When you decide to add a deck to your garden, it's not a decision that you take lightly. There's planning, installation and maintenance to think about before you embark on your garden renovation. After all, you want to make sure that the decking you choose isn't going to need ripping up and replacing in only a few years time!
One of the main reasons that homeowners choose TimberTech composite decking is because it lasts so much longer than traditional timber boards. Where wood is susceptible to rot, water damage, splitting and splintering (not to mention the hours of maintenance it demands), composite decking has a polymer sleeve which eliminates all these problems!
With the rise in popularity of composite decking over recent years, it comes to no surprise that more and more homeowners are asking questions regarding its practicality, with one of the main queries surrounding its use in the warmer months.
Homeowners that are considering installing composite decking in their outdoor spaces are asking the question, "does composite decking get hot in the summer?" With traditional wood decking known to absorb a fair amount of heat during hotter spells of sunshine, it makes perfect sense why people would ask the same question regarding its composite counterpart. If you're one of these people that are wondering whether composite decking gets hot in the summer, then you've come to the right place! The experts at TimberTech are here to help.
In order to give an accurate answer to this question, however, a number of factors need to be considered as each has a degree of influence on how much heat gets absorbed and retained. These are the deck's exposure to sunlight, the colour of the deck boards and the type of composite decking used.
If you're thinking of adding a deck to your garden and really making the most of this summer, you'll be pleased to learn that we have a great range of TimberTech composite deck boards on sale at clearance prices!
For those of you who are looking to add a new deck to your property, the chances of wanting a decking material that can stand up to elements are high. I mean, who wants deck that is going to fall apart at the first sign of a storm, right? Right. So, knowing whether or not your deck can withstand the challenges that Mother Nature brings is sure to be a huge selling point. One of the many questions that you may ask in that regard when looking to add a composite deck to your property is whether composite decking is fireproof, or at least fire-resistant, especially if you live in a climate where situations involving fires such as bushfires are a common possibility. Here, we explain how decking materials are tested and rated and whether or not composite decking is in fact fireproof.
