Composite decking is the modern alternative to wood decking, the advantage being that it does not rot or warp and is virtually maintenance-free. WPC decking (Wood Plastic Composite) is made from wood fibre, some form of plastic and a binding agent, so the result is denser, harder and heavier than wood alone. This means that there is no danger of splinters and, since the composite will not host the growth of algae, it is anti-slip even in the wet. With no health and safety issues, this makes it ideally suited to use in commercial and public areas as well for private decks.
Composite planks look like wood and they can be worked like wood, but unlike wood they do not need to be protected from water ingress which makes them naturally more suited to outdoor use. They will last longer than wood and do not require staining or painting at any time throughout their life.
Composite deck boards from Havwoods
At Havwoods we are passionate about wood, but when it comes to decking we reserve our passion for the composite products we show here. We have scoured the world for those which both satisfy our standards and fulfil your needs, so all are particularly strong and stable with a solid construction - very important - and they are both fade- and stain-resistant. They come in a range of the colours which are ideally suited to contemporary landscaping, offering a number of shades of brown as well as grey decking. And, just as important, they are from highly ethical European and North American companies with superior ecological credentials.
Installing and maintaining your deck
All of our boards are easy to install. They can be machined with standard woodworking tools and comprehensive installation instructions are available on request. We also stock a complete range of accessories, including ribbed and bullnose step edges, fascia boards and stainless steel fixings.
Maintenance couldn't be simpler. Simply wash Trekker occasionally with clean water; any stubborn stains may be lightly sanded
We also carry a small collection of composite cladding to complement our Trekker collection of decking boards.
