Which Composite Decking should i choose ?

We have now started delivering Composite & PVC Decking products to Cardiff, Bridgend and all over South Wales.

In the last 10 years we have noticed a number of changes in the Low maintenance Decking ranges that are available along with changes in their durability and performance.

Composite Decking 10 years ago as opposed to today has come on a lot. Hollow composite decking was primarily what use to be the composite decking of choice in the early 2000.

Our View of What Maintenance free decking to purchase ?

In our opinion the way to go with Decking, taking into consideration cost and functionality  is to use a PVC Decking product.

Budget no issue

If however budget is not an issue then there is composite Decking product called Millboard available on the market  that is beautiful and is also Warrantied for 25 Years.  However Millboard decking comes at a cost.
