For years, natural hardwood decking was the way to go – but composite decking has boomed in popularity in recent years because it delivers all the beauty of wood with none of the drawbacks. Let’s compare:
- Splinter, crack and warp
- Scratch and stain easily
- Are susceptible to moisture, sun and insect damage
- Require annual staining, sanding and painting
- Are made from felled trees which are pressure-treated with toxic chemicals
- Have a lower upfront cost but require expensive maintenance
- Resist mould, UV and insect damage, and do not splinter or crack (if purchased from a reliable brand
- Can be reinforced with ‘capped’ technology protecting them from moisture, scratches and stains
- Require simple soap and water cleaning
- Are usually backed by a warranty of at least 25 years
- Are fabricated from recycled materials such as reclaimed lumber and plastic
At Delta Decks we only use industry-leading materials from the world’s top composite decking brands, including Fiberon, TimberTech and Trex. These companies offer tried-and-tested products famous for their durability, available in multiple collections and dozens of natural colours, and protected by decades-long warranties.
WE BUILD WITH INDUSTRY-LEADING DECKING MATERIALS
When researching to build your composite deck, you will encounter different companies, collections and board types. They generally fall into the following categories:
Super cheap, unknown foreign brands: these products can sometimes be found for $4/sq. ft. at major retail stores. However, they have no warranty and tend to discolour, peel and crack – you get what you pay for.
Entry-level products from major North American brands: every major brand has an entry-level composite decking collection (for example Trex Enhance, Fiberon Goodlife and TimberTech Edge). Boards are usually available in 2-3 solid colours, have a scalloped underside, and cost around $6-7/sq. ft. Of the three major brands, Fiberon is the clear entry-level leader as they use the same quality capping material as in their premium ranges and remove very little material for the scalloping in comparison to TimberTech and Trex.
Premium entry-level products: the colours used for these decking boards are multi-tonal rather than solid, delivering that natural wood aesthetic. Quality-wise, the boards are the same as entry-level and Fiberon remains the leader. You can expect to pay about $7-8 sq. ft. for products in this category.
Mid-range composite decking: such boards have a solid profile (not scalloped), a wider array of colours, and are wrapped on three sides with plastic capping. Trex, Fiberon and TimberTech offer good choices in this category, and we recommend opting for newer product lines which are trendier in appearance and utilise the latest advances in technology. Expect to pay between $10-12 per sq. ft.
Top-of-the-range composite decking: these composite decking boards have a protective cap on all sides, providing the most attractive look and the best scratch and moisture resistance. Only Fiberon and TimberTech offer products in this category, which cost around $12-14/sq. ft.

- WHAT IS IPE WOOD DECKING?
Ipe is a hardwood species that grows in Central and South America (it is also known as Brazilian Walnut). Thanks to its density, durability, moisture resistance and beauty, Ipe is the undoubted leader of all wood decking materials – and the industry standard that all other lumber decking is compared to.
- WHAT KIND OF COMPOSITE DECKING DO YOU RECOMMEND?
As we said, each composite brand is made of its own special blend of materials – some better than others. In Delta Decks’ years in business we have seen many ‘new and improved’ composite brands try and fail in just a couple of years, when they can’t match their competitors for quality and people stop buying their products. We would recommend Trex – an industry leader in composite decking for more than 20 years. Trex offers the most reliable composite decking on the market, continually bringing out new products made with the latest technology and built on their decades’-long foundation of experience.
- SO IS A PLASTIC DECK THE SAME AS A COMPOSITE DECK?
No. A plastic deck – otherwise known as a PVC deck – is made of 100% plastic. Composite decks are a blend of wood and plastic.
- I HAVE AN OLDER DECK. CAN I REPLACE THE DECK BOARDS WITH COMPOSITE BOARDS?
It is possible to do this, as long as your decking frame was properly constructed and remains in good condition. Contact us for a free quote to replace your old decking.
- HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO WASH MY COMPOSITE DECK?
Thanks to their technology, most composite decks don’t need the protective finishing that wood decking does. However, we still recommend that you wash your composite deck with soap and water every 1-2 years to avoid damage from the elements.
