Environmental commitments are expected across the contemporary building sector. Both homeowners and commercial clients are increasingly looking for sustainable solutions to reduce their impact on the planet. For those in the property management or construction sectors, offering eco-friendly products is crucial when fitting outdoor decking.

Building Materials Nationwide has a firm commitment to providing our customers with the sustainable products they need, including through our range of decking, which offers great looks and performance whilst minimising environmental harm. With competitive pricing and high-quality materials, we're your go-to source for sustainable decking projects.

Why It's Crucial to Prioritise Sustainability

Whether installing decking for a managed property or a commercial client, prioritising sustainability is not only important for the environment but also for the success of your business. Here are some key reasons why:

  • Today, many clients will be looking for an eco-friendly solution regardless of their building project. Offering them recycled or sustainably sourced decking that still meets their other needs will help to ensure their satisfaction.
  • Using sustainable building materials will also help to ensure compliance with government regulations and ensure that larger projects meet the requirements for green building certifications.
  • Being a company that prioritises sustainability can be a real selling point for customers and help to improve brand awareness and public perception.

Building Materials Nationwide is committed to sustainable practices within the construction industry. That's why we offer a wide range of eco-friendly decking materials to help you create beautiful and durable outdoor spaces while minimising your environmental impact.

Our Range of Sustainable Decking Materials

We believe that high-quality and eco-friendly products can help protect the environment while providing long-lasting, attractive results. We offer a full selection of decking boards through our website, with different materials, sizes, and colours letting you meet the visual and performance needs of your clients.

  • Composite decking boards: We offer a range of Cladco composite decking board designs, each of which is made from a 100% recycled blend of plastic and wood fibres. They’ll offer fantastic long-term performance, a benefit to both the environment and your customers.
  • Timber decking boards: Providing they are properly maintained, timber boards can offer fantastic long-term performance, with a beautiful natural grain. We offer both standard timber and options with slip-resistant inserts, perfect for ensuring safety on decks. Timber decking will also degrade naturally when the time comes to replace it.

We understand that every project is unique, which is why we go above and beyond to source products for our professional customers. Through our trade accounts, our dedicated account managers can get you the decking products you need to complete your project, delivered to you at a great price.

Sustainable Design Inspiration

In addition to choosing eco-friendly decking materials, there are actions you or your customers can take to benefit the environment. By incorporating these sustainable practices into projects, you can help to reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier planet.

  • Install rainwater harvesting systems around the decking to reduce water waste.
  • Build green walls around the decking to improve air quality and provide habitats for wildlife. You can also install a pergola over the decking and create a green roof.
  • Plant native, drought-resistant plants to reduce water usage and support local ecosystems.
  • Install energy-efficient lighting systems to reduce energy consumption.
  • Build decking that maximises access to natural light to further minimise energy usage.
