Best Deck Composite Wood Products

Published: April 1, 2020

Take your swimming pool area to new heights by installing exquisite composite wood decking around it. Best Deck designs and installs a range of stylish decking (as well as the pergolas and finishings to match) for use outdoors and around swimming pools. This not only elevates your outdoor swimming area into a stunning entertainment spot, but also increases the value of your property.

Composite Decking Around Swimming Pool

Above-Ground Swimming Pools

South African summers get really hot, but not everyone can install a traditional swimming pool at their house or office block. An above-ground pool is a great option because it is easier on the budget and quick to install. They’re also available in so many different shapes and sizes, and tend to be safer because of the elevated sides (which are harder for little ones to climb).

Decking around and up the sides of an above-ground pool transforms it to a stylish feature of your property. Whether you want your decking to be level with the top of the pool, halfway down or just around its base, Best Deck can install gorgeous composite wood to create a stunning outdoor area.

In-ground Swimming Pools

In-ground or built-in pools are more traditional swimming pools (usually made from PVC, concrete or fibreglass) that have been sunken into the ground. They can be built in so many sizes and designs and are particularly long-lasting. They can also be heated for swimming in winter or at night and are a great addition to any home or office block to increase its value.

Why Install Composite Wood Decking?

The biggest challenge and danger of the area around a swimming pool is slipping on the wet surface. A pool is a place of fun and games, which means that children and teens are often running around it and jumping into it; all within a very wet environment. Best Deck’s composite wood decking is, perhaps, one of the best defences against injury because it is completely slip-resistant.

There are many more benefits of installing our composite wood decking around the swimming pool. Our products are:

  • Non-splintering, so no nasty surprises when you’re barefoot around the pool.
  • Resistant to fading, warping and cracking.
  • Well-priced and add value to your property.
  • Maintenance-free.
  • Easy to install.
  • Guaranteed for between 10 and 25 years (depending on the specific product).
  • Extremely durable, even in the presence of sunshine, rain and frequently wet conditions.
  • More eco-friendly than wood.
  • Repellent to any insect infestation.

Tips for Your Pool Decking Installation

  • Your pool decking should be at least 1.2 metres wide.
  • Choose colours that work well with your building’s exterior, garden furniture and personal taste.
  • Create more of a feature out of your decking by including plants, lighting and sun loungers.
  • Consider putting a pergola up in the same composite wood as your swimming pool decking so that there’s a shady spot that doesn’t detract from your aesthetics.
  • Consider adding a braai area or fire pit to your decked pool area to transform it into a vibey entertainment hub for friends, family or colleagues.
