Composite Decking FAQs

Is composite decking easy to install?

We supply a range of boards with a style, colour and price that you’ll be happy with. Easy to install and the final look is fantastic. If you have existing wood deck boards that are looking worse for wear they can be easily replaced with composite and once correctly fitted will last against the elements. Planks are easy to cut, screw down and install so are definitely worth the money.

Can you paint composite decking?

At Builddeck, we are proud to offer our customers low maintenance products that will never need to be painted. If you choose to invest in quality boards you’ll save yourself time and money, because our deck boards do not require costly and timely annual maintenance.

Why is composite decking better than wood?

Unlike wood timber decking, composite is nearly maintenance-free and does not require any staining, sanding or sealing. Compared to timber boards, our product does not rot meaning it will look pristine for years to come.

How to clean composite decking?

We recommend spending 2-3 hours a year cleaning products to keep it looking pristine. Following this recommendation will help your decking last longer and protect it against any issues in the future.

Is our decking slippery?

Composite boards are not slippery even if water is present on the surface. A non-slip grain is embedded into the surface, meaning it is extremely safe to walk on when wet, making our product safer for everyone.

How long does composite decking last?

On average the decking area will last around 20 – 25 years, with proper care and maintenance. Our product is highly resistant to rot and mold which can effect wood timber decking. It also holds up well in both hot a cold weather conditions.

Are they sun resistant?

Decks provide a great space to spend time with loved ones and connect with nature as well as boosting the value on your home. It’s no surprise that garden decking is becoming increasingly popular in the landscaping sector. New eco-friendly alternatives are more resistant that the classic timber option. There is no need to paint, seal, stain or waterproof because our boards are engineered from a blend of hardwood and plastic making them exceptionally weather resistant and durable.

Builddeck creates an engineered material made from 60% FSC® certified timber and 40% recycled high density polyethylene. Other materials include UV stabilizer, colouring, and anti-fungal and bonding agents. Combined, this creates a long lasting, low maintenance material that also retains a natural look and feel of traditional timber products, making it an ideal choice for outdoor use.

Our Vintage range is primarily available in four colours:

  • Grey - a mid grey for a contemporary finish.
  • Ebony - a dense black hardwood with brown accents.
  • Teak - a tropical hardwood for a traditional wood finish.
  • Redwood - an autumnal red as a representation of the redwood tree.

All of our products are coloured solid throughout which creates a natural lighter surface with darker more accentuated grooves.

Builddeck Vintage composite decking is conveniently double sided which creates countless cost effective design options.

  • Castle Groove - Low risk of slip grooved surface, even when wet (*Dry value: avg 52, Wet value: avg 37).
  • Woodgrain - Natural design with the look and feel of traditional timber.

Traditional soft and hardwood decking expands and contracts due to changes in climate and water absorption which will eventually lead to warping and splitting. As Builddeck composite decking is made up of 60% natural material, some expansion can occur however on a significantly smaller scale. Additionally, by leaving the correct expansion gaps as detailed within our full installation guide, any fluctuation can be pre-empted, avoiding possible future warping.

Builddeck composite decking will not rot due to the remaining 40% made up of recycled high density plastics. This creates a very low maintenance product as opposed to traditional decking which will require regular cleaning, staining and replacement.

Our carefully designed grooved surface has a certified low-risk of slip finish, even when wet, and will not splinter or crack making it a perfect pet and barefoot friendly addition to any outdoor living space or luxury area.

On average, composite decking boards are slightly more expensive when compared to similar wooden boards in the UK. But it requires very little maintenance, so no expensive repainting or staining is required. over the long-term composite decking will often work out cheaper than the equivalent timber products.

Builddeck Composite Decking products are made from 60% natural material and each board is designed to imitate traditional timber, often with naturally occurring variations in colour, texture and grain pattern. The boards are designed to weather and fade slightly to allow the colour to settle evenly over time. Slight variations may also occur when ordering from different batches, at different times. We strongly advise providing our team with as much detail as possible as to your measurements, design and additional requirements to allow us to provide the most accurate quantity initially, and avoid any possible batch variations.

Composite Decking doesn’t require any painting or staining like timber decking and requires very little maintenance and cleaning. However, to keep your decking in pristine and “as new” condition, simply hose it down with soapy water and sweep away any moss or debris. If preferred, a power/jet washer can be used to clean the decking surface and hard to reach areas, but a minimum distance of 30cm from the decking must be kept at all times.

Builddeck Composite Decking has a much higher ignition than standard timber.
