Composite Decking: A Cost-Effective Alternative To Timber Decking

Composite Decking: A Cost-Effective Alternative To Timber Decking
12/10/2017

Now the weather is starting to improve there will no doubt be a mad rush of people wanting to get their gardens summer ready. Timber decking looks great but can create some unnecessary hassles for both you and your client. If you’re looking for an alternative that won’t stretch the budget then consider composite decking.

It’s a great alternative for a lot of reasons. Amongst other great benefits, composite decking is a cost-effective way of building a deck. If you’ve ever had to deal with the annoyances of timber decking, here how composite is different:

Product costs are relatively low

The overall costs of composite decking can vary. Compared to the timber decking alternative of similar quality and service life, it does work out cheaper. At Champion Timber, we sell Megawood composite that starts at £14.20 a metre. We also stock Millboard’s authentic looking Enhanced Grain decking that costs £15.90 per metre.

Quick and easy to fit

Using composite decking is a great way to reduce time spent on site and subsequently cut down your labour costs. Millboard decking particularly, is fitted with unique fixings that means there’s no need for pre-drilling, counter sinking or clip fixings. All you have to do is screw in the fixings and the Lastane coating flexes back over them to conceal the head.

Ultra-low maintenance decking

Composite decking is incredibly low maintenance and requires very little up keep. It’s easy to clean and doesn’t rot or warp like timber. It’s also has anti-slip properties and all of our composite decks have a service life of at least 25 years.

Can achieve different looks

The intricate detailing on our Millboard composite decking can fool people into thinking it’s made from real wood. It has authentic grain patterns and provides a lovely textured look and feel. It’s available in four shades from coppered to smoked oak.

Our Megawood composite is reeded and ribbed and comes in natural brown or basalt grey. The solid colour profile is resistant to greying and doesn’t require oiling or painting.

You can order our composite decking here. Alternatively, please call us at your local branch with any questions and we’ll do our best to help.
