Capped composite decking

In case you haven't heard, capped composite decking is the latest revolution to rock the outdoor flooring industry. Capped deck boards come with a protective, water-resistant sleeve that keeps moisture from being absorbed into your deck; not only does this prevent staining and water damage, it also means that any spills or mess can be wiped clean away without leaving a trace.

So, what capped products do we at TimberTech UK have to offer?

Our flagship capped decking collection is called EasyClean Terrain - it was one of the first capped ranges available in the UK, and it's become one of our most popular options of all. Our EasyClean Terrain+ Silver Maple boards were even featured on ITV!

Then there's EasyClean Legacy, our premium capped decking range. It comes a variety of different colours - including Tigerwood - which can be combined to create eye-catching patterns like the one shown above.

If you're looking for a high-performance composite decking product with a traditional brown wood appearance, look no further than EasyClean Brown Oak. This gorgeous brown decking product has a wonderful grained texture that's every bit as beautiful as genuine oak...

...and yet it also boasts a number of additional features and specifications that make it a far more practical choice than hardwood decking. These include:

  • A protective polymer sleeve. EasyClean is one of TimberTech's capped decking ranges, which means that each Brown Oak board is safeguarded by a polymer sleeve that keeps out moisture and preserves the surface of your deck. Any liquids that you spill on your beautiful brown decking can be simply wiped away, leaving your boards looking brand new once more.

  • An extended lifespan. Our Brown Oak decking comes with a 25 year warranty for ALL residential installations. This even includes fade and stain cover!

  • Minimal maintenance requirements. Like all of TimberTech's composite deck boards, this brown decking option requires practically zero maintenance (unlike traditional wood decking, which has to be stained/oiled frequently).

When you picture a deck, you probably picture something like this:

Cedar decking

Pictured: Reliaboard Cedar

This is what we at TimberTech refer to as a 'traditional' deck: the sort of deck that people have been adding to their homes for decades, with rich brown boards and a natural wood grain. It's a picturesque look, for sure, but it's also a very conventional one, and if you want something slightly more unusual for your outdoor space then you may be more interested in one of our more modern decking ranges.

Here are three examples of what we have to offer would-be deck owners with contemporary-leaning tastes:

Silver maple decking

EasyClean Terrain+ Silver Maple

As their name suggests, our Silver Maple deck boards have a silvery look that's flecked with hints of a darker grey for added visual appeal. These were the boards we supplied for ITV's Love Your Garden series; the brief for the episode in question was to create a futuristic garden design for a family of five, so our Silver Maple decking already has a great reputation as a thoroughly modern choice!

Grey decking

Reliaboard Grey

These deck boards represent a stunning collision of modern and traditional styles: they have an organic-looking wood grain, but the striking grey colour puts them among the most contemporary decking choices on the market!

VertiGrain Grey Decking

VertiGrain Grey

Last but not least, here's another gorgeous grey decking product - the grained surface is very appealing, and since VertiGrain decking is compatible with our CONCEALoc® fixing system, there'll be no visible fixings to spoil the look of the boards. In fact, all of the products mentioned above are compatible with the CONCEALoc® system, so you'll never have to worry about those unsightly joints and screws!

We have a huge range of contemporary composite decking options to choose from here at TimberTech UK - contact us to discuss your project today!

We offer several different composite decking ranges here at TimberTech UK - from the authentic wood grain of Reliaboard to the wipe-clean surface of our EasyClean collection, we really do have something to suit every would-be deck owner.

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.
