What materials can my decked area be constructed from:
- Composite – Composite deck boards are a man-made product that includes an approximately equal mix of recycled wood fibers and recycled plastic. The advantages of composite products are that they are durable and impervious to rot, they have a much longer lifespan than wooden. There’s also a huge range of colours and styles of composite decking for you to choose from, here are a few examples.
- Hardwoods – Cedarwood, Tiger Wood, Ipe, Teak, Cumaru – Generally speaking, timber is split into two main types: hardwood and softwood. Hardwood timber, which is used for hardwood decking is sourced from slow-growing trees. Hardwoods are stunning to look, feel fabulous underfoot, smell divine and always, always create a stunning hardwood decked area. Hardwoods are expensive however the results speak for themselves. You can’t beat the look, texture, and smell of a hardwood decking area.
- Softwood timber – Softwood comes from faster growing, evergreen or coniferous trees such as Pine trees. Although softwood is a cheaper, more economical decking solution, if you are investing in your garden for the long term then you really ought to use hardwood timbers. This will prove far more economical in the long term. Although softwood will look great when you first install it, it will typically start to show real signs of decay after a couple of years. Hardwood timbers, on the other hand, with a bit of maintenance, will last you for many years to come. Some varieties will even start to look better as they age.
