Does composite decking fade?

The sun impacts materials at an atomic level, breaking down chemical bonds and fading colours in the process. As such, virtually all man-made materials will suffer some form of fading when exposed to a continued onslaught of UV rays.

Any fading will usually settle over time depending on your spatial layout and the amount of direct sun light the boards are exposed to. Slight colour variations may occur when ordering boards from different batches. Please provide as much information as possible when making an enquiry to ensure you are provided with enough boards initially to avoid any possible batch variations.

Colour Fading

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.
