We all know how unpredictable the weather in the UK can be. One minute it’s pouring down with rain and gale-force winds, and the next it’s bright sunshine and warm temperatures.
This means that your garden furniture and decking has to go through a lot.
But, how weather resistant is composite decking?
Composite decking is our go-to material for creating aesthetic and functional outdoor spaces. Aside from looking great, it’s also one of the more durable materials that you can use for your outdoor flooring.
In this article, we’ll take you through everything you need to know about how weather-resistant composite decking is.
Is composite decking weather resistant?
The short answer is, yes! Composite decking is highly resistant to any extreme weather conditions it may go through – this is why we recommend the material so highly to our customers at.
When compared to common decking materials like wood, composite decking is far superior. It offers up to 20 years of guaranteed quality and service and is very easy to maintain.
You can get composite decking that’s UV resistant, meaning that even on the hottest days of the year you don’t have to worry about the colour of your outdoor flooring getting faded or bleached by the sun.
This material is also much better when used in wet, rainy climates (like the UK!). Unlike wood, composite flooring doesn’t soak up water and isn’t prone to freezing. It also doesn’t require sealing in Winter to prevent breaks and cracks.
Finally, you don’t have to worry about composite decking rotting like you would with wood decking. This is because composite flooring is capped with a protective layer that stops moisture from being able to damage the material.
How can you maintain your composite decking?
Although composite decking is extremely durable and long-lasting, there are a few things that you can do to keep it looking its best for longer.
It won’t take long either as this type of flooring is designed to be extra low maintenance.
Just give your decking a good sweep and wash when needed, and your outside space will be looking amazing for years to come.
