Composite decking is an alternative to timber decking and has become popular for a number of good reasons. Because of its high flexibility you will see it used for decking in both coastal and inland residential homes, as well as commercial and public spaces such as roof terraces, balconies, rainforest retreats, jetties, and boardwalks.
Composite decking is usually made from recycled timber fibres, recycled plastics, natural minerals, and polymer resins, bringing several advantages over the alternatives:
- It’s ready to use
Composite decking is ready to use as delivered. There is generally no need to stain, sand, or paint the material before installation; you receive the finished product delivered to your door, ready to go.
- It’s cheaper in the long run
Once installed, composite decking is very low maintenance. It requires little in the way of re-staining or protection from the weather or pests. This makes it a cheaper (and more hassle-free) solution in the long run.
- It’s environmentally-friendly
New Wave’s composite decking uses toxic-free chemicals, recycled wood fibres, and recycled plastics, making it a sustainable and environmentally-friendly solution for both public and private outdoor areas.
The plant and polymer fibre blend of composite decking is extremely durable and hard wearing, even in Australia’s harsh climate. Longevity is guaranteed and New Wave Flooring backs this up with long warranties.
The wood-plastic composite decks are splinter-free and slip-resistant, making outdoor areas a little safer for bare feet, small children, and pets.
