I think we all agree timber decking looks great but it isn’t without its flaws. Its slippery struggles in British weather, its yearly maintenance of treating and cleaning, its splintering and its life span. Millboard was founded with the idea of fixing these problems. The Millboard company used their experience of moulding from natural materials and working with polyurethane. The solution created something beautiful: wood-free decking. Its easy to instal with an authentic wood finish as it is moulded from from real oak. It is slip resistant, hard wearing, does not rot or warp and never needs treating. Its UV stable so the boards you lay now will be the same boards in 25 years, which is the length of their warranty, with a life expectancy of 50 years
Millboard vs Composite
Most composite decking combines plastic with wood fibres. But Millboard decking is made from wood-free polyurethane combined with mineral stone to create a unique resin mineral board that’s tough enough for use in outdoor environments all year round. One of the most stable resin materials, it won’t warp or rot, and there is minimal movement in the boards. And because it has no wood content at all, there is nothing that can be affected by damp or attacked by insect larvae.
Composite decking boards are formed by extrusion, where the raw materials are mixed and forced through an opening that determines the shape of the end product. Millboard decking is hand-moulded from original timber, then hand-coloured by our craftsmen, resulting in a far more authentic wood finish – you’d hardly know it wasn’t wood without close inspection.
