If you want a product which you don’t have to maintain, and will look the same all year round and one pick up any mould in the winter or fade in the summer then choose composite.
If you love the look of timber and don’t mind, the maintenance and your deck is in a well ventilated area which gets sunlight in the winter then you can also choose hardwood decking.
In most instances, there is almost no right or wrong answer to this question a lot of it will come down to personal preference,
however, in certain areas such as areas which are prone to mould in the winter not well ventilated and don’t receive enough sun then we would highly recommend composite.
This is a question we get asked all of the time, and the answer is it all depends on what brand of decking board, and what colour of decking board you use and the location of the deck
Certain cheaper brands, especially the ones which have hollow extrusions inside the boards in dark colours can get extremely hot in the summer, we do not recommend or install these brands
As a general rule, most of the composite we work with there is no significant difference in hits retention in the summer than with hardwood.
As a general rule, most of the composite we work with ( particularly in lighter colours ) there is no significant difference in heat retention in the summer than with hardwood decking or tiles
If you were in an area which is fully exposed to sun all day long in the summer, we would recommend you go for a lighter colour, not a darker colour.
We are often asked this question and, in most cases, it comes down to your own personal choice – the board that looks the most pleasing to you!
Most brands we supply & install work have a 25-year warranty and offer similar scratch – stain – fade – resistant properties.
