Real wood decking is beautiful. With its natural knots and grains, it can really change the look of an outdoor space. But how does it match up to composite decking?
With wood being a naturally formed material, this means it requires a high level of maintenance. It can quickly become weathered, become slippery when wet and pose other issues such as rotting, fading and absorbing stains.
During the winter months, fungus often meets wet wood. The tannin in the timber reacts and forms a horrible black stain. This is often a sign you’re heading for rotten decking, and can damage the timber beyond repair. Natural wood can also fade and warp – leading to additional future costs on replacing or repairing some or all of your decking.
So why is our Enhanced Grain Composite Decking as good as wood?
In our opinion, it’s even better!
Our Enhanced Grain collection is moulded from selected real wood timber. This enables us to make this range of Millboard look just like the real thing – utilising the style and design that you can only find in natural wood.
The natural design is then teamed up with all of the exceptional benefits that Millboard provides.
Millboard composite decking is designed to specifically withstand outdoors elements – whether that’s good or bad weather, rain or shine. The Lastane® surface layer not only provides a high resistance to UV light, but also provides an anti-slip surface – even when wet.
As Millboard Composite Decking is made from a unique polyurethane resin blend, this non-pourous material resists any kind of moisture, algae, stains, mould or impact.
The features of Millboard combined provide the benefits of safety and cost saving, without the need to maintain the decking as you would do with real wood. And with our Enhanced Grain Composite Decking, visually it looks just as (if not better) than the real wood.
