To the man on the street, composite decking might not seem as attractive as real wood products. We’ve been trained to believe that natural products are inherently better than artificial ones, and surely a garden deck will look all the more gorgeous for being made out of genuine wood...won’t it?
But if composite decking has taught us one thing, it’s this: even nature can benefit from a little helping hand every now and again! We’ve done our best to bring you materials that look as much like real wood as possible, and a TimberTech deck looks surprisingly similar to a hardwood construction. Only an expert would spot the difference, and even if composite decking doesn’t look absolutely identical to the real deal, some might say that’s a good thing. After all, hardwood decking doesn’t look all that good when it’s gone exposed to the elements for too long!
Interestingly, composite decking materials are more eco-friendly than natural wood products, too. Hardwood decking production involves deforestation, and we at TimberTech can proudly boast that not a single tree gets cut down to make our composite decking. There is real wood within the boards, but we only use reclaimed wood that would go straight into a landfill if we didn’t use it. Not only are we leaving the forests alone, we’re keeping usable wood products off the rubbish heap!
Composite wood decking is better than hardwood decking in almost every respect. If you’re still not convinced that TimberTech decking is up to the task, we’d strongly recommend that you order a free sample pack today. It’s sure to persuade you that composite is king!
