What is Millboard Decking?
Millboard decking is designed to be one of the most durable decks available while mimicking the classic timber aesthetic which is still highly sought after by homeowners. Each board is hand-moulded with the finest pieces of oak, giving each one a unique look and a texture that resembles the real thing, besides the lack of splinters you will get from Millboard!
Given its natural, wood-like texture and finish, you might expect it to require additional maintenance. However, Millboard decking has a key advantage of being almost maintenance-free. Each board is also 100% recycled, making it the sustainable decking choice.
When you compare Millboard to other decking types, the advantages begin to add up!

Millboard vs Timber Decking
As we’ve mentioned, Millboard decking has a special position in the market. It perfectly combines the benefits of traditional timber decking in Devon with the durability, longevity and strength of its cousin, composite.
Its aesthetic would have you thinking that it is natural timber, with each board being unique and having a texture that makes it look like real wood.
The main differences are its maintenance requirements, durability, and colour ranges available.
The biggest concern with timber decking is its propensity to host algae, rot, and splinter over time. In the UK, we ‘enjoy’ a range of weather conditions that can limit the lifespan of this traditional deck.
One of the key advantages of Millboard decking is its durability. Unlike wood, which can rot and splinter over time, Millboard decking is resistant to these problems and can last for many years with minimal maintenance. This makes it a great choice for homeowners who want a long-lasting outdoor space that they can enjoy for years to come.
Another benefit of Millboard decking is its low-maintenance nature. Unlike wood decking, which requires regular staining and sealing, Millboard decking is designed to be easy to care for. This means you can enjoy your outdoor space without worrying about maintaining it.
In addition to its durability and low-maintenance nature, Millboard decking is also available in a range of colors and styles. This means you can create a beautiful outdoor space that complements your home’s exterior and adds value to your property.
Installing Millboard decking is simple and straightforward. The decking boards are designed to interlock, which means you can easily create a stable and secure deck without the need for specialized tools or expertise.
To maintain your Millboard decking, it’s important to keep it clean and protected from the elements. To clean your decking, you can use a mild soap and water solution and a soft-bristled brush. Be sure to rinse the decking thoroughly with clean water after cleaning to remove any soap residue. To protect your decking from the sun, wind, and rain, you can use a decking protector or sealer.
In conclusion, Millboard decking is a great choice for homeowners who want a durable, low-maintenance, and beautiful outdoor flooring solution. It offers the look and feel of natural wood without the drawbacks, making it a popular choice for outdoor spaces of all sizes.
