RYNO composite decking solutions
In conclusion, composite decking can often last twice as long as traditional timber decks and will often last up to 25-30 years. It is resistant to many conditions that weaken timber and cause it to degrade over time, making it an attractive choice for those who prioritise longevity and durability.
While we have primarily compared composite to wood in this article, construction professionals may also want to consider aluminium decking as an alternative. It also boasts a long lifespan - you can expect it to provide more than 30 years of service, should you choose to utilise it.
Aluminium decking is the more costly option but construction professionals should weigh the initial investment against long-term costs and establish which works best. It is a strong, versatile material that is non-combustible, making it the material of choice for balconies, decks and terraces on high-rise residential buildings. In recent years, it has proven a particularly popular choice for remediation projects on buildings that need to be brought in line with new fire regulations.
