Installing solid wooden or wood plastic composite (WPC) decks is a great way to extend patio space, make room for additional seating space, and create flooring space for shade structures.

The UAE weather makes outdoor flooring hot, that is why decks are nice to step on to without burning the feet. They can be attached to or detached from a house. They can be covered by a shade structure or open. When covered, they make a great seating area, and create a nice ambience with beautiful mood lighting.

Most of the time, decks are elevated above the ground and are built as an extension of a building or a house. Decks can withstand and support weight. When a deck is oiled, it looks nice and natural.

Solid Iroko wood and Indonesian teak hardwood can sustain heat. WPC offers superior performance, and a number of environmental and maintenance advantages over hardwood. The patented WPC is an eco-friendly alternative to timber.

WPC decks offer comprehensive durability, slip resistance, appearance, technology and environmental sustainability. Made from 100% recycled wood flour and plastic, WPC deck cell technology boards are lighter, easier to transport and handle, more rigid, and easier to install than solid boards. They also look, feel and even smell like real timber.

Unburden yourself and enjoy without fear of insect attacks as decks are now being made of high quality, insect-resistant wood. Maximize your living space and enjoy the durability of wood decks that are pressure-treated. Put up a small dining space in the deck, or simply make it into a sitting area.

Be relieved from the effects of weather conditions. Pressure-treated decks are assured to stand high moisture, and have an exceptional ability to ward off decay.

Overall, decks are the right structure to add more living space to a house. They can also incorporate style to a yard, and can be utilized as an alternative to patios.
