Just because you’ve chosen a composite decking product doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the look and feel of your deck. After all, it is designed to be there for a very long time so satisfaction is paramount. If a natural aesthetic is a priority for your home or commercial renovation project, woodgrain composite decking is an option that performs as beautifully as it looks.
For those who love the look and feel of wood but don’t want to spend precious hours scrubbing, treating and worrying about a traditional timber deck, woodgrain composite decking is the perfect solution. Composite decking does not rot, decay or splinter in the elements, and its slip resistance lends peace of mind, especially if used in an environment with children, pets or the elderly. The wood flour element of Composite Prime’s production process brings all the beauty of a natural wood grain appearance without any of the maintenance and upkeep that traditional materials require.
Advances in composite technology over the past decade have meant that a high quality composite deck with a woodgrain finish looks almost indistinguishable from timber. However, it’s still important to choose a manufacturer carefully: installed badly, composite decking can look conspicuous or even tacky if the woodgrain pattern is carved unnaturally or boards look identical when laid side by side.
The very best woodgrain composite products have subtle graining and textures, are reversible to change up the pattern or colour, and are installed in a careful way that prevents each board from lining up with another that looks the same. Composite Prime’s HD Deck Dual offers the most versatility of the range: dual-sided board come in six shades and a deck can be laid with contrasting colours to create a bespoke and beautiful finish.
Installing composite decking can be a sizeable investment but it can be a more cost-effective solution than traditional timber decking, owing to composite’s ease of maintenance and durability. Once installed, composite decking is inexpensive to maintain and all of Composite Prime’s products come with a 10 to 25 year warranty.
When building outdoor environments, it is essential to select materials that will stand the test of time through everything that the elements throw their way. While traditional timber is often seen as a more natural and environmentally friendly option, wooden decking may need to be replaced sooner than a wood-plastic composite. Its porosity and vulnerability to threats like mould, mildew algae, wood-eating insects and other surface damage mean that keeping a timber deck safe and looking nice is a constant battle against nature.
By combining FSC 100% certified ‘end of life’ hardwood flour and recycled HDPE plastics, Composite Prime’s products support socially responsible environmental policies for architects and building contractors while providing assurance to customers that their choice in decking materials does not come at a cost to the earth.
Composite Prime offers three different styles of woodgrain composite decking, all of which use the unique True Grain Colour System™, which replicates the natural colour variations seen in timber.
A luxurious option, HD Deck Pro features a protective capped layer and is dual-sided, offering a traditional woodgrain design in Champagne and Oyster. Extra-wide, 200mm boards lend a smooth and seamless look to any decking area.
With a deeply textured 3D surface that creates the look and feel of natural timber, HD Deck 3D line comes in four colours and is reversible. One side of the board features a natural-looking woodgrain while the other is a more classic grooving. This versatility means that your deck can keep up with trends and preferences over time.
HD Deck Dual is a capped product that is most similar to traditional timber and offers the greatest versatility and customisation. Composite Prime offers dual-sided boards in six shades: antique/carbon, oak/walnut and natural oak/slate. This provides the opportunity to lay a deck with contrasting colours to create a bespoke finish, and means the deck can be changed around and updated according to future trends and preferences.
