Plastic Decking, which composite deck should I use?
There are many different plastic or composite decking products available in the UK, all colours shapes, lengths, thicknesses and textures. It is up to the end user which suits their needs best, cost and aesthetics seem to be the driving factors although longevity and performance should also be considered. We use Millboard Composite Decking and Exterpark Tech Composite Decking.
Fake Timber Composite Decking.
Millboard are certainly the market leaders here, great colours and several patterned finishes; Enhanced Grain and Weathered Oak are their best sellers, they certainly look the part.
Assuming the end user prefers a smoother finished decking board and with 4 colours to choose from, Enhanced Grain would be best suited. The majority of domestic gardens, restaurants and public places use Enhanced Grain Millboard decking.
If a more rustic and aged look is required then there is no other deck that compares to Weathered Oak, available in 2 colours. This composite decking product is best suited to cottage gardens, woodland walks and riverside projects, the rustic charm and real likeness is incredible.
Millboard offers a 25 warranty for domestic use.
Contemporary Composite Decking.
Exterpark Tech is a wood plastic composite decking well suited for a slick and modern decking project. The deck boards have a side fixing system that cannot be seen once installed making it a very unique and clever product. The colours are rather striking too, contemporary and bold – who else has white decking?
So for terraces, balconies, rooftops and projects that requires a slick and contemporary dynamic this should certainly be a consideration.
Smooth decking boards are “In”, grooved boards are a thing of the past….. They just don’t look that groovey.
Exterpark Tech has a 5 year warranty.
Cheap Composite Decking.
The best composite decking products are most certainly sold by reputable companies that provide warranties to back up the product. There is no such thing cheapest, whilst you do get what you pay for, why pay twice or have a product that only has a short life span…
Then again there is timber decking…
