Why You Should Order Composite Decking Now In Time For Spring

storm WPC decking

As spring starts to settle in the United Kingdom, people finally start to shake off the frosty feeling of winter and look forward to the warmer weather, longer days and the opportunity to spend more time outside.

Many decks struggle to come out of winter the same way they went in, ultimately displaying physical and structural damage from a winter battering. Rot, mould, excess weight and snow buildup can all ruin the structure of a deck and make it unsafe, unattractive or unusable.

For many, decking is a prized area of the home where they can entertain, relax and unwind, whether alone or socially. So if you have no decking at all or your decking needs replacing, it could be time to look at ordering your composite decking in time for the warmer months AND beyond.

Why order composite decking? 

Composite decking, or WPC decking, is a great alternative to traditional timber decking. The plastic content of the composite decking boards makes them more durable and resistant to rot, insects and dampness.

It’s the low-maintenance alternative that will keep on looking great year after year, meaning that a purchase of composite decking this spring will still be a great investment next spring …and the spring after …and the spring after …you get the idea.

WPC decking is perfect for private homes, parks, recreational centres, caravan and camping sites. Ultimately, composite decking guarantees less time wasted on maintenance and upkeep and more time relaxing. Discover more of the benefits of WPC decking for yourself.

Why should you consider ordering now? 


People get excited about the change of the seasons and consumers can get pretty enthusiastic about purchasing products all in one go. This means that many products such as WPC decking can sell out fast before the demand has even been met.

STORM keeps a high-quantity of quality stock all year round but with demand for composite decking developing year by year as people join this popular outdoor living trend, stock levels could drop quickly.

If you order early you can ensure that the colour, size and quantity of decking that you require will be available for quick purchase and delivery.

Avoid stress

Everyone knows how frustrating leaving something too late can be. The phrase ‘oh I’ll do that later’ or ‘that can wait’ can come back to bite you when the time or product is no longer available.

Composite decking is a low-stress product and we’d like to believe that being organised can make sure the process is minimal stress from the very beginning. By purchasing your composite decking in the spring, you don’t have to worry about rushing about in the summer, trying to get everything crammed in before the heat hits.

Enjoy the benefits sooner rather than later

WPC decking can be installed at any time of the year but we would advise installation during the spring. One of the main reasons is that it means you can start enjoying the summer the moment it arrives.

British weather is so unpredictable and the best weather we receive this year could be over the Easter weekend. If you wait until summer to get your decking sorted then you could be missing out on a great opportunity.
