Decking is a sure-fire way to enhance your outdoors space, from balconies to patios. But choose the right product and you can say goodbye to slippery surfaces, rot and endless cleaning…

Decking that’s different

Decking has been a popular addition to homes over the last few decades. In theory, it’s a perfect way to create a socialising place outside that’s low maintenance and tidy, all while looking great.

However, many people’s experiences have been different in reality. Traditional wood decking might look wonderful, but it expands and contracts at the behest of the weather, is prone to developing a slippery surface, rots and is infested by wood-loving insects.

Composite decking has been seen as an attractive alternative, but as that also contains wood elements, it has also proven to be far from perfect. Enter Millboard

The end result is extremely stable so isn’t prone to damp, rot or warping.
