Thus, the maintenance costswill be substantially lower since the product is durable and longlasting for years without costly annual maintenance.The most important factor of our WPC products are thewood and plastic mix we use in the production processcombined with the chemical additives to create a farstronger and more durable WPC product than most ofour competitors.Maintenance90% less than normal timbersMaintenance Factors when consideringWPC against standard wooden decks!The maintenance of wood decking can be time consuming and costly.According to Australian decking experts, timber maintenanceis required every 6-12 months to ensure the durable and longlasting quality appearance of the wood decking.Required Tools and Expenditure• Pad applicator, brushes/rollers, sand paper and turps• Drop sheets for pathway protection, plants and furniture• Drum Sander for rental (if necessary for larger areas)• Safety equipment like gloves, face masks & safety glassesThe activities required are many and include;• Cleaning and sanding• Punching loose nails and filling• Removal of the old wood finishes• Many, many hours of staining, painting & oilingwith drying time being allowedMaintenance of a non-wpc wooden deck is expensive, timeconsuming and does not typically look as good, when comparedto composite decks.Typically, Decker TM WPC decks payfor themselves within 12 months.Materials Expenditure (varies on the conditions of the deck)• Cleaner • Mould Remover • Wood Preservatives• Decking Oils • Decking Stains • Deck PaintsA typical timber deck requires on average 32% moretime to install and finish than composite decks **2009 Decking Council Report.

HomeOwnersDecker TM composite decking should definitely be your first choice,especially if you are looking for a building material that has bothaesthetics and longevity. While hardwood may definitely look asgood on your deck, nothing beats the durability that a good woodcomposite will afford you.As a matter of fact, there is more than one reason why homeownerswhom are looking to remodel or rebuild their decks should considerthis material.First, wood composite decking will help you save money overtime. Most people turn down using wood composite for theirbuilding chores mostly because they are typically more expensivethan natural woods. Comparing the price of the two will totallybe misleading. The initial costs of wood composite is typicallymore expensive than that of natural wood, but since it is almostmaintenance free, you don’t have to spend anything on it again.As if these are not enough reasons, wood composite decking isknown in the construction industry as one of the materials thatonly gets better with time. Believe it or not, this material canundergo even the most extreme weather changes without splittingor splintering. Because of this, you are ensured to have thesame look and feel to your deck even years after the installation.Finally, Decker TM is very user friendly. In addition to requiring verylittle maintenance, it is a low risk building material. It does notchange temperature drastically because of the plastic fibres mixedin with the wood* and will not splinter easily, but most importantly,Decker TM composites will not require the hours of maintenance thata typical wooden deck usually requires, so...This is not the case for wood, which requires at least annualcleaning and repainting. Count the durability factor in, and youwill surely have a winner with Decker TM .Next, Decker TMdecking is perhaps the building material that iseasiest to install. Because composites are specifically designed fordeck-building, very little work and conditioning will be required.Composites are also the mostenvironmentally friendly buildingmaterials used today. Decker ismade from recycled wood’s andplastic, which means no needto cut down trees.Also, wood preservatives are not used during the installation, sothis eliminates the chances that it will damage the groundwaterand the soil around the area of the house.Aesthetically, Decker TMcomposites have the most consistentappearance. There will be no more need to think about peskyknotholes that are often present in natural wood. There will be noneed to arrange your deck in such a way that the imperfections willbe hidden because, guess what, there won’t be any.Sit back, relax and enjoy yournew Decker TMbackyard paradise.*Please be aware that composites are not unlike any other surface whenthe sun hits them. Composites will heat up in the same way woods,concrete and tiles will, with darker colours being more affected thanlighter colours.Please be aware that damage and stains can still occur if not looked afterproperly.
EnvironmentallyConsciousBecoming Environmentally ResponsibleDecker TM is one of the most environmentally friendly choices youhave for a quality decking solution. Limited choices betweensoftwoods and hardwoods that require repetitive treatmentilluminates the fact that Decker is your best environmentallyfriendly choice.No Logging Or DeforestationDecker TM is a conscience-warming solution to illegal and legaldeforestation of hardwood trees currently destroying thenatural environment and animal habitats worldwide.In addition, there is a significant increasing pressure from thecommunity demanding for businesses trading timber to providean environmentally friendly product.Choose your timber composite carefully as many other brandsuse virgin plastics and a portion of reclaimed wood. This resultsin poor quality wood/plastic composite products.Eliminate The Wasteful Repair & Replace CycleDecker TM is designed not to splinter, warp or fade as traditionaldecking timbers do. This dramatically reduces the wastefulcycle of repair and replacement and eliminates the ritualisticapplication of paint, sealers and stains which are generallynasty to the environment.Packaging & Other Environmental EffortsUsing sustainable materials and green manufacturing processesis a policy that touches everything we do; even our packaging ismade from recycled plastics.Usage Of Recycled, Sustainable Raw MaterialsDecker TMis made from nearly 100% recycled materials. Thematerial is about 40% plastic, and around 60% reclaimedwood fibres. Our manufacturing process keeps thousands oftons of wood and plastic scrap out of landfills every year, whiledelivering our customers quality decking products that are notonly stylish and durable, but also environmentally responsible.No Trees are Cut DownOur wood comes from reclaimed wood waste of the woodworkingindustries. Our recycled high-density polyethylene(HDPE) comes from various plastic production factories thatwould otherwise be creating huge volumes of waste plastic.Affordable Eco-Friendly SolutionYou don’t need to pay a premium to be environmentallyresponsible. Typically eco-friendly products have beencomparatively expensive to their non-eco alternatives.Particularly in the building industry, eco-products have beenperceived to lack in function, value and quality… not anymore.By making our products affordable to most people, we makean impact by providing sustainable solutions that have a longterm impact.
