composite timbers

The use of composite and plastic decking products as an alternative to timber may still be relatively new in Australia but there's already a vast range of products available and it's growing.

We have found throughout our Williams Group stores that the use of of both composite cladding and decking is growing at an exponential rate.

Wood-plastic composite (WPC) deck products are the dominant type, although there are rice husk-plastic and other fillers, as well as entirely plastic versions.

The main reason for its popularity is its low maintenance but other benefits include its standardised size and straightness, as well as its termite, water and UV resistance.

Williams Group Australia recommend and can supply many differing products from different manufacturers, we have found that Modwood in either the 88x23mm or 137mm decking would have the major share of the Williams WPC decking business, however products from Biowood and Trex are making a noticeable change on the Williams Group product offer.

One of my favorites is the Biowood Castellated Cladding this product looks great and also provides the installer with an easy installation process. Extensive use in the commercial fit out market.
