HD Deck Dual – Composite Prime

Jim’s old deck was rotten, so we needed to give him a new one. HD Deck Dual is perfect as it has two different colours to choose from on one board.

Dual-sided composite deck boards offer more options when it comes to designing and layering your deck. Use the contrasting colour around the border or get more adventurous and let your creative juices flow!

The dual-sided composite decking board offers two colour options in one, providing the opportunity to lay a deck with contrasting colours to create a bespoke finish. HD Deck Dual takes composite decking boards to the next level with its ‘capped’ design, creating a protective layer that offers increased protection against fading and the elements for an extra long life.

These composite decking boards have a number of attractive benefits, including:Low maintenance, slip resistance, durable, sustainable and barefoot safe.

They are made from recycled water and milk bottles – On our deck you have used the equivalent of 13,000 Milk/Shampoo Bottles in that area (280 Milk Bottles per Square Metre)!!!

We chose the Antique/Carbon boards – using the antique boards for the majority of the deck and the carbon around the edges. We think it looks stunning!

The HD Deck Dual retails at £66 per sq.m plus VAT
