What Is the Importance of Premium Decking?


When building outside structures such as decks or walkways, using premium composite decking is the key to creating long-lasting structures that are easy to maintain and look good. Over the years, composite decking has become a popular choice for residential and commercial products, and for good reason.

Find out why investing in premium composite decking is important and why you should buy your decking from BM Steel.




Premium composite decking is a contemporary decking material made from recycled plastic and wood fibres. This cutting-edge composite has the appearance of wood with the added benefit of outstanding durability and little maintenance. It’s also generally non-slip, and these types of decking boards tend to have a 25-year lifespan.

Premium composite decking is ideal for outdoor use because it is far more resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage than wood. It also maintains its colour year after year, and even dark charcoal decking won’t get white streaks or lighten much beyond its original colour. This is because it is designed to be UV-stable and is not as affected as wood by the sun’s strong rays.

This type of decking offers an environmentally responsible and long-lasting way to create gorgeous outdoor areas for both residential and commercial projects. It is designed to elevate any space and provide a stunning wooden aesthetic without the ongoing maintenance.

Where Is Composite Decking Used?

Premium decking is used in a variety of residential and business contexts. Decks, patios, and balconies are examples of outdoor living spaces that frequently use decking as their flooring.

Because of its strength and resilience against deterioration, composite decking is also often used in public locations like parks, boardwalks, and recreation areas. You will also regularly find it in resorts, hotels, and other hospitality facilities, where it’s used to build outside decks, pool surrounds, and walkways.





What Are the Benefits of Using Premium Decking?

Several premium deck board options are available on the market. However, purchasing high-quality decking from BM Steel has many advantages. These include:

 

Durability: Our premium decking is designed to survive all weather conditions with minimal wear and tear and is made of 45% recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and 55% reclaimed wood fibres. This makes it exceptionally resistant to insect damage, rot, and decay. In turn, this guarantees durability and lowers the frequency of maintenance or the need for regular replacement.

 

Low maintenance: Another significant benefit of composite decking is the minimal maintenance required. Our charcoal, walnut, and graphite decking needs only occasional washing with soap and water to maintain its beauty and performance, in contrast to standard wood decking, which frequently requires staining, sealing, and periodic upkeep. In the long term, this saves money and time, making premium composite decking a sensible option for those with a busy lifestyle or for use in high traffic spaces.

 

Aesthetic options: Premium composite decking offers greater design freedom for every project. With different colours, textures, and finishes to choose from, customising or matching outdoor areas to existing aesthetics is so much easier. Whether you prefer the cool, modern aesthetic of contemporary designs featuring graphite decking or the cosiness of natural wood tones like our richly coloured walnut decking, there’s an option that will complement every space.

 

Easy installation: Composite decking is lightweight and easy to install. Once you have a solid timber frame as your base, you simply need to purchase the boards, trim, t-clips and colour-coded screws, and the start/finish cups to match, you're ready to begin the installation. You can opt to DIY or hire a professional to do the job for you.

 

Added value: Composite decking is long-lasting and looks good for years to come. It remains an attractive, useable feature, adding value to any property. It also enhances an outdoor space and makes it an appealing place to spend time.
