Composite decking has many benefits compared to timber. It does not rot, it is mould resistive, it does not splinter, it is anti-slip, it doesn’t warp and it saves you money along with time. Calculations have shown that over the same time the cost of maintaining a timber deck can lead to thousands compared to composite decking that has very low or no maintenance.

Maintaining includes a simple process of cleaning with water. See our Maintenance page for more tips.
