Flooring: Shopping, Installing, Maintaining, Cleaning and More

One hundred years ago, floors consisted of hardwoods, luxurious wool rugs or the occasional tile arrangement, and in some cases, floors during that era were still dirt. In just three or four generations, we've come a long way. Now you can find tile made of materials quarried from around the world. You can opt for rugs or wall-to-wall carpet made from everything from wool to synthetic fibers to bamboo. In addition, there's polished concrete, vinyl tile that can mimic almost any look or material, and a range of other options. With so much to choose from, it's important to do your research, and this blog is designed to help. I hope you enjoy my posts!

4 Desirable Qualities of Composite Timber Decking

Are you looking for a natural wooden theme for your house but not the disadvantages that come with it? If so, consider composite timber decking. As a durable, harmonious and natural decking solution, it's a perfect way to enhance your garden, patio or terrace. Having a higher percentage of wood, composite timber decking gives your yard a natural wooden theme but does not have side effects that come with natural wood, since it is polyethylene based. Below are desirable qualities of composite timber decking.

1. Low Maintenance and Cost Effective. Natural timber decking needs to be painted or polished with a good varnish for protection against various elements such as water, insects and moisture. However, you're able to install composite timber decking without any further polishing or paint. Composite timber decks are delivered polished and protected from all these components. With time, composite timber decking won't fade or warp and split due to the changing weather conditions. This means you don't need to frequently scrub and re-polish your deck or replace some sections, as they look good for a long time. Just like natural timber, composite timber decking is easily and quickly installed.

2. Highly Durable. Composite timber decking is resistant to mould, scratches, staining, fading, rotting or warping. This gives it a longer lifespan, as compared to other decking solutions.  Also, it is resistant to insect infestations and splinters, making it ideal for families with small pets and children.

3. Aesthetically Appealing. With its rich wood-grain patterns, high-definition colours and composite finishes, composite timber decking offers a natural wooden and aesthetic appeal to your yard, garden or patio. With different colours ranging from earthy red to cool grey, you're able to get a theme that suits your needs. In addition, composite timber offers a variety of designs for your rails, garden gates and pergolas, to match your already existing theme.

4. Environmental Friendly. Composite timber decking is made using recyclable components such as wooden scraps and recycled plastics. This means that apart from saving the natural forests, you're able to limit the amount of waste going into the environment. Also, composite timber decking doesn't need regular chemical treatments, which spill into the environment with time, as they are treated using eco-friendly solutions in the factory.

Composite timber decking is an all-weather, natural-looking and durable decking solution for your garden or patios. Contact your preferred specialist for more information on timber decking pricing, instalment, repairs and maintenance.
