Product Details

Our Composite deckboards represent another potential solution for decking around the house and garden. You might have had softwood decking and found that your garden is too damp with maybe lush shrubbery or a swimming pool?  While Hardwood and Millboard are potential alternatives they can be a budget breaker. Composite decking may be the product you need

Composite Deckboards

These WPC composite deckboards are made primarily from a mix  of recycled hardwood fibres and polyethylene. These raw materials are mixed with a bonding agent, colour tint and additives. An anti-UV agent is also used to helps resist colour fade of the boards. However, there will be some change in the colour of the deckboards over time.

This composite range includes both hollow and solid deck-boards.  The hollow core boards feature a honeycomb construction which help to keep the weight and materials cost down. The top of the board features the narrow spaced grooves  which provide an anti-slip surface.  After fitting the ends of the hollow boards will have to be capped. The solid core boards offer greater strength and are normally preferred for commercial, or heavy domestic usage.

Both hollow and solid boards are available in eight popular colours. The colours are charcoal, coffee, olive green, light grey, stone grey, ivory, redwood and teak.  Please note that with all decking and cladding products there may be slight colour variations between boards from different production batches.

Design and Installation

Taking a little time with the deck’s design will help with the decking installation as well as the deck’s functionality.  While the decking frame can be constructed using WPC joists they wouldn’t suit an elevated deck.  In these circumstances Plaswood or standard timber joists and posts would have to be used.  Elevation in a deck generally means steps will be needed in the deck. When planning these steps and deck edges it would be advisable to buy some solid bullnosed boards, maybe even in a contrasting colour.  By edging a grey deck area with charcoal bullnose boards the eyes will be more aware of any changes in height.

Consideration also needs to be made for which direction the grooves of the deck surface are running. The narrow grooves have the better anti-slip properties. Also consider where the water drains, this is important to the deck maintenance because damp areas will encourage algae.  Gravel soakaways are often integrated into deck design.

Decking maintenance

Finally, try to keep your decking looking good with a little bit of maintenance. These composite deckboards are hard wearing and the composite materials used mean the boards should not rot, splinter or warp the way a traditional timber board might.  Because composite boards absorb a limited amount of moisture they do not usually attract mould or fungi and they are resistant to insects. To keep your investment looking good you will need a broom, hot soapy water and a wash down with clean water. However, as easy as that may be you will need a little bit of elbow grease as well.
