There are all kinds of different decks on the market, and if you're new to the world of garden decking then you might feel a little overwhelmed. The wide variety of available decking products can be roughly divided into two categories - let's call them 'Natural' and 'Synthetic' - but even when you've made a decision on that front, there will still be plenty of other decisions for you to make.
So let's say you've decided on synthetic decking. These materials may not look quite as authentic as real wood decking, but they require far less maintenance and you're keen to keep the hard graft to a minimum. But there's more than one way to do an artificial deck; you'll have to choose between plastic decking, PVC decking and, of course, composite decking.
But what, you may be wondering, is the difference? The decking novices in the audience might not even know what composite decking is, so allow us to explain. Unlike plastic and PVC decks, which are entirely artificial, composite decking is made of a wood/polymer blend to give a more natural appearance. It's semi-synthetic decking, with all the low-maintenance properties of plastic products and all the organic-looking beauty of wood.
That's why we think composite decking is the best choice when you're looking for a synthetic deck. In fact, we think that composite is the best decking material in general! If you'd like to see and feel some of our composite decking before you make a purchase, we'd strongly recommend ordering a free sample. We're pretty certain you'll be impressed!
