As you know, one of the many great benefits of composite decking is its fantastic slip-resistant properties, making it a perfect choice to use outdoors, especially surrounding pools and hot tubs. Over the years, we have seen several gorgeous outdoor areas created using a combination of composite decking around swimming pools, helping homeowners create not only a low-maintenance space but one that is safe for all guests, particularly when they are coming in and out of a pool! 

We are therefore extremely excited to share with you some incredible images of our latest swimming pool decking project in a home located in Penarth, South Wales. Here, the homeowner of this gorgeous property has opted to use our fantastic EasyClean FutureDek Silver Birch composite decking, an extremely popular choice amongst many people looking to redesign their outdoor space. You can see the journey of this project below: 

 

     

As you can see from the above images, the decking is starting to really take shape and is on course to bring this outdoor to life. Currently, the project is around 90% complete with only a few finishing touches left, but we can already tell that this is going to be a beauty! 

Our EasyClean FutureDek Silver Birch continues to be a popular choice for many outdoor living space redesigns as a result of its excellent long-lasting, low-maintenance qualities as well as offering a trendy and stylish flooring option that complements many outdoor designs.

If you're considering redesigning your outdoor living space with a new deck and are contemplating whether composite decking is worth the price, just remember one thing; you get what you pay for! 

Other deck options such as hardwood, softwood and plastic are readily available at affordable prices and are used among a large number of households up and down the country, but they are not without their drawbacks. The reason as to why composite decking is priced at the upper end of the scale is down to its superior manufacture and incredible low-maintenance properties, no doubt saving you more money over a longer-term compared to its cheaper counterparts. For this reason, it is important to view a composite deck as an investment rather than an expense. 

If, however, you are still not convinced, here we take a look at five reasons as to why we believe that composite decking is definitely worth the price. 

Is Composite Decking Worth the Price?

 

5 Reasons to Choose Composite Decking 

Low-Maintenance 

First and foremost, the most popular reason why homeowners choose to install composite decking in their outdoor living space is due to its unbelievable low-maintenance qualities. Unlike standard wood decking, composite decking never requires painting, staining or sealing. Saving you countless hours as well as hundreds of pounds on equipment. As a result of its manufacture, composite decking is also sun and water-resistant, meaning your deck will last for decades without rotting or warping. The only upkeep required is the occasional jet wash, meaning you will have more time to sit down, relax and enjoy our deck rather than cleaning it. 

 

Durability 

The second reason why we think composite decking is worth the price is because of its outstanding durability. As a result of its state-of-the-art manufacture, our composite deck boards boast the excellent low-maintenance qualities of plastic decking along with the stunning aesthetics of natural wood decking; the best of both worlds! Created using a mixture of natural hardwood and polymer resin, composite decking has the ability to withstand even the harshest of conditions, whereas traditional wood decking can become warped and full of splinters. All of our composite decking products come with a minimum warranty of 5 years and maximum of 30 years.

 

Safety

Another important and noteworthy reason why you should consider investing in composite decking is because of its resounding safety benefits. As mentioned above, its ingenious manufacture allows for a splinter-free finish, unlike traditional wood. This is ideal for households that contain young children and pets, allowing for a danger-free environment. Slip-resistant properties also make composite decking the perfect choice to use around swimming pools, hot tubs and spas. As well as not having to worry about maintaining your deck to look good, you can also not worry about any accidents or injuries occurring as a result of splitting deck boards or slips. 

 

Heat & Fade-Resistant 

Available in a range of styles and colours, composite decking proposes the perfect deck option for a variety of outdoor space designs. Even better, no matter which board type you choose to install, you can rest assured that it will look good for years to come. As a result of highly reflective pigments that are used to colour composite deck boards, the boards themselves are highly resistant to heat, meaning they are less prone to fading. Unlike traditional wood decking that fades and requires painting to look good, composite decking will look as good as new without any upkeep.

 

Add Value to Your Home

The final reason to add composite decking to your home is that it will significantly increase the value of your property. If by any chance you decide to sell your home at any point in the future, you can use your composite deck as an additional selling point. With its long-lasting and low-maintenance properties, it can be quite the pull to any potential buyers. Again, this reinforces the idea that a composite deck should be seen as an investment, rather than an expense. 

So, when it comes to whether composite decking is worth the price, we at DeckPlus absolutely believe that it is. The advantages that you are set to gain as a result of installing composite decking to your home far outweigh the disadvantages and with composite decking becoming ever more popular amongst homeowners in the UK, you wouldn't want to be left behind! 

If the price is still a hurdle for you, at DeckPlus we offer composite deck boards that suit a variety of budgets. So no matter what you have in mind for your outdoor space, we are confident that you can find exactly what you need right here! Click below to browse our full range of composite decking.

Tropical hardwood look decking

When you're shopping for outdoor flooring products, you can't beat the authenticity of 100% wood decking.

Or can you? Tropical hardwood decking is certainly attractive - few would deny that. But those beautiful boards have their downsides, and depending on your priorities, composite decking may be a far better bet for your outdoor space.

Back garden with decking

A lot of people have been stuck at home recently in accordance with the government's coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown rules. Those of us with gardens are still free to enjoy them - as long as we remain at least 2 metres from members of other households - but for the many people who don't have an outdoor space of their own, the past few months have been trying to say the least.

Not surprisingly, the lockdown blues appear to have prompted a significant shift in the UK's house-hunting priorities. New research from Rightmove suggests that gardens have become a key selling point - sellers are now being urged to show off their outdoor spaces in photos of their properties, while buyers are displaying an increased willingness to live away from city centres in return for a decent-sized garden.

 Composite decking in sunlight

It's lovely having a garden deck, but those boards warm up very quickly when the sun's out. You have to be careful walking on timber decking with bare feet - it can get surprisingly hot over the course of a summer day!

Fortunately, we at DeckPlus are conscious of these problems, and our composite decking is designed to resist heat and stay cool even during the hottest times of year.
