Thinking of using hardwood decking in your garden? Before you make a decision, we strongly recommend taking a look at what TimberTech decking has to offer – our composite wood decking is a cleaner, greener alternative to hardwood decking that looks just as good, lasts a lot longer, and requires far less maintenance.
Why choose TimberTech over standard hardwood decking?
Easier to install
Hardwood decking can be difficult to install, often involving specialist tools, lots of time and considerable wastage – especially if you want a smooth, streamlined deck with no visible fasteners. With no knots to remove, every bit of the TimberTech board can be used; compared to hardwood decking, our products are easier to fit using standard tools, and the CONCEALoc® hidden fastener system allows for a quicker, easier finish that’s free of visible fixings.
Virtually maintenance free
Hardwood decking may look good, but to keep it looking that way, you’ll need to spend a lot of time (and money) stripping, cleaning and oiling it. This process requires a lot of effort, and it introduces potentially harmful chemicals to the ecosystem; our composite wood decking is a far superior option, requiring no more than an occasional sweep and wash to stay looking great.
Looks good for longer
After a few months in the great outdoors, hardwood decking naturally weathers, turning black or grey. Cleaning and re-oiling the boards will fix this, but a few months later, you’ll need to do it again. While TimberTech composite decking lightens a little during the first few months of its life, it stays exactly the same from then on. This is why our products generally come with longer warranties than hardwood deck boards.
