A Word From Our Hovis FreeWheel partners- Ecoscape UK Composite Decking

Wooden decking eventually loses its color and this means you have to repaint it. Not only that, but you will likely have to replace some of the boards due to things like wood splitting or warping. All of these things result in you spending more money and spending a lot of time.

One of the key benefits of composite decking is it is cheaper to maintain and you don’t have to stain it. Furthermore, it is strong and offers a good amount of protection against warping, fading and splitting. When you install it, you can count on it lasting for many years to come.

Low Maintenance

Timber decking requires you to paint it or stain it if you want to protect it from the outdoor elements. Composite decking is easy to use right after it has been fitted, and as previously mentioned you don’t have to stain it in order to protect it from the elements. In other words, composite decking required very low maintenance and re-coating your deck will be something you don’t have to do again. Nor will you have to scrub it clean on a yearly basis, which can be a daunting task.


Perhaps the best benefit of all is composite decking has a host of safety features, especially when you consider that composite decking is splinter free. Not only that, but many manufacturers produce composite decking that is slip-resistant, which means you can use your decking even when it’s wet. When you have a timber deck, then it may become moldy and its strength could weaken. If safety is a major concern for you and you want decking that is completely safe to use, even when wet, then consider having composite decking installed.

Endurance And Appearance

If you take good care of your deck and perform the very little maintenance it requires, then you can bet it will last for a very long time. Just make sure you choose a reputable decking contractor with plenty of experience to install it for you.

Reports are coming through of a giant bike sighted near City Hall. 

Though these reports are as yet unconfirmed, many believe this bike is only the start of what’s to come later this summer, when bikes are expected to invade the capital for Hovis London Freewheel.

On Sunday 23rd September, many of central London’s most iconic roads will be traffic-free and all Londoners are invited to enjoy a view of the capital that’s never been seen before – taking a leisurely ride round sights like Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Thames and Buckingham Palace.
