Composite decking boards can be used on new decking projects or to replace old, rotten and slippery wooden decking boards. The boards can be cut with standard woodworking tools and are held in place with retaining clips. Fascia boards and end caps are also available to provide the finishing touch.
Despite composite wood plastic being a relatively new product, it provides a high-quality alternative to traditional timber that looks and feels almost exactly like real wood. Composite Prime decking products such as HD Deck XS and HD Deck Dual are made using recycled plastics and FSC® wood flour which means a sustainable, ethical and environmentally-friendly product.
The benefits of composite decking are that its plastic ingredients mean it is far superior in durability, strength and maintenance over a timber product. Typically, timber is susceptible to damage over a period of time. Wood can be damaged by natural weathering such as rain, friction or wind, often causing potentially dangerous splinters to protrude from the material (which isn’t ideal when you have little ones running around outdoors). Composite materials however use plastic co-ingredients that create a much stronger product, meaning that you get a longer lifetime out of the material.
