History of Composite Decking

The use of composite lumber to create beautiful and stylish garden decking is a relatively new concept, with the advent of using composite materials to mould functional and stylish decking only occurring in the 1990s. Since then, it has revolutionised the way in which both businesses and individuals can style their outdoor space.

Composite decking combines plastic resin with wood fibre to create a much more durable material with which to create a long lasting outdoor space. This material is ideal for homes and gardens, offering a low maintenance alternative to traditional materials and saving you money as a result.

Longlife Batons (joists)

Hollow composite batons can be used for the base of the decking systems when installing the decking on a flat surface such as a balcony.  They are not recommended for structural supports or for where a surface can be uneven.  The batons are in 2.2m lengths and are 50mm x 30mm in dimension.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Composite Decking Made Out Of?

Composite decking is an advanced material that moulds together plastic resin with wood and wood fibres. This combination allows for an authentic looking product with a dramatically longer life span than traditional wood decking. As it is made from recycled materials, it is also good for the environment.

Is it Slippery When Wet?

Unlike traditional decking, composite decking does not become slippery when wet. Composite decking absorbs significantly less water than traditional materials and also limits the growth of fungi and mould which can make the surface slippery. This gives you a safe and secure platform to walk on, making it suitable for children and the elderly.

Is it Difficult to Install?

Composite decking is simple to install and does not need any specialist knowledge to be able to make your outdoor space look great.
Composite decking is designed to cut like wood, so if you’re comfortable with a saw then you’ll be more than happy to install this decking. It also has the benefit of having no splinters and will not split like traditional wood, making it even easier to fit. There is also the added advantage of not needing to treat it when installing, shaving off many hours of work that you would have to undertake if using the traditional approach.

Does it Wear Well over Time?

The main advantage to composite decking is its longevity. Gone are the hours of sanding and coating every year, composite decking is designed to wear better than traditional materials with none of the hassle that goes with annual maintenance. It also eliminates the problems of warping, splitting and woodworm, giving you a high quality decking that lasts.
The expected lifespan of our composite decking is 25 years and it comes with a 10 year manufacturers guarantee, giving you the peace of mind that your decking will not need to be replaced for a long time.

Do I Need to Treat It?

No! The plastic resin means that the surface will not need ongoing maintenance to retain its same level of finish. Composite decking offers a consistent colour over time without the need to sand, seal and paint.

Will I Tell the Difference Between Composite and Real Wood?

Composite decking has a real wood content and is designed to look just like the real thing. You can choose from a range of colours including Charcoal, Oak, Redwood or Light Grey so that you can get the finish that you desire with all of the added benefits that come with choosing composite decking over traditional wood. We have a long list of testimonials from customers who are delighted with the look and feel of their decking, making this a great alternative to real wood for a stylish outdoor space.
