Composite decking boards are made from wood fibre, some form of plastic and a binding agent. The result is denser, harder and heavier than wood alone. And since it will not rot, splinter, warp or host the growth of algae, it is perfect for making decking boards. They look like wood. They can be worked like wood. But composite decking boards will last longer and are virtually maintenance-free - no more staining, sanding or painting. And since they are anti-slip, even in the wet, there are no health and safety issues either, making them ideally suited to commercial and public areas as well for use as private decking.
Composite decking boards from Havwoods
At Havwoods we are passionate about wood, but when it comes to decking we reserve our passion for the composite products we have sourced. We have scoured the world for the composite decking products which both satisfy our standards and fulfil your needs. So all our decking boards are particularly strong and stable with a solid construction - very important - and are both fade- and stain-resistant. But equally importantly they come from highly ethical European and North American companies with superior ecological credentials.

Installing and maintaining composite decking boards
All of our composite decking boards are easy to install. They can be machined with standard woodworking tools and comprehensive installation instructions are available on this website under 'information'. We also stock a complete range of accessories, including ribbed and bullnose step edges, fascia boards and stainless steel fixings.
Maintenance couldn't be simpler. Simply wash Tekker boards occasionally with clean water; any stubborn stains may be lightly sanded; whilst soap and water is sufficient to maintain the Xscape boards.
Finally, please note that we carry a small collection of composite cladding to complement our Trekker collection of decking boards.
