Everything You Need to Know About Composite Decking
Are you looking for a durable and low-maintenance decking material? Look no further than composite decking! Made from a combination of wood fibres and plastic, composite decking offers the best of both worlds: the natural look of wood with the durability and weather-resistance of plastic.
In this blog post, we'll cover everything you need to know about composite decking, from its benefits to installation tips.
Benefits of Composite Decking
Low maintenance: Unlike traditional wood decks that require regular staining or sealing, composite decks only need occasional cleaning with soap and water.
Durability: Composite decking is resistant to rot, mould, insects, and fading from UV rays. It also won't splinter or warp like wood.
Sustainability: Many composite decking brands use recycled materials in their products, making it an eco-friendly choice.
Aesthetics: With a wide range of colours and textures available, you can find a composite deck that matches your home's style.
How to Install Composite Decking
Plan your deck: Determine the size and shape of your deck and create a detailed plan before starting construction.
Prepare the site: Clear any vegetation or debris from the area where your deck will be built. Level the ground if necessary.
Install framing: Build a substructure using pressure-treated lumber to support your deck boards.
Lay down deck boards: Start at one end of the deck and work your way across, using hidden fasteners or screws to attach each board securely.
Add finishing touches: Install railings, stairs, lighting, and other accessories as desired.
Tips for Maintaining Your Composite Deck
While composite decking is low-maintenance compared to wood decks, there are still some steps you can take to keep it looking great:
Clean regularly with soap and water or a specialized deck cleaner.
Remove stains promptly with a mild detergent or stain remover recommended by the manufacturer.
Avoid using harsh chemicals or pressure washers on your deck boards.
Keep furniture legs on coasters or furniture pads to prevent scratches.
Composite decking is an excellent choice for homeowners who want a beautiful and long-lasting outdoor living space without all the upkeep required by traditional wood decks. With proper installation and maintenance, your composite deck can provide years of enjoyment for you and your family.
