Additionally, these state-of-the art composites have been crafted specifically for durability against the UK’s ever changing weather conditions.

The Benefits of Using Composite Decking

  • Minimal Maintenance - Composite decking is renowned for its longevity and low-maintenance needs. Unlike wood, it won't break down or rot over time so you can forget about having to restain or repaint your outdoor area; all that's required is the occasional hosing down or power washing!
  • Environmentally Friendly - Composite decks are a great choice for the environmentally conscious! As most of them contain recycled or scrap materials, there is minimal environmental impact - much less than with traditional wood decks that use up considerable timber.
  • No Splinters - You can confidently traverse composite decking sans shoes, without any dread of splinters! This comes as a blessing for you, your children and even the family pet.
  • Cost Efficient - When it comes to installation costs, composite decks are actually more economical in the long term. Composite decking might initially appear pricy as a one-time buy, yet when you factor in its durability and lack of maintenance required - it is really a money saver!

Frequently Asked Composite Decking Questions

Can I Sand or Stain Composite Decking?

Unfortunately, due to the makeup of composite boards, you won't be able to sand or stain them.

If you're looking to regularly alter the colour and design of your deck, then timber decking is certainly your best bet. You can sand, stain and even paint it to suit your personal preferences - something that simply isn't possible with composite decking materials.

Where Should I Apply Decking?

Quality decking is a great way to turn quiet corners of your garden into their very own private oasis. Decking is especially well-suited for sloped sites - helping to create a sturdy level surface upon which you extend your living space. Be it potted plants or furniture, decking can hold it.

Plus, decking is perfect for pool or spa side areas - and can even include slip resistance measures if needed.

Is There Such A Thing As Stain Resistant Composite Decking?

Our classic range of traditional composite decking consists of more wood-based fibers than they do plastic, making them vulnerable to staining. If you ever have the misfortune to find a spot stain on your composite deck, we’ve put together some helpful tips for lifting it quickly and easily.

  • Start by lightly scrubbing your deck with warm soapy water and a soft-bristled brush for the best results. To avoid damaging your deck, steer clear of using scouring pads or hard bristles brushes - you don't want to scratch the surface!
  • If you wish, you can also use a pressure washer; however, it is critical to never exceed 3100 psi. You should always keep the lance at least 20 cm away from affected areas and use the fan attachment for an even spread of water in order to minimise potential damage. When using a pressure washer on deck boards, make sure not to concentrate too much force in one single area as this could lead to splintering.

What Composite Decking Accessories Should I Use?

For the strongest and most secure composite decking fixings, Hidden Fixing Clips are your best option. Their carefully contrived design allows them to fit neatly into grooves located on the surface of each board for maximum security.

Starter Clips, FastClips and colour-matched screws are the perfect answer to composite decking fixing systems - offering a well-thought-out solution for composite boards' installation.

Furthermore, when you buy fixing clips manufactured from top-quality stainless steel, you can rest assured that they will be as durable as the boards themselves.

Does Garden Decking Require Planning Permission?

Probably not. Most decking projects are usually classified as "permitted development," which means they don't require special planning permission.

You are allowed to build a raised platform in your garden without needing planning permission as long as:

  • The decking is no more than 30cm above the ground
  • The decking does not cover more than 50% of the total garden area
