood counterparts, with attractive wood-grain surfaces that are practically indistinguishable from solid timber.

 

Environmental Impact
In many ways, hardwood decking is a very environmentally-unfriendly choice for one's garden. The wood from which the boards are made is typically harvested from tropical rainforests, and the oils that are used to seal hardwood decks can introduce undesirable chemicals into the ecosystem at large. Composite boards, as mentioned above, require no chemical maintenance, and the wood flour that's used to manufacture composite decking is made using waste wood that would otherwise be sent to a landfill.

Rainy day

If you think you hate the British weather, just imagine how the garden decks of this country must feel. Not only do they get rained on every few days, they're also exposed to a very wide range of temperatures over the course of year; our summers are hot, our winters are cold, and these two extremes (compounded, of course, by the aforementioned rain) can quickly leave a traditional timber deck looking warped, faded, and very sorry for itself.

Fortunately, our composite decking is different. TimberTech's patented manufacturing process produces deck boards that are extremely well-suited to the British climate - whatever the weatherman predicts for your part of the country, you'll never have to worry about what it will do to your TimberTech deck!

Why? Because our composite deck boards are...

...sun-resistant

Britain may not be known for its hot and sunny weather, but we do get the odd warm spell, and this can leave wooden boards looking warped and unsightly (especially when things brighten up directly after a shower). However, this doesn't apply to TimberTech decking, which is made of polymer resins as well as wood fibres. Our boards are also UV-resistant, which prevents their colours from fading in the sunlight.

...water-resistant

Why worry about water damage? Our composite decking is far less absorbent than wooden decking materials; instead of permeating the deck boards and causing unsightly stains, moisture simply remains on the surface of the deck, where it quickly evaporates without doing any damage.

...cold-resistant

With winter on its way, hardwood decks across the country will be increasingly prone to ice and frost issues over the coming months. These decks must be sealed to protect them from cracking and breaking in cold weather, whereas TimberTech's composite decking NEVER needs to be sealed (regardless of the temperature!)

August is almost over and September is tying up its laces, which means that the leaves will soon be turning orange and the nights drawing in. That's right, everyone - Autumn is on the horizon!

If you have a deck in the garden - or if you're planning to add one soon - you may well be wondering what the turning of the seasons means for your boards. The good news is that, if your deck is made of TimberTech composite decking, the answer is 'practically nothing'; our low-maintenance composite wood is exceptionally resilient and requires virtually zero maintenance no matter what page of the calendar you're on.

That being said, there are a couple of things that you may wish to do just to make sure that your composite deck looks its best all through autumn and winter:

  • Keep it free of leaves and branches. If you have any trees overlooking your garden, your deck may get covered in dead leaves as autumn wears on. This isn't a great look, so be sure to sweep away any debris to keep your decking beautiful.

  • Give the boards a clean. When you're preparing your garden for autumn, consider giving your deck boards a quick wash with a suitable deck cleaner. You should only have to do this once to keep things splendid for the entire season; feel free to contact TimberTech UK if you would like us to recommend a deck cleaner for your composite decking.

And that's pretty much it! Our composite decking is guaranteed against splitting, rotting, decaying and warping, so you won't have to worry about any of those issues no matter how bad the weather gets. You won't even need to seal your decking; just sit back and enjoy the beauty of autumn!
