    What else to consider There are also some things that you should consider when deciding upon the material, structure and size of your deck. For instance:
    • Will your deck be in a location with strong sun or shading? – If your decking will be in the line of direct sunlight, chances are it will absorb more heat and the colour will fade faster. For this reason, consider choosing a lighter coloured composite decking that won’t hold in the heat. You might also consider installing a pergola over it or an awning.
    • What is the average temperature of your location? – Alternatively, if location is really cold you might want to opt for a darker colour to hold in more heat in the wood. It is also important to mention this to the experts behind the construction and installation of your deck in case extra advice is required in selecting the right composite decking blend for you.
    • Do you get a lot of rain or snow? – If your area is likely to get wet, and often, it will probably be good to steer clear from smooth surfaced composite decking that can be slippery once it becomes wet.
    • What other amenities do you want in your deck? – It can be easy to think of a deck as just a flat raised surface, but there is so much you can achieve by using a deck in Liverpool as part of a design tool. You could build up steps with the deck, or install some into the side, or have a cut out section for a fountain, hot tub or pool.

Once installed it provides you a strong wood looking deck that is resistant to warp, rot, mould, fading and scratches. Composite decking is made from a mixture of wood fibre, plastic and binding agents. It is a material that is denser, heavier and stronger than natural wood alone. This strength also means that they can last much longer than softwood.

    1. Debris and dirt carry mould and fungi to your deck if not cleaned and looked after
    2. Ice or snow in the winter season
    3. Old age of the deck
