What Are The Advantages Of Composite Decking?

NeoTimber’s range of innovative, high performing materials are not only long-life, but also come with the promise of low maintenance.

Designed to make your life easier; stand the test of time; and transform outdoor space, NeoTimber® composite decking strikes the perfect balance between great looks, long-term safety and assurance, as well as enhanced strength and durability.

In this article we delve into the many advantages of composite decking over alternative outdoor flooring solutions such as natural stone and timber.

Composite Decking Advantage #1: A Long Lifespan

NeoTimber’s long-life composite decking comes with a 25-year residential warranty against splitting, splintering, rotting and structural damage caused by termites or fungal decay. Our high-quality decking is engineered to go the distance, offering a reliable solution, far more resilient to the damaging effects of the outdoor environment.

It’s no secret that moisture build-up caused by endless thrashings from the (very miserable) English weather can be detrimental to a timber deck.

Composite Decking Advantage #2: Low Maintenance, Guaranteed

Timber without the hassle! One of the key advantages of composite decking is how easy it is to maintain. With little upkeep, care or attention necessary your deck area promises to look good as new all-year-round. Our ranges of low maintenance composite decking are designed to look beautiful for longer.

Timber materials are traditionally targeted by algae, mold and mildew growth which is not only a sight for sore eyes but can also cause a slip hazard if not repeatedly treated.

Say goodbye to hours of exasperating care with this ideal timber alternative.

Composite Decking Advantage #3: Safety Assured

At NeoTimber®, we are committed to supplying industry leading, quality composite deck boards. We focus our efforts towards 3 core areas: aesthetics, performance and functionality. As a result, our 25-year warranty decking has both long-term strength and durability as well as enhanced overall performance; and an authentic woodgrain finish.

Our quality assured composite decking ensures safety and assurance for its entire lifetime – offering a safer family environment and more peace of mind.

Composite Decking Advantage #4: Cost Effective In The Long Run

Although composite decking may seem like an expensive upfront cost, the long-term advantages of composite decking soon begin to outweigh the alternatives. The cost of stripping, painting and oiling your timber deck in an attempt to restore its natural beauty, not only begins to tally-up from a cost perspective but also ends up taking up a lot of your free time (time that could be spent enjoying your deck area rather than maintaining it).

Your composite decking is an investment, it can be enjoyed summer-after-summer with little to no maintenance. Discover more about our low maintenance decking.

Composite Decking Advantage #5: Durability & Long Lasting Looks

We’ve thrown years of industry know-how into manufacturing a deck board superior in both durability and long-lasting looks. Our traditional ranges of composite decking (Essential & Classic) come with an authentic, embossed woodgrain finish. This etched finish is designed to stand the test of time, and won’t wear off like competitor composite deck boards who often print their woodgrain finish. Our capped ranges of composite decking (Advanced & Deluxe) are designed specifically with long-lasting looks and durability in mind – the boards’ tough outer shell provides enhanced stain and fade resistance, offering added protection against the stresses and strains of everyday outdoor life.
