Timber – This material possess a natural beauty that many believe is unrivalled. Its appearance plays an incredibly complementary role in today’s highly industrial environment.

Timber – A timber deck will last the lifetime of you home if it is properly maintained!
Composite – Composite decking is extremely weather resistant and renowned for being hardwearing. It does not crack, split or splinter. Furthermore it is resistant to rot and insect infestation too.
Timber – Timber is a renewable resource. It has been argued that the process of harvesting, milling and transporting timber is more efficient than the process of manufacturing composite decking.
Composite – A combination of timber fibres and plastic is used to make composite decking. Those who manufacture composite decking materials have claimed that it actually is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional timber decking. This is because instead of harvesting plantation or rainforest trees, other timber by-products such as sawdust are used instead. It is a little known fact that all or some of the plastic used in manufacturing composite decking comes from recycled plastics as well!
