The Many Benefits of Choosing Composite Decking for your Garden

Composite Decking

Composite decking is a wood-plastic composite (WPC) material that looks good and performs well in domestic and commercial settings. People choose composite decking because it is a hard-wearing, eco-friendly option that will look beautiful for longer than traditional timber decking.

Because composite decking is made from 60 percent FSC© responsibly sourced wood and 40 percent recycled plastics, it delivers a solid and durable outdoor flooring that does not rot and can stand up to even the harshest of British weather.

If you are thinking of sprucing up your garden with new decking, then choosing composite decking makes a lot of sense. It is more robust than traditional timber decking and is not prone to warping, or splitting from the effects of hot or cold weather.

Builddeck offers a wide range of composite decking colours and finishes to suit everyone’s tastes.

Virtually maintenance-free

As well as having excellent eco-friendly credentials, composite decking is a great choice for those looking to establish a low-maintenance garden. It is ideal for busy working professionals who have little time to maintain a garden and for the elderly and less abled who want a long-lasting solution that requires minimal effort to maintain.

We have produced an easy to follow composite decking maintenance guide to show you just how simple it is to keep your Builddeck composite decking looking good all year round, year after year.

One of the most attractive benefits of having composite decking installed is that you never need to apply wood stains or varnishes each year to keep it looking good. A simple brush down with some soapy water will keep your composite decking looking as good as it did the day you had it installed!

Colour and texture options

One of the biggest gripes we hear from people wanting to install decking in their garden is the lack of choice available from their local DIY store. Most places only offer either plain, unstained wood decking that you will then have to stain, paint or varnish yourself once it has been installed, or it will come in an unattractive pre-stained colour that doesn’t match your taste.

However, by choosing from our wide range of composite decking options, we are confident you will find a colour and finish that perfectly complements your garden and taste.

Our Victoria decking range offers an elegant board with a choice of subtle wood grain effect or low risk of slip groove surface, perfect for all outdoor areas.

Our Vintage decking range offers you a choice of rich colours with a subtle wood grain effect on one side and a low-risk-of slip groove surface on the other, making it a high quality yet low maintenance alternative to traditional wooden decking.

Our Heritage decking range offers you a perfect balance of the natural warmth and feel of wood with the durability and strength of plastic. Available in an amazingly natural-looking variety of colours, perfectly blended to create organic, naturally weathered, multi-tone wood colours.

Easy installation

Our composite decking is easy to install. You certainly don’t need to go out and buy any specialist tools to fit this decking by yourself. If you already have a set of standard woodworking tools in your shed or garage, then you should get by perfectly well. 

However, if you don’t want to fit the decking yourself, then you could hire a local handyperson to do this for you. Builddeck makes the whole process easy for you. Simply submit the square meterage into our online decking calculator to determine how much decking you need, along with the required fixings. You can submit these calculations to us, and our team will give you a quote.

We even have FREE downloadable installation guides that you can use if you plan on installing your composite decking by yourself.
