The Benefits of Composite Decking Over Timber Decking

While in theory purity is the best answer, sometimes a synthesis is more realistic and often the better response. When the object in question is building materials, the case couldn't be any more relevant. When it comes to building or renovating your home, timber is often the most sought-after choice; its simplicity and genuineness are often met with its sturdiness and longevity. But, we shouldn't let tradition control our choices.

Today, composite timber actually possesses some of the most commendable aspects as your choice for modern-day decking. When it comes to maintenance, the mixture of wood, fibre and plastic make composite lumber extremely versatile, requiring only the occasional clean. Because composite timber decking is not made up of 100% wood - painting, staining and sealing are unnecessary! Durability? Look no further! Composite timber is almost completely resistant to mold. It will not rot or split, nor will it splinter. On the other hand, traditional lumber decking weathers easily as it is subject to smouldering heat and harsh rains, which can cause the deck to fade and warp. What's more is that a composite timber deck will last almost a decade more than a traditional timber deck, giving you over 30 years of dedicated use. When it comes to design and style, composite decking is offered in a variety of colours and can match the appeal of traditional lumber and exotic hardwood.
