What Are the Pros and Cons of Composite Decking?

What are the benefits of Composite Decking?

  • In comparison to timber decking solutions, composite decking is durable and long-lasting without the risk of warping or rotting. At Ecoscape, we offer a minimum 20-year residential warranty on our composite decking boards. 
  • Composite decking is easy to clean and doesn’t require any special maintenance such as sealing or treating, making it a low-maintenance option.
  • Composite decking is available in a variety of colours and styles, so you can find the perfect option for your home. At Ecoscape, we offer our Clarity Composite Decking Range in a choice of 5 colours and a reversible finish. Our Forma Composite Decking range is available in 6 colours and also has a dual-sided finish so you can choose between narrow, woodgrain grooves or wider grooves. 
  • Composite decking is an environmentally-friendly alternative to wood decking. Our Ecoscape composite decking is made from ethically-sourced, recycled plastics and reclaimed FSC certified wood fibres. 
  • Composite decking is easy to install, especially with our Ecoscape easy installation guide. Any individual fixings or composite decking boards can also be easily removed and replaced. 

What Are the Disadvantages of Composite Decking?

  • Composite decking can be more expensive than other decking materials. However, in terms of value for money, composite decking solutions are a worthy investment and likely to last longer than traditional timber decking with very little maintenance.
