History of Composite Decking

The use of composite lumber to create beautiful and stylish garden decking is a relatively new concept, with the advent of using composite materials to mould functional and stylish decking only occurring in the 1990s. Since then, it has revolutionised the way in which both businesses and individuals can style their outdoor space.

Composite decking combines plastic resin with wood fibre to create a much more durable material with which to create a long lasting outdoor space. This material is ideal for homes and gardens, offering a low maintenance alternative to traditional materials and saving you money as a result.
