Millboard Decking vs Composite Decking

No Wood

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.


Many 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.

In spite of its unique composition, Millboard decking is easy to work with and can be sawn and cut with standard woodworking tools. No pre-drilling is required for fixings, and Millboard’s unique Lastane™ surface even flexes itself back over the heads of our special Durafix® screws, leaving a virtually indistinguishable mark to create a clean ‘lost head’ effect.

Because no composite decking is made in the same way as Millboard decking, no composite decking can match Millboard’s stunning good looks or exceptional performance.
