Read more about what to consider when choosing a supplier of composite decking boards.
Composite decking is a stylish and practical addition to any outdoor space. As with any other work being undertaken in your home or garden, it’s important to do your research before hiring anybody for the job or making any purchases.
This article will tell you what to consider when choosing a composite decking supplier to ensure that the quality and workmanship are up to the standard you expect.
How Is The Decking Manufactured?
Composite decking is manufactured around the world, and it’s important to remember that different companies adhere to different quality and safety standards.
While you may be able to purchase a cheaper option, it’s worth considering whether it is a like-for-like match, or if you’re simply paying less for an inferior product.
Do They Sell To Trade Only?
Before falling in love with a particular style of board, make sure that the supplier you’re researching will sell to you first, as they don’t all sell directly to consumers.
Some suppliers only sell wholesale or to the trade to increase their revenue and repeat business. If the decking you want is from a trade-only wholesale composite decking supplier, you may need to work with a contractor who is able to purchase and install it for you, which could make the whole process more expensive.
Do They Offer A Warranty Or Guarantee?
A warranty or guarantee is a good sign that you are purchasing a quality product.
Not only does it give you the peace of mind that your composite decking will last, it means that you won’t be out of pocket should something go wrong during the warranty period.
What Other Brands Do They Sell?
Some suppliers stock many different brands, meaning that they offer a wide variety of choices.
However, this makes it more difficult to trust or understand what you are buying, as not all brands offer the same quality or guarantee. Purchasing directly from the manufacturer will help you to be certain of the quality and service that you receive, and often provides better value for money, as there is no mark-up from a middleman.
