Timbertech Decking

There are many options when it comes to decking and one option includes composite decking such as Timbertech.

What is Timbertech Decking?

Timbertech decking is a type of composite decking. It is a manufactured substance that stands up to the elements of the outdoors better than that of a natural wood deck.

Composite Decking

Composite decking uses a mixture of wood flour and plastic (usually a 50/50 ratio) to create a low maintenance decking material. Composite decking comes in a variety of colors and has a look similar to real wood. Timbertech’s composite decking has six different products to choose from. Each vary based on price, durability and color choice.

Advantages of Composite Decking

There are many advantages to owning a deck made of composite materials which is why it is so popular among homeowners.

Longevity: composite decking lasts a long time compared to wood decks. Wood is susceptible to the outdoor elements such as sun, wind, snow and rain. The weather can leave wood decks faded and worn. Composite decking resists the elements increasing its longevity.

Durability: composite decking resists not only fading and wear, but scratches, splintering and chipping as well. Composite material is made to be durable and to maintain its appearance for years to come. Composite decking is also stain resistant and easy to clean.

Low Maintenance:
composite decking does not need to be painted or sealed like traditional wood decks. Cleaning is also a breeze as they can be hosed off or cleaned easily with soap and water. Composite decking is resistant to mold and mildew as well and with regular cleaning can be kept looking brand new.

Adds Value: decks add value to your home. Decks offer not only a nice aesthetic, but a charming place for entertaining, relaxing or cooking outside. Homes with decks are more sought after and can be sold at a higher price.

Safety: because composite decks are durable and don’t splinter or warp, this provides added safety. Also some types have slip resistant surfaces for added safety and security.

Peace of Mind: because composite decking comes with a warranty, you can rest assure that your deck will be protected if it were to fade or stain.
