Composite Decking Vs Timber & Wood Decking

What is Composite Decking?

Composite decking boards (also known as WPC & plastic decking) are made using a mixture of wood fibres, reclaimed plastics and binding agents.
As one of the UK's biggest composite decking suppliers it is vital that the combination of ingredients produces an incredibly low-maintenance solution that is much more durable than that of wood decking alternatives.
The durable and low maintenance qualities of the composite decking options available on our website also come with long warranties of 20 years or more depending on the range you purchase. This is because composite decking has a higher protection against the British elements such as rain and UV ray damage.

How long does composite decking last?

Given the durable nature of our Clarity and Forma composite decking, customers can expect a lifespan of at least 20 years and 25 years respectively.

Customers can expect a longer lifespan if the decking is cleaned every few months throughout each year.
Even though Clarity and Forma ranges are simple to maintain, a little love and care will go a long way.

Which Composite Decking is Best For Me?

The two composite decking ranges available on our website are ideal for most properties throughout the UK although there are some subtle differences.

Our Clarity decking does not require much work to maintain, has great stain resistance and excels as an anti-slip board.
Our Forma boards are also easy to maintain, have improved stain resistance and has been designed to have a higher protection against UV rays which is why we offer a 25 warranty.

Are Composite Decking Boards Easy to Maintain?

Our composite boards are incredibly resistant and easy to maintain! Our selection of high quality wood/plastic composites, provide the durability of synthetic products with the malleability of wood. This leaves you with a product that is incredibly low-maintenance.

There is no need to paint, stain or seal however we do recommend a periodical clean either with a jet wash or light brush and hose.

We advise customers to consider that lighter colours may require a little more maintenance as surface dirt can be more visible.

What Should I choose, Hollow or Solid Composite decking?

We have the ability to produce both hollow and solid composite deck boards yet have opted for hollow.

This is because our boards have specially-engineered arched cavities resulting in a length that is not only 30% lighter than comparable solid decking, but also provides high strength and stiffness for high performance applications.


'Art, and nature even more, makes use of these in thousands of operations in which robustness is increased without adding weight, as is seen in the bones of birds and in many stalks that are light and very resistant to bending and breaking' 

Galileo Galilei on the resistance of hollow solids (1638).


Our composites achieve a greater strength-to-weight ratio, ensuring no drooping or bounce, so boards feel solid under foot as well as having a great look.

Honeycomb Stability


Unlike some solid decking, hollow decking materials do not warp. The manufactured stabilising core mimics that of a honeycomb, producing a stiffness not achieved by many solid boards. Honeycomb composites are used widely in many industries, from aerospace industries to packaging and logistics.

What are Ecoscape UK Composites Made Up of?

Our composites are 55% hardwood fibres (ethically sourced from from reclaimed materials) and 45% high density polyethylene (the plastic typically attained from plastic milk bottles).

Other ingredients include high quality colour pigment and bonding agents. Producing a product with all the workable qualities of wood whilst gaining the durability of synthetic materials that requires far less maintenance and has a much longer life span than timber decking.

What are the Main Advantages Compared to Real Wood Decking?

Our composite decking is environmentally innovative and
manufactured from recycled material.

Ecoscape materials contain no PVC and so is free from toxic ingredients that would normally leak out in to your garden or terrace.

Easy to maintain

Ecoscape decking is a low maintenance option for your home. There is no need for treatments such as painting, sanding, sealing etc. Just a yearly clean is recommended, either with a jet wash or light brush and hose, meaning the maintenance of your composite decking can easily fall in-line with yearly maintenance around the rest of your house and property.

Water Resistant, Hardwearing Surface

Ecoscape decking has a water resistant high-friction anti-slip surface making it a safe platform, in both wet and dry conditions.

The natural low moisture absorption means that it has a high resistance to decolouration, mould and especially warping. As it is a manufactured board, it is free from knots, twisting, splits and cracks usually encountered with timber decking.

Our splinter-free surface makes deck comfortable for bare feet and safe for small children. Also the deck is hardwearing, it can withstand heels, weight and moving of decking furniture and patio heaters.

Retaining colour


Unlike wood, the material used in Ecoscape composites contain less lignin, which is the component of wood that contributes to greying over time. This gives the composite material a much higher natural resistance to the "greying" process caused by exposure to ultra violet light.

Will the Colour of Ecoscape UK Composites Fade?

Independent testing has shown that Ecoscape UK composites have a significantly better colour stability than timer decking products and most comparable WPC decking products. Over time some fading may occur: this can be partially reversed with regular pressure hose cleaning.

How do Ecoscape UK Products React to Temperature Changes?

Like all wood-plastic composites, the Ecoscape collection will expand and contact consistently with changes in temperature.

The general recommendation is 3mm expansion gaps for decking boards is based on the assumption that after installation, the deck temperature may increase by as much as 30 degrees.

If the deck is built on a hot day, the main movement will be shrinkage, and smaller gaps should be left; smaller gaps may be left for shorter pieces.

Be sure to use Ecoscape T-Clips which allow for thermal expansion and contraction without buckling.
