3 reasons to switch to composite decking

Beautiful decking area can completely transform your garden and extend when you can use it through the seasons. When it comes to building your decking, you can choose to work with a number of materials, which may include timber or composite decking options. The focus of this blog is to explore three key reasons why you should dump traditional timber decking variants and switch to composite decking


Our Composite Decking Offering

Here at Lawsons, we stock a variety of products from TREX - their composite decking is known for its durability and ease of maintenance. TREX decking is strong, durable, and has a natural grain look that won’t collect mould, scratches, or stains over time.

TREX decking has the benefits of both timber and plastic decking, without the draw backs. It is made from recycled timber and plastic, saving 400 million lbs of plastic and wood from landfills every year, making your decking incredibly eco-friendly. The decking boards are made from 95% recycled materials, but have a natural grain look that is very similar to timber.

Whilst composite decking is an excellent, low maintenance alternative to timber, read on below to find out why you should make the switch.


Get the Wood Effect Without the Hassle

One of the main reasons for switching to composite decking is because you are still able to achieve the wooden look without all the hassle of maintaining it. Yes, that’s correct, composite decking is extremely low maintenance and does not require quarterly painting, staining or sealing. It will remain in pristine condition for a very long time. Timber decking, on the other hand is known to rot, splinter, fade, warp and can get infested with insects. With composite decking, you don’t need to worry about any of those as it is made from a mixture of plastic and chemical additives.


Composite Decking and Elements

Composite decking is extremely durable and will withstand severe weather conditions. Our Trex decking is moisture resistant making it waterproof and will survive extreme rainfall and storms that the UK tends to have. This means you can be tension free about the condition of your composite decking all year round.


Composite Decking is Environmentally Friendly

The final reason why you should make the switch to composite decking is because Trex decking is green. The composite decking made from Trex is eco-friendly with a revolutionary blend of 95% reclaimed wood and plastic film, this includes recycled lumber, recycled plastic and recycled sawdust. Our trusted supplier Trex also use some of the most environmentally friendly manufacturing processes, so you can be rest assured that by switching to composite decking, you’re playing a part in supporting the environment.
