Eco wood composite decking is simply composite wood decking with environmentally friendly properties. For architects and interior designers who are considering a compoisite decking material that is both easy to maintain and sustainable for a green building project, eco wood composite decking is certainly a recommended option. Here are seven benefits of eco wood composite decking:
As eco wood composite decking is produced from high quality flooring manufacturers with well equipped technologies, it is highly easy to clean and maintain. All home owners need to do is to wash the wood decking by spraying water on it. As simple as that! Unlike conventional wood decking which requires at least re-painting or re-varnishing to maintain the deck, home owners can save refurbishing costs with wood composite decking products.
Setting itself apart from standard composite decking manufacturers, eco wood composite decking is manufactured with high amounts of natural wood flour (more than 60%). This makes it eco renewable and recyclable. By substituting solid wood decking with eco wood composite decking, more trees can be saved and home owners can play a part in protecting the environment.
Eco wood composite decking is also highly durable and weather resistant to rain or shine. Compared to conventional wood decking material, eco wood composite decking has higher levels of heat and UV resistance. This makes eco wood composite decking ideal for outdoor areas such as the balcony, patio or swimming pool, where home owners and their family members often walk bare-foot on. As the decking material is naturally waterproof, it is a recommended option for outdoor decking purposes.

Wood composite decking has a relatively stronger dimensional stability than standard composite decking and some soft wood decking materials that are commonly used in Southeast Asia, such as pine or cedar wood. A good quality decking product with better dimensional stability will adapt better to changes in surrounding temperature as well as moisture conditions.
As mentioned earlier, eco wood composite decking has relatively better heat resistance. This makes it comfortable for the feet. Moreover, unlike natural wood decking, it does not cause splinters to occur due to its synthetic make-up. Beyond its comfort levels, a good quality wood composite decking is tested for slip resistance, therefore making it a safe option for families with children or seniors.
A good quality eco wood decking gives a firmer feel when stepped upon. As compared to softer wood species used for decking purposes, eco wood composite decking gives a firmer and more balanced feel when one steps on it.
In summary, the characteristics of eco wood composite decking places it a notch above conventional composite wood decking as well as soft wood decking products. Property owners who are looking for a durable and eco friendly outdoor decking material that is easy to clean and maintain, can turn to eco wood composite decking.
