Timber Tech composite decking


If you’re considering installing composite decking in your garden, you might have a few questions before you get started. Composite decking is a very popular choice for decking projects; but why is that the case? Well, it’s well known that composite decking is slip-resistant and low maintenance… but what about longevity?

If you’ve found your way to this blog post, it’s likely that you’re wondering whether or not composite decking will deteriorate over time. Well, the team here at TimberTech is ready to answer your questions, so read on to find out more about the longevity of composite decking and how it compares to other popular decking options.


Does Composite Decking Deteriorate Over Time?

When it comes to decking options, there are three main contenders; composite, traditional wood decking, and plastic. All three options are wildly different when it comes to maintenance, slip resistance, and installation, but what we’re really interested in is durability.

Traditional wood decking has benefits in its own way, but when it comes to durability, it’s just not a very strong contender. Wood requires a lot of treatment, and even with all the time and money that goes into such care, wood decking still gets damp, rots and wears away under exposure to the elements.

Plastic decking doesn’t rot like wood does, but still suffers its own issues. In certain instances, such as hot weather, PVC decking can experience something known as thermal expansion. The heat causes the plastic to expand, causing warping and splitting.

In terms of durability and longevity, no decking options stand up to composite decking. Composite decking can withstand all manner of weather conditions, from extreme cold, heat, rain and snow, and still only require a quick jet wash once a year to keep it looking brand new. You can rely on TimberTech composite decking to stand the test of time; in fact, we’re so confident in the longevity of our products, that all of our boards come with a 30-year warranty!

It almost sounds too good to be true, right? Well, if you want to see the fantastic durability and resilience of TimberTech composite decking, order your free sample today and feel the unrivalled quality for yourself.

Why Is Composite Decking So Durable?

Composite decking is just that; a composite. It’s comprised of a synthetic blend of wood and plastic. This gives it an authentic wood feel, but it’s unsusceptible to damp and rot like traditional wood decking is. It also leaves composite decking resistant to warping and splitting in certain temperatures, and you won’t experience splinters and cracks like you would with wood decking.

With so many benefits, it’s hard not to love composite decking! If you’re interested in browsing the range of decking options available from TimberTech, check out the link down below
