What is the best composite decking – and is it as good as wood?
There’s no denying, natural wood is beautiful. Unfortunately, it has serious drawbacks as decking. We’ve probably all seen decks where the wood has split and warped, and where even its natural good looks have been marred by a coating of algae. Keeping a wooden deck clear of these problems takes a lot of maintenance. Even then it’s really only delaying the inevitable. Wood’s numerous drawbacks have led to the development of decking made from man-made composite materials. But that then begs the question: which composite decking makes the best composite decking?
Answering that question was what drove Millboard’s development. We wanted to create decking that had all the visual appeal of natural wood, but wouldn’t rot, warp or split, and would need only minimal maintenance.
The result is a truly unique product which we believe is the best composite decking money can buy. Unlike other composites, Millboard decking is hand moulded and contains no wood content at all, so avoids all the problems associated with wood. Instead, it is made from a unique resin/stone composite material, with the addition of a unique Lastane® non-porous surface that provides superb grip, even when wet. This special surface also resists algal growth and staining – food and drink spills can simply be wiped clean.
Great performance, great looks
Our decking’s high performance is matched by its looks. Although there is no wood content at all, it has an astonishing resemblance to natural timber – most people seeing it assume it is natural timber. This authentic look is achieved by the unique way our decking is created. Each piece is formed in moulds taken from meticulously sourced natural timbers, then hand-tinted by our craftsman for a perfect, real-wood look.
