The main advantages of composite decking boards and composite garden rooms are:-

  • You will never have to treat or paint your composite decking boards.
  • Splinter free – you will never get a splinter from your composite decking Boards.
  • Slip free – if you have had a timber deck in the past you will be well aware how slippy and dangerous a wooden deck can be in the winter, icy months. Treacherous is the word. Because composite decking boards are made up of 20% timber and 80% plastic moss and ice does not adhere to it as it does to timber, Hence non-slip.
  • Available in many different colours with UV protection and the colour is right the way through, so very little fading.
  • It won’t rot crack or warp.
  • Eco-friendly option – made from recycled products and you don’t have to cut trees down to produce.
  • And it comes with a 25 year guarantee.

Sounds good right? The only dis-advantages i can think of is just one thing – The cost of the raw materials. The cost of each decking board is more than double of a timber decking board.

The advantages of a Timber Deck:-

  • Cost – Timber decks cost half the price to buy and install compared to composite decking.
  • Rustic natural look.
