What is Composite Timber?

Superior Composite Decking Supplies

Composite timber is a wood-plastic mix that is hard-wearing in a multitude of climates and environments. A mix of wood fibres, plastics and bonding agents are heated and formed into boards and planks. The result is a long-lasting and maintenance-free alternative to traditional wood.

Currently, there are 2 types of composite decking:  Capped and Uncapped.

Uncapped: These boards tend to be cheaper. They are durable and hard-wearing but don’t have the same protection against staining, fading and scratching. This results in a small amount of colour fade as residual wood oils and tannins are exposed to the environment.

Capped: These boards have an exterior plastic coating and are highly resistant to fading, staining and scratching. Capped composite decking is hassle-free and easy to clean.

Make The Right Choice For You

Traditional vs Composite Decking Timber

When it comes to construction materials, our customers are spoilt for choice. Not only is there a wide range of the highest quality timber species to choose from, but also have a variety of eco timber materials as well.

Traditional timber has been a popular choice for construction projects for many years, however as the world moves towards eco consciousness, the need for sustainable building materials have risen.  Despite timber being the traditional option, it hasn’t always been the most practical and affordable one. With composite decking timber offering less maintenance and higher durability, it is easy to see why this question exists.
