There's a common misconception that composite decking has a 'plastic' or 'fake' appearance. Back when composite decking first appeared on the market, this might have been true, but now we have manufacturing tools that allow us to create composite deck boards with all the character and charm of real wood.
One of the many drawbacks of choosing the real thing is that it actually loses its beauty over time because it's easily weathered. (Take a look at the comparison image above if you don't believe us!)For that reason, you're actually better off choosing composite decking if you want to keep a real wood look for longer than a few years. Unlike real wood, composite decking doesn't need to be sanded, stained or sealed to keep it looking fresh.
Here are few other reasons why you should choose TimberTech decking over real wood decking:
- It's easier to maintain and will last a lifetime
- The composite cap prevents tarnishing, splitting and rot
- It has a wood grain texture so it feels just like real wood underfoot
- It's kinder for the environment because it's made mostly of recycled materials
Here at TimberTech, we pride ourselves on providing a wide range of premium composite deck boards that will look and feel just like real wood. As well as a range of contemporary grey options we have a number of ranges that come in a 'real wood' colour. Here's our top pick for you!
Boasting a straight wood grain pattern and a duo-tone colour, our EasyClean Edge+ Oak decking looks just like wood. You'll be pleased to hear that it's capped with a polymer sleeve on three sides to protect the natural wood finish for years to come. This particular range comes with an impressive 25-year warranty! We're sure you won't find a real oak option anywhere that can match that!
