The benefits of composite decking

It’s decking season once more – people are looking out their backdoors and realising their landscaping could do with a bit of a tidy up. But when decking your outdoor space, what material should you use?

There are, as with anything, an inordinate amount of options out there, but in this article, we’ll be giving you a quick briefing on the benefits of composite decking.

So, let’s take a look at the key reasons composite decking is so popular.

Weather resistance

Composite decking is engineered to withstand the effects of weathering and doesn’t warp after exposure to too much rain, so you can rest assured it will have a longer shelf life. Particularly helpful if you live somewhere that rains more often than usual.

Whilst other decking can also become weather resistant, it takes a little bit more time and maintenance, so if you’re looking for a quicker solution, composite decking is a failsafe option.


When it comes to maintaining decking, there’s no better material than Dura Deck Resist. Designed with premium performance and looks in mind, the Resist boards are manufactured by advanced co-extrusion technology, with a highly engineered protective 360-degree outer armour.

This means that there’s no sanding or varnishing needed. The material is mould resistant, and it’s designed to achieve the most natural wood look on the market. It’s all the benefits of a standard timber, with some unique additions!

It is however a slightly more expensive option, so if you’re looking for something a bit more affordable, take a look at our other brilliant, softwood, hardwood and composite options.

A friend to the environment

If you know you’re purchasing your timber from a verifiable company, then you can rest assured that any decking you choose is going to be environmentally friendly. Some great benefits of composite however include Dura Deck’s 87% recycled materials make-up and 100% FSC Certification, and Dura Deck Eco’s unique formula engineered to the highest standard WPC technology, reaching the highest standard for wood plastic composite in the world.
