Composite decking – what is it and what are the benefits?
Considering all your options for your decking is important; after all, you want it to stand the test of time and the elements in your Newton Mearns garden…
Composite decking is made from a ‘new’ material that combines wood with plastic, giving it a realistic finish and it now being used in gardens across the UK to provide a functional platform in the garden. But why opt for composite material over other materials…?
A common issue with wooden decks is that people do not like the idea, or do not have the time, to maintain it, by staining or painting. With composite decking at your Newton Mearns property, there is no need for maintenance – it looks after itself. So need to worry about rotting boards, damage, uneven boards etc.
Splinter and slip-free
Another issue that can crop up with wooden decking platforms at Newton Mearns garden is that they can be slippery when wet and, of course, wood can splinter. Composite material also burns far less slowly than wood, another great safety feature.
Composite decking is also weather resistant without the need for hefty maintenance and stays looking great for a long, long time; it’s designed to last for a long time, with little maintenance!
Decking can add value to Newton Mearns properties, simply as it makes the garden more useable in all the different seasons and at any time of day. With the housing market sluggish, you need to make as much of your property as you can, making it an attractive proposition above other properties in your price bracket. A well designed and built decking could be the clinching factor in a sale.
As manufacturing techniques increase, the number of colours in which composite decking can be bought will increase; again, emulating the style and colour of natural woods, you can choose the one that suits your home best.
It may be that composite decking for your Newton Mearns property costs more that wood BUT, in the long run the product is more cost effective as it simply lasts longer. And couple with little or no maintenance, it really does look after itself.
The core of the material is made from wood chippings or sawdust that would normally be a waste product in most cases; this way, materials are reused and so you are still doing your bit for the environment.
