What is Composite Decking?

Composite decking will offer a better sustainable solution than standard wood and is made from recycled plastics and FSC® certified responsibly sourced wood. This is created using both natural and synthetic hardwood blends.  The process results in high-quality boards that look great and require less maintenance than traditional wood. The components are bonded to create an incredibly long-lasting inner core, designed to outlast everyday timber. Our products are designed to recreate the appearance of real wood with different colours and patterns of the grains. Composite boards are low maintenance and yet still have the natural appearance of traditional wood decks.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.

Our composite decking boards are a cost-effective and high-performance solution that have been designed to mimic the same natural look and feel of natural wood, providing a good colour and texture with a splinter-free surface. 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.

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.

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.

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.
