Timber versus Plastic
There are certain areas of the home where timber decking is preferred over plastic. For instance, decking around the pools or landscaping in gardens is best done in wood, as it is directly laid over the natural surface of land, without affecting the drainage system of the pools. Moreover, the natural hue and graining of wood complements the natural setting and gives it warmth and a traditional touch.
Timber decking in gardens divides the huge outdoor space into smaller sections with its geometric lines that enhance the visual appeal and usability of outdoor space. It is also used in patios, even if the interior flooring of the house is not done in wood, as it can aesthetically complement other flooring materials such as tiles or stone.
Plastic decking requires minimal or no maintenance at all, so it might be a perfect choice for families with kids, or areas that are meant for heavy traffic. It is also preferred for its exceptional dimensional stability, which is in contrast with timber decking that shrinks or expands under certain weather conditions. These are costlier than treated wood, so that may be a considerable factor for homeowners that are working within a certain budget. Moreover, plastic decking cannot be used in Green or eco-friendly design concepts.
