Are you wondering if a wood composite made from recycled materials would be suitable for your terrace material? We listed six reasons why wood composite is an excellent choice as a terrace material.
1. A COMPOSITE TERRACE IS WORRY-FREE
A terrace made of composite board is very easy to maintain, as it does not require annual maintenance like, for example, a terrace made of durable wood.
2. CENT COMPOSITE BOARDS ARE DURABLE
If you want durability from your terrace, a composite board is an excellent choice. The composite terrace withstands various weather conditions very well and is also suitable for Nordic conditions.
3. WOOD COMPOSITE IS AN ECOLOGICAL CHOICE
As a material, composite board is an ecological choice for your terrace. CENT's composite boards are completely PVC-free and are made from a mixture of recycled wood fiber and recycled plastic.
4. SAFETY FIRST
CENT's composite boards are not slippery even in the rain, because they have a friction surface that looks like real wood.
5. COMPOSITE BOARD FOR A MODERN AND FINISHED LOOK FOR THE TERRACE
With wood composite, you create an elegant and finished whole for your terrace, which is especially suitable for the modern look of new houses. Composite boards are available in several different colors, and patterns can be found from a traditional grooved surface to a real-feeling 3D wood imitation.
6. PRICE OF WOOD COMPOSITE VS DURABLE WOOD
When considering a composite terrace, the more expensive price might make you think, because a wood composite board is more expensive than a more traditional pressure-impregnated terrace board. In the price, it is good to note that composite decking does not require maintenance and its service life is significantly longer compared to durable wood decking. Even though the price of a durable wooden terrace is more affordable, the annual maintenance measures and the cost of them should be included.
A very common terrace size in townhouses is 5x2m, which is 10m2. Let's calculate the prices for this quantity including accessories:
Outdoor wooden composite decking board 25x146mm:
€8.99/mx 10m2 + 10% waste = 73m = €656.27
Side board €9.95/mx 9m = €89.55
Intermediate/hidden bracket 200 pcs = €59.8
Screws 250 pcs = €11.27
Durable wood terrace board 28x145mm with grooves A class:
€4.93/mx 10m2 + 10% waste = 73m = €359.89
Side board €4.93/mx 9m = €44.37
