But designing a deck varies, and its appearance is largely up to you. Customers have a plethora of options to choose from, though typically people lean towards composite decking materials. There are many reasons why composite decking materials are a fantastic option when it comes to DIY home projects. Here, are the top 5 reasons why you should choose Britedeck for all your composite decking needs.
1. Plenty of styles, textures and colour preferences.
Even though composite decking materials are manufactured, composite decking is designed to mimic wood grains and colours of natural timber – minus the hassles. Composite decking comes in an array of different colours and tones and because of its durability and weather-resistant nature, you can be assured that your Brite™ composite deck will look brand new even after years of use. Our composite decking materials include decking, fascia and fencing – available in 12 matchless colours, across 3 different finishes – Classic, Solid XS and our NextGen Titanium Range.
2. Low Maintenance! It doesn’t require any staining, oiling, sealing or painting.
A timber deck typically lasts 15 years… That is if they are properly maintained and well looked after. With composite decking materials, you never have to stain, paint or seal, as our composite decking boards maintain their colour and beauty all year round. This is due to the manufacturing process which includes the addition of mould and UV resistant additives. So what kind of maintenance do Brite™ boards require? Simple: Keep it Clean. It’s incredible but that’s it! Just wash it with soap and water regularly.

This means there is virtually 0 per cent wastage. Most importantly, our composite decking boards typically take 70 per cent less time than installing a timber deck. There’s no pre-drilling, nailing or punching. The concealed fastening system, screws directly into typical joist layouts and spacing, timber and metal sub frames.
