3 Benefits of Eco Decking

by | May 7, 2014 | Home Improvement

More and more people are turning from traditional decking using timber to a more eco friendly alternative, termed ‘Eco Decking’ or ‘Composite Decking’, and for good reason. Eco decking uses boards made from environmentally friendly and recycled materials such as HDPE, rice husks, and sawdust. These boards are built for durability and to withstand harsh weather conditions. Eco Decking has some significant benefits –

1. Environmentally Friendly

As the name suggests, Eco decking is loved by Mother Nature and is your environmentally friendly option to decking. Because it’s made entirely from recycled materials, it reduces the need to cut down trees for timber. In addition, eco-decking won’t accumulate preservatives that cause leaching and result in rising arsenic levels to nearby soil. You’ll find this can happen with timber decks. A lot of Eco Decks have an anti-fungal solution as part of their construction too to help protect it from mould and mildew.

2. Low Maintenance

Another benefit of eco decking is that it doesn’t take much effort or time to maintain. Whilst not susceptible in the first place to trapping dirt, grime, grass and other bits and pieces that often find their way into the gaps between timber decking planks, if the eco deck does find itself a tad dirty, you can simply hose it down and not worry about harming the deck – water won’t cause rot!

3. Affordability

Prices vary for Eco decking but you’ll find that most suppliers sell eco-decking boards at very cost-effective rates. Throughout Australia, particularly in the Capital cities – Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, Masters outlets stock decking boards for around $35 – $70 per decking board (depending on size specifications).

Eco decking is the new form of decking. It’s low maintenance, stress free, good for the Environment, rot resistance and doesn’t break the bank. If you’re planning on building a new deck – choose Eco Decking. For more details Click Here.
