    Can Composite Decking Withstand British Weather?

    *DeckPlus tell us more about their composite decking and its benefits*  If you’re a Brit installing gardens, you’ll want to make sure the garden features you’re installing can cope with the temperamental British weather. From scorching summers to torrential downpours, we often go from one extreme to another in a short space of time. One problem with traditional timber decking is that it doesn’t cope very well with the challenges of British weather. When wood takes on water it can become swollen and bowed, when it freezes it can crack and splinter, and in bright, direct sunlight it can become…

    The benefits of composite decking

    Composite decking is growing in popularity. Maybe because it’s more durable than wood decking, as well as a great low-maintenance alternative to wood.   Unlike wood, composite decking doesn’t need frequent staining, oiling or moisture prevention damage and rotting. This makes it the less time-consuming option.   However, whilst composite decking offers low-maintenance benefits, in some instances, it can look artificial. But Millboard decking is different. Due to the unique way it’s engineered, Millboard decking looks remarkably like the real thing, yet out-performs it in every way.   Inspired by the innate beauty of nature, it’s been hand-moulded from original…
