Choosing the Right Decking Material

People who plan on a decking project usually ask which decking material is the best option, and this will depend on several factors. To properly answer this, you must consider and assess the factors such as the available size, design and features you want to incorporate.
To arrive at a decision, it is crucial that you know the characteristics and qualities of each material. For instance, timber wood has its own qualities that are different from that of composite boards.

Timber Decking

Timber decking is known for its warm and natural look. Timber wood can be made more durable and long-lasting with the proper treatments. At Chelmsford Decking Builders, we have all the right equipment and skills to perform the best treatment and installation. The two common types of timber decking board are softwood and hardwood, and each of which has its own features.

Softwood Decking

Softwoods have gained popularity for homeowners. To protect them from rot and mould, it usually undergoes treatments. At Chelmsford Decking Builders, we have softwood decking boards that are fully compatible with Q-Grip Strips or slip-resistant inserts. Since these woods come from trees that grow fast, they are considered environmentally friendly.

To know more about softwoods, you must be aware that even if they are durable, they are not as good as hardwood’s strength durability. Below are more facts that you should know about softwoods:

  • The cheapest option;
  • Easy to handle and install;
  • Versatile well with almost any designs;
  • Low in density; hence, less durability;
  • Short-term solution only; and
  • Not recommended for high-traffic areas.

Hardwood Decking

Hardwood comes from slow-growing trees that give them a harder core and exterior. It also comes in different colors and finishes which make a versatile choice. It is a trustworthy and high-performing material.

Invest with Chelmsford Decking Builders for your hardwood needs. We only get supplies from sustainable sources. Also, our hardwoods are processed properly so that they are made even more durable. Below are facts that you need to know about hardwood:

  • Stronger than most deck boards;
  • Resistant to cracks, mould and rot;
  • More difficult to handle and install;
  • More expensive than other deck boards;
  • Requires more maintenance; and
  • Harder to grow and process.

Composite Decking

Composite decks come from combining wood fibres and recycled plastics which make them a unique option. This mixture provides them durability features that are more beneficial than other decking materials. They are smarter and safer alternatives for timber decking.

On top of that, it is resistant to scratches, mould, fading and rot. With the proper treatments, the longevity of composite deck woods can be increased up to 30 years or beyond that.
Composite decking, however, doesn’t have that natural look and feel that timber decks possess.

Below are more facts that you need to know about composite decking:

  • Safer surface to walk on;
  • Less maintenance;
  •  Costs more than timber decking boards;
  • Prone to fading ; and
  • More difficult to install.

Our services at Chelmsford Decking Builders for alternative-wood decking installation are top notch. If you still lack a formal plan, our team can help you come up with one. Our composite decking boards are free from cracks, insects and splinters.
