What is Composite Decking?

Whilst traditional timber cladding is made solely from pine, this decking combines various materials for added durability. By combining two or more materials, composite cladding is resistant to weathering and therefore won’t splinter or warp. The most popular type of composite decking is wood plastic composite (WPC). This combines wood fibres with a plastic bonding agent to offer unrivalled strength and durability.

What Are The Differences Between Hollow and Solid Decking?

Whilst both hollow and solid decking can be used on a variety of projects, they offer a selection of benefits for particularly uses. Hollow decking, for example, is ideal for residential projects where there is little footfall or heavy loads. Solid decking, on the other hand, is purposely crafted for commercial projects where crowds congregate and heavy loads may be placed on the boards.

Are These Composite Decking Boards Easy to Fit?

Installing a composite deck in your garden couldn’t be any easier. You simply require the appropriate number of boards and a few added extras, such as joists and corner trims. It’s important to raise your deck off the ground in order for air to circulate. This can be achieved by using purposely designed joists on either a timber or concrete base. You must then use a combination of screws and sealants to ensure your decking boards and flashings are securely held in place.

Are These Decking Boards Slippery?

One of the biggest misconceptions of composite decking is that it is more slippery than alternative types of decking. However, the majority of these decking boards feature a slip resistant surface. This is typically in the form of either narrow or wide groves throughout the width of the each board. It is also recommended that you install your decking at a slight angle to prevent the build-up of water, which is often the primary cause of slippery surfaces.

What support is required for composite decking?
Supporting every composite deck is a strong and reliable subframe which can be made up of joists and pedestals or battens. This substructure is vitally important to make sure your deck allows drainage and airflow, and your deck is only as durable as the frame holding it up. Our range of decking substructure accessories includes adjustable pedestals, corrosion-resistant weight-bearing aluminium joists and composite battens.

How do I remove stains from my composite decking?
Try to act fast! If the spill has just occurred, immediately wipe it up to stop it staining the surface of the deck. If grease is present, clean the deck with soapy water and a scrubbing brush, or try washing it with a bleach-free composite decking cleaner before hosing clean. Always follow any product instructions carefully, and make sure the water is not too hot.

How much care does a composite deck need?
Keeping your decking clear and clean takes very little time and makes a big difference. If you use your deck for eating, barbecuing and drinking, keep an eye out for spills and wipe them up immediately to prevent the deck board staining. For general maintenance, just sweep debris off the boards and from in the gaps between boards as needed to stop algae and mould growing. Every spring and autumn we recommend washing down the whole deck with a soft scrubbing brush and soapy water, before rinsing clean with a hose. Areas subject to higher mould growth may need power washing, bleach free cleaner or treatment with a copper sulphate solution.
How much composite decking should I order?
A very common question! At checkout we have a composite decking calculator that turns the square feet or square metre measurement of your decking project into the correct number of boards. We suggest adding an extra 5% of materials for off-cuts and wastage, or an extra 15% for diagonally aligned boards.
