Composite decking has become a massively popular option for outdoor spaces in recent years, and it's easy to see why. Composite decking is famously durable and low maintenance; unlike traditional wood decking, it's resistant to rot, damp, warping, and can be cleaned with a simple warm jet wash. Furthermore, it doesn't need to be treated with harsh chemicals, and it's more environmentally friendly than both traditional wood and PVC plastic decking.
For all of these reasons, composite decking is in great demand these days. Choosing deck boards for your garden can be pretty exciting, but actually installing your decking can be a challenging process, especially if you don't have a lot of hands-on experience.
