More and more people are adding value to their homes by redoing the floors. In doing so, homeowners are looking for ways to make sure the floor looks beautiful yet stands up to daily wear and tear and lasts for years to come. If you’re considering redoing your home’s floors with composite decorative boards, here are some reasons why you should go ahead and do it now!
What is a composite decorative board?
Composite decorative boards are an interesting product that can add value to your home by providing a unique look, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. Composite boards have a high-pressure laminate that makes them highly durable, making them ideal for areas where water or moisture may be present. Composites are also waterproof, adding another level of versatility in terms of where you can use them. They’re simple enough to cut and install on your own and come in several attractive finishes. Add a composite decorative board or two (or three) to your next remodeling project—you’ll be glad you did!
How does it work?
To create a sleek and seamless look, apply FastTrack underlayment adhesive and lay flooring over it. Fast Track underlayment adhesive contains an elastomeric polymer that is designed to shrink as it dries, locking boards together tightly. With Fast Track underlayment installed underneath, you can rest assured that gaps and cracks will be minimal. A successful installation depends on applying underlayment in uniform thicknesses across the entire floor and making sure all joints are tightly fitted together. Create your best floors by starting with quality products like Unifloor WPC Flooring from Unifloor Plus and installing them in a methodical way.

Benefits of installing composite decking
Resilient: composite decking is made from tough materials that can withstand outdoor elements. It’s hardwearing and long-lasting, so you don’t have to worry about it rotting or warping even in harsh weather conditions. And unlike wood, it doesn’t absorb water or stain, so it stays looking great. Easy to maintain: composite decking requires little maintenance once installed. You just need to clean it regularly using warm water and mild detergent, then leave it to dry naturally before sealing it every year. This will protect against UV rays and ensure its colour lasts for years. Low maintenance cost: compared with other decking options such as natural wood or aluminium, composite decking is more affordable on a day-to-day basis thanks to its low upkeep requirements. Environmentally friendly: because of its recycled content (it’s typically made from upcycled plastics), composite decking is eco-friendly too – which makes sense when you consider how much plastic ends up in landfills each year!
Choosing between planks and tiles
While composite flooring might not be an ideal option for high-traffic areas or households with children and pets, it can offer fantastic benefits in other areas of your home. Just like tiles or planks, it comes in multiple finishes and designs; though composite is much easier to install than either of them. To help you choose between them, here’s a quick rundown of their similarities and differences
Cost comparison between a composite deck and other materials
If you want an affordable, durable and beautiful option, wood-alternative composite decking is a great choice. Costs vary from material to material and project to project, but it’s estimated that composite decking costs about 25 percent less than pressure-treated wood.
