Not all composite decking is alike; in fact, quality varies hugely from supplier to supplier. Our composite decking comes with an impressive 30-year warranty as standard, whereas other products on the market might not even last until Christmas!
What's the difference between good and bad quality composite decking?
One reliable indicator of quality can be seen in the body of the deck board: solid composite decking boards tend to be of a much higher overall quality than hollow boards.
Hollow composite decking may seem like a great choice at first. It's usually a lot cheaper than solid decking and it can look perfectly good on the surface. But the difference in quality lies beneath the surface.
Hollow deck boards have relatively poor structural stability. Solid decking, on the other hand, has a higher density and weight that makes it durable and long lasting!
A few things to bear in mind:
- Solid decking boards have greater load-bearing capabilities.
- Hollow boards can be noisy underfoot.
- Over time, hollow decks can start to bow and crack under pressure.
- While hollow decking may be cheaper at first, repairs and maintenance may well leave you out of pocket in the end.
Solid composite decking boards are the right choice if you want strong, stable, long-lasting decking that looks great and delivers outstanding performance.
All of the decking we supply at TimberTech is high-quality solid composite decking. Choose from a huge selection of decking including our stunning EasyClean Tropical Range, our Reliaboard Range and our Vertigrain 2 Range - all of which look just like real wood and require a fraction of the maintenance.
However, if you're working with a limited budget and you've decided you want hollow decking, our sister site DeckPlus has a variety of hollow deck boards to choose from - as hollow products go, they're the best around!
