Choosing the Right Composite Decking for Your Outdoor Space

Choosing the Right Composite Decking for Your Outdoor Space

Selecting the perfect composite decking for your outdoor space involves several crucial factors, including colour, compatibility, budget, safety, and installation. At General Hardware Supplies, we understand the importance of making an informed buying decision. Let's explore these key considerations to help you choose the ideal composite decking solution for your needs.


Colour Selection

When choosing composite decking, consider the colour options available and how they align with your desired aesthetic. General Hardware Supplies offers a diverse range of colours, including Brown, Charcoal, and Grey, allowing you to find the perfect hue that complements your outdoor environment and personal style. Brown offers a warm and natural look, Charcoal brings a modern and sleek feel, while Grey provides a contemporary and versatile option. Consider your surrounding landscape and the atmosphere you want to create on your deck.



Ensure that the composite decking you choose is compatible with your existing structures, such as railing systems, stairs, and any other architectural features. General Hardware Supplies provides a comprehensive range of composite accessories, including handrails, end posts, and side covers, ensuring a seamless and visually appealing integration with your chosen decking. Our accessories are designed to complement the colour and style of our composite boards, offering a cohesive and safe outdoor space. Whether you're looking for a traditional or contemporary design, we have the accessories to suit your preferences and enhance the functionality of your deck.


Budget Considerations

Consider your budget when selecting composite decking. While composite decking may have a higher upfront cost compared to traditional wood, it offers long-term savings through reduced maintenance and increased durability. Factor in the lifespan of the decking, maintenance requirements, and potential savings in repair and replacement costs over time. General Hardware Supplies offers competitive pricing options without compromising on quality. Our composite decking is designed to withstand the elements and resist fading, warping, and rotting, ensuring a long-lasting investment that adds value to your outdoor space.


Safety Features

Safety is paramount when it comes to outdoor decking. If you have specific safety requirements, consider incorporating features such as handrails, balusters, and post caps. General Hardware Supplies offers a wide range of composite handrail systems that provide both functionality and aesthetics, ensuring a secure and beautiful deck. With different styles and colours available, you can choose the handrail system that best suits your deck design and enhances its overall safety.


Installation Options

Determine whether you plan to install the composite decking yourself or hire a contractor. If you're confident in your DIY skills, General Hardware Supplies provides composite decking systems that are designed for easy installation. Our composite boards feature innovative installation methods, such as hidden fastening systems or clip installation kits, ensuring a seamless and secure deck surface without visible screws or nails. For those who prefer professional installation, we can recommend experienced contractors in your area who have expertise in working with our composite decking products.


By considering these essential factors - colour selection, compatibility, budget, safety features, and installation options - you can confidently choose the right composite decking for your outdoor space. General Hardware Supplies offers a wide range of composite decking solutions, along with complementary accessories, to help you create a beautiful, durable, and safe deck that suits your style and needs.
