Wood vs composite decking?
To determine which type will work best for your lifestyle and budget we will compare wood and composite decking.
Wood decking is typically more budget-friendly than composite decking although we would always recommend going with a high-end wood, this will expand lifetime and minimise damage/chips or cracks.
Wood decking requires more maintenance than composite decking – we recommend to stain and seal every 3 years. Composite decking although virtually maintenance-free does still require cleaning, brushing regularly. Composite decking will fade over time if placed in direct sunlight – wood decking is much easier to bring back to life.
Ultimately there isn’t a huge difference between both apart from aesthetically – the deciding factor usually boils down to which one looks better to you. Composite decking comes in a range of colours which may suit your garden better.
