How to Pick the Best Composite Decking

Selecting the best composite decking involves considering several critical factors to ensure that the product aligns with your specific needs and preferences.

Our research indicates that it's not just about aesthetics; factors like budget, durability, maintenance, and environmental conditions play a significant role.

Budget And Size Considerations

First, assess your budget and the size of the deck you plan to build. Composite decking, while more expensive initially than wood, offers longer life and lower maintenance costs, providing long-term value.

It is worth noting that investing in higher-quality boards (which are a part of the entire project cost), can pay back their premium over time by reducing maintenance efforts like sanding, staining, or resealing​​.

Material Composition

The base materials in composite decking vary, including mixtures of wood, PVC, vinyl, and recycled plastics. Each material reacts differently to environmental factors like UV rays, moisture, and temperature changes.

Our grey composite decking is manufactured from recycled materials, ensuring an eco-friendly choice that doesn't compromise on quality.

Environmental Factors

Think about your geographical location. Factors like proximity to saltwater, the intensity of the sun, local weather patterns, and temperature fluctuations can affect the performance and appearance of your decking.

Unless you choose our decking, which is built to withstand these conditions without significant wear and tear​​.

Design And Aesthetics

The design and aesthetics of composite decking play a pivotal role in enhancing the overall look and feel of your outdoor space. The colour, texture, and style choices available in composite decking can significantly impact the ambiance of your deck area.

Our findings show that textures are also important, particularly concerning safety; decks with pronounced textures offer better slip resistance (which is especially beneficial near pools).

How to Clean Composite Decking

Cleaning composite decking is a straightforward process that ensures the longevity and appearance of your deck. Here's a step-by-step guide to effectively clean your composite deck:

Prepare Your Deck

Begin by clearing everything off the deck, including furniture, grills, and potted plants. This makes it easier to reach every part of the deck. Sweep away dirt, debris, and any leaves or branches. Make sure you get into the corners and crevices.

It's also important to cover nearby plants or decorations to protect them from potential damage by cleaning products​​​​.

Mix The Cleaning Solution

Use a mild soap solution. Mix a gallon of warm water with 1/4 cup of liquid dish detergent. Based on our observations, this is strong enough to clean the textured grain of composite decking.

Apply The Cleaner And Scrub

Section off the deck and apply the cleaning solution to one area at a time to prevent it from drying before you can scrub. Use a medium-stiffness nylon bristle brush for composite materials and scrub in the direction of the grain, then against it, to remove all dirt and debris.

For tougher stains, you might need to scrub twice, paying extra attention to corners and edges​​.

Rinse Thoroughly

After scrubbing each section, rinse it thoroughly with clean water to ensure no residue is left. For the best results, soak up standing water with a towel or sponge mop.

Continue this process until the entire deck is cleaned, then allow the deck boards to air dry completely​​.

Commonly Asked Questions

Should I Buy Capped Or Uncapped Composite Decking?

Similar to hollow or solid composite decking, either option offers unique benefits: Capped composite decking boasts resistance to moisture, mould, mildew, and UV damage.

In contrast, uncapped composite decking is more budget-friendly upfront and offers several advantages, such as being durable and slip-resistant.

How Do You Install Composite Decking?

You can install composite decking using standard tools and techniques similar to wood decking. Pick a proper substructure, like our decking frame, use appropriate fasteners, and follow manufacturer guidelines for your specific decking type​​.
