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?

One of the fantastic aspects of TimberTech's composite deck boards is the longevity and durability that they provide. With the ability to last for such a long time, there is no wonder why we provide a 30-year warranty on all of our composite decking boards, ensuring both quality and reliability and giving you the ease of mind that you will not have to replace your deck soon after getting it installed.

To illustrate this, take a look at the infographic we have made to show the journey over the 30-year warranty. (click here to expand)

Infographic Transcript

We offer a 30-year warranty on our composite decking boards! But let's put that in real terms. Imagine a beautiful baby boy named Dec was born on the same day you TimberTech decking was fitted. A lot can change over the course of 30 years, but as you're about to see, TimberTech decking can stand the test of time!

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.

*Silver Maple decking is not included in the April offer
