The Benefits of Using Composite Decking

A beautiful, functional deck is a great addition to your home. It enhances your living space and adds value to your investment. There are various options for decking, and while timber will always remain a popular choice, composite decking is fast becoming the foremost timber alternative in the Australian and NZ markets. In many ways, it is a superior option for decking applications.

What is Composite Decking?

Composite decking is a manufactured building product that mimics the look and feel of natural timber. It is crafted from a mix of natural wood fibres (sourced from wood waste), plastics, and bonding agents. This mix is heated and formed into boards, then cooled, resulting in an authentic wood-look decking product that requires very little care or maintenance. Composite decking has evolved dramatically from when it was first introduced to the market in the 1990s; it now looks much more natural and is very comparable to the look and feel of natural timber decking. Here at Outdure, our flagship composite decking product is ResortDeck. This product includes UltraShield, a co-extruded polymer that encapsulates each board to make it moisture-proof. The result is a superior product that is unmatched and is almost impossible to discern from natural timber. Unlike natural timber, composite decking will not rot, splinter, is scratch and fade resistant, and it is not at risk from termites and other pests.
