This can include anti-mould, UV protection and insect repellent to keep the composite decking boards maintenance free. 4th Generation decking like the Royale Range has a layer of capping to protect even further against wear and tear.
Co extrusion decking
Co-extrusion is the latest technology in the WPC industry. The composite board uses unique co-extrusion formulas for complete coverage. This protects the WPC decking, enhancing scratch, stain, and waterproof resistance.

Size of the deck: Measure the deck area and plan which direction you want the boards to run. The size of this length should indicate the length of board to be most efficient to the deck layout. This means you would need less boards and in turn less labour involved.
Warranty: What is the warranty length offered for your composite decking boards and what does it cover.
