Wooden or Composite Decking - What are the Pros and Cons?

Decking is a popular option when it comes to adding valuable flat, safe space in the garden. Built correctly and well-maintained, it will last for many years. Likewise, it suits all gardens and properties as it can be built above uneven ground, so no need for excavations and technical structural work. S & D Projects are finding decking for Glasgow homes an increasingly popular choice!


Traditionally, decking is made from wood and is still possible the most popular choice but there are a few drawbacks...

Pros of using 'real' wood

  • it looks lovely, authentic and fits aesthetically in every garden
  • smells good too!
  • some softer woods can be relatively inexpensive
  • a natural product

Cons of using 'real' wood

  • if not maintained, it can crack, split, break and generally look tired in a short space of time
  • can be very slippery in
  • hardwoods are expensive (although durable)
  • needs regular maintenance such as staining etc.

There are other options becoming available which include materials that look like wood – but without the maintenance. Invariably, they contain plastic and other composites making them very hardy.

This type of material has been in use in America for some years and there are options to use it here in the UK too; in fact, in the UK there are specialist brands of composite materials available. It is weather and water resistant and needs very little, if any maintenance; it also provides a non-slippery surface.

However, there are a few negative aspects to composite material for your Glasgow decking; being plastic based it can bend and not all customers like the ‘unnatural’ colours, preferring the look and feel of wood.

No matter what material you choose for your decking project, you can be assured that it will not only look spectacular but add much needed outdoor space to your Glasgow property!
