As a specialist Decking centre we have made it our Job to stay on top of current market trends and changes.
Garden decking products
Up until the last two or three years the decking options available were limited to Wood, Wood and more wood however product availability has started to change primarily bought on by the introduction of Wood decking alternatives these generally come in the form of
- Composite Decking.
- PVC Decking.
- Plastic Polymer Decking.
So why is composite & PVC Decking becoming more popular.
- Aging population increasing demand for low maintenance decking products.
- Poor weather making it more difficult to treat conventional timber decking.
- Anti-slip or low slip resistance.
- Increase in the ranges available making the decking more aesthetically pleasing.
Overall I think that we will see demand for Plastic & Composite decking increasing however beware as with the increase in demand will come an increase in production of poor quality decking products.
The introduction into the market place of these new wooden decking alternatives reminds me very much of when we first started to come across “ Laminate Flooring “ with Various manufacturers from all over the world starting to produce laminate flooring. This however came with its own set of problems it quickly became apparent that a number of the floors that had been produced were not fit for purpose and issues were arising with regards to quality stability and lifespan of the product. I am hoping that this will not happen with the composite decking market.
With this in mind I have compiled a list of points to considder when deciding on the most suitable decking to Purchase
- How long has the Decking product been available.
- What guarantee is available with the Decking.
- Does the product expand and contract if so by how much.
- Ask for a copy of the fitting instructions.
- Ask to see a deck that has been fitted for over 3 years.
- Always ask to see displays of the decking.
- Ask for a sample of the decking.
- Are you using a repetable supplier.
