Decking boards
the world of wooden and WPC decking

Decking in the garden can transform the way you look at your home. While nature lovers prefer wooden decking boards, modern gardeners find WPC decking panels a compelling alternative. If your priority is quality at a reasonable price, try larch or Douglas fir. If durability is paramount, you should choose hardwood such as Cumaru, Garapa or Ipe. For long life with minimal maintenance, opt for WPC decking boards. Order free decking samples quickly and easily here!

Wooden decking boards – it doesn't get more natural than this

Wooden flooring outside is reassuringly classic. The planeo online shop boasts a wind range of wooden decking styles. Domestic wood species such as Douglas fir or larch are just as much a part of the range as the tropical woods Garapa, Cumaru or Ipé. Choose the variety that has the right properties for your site.

Our indigenous Douglas fir and larch products are inexpensive and FSC-certified. Their weather resistance, stability and balanced price-performance ratio make them a popular choice for patio construction. These native softwoods also score points in terms of appearance. They impress with their knotty wood structure and warm colouring.

Tropical woods are something special. Our FSC-certified hardwoods from South America – Ipé, Cumaru and Garapa are durable, highly resistant to pests and require minimal maintenance. They are sourced from sustainable forests and are particularly robust, with up to 25 years’ durability.

What all wooden decking boards have in common is the need for a substructure when laying, which should be made of the same type of wood as the boards.

WPC decking boards - the modern alternative

WPC decking is a great substitute for wooden boards. The detailed grain pattern means they offer something very close to natural wood. Wood plastic composite is an innovative mixture that combines all the advantages of wood and plastic. WPC planks are durable, robust and are naturally highly resistant to moisture. A WPC terrace is crack-free and splinter-free and therefore very barefoot-friendly. The practical WPC decking boards are weatherproof and highly resistant to insects, fungi and moss. In addition, WPC decking boards are very easy to care for – water and a soft brush are usually enough for cleaning.

WPC planks are also visually impressive with their high colour stability. They experience very little fading from UV radiation or washing-out. Quick and easy installation, thanks to the sophisticated clip system, is also another plus with WPC decking. The high-quality wood-plastic composite material can be processed quickly and easily. WPC decking boards can be sawn, milled and drilled with standard woodworking tools.

Questions about decking

Which is better, wooden decking or WPC?

It depends on what is important to you. Wooden decking is 100% natural, looks warm and inviting and is ideal for nature lovers. Weathering, cracks or splinters can be an issue, as can warping. Wooden decks can also become very slippery when wet, especially when a green coating has formed. Therefore, your wooden deck requires regular maintenance to limit any natural weathering. Read more about the different woods for decking material.
WPC decks make for more modern patios. Even though the plank structure is similar to that of wooden decking, WPC planks are characterised by a high degree of uniformity. Neither splinters nor cracks are to be expected. If you want solid, good-looking decking boards that require little maintenance, there’s nothing like WPC decking. Check out more about their pros and cons here.

What is the best way to install decking boards?

In addition to the general installation instructions of the manufacturers, there are a few more things to consider. Crucially, you should pay attention to the subfloor. This is because it supports the whole deck construction and must be more stable and weather-resistant than the planks themselves. While the boards can be easily replaced from above, repairing a substructure is a much bigger job. Today, decking boards are usually installed with clips, which makes the process relatively easy and also makes screws invisible. Here are the most important tips for laying decking boards.

What about cost?

This varies greatly. Decking boards are sold by the metre (running metre). The different prices for wooden decking boards are down to availability, transport routes and durability. For WPC decking boards, it depends on the manufacturer, material composition, raw material quality, dimensions and quality control. Currently we’re seeing the following market prices per running metre:

  • WPC hollow planks 3–8 €
  • WPC solid planks 5–15 €
  • Sheathed WPC planks 7–20 €
  • Titanwood WPC planks 7–15 €

Which surfaces are suitable for laying decking?

Decking can be laid on almost any surface. This is because it is almost always possible to find a suitable solution for building the right substructure. Solid subfloors such as concrete, tiles or slabs are ideal and require minimal preparatory work. Gravel surfaces are also load-bearing and therefore possible. If you want to lay decking boards on soil, you must create load-bearing supports for the substructure. Click here for more information on planning terraces.
