Improving your garden – benefits of replacing your decking
As the weather warms, more of us are drawn outdoors to enjoy the sunshine. It’s a great time to throw on some sunglasses, invite some friends and family around and prepare the BBQ. As well as old decking being a bit of an eyesore, here are some great reasons to get on and replace your decking with composite decking!
1. Safety for family & guests
Traditional, dated decking is often very slippery when it’s wet. Whether you’re lucky enough to own a pool or trying to escape a trademark summertime downpour, a slippery deck is a health hazard. Children are often running about in the garden and having a slip hazard like old decking won’t be making a parent’s life any easier. Our composite decking is slip resistant and doesn’t carry the risk of splintering, warping or rotting saving you from a trip hazard or risk of splinters. It’s a simple solution to a very common problem especially for families.
2. Durability of this modern material
Our range of composite decking is made from a combination of recycled wood fibres and plastic giving it the appearance of wood but the sturdy performance and reliability of plastic. This environmentally friendly choice is completely recyclable and guaranteed for up to 25 years giving you peace of mind. Being eco-conscious is a choice more & more of us want to make to not add to the ever-growing plastic pollution problem, composite decking is a positive choice for doing your bit for the environment.
3. Maintenance is easy
Unlike wooden decks, which require treatment a few times a year to avoid cracking or splinting, composite decking requires minimal maintenance. The boards are resistant to the sun’s rays, so they won’t fade like other decking materials. A deep clean with soapy water or a pressure washer (set to low) when required will keep the deck free from any accumulation of dirt or mould.
4. Budget-friendly decking
Some wooden decking, especially softwood, may have a slightly lower initial cost to install. However, because wooden decking requires treatment once or twice a year, the additional cost of the treatment and the time taken to do it, make composite decking an affordable choice.
5. Beautiful finishes
The aesthetic of composite decking is in the eye of the beholder, but we love seeing our customer’s finished product. Our range of decking comes in an array of colours to choose from and more and more of our customers are going for a mix and match of complementary colours to create a beautiful deck area.
