Which Composite Decking should I choose?
There are so many composite deckings to choose from in Australia right now.
How do you know which composite deck to choose? Isn’t it all just plastic decking?
Full disclosure here, at Demak Timber & Hardware we stock and recommend the number 1 selling composite deck in the world, Trex Transcend Decking. We also stock Modwood which is an Australian made uncapped WPC decking. (Made from recycled milk bottles and sawdust.)
Other brands that we can supply by special order include Millboard, Timbertech, Azek and Nexgen / Fiberon.
(Please note, we do not stock any of the following; Newtechwood, Britedeck, Duralife or Futurewood)
But the question you are asking yourself is, “What is the best composite decking in Australia?”
We have compiled this composite decking review so you can compare the difference and make up your own mind.
Still unsure what decking to use? Here is some advice to help you on your way.
Step 1. Collect as many samples as you like.
Step 2. Anything with a hollow core, throw it in the bin.
Step 3. Perform your own scratch and durability tests. (does the edge of the cap chip away under your fingernail?)
Step 4. Spill some red wine and bbq fat on them and see how easy they are to clean after 48 hours.
Step 5. Are BAL and Slip ratings important to you? Ask to see the written reports. If the testing was not conducted by Australian testers, throw the samples in the bin.
Step 6. Call Demak Timber to discuss your findings. (We love chatting about this stuff…)
We do not recommend using any composite decking with a hollow core
Trex = Tougher Decking Just a few years ago, most manufactured decking was “composite,” typically a combination of wood fibers and polymers🛠 Composite was a big improvement over wood. Premium Trex Composite decking offers something even better: “capped” or “shelled” decking 👇 Trex’s core is covered with a layer of denser, tougher poly material which means resistance to scratches, stains and fading 🌞 #trex #decking #trexdecking #deckingsolutions #compositedecking #deck #trexaustralia
