Composite decking gives you the classic wood look without the added maintenance responsibilities. Composite decking is an excellent solution for those who are looking for a low-maintenance alternative to wood decking as it is made from a wood-plastic composite rather than wood alone. This means that you don’t have to re-stain your outdoor decking over the years.

Composite Decking Boards vs Wood Decking Boards

If you’re looking to expand your living space, installing decking boards in your outdoor space is an excellent way to achieve this goal. However, with all the options available, ranging from wood decking boards to plastic decking, it can be difficult to decide which is the right solution for you and your home. 

To help you with your decision, we’ve broken down the key features of composite decking boards and wood decking boards below:

Composite Decking Prices South Africa

The price of purchasing and installing composite decking boards can cost anything from R 1,600 per metre squared to R 2,500 per metre squared, depending on the size of your deck and the labour required to install it. 

However, it’s important to remember that your decking will last for at least 25 years, therefore, each year you keep your new decking the more value you receive for your investment.
