Eco-friendly decking solutions

TimberMax supplies WPC decking from EcoTech, and advises the following when caring for your decking:

  • There will be maintenance required regarding oily marks and general cleaning.
  • Customers often end up oiling the product.
  • The spacing between the substructure joists of a composite deck needs to be no more than 300mm.
  • If there is a major price difference between two different composite decking products one should consider that the cheaper product is probably not of the same quality as the more expensive option.
  • A lower quality composite decking poses a serious risk of disintegrating and crumbling after a relatively short period of time being exposed to the elements.
  • Composite decking is prone to shrinkage and expansion along the length of the decking boards and this often leads to gaps opening and closing between end-to-end joints.

If you keep the above-mentioned points in mind, you’ll ensure that your WPC decking lasts a long time and creates a beautiful and eco-friendly decking solution to extend your outdoor spaces.
