Why You Should Consider Millboard® Decking Material

When it comes to new deck construction, many homeowners opt for composite materials.  It’s important to note that composite decking materials can vary greatly in terms of appearance, strength, and beauty.  Millboard® decking is a material that ranks high in all these categories.  Founded by a British family in 1976, Millboard® has long been a coveted material that wins high marks for innovation and sustainability.  Here’s what you need to know!

What Is Millboard® Decking?

While many composite decking products give the appearance of wood, Millboard® stands apart from the rest.  That’s because while this type of decking material is wood-free, it is hand-molded from oak.  This gives the decking a textured look and feel.  Each board is also hand-finished and painted, ensuring the utmost in quality and natural-looking variation with each board.

Slip-Resistant Decking Material

Many maintenance-free deck materials are slippery in rainy and snowy conditions.  This can create a safety hazard.  The lastene top-coat in all three Millboard collections is naturally slip-resistant for ultra-slip resistance, including the Lasta-Grip® collection.  The Lasta-Grip collection utilizes textured boards with essentially a sandpaper striping providing excellent resistance to slipping.  This entire collection is ideal for decks, pool decks, docks, landscaping pathways, patio furniture, and playgrounds. Millboard-Lasta-Grip-Golden-Oak-1new

Durability to Withstand the Elements

In Western Wisconsin and Minnesota, it is important the deck a homeowner selects can withstand Mother Nature.  This makes Millboard® decking material a desirable choice because it will not warp and is resistant to mold and mildew because its core is comprised of crushed limestone powder and fiberglass.  In addition, the deck’s composition makes it better able to deter stains from food and debris.  Millboard® goes to extraordinary lengths to create the look of real timber.  The elements can affect Millboard and it will naturally weather and tone down over time.

Beauty and Wood Like Aesthetics

Millboard decking is offered in an array of rustic, modern, and eye-catching colors to give homeowners complete control over the look of their deck.  One pattern molded from real British Oak and one from 100-year-old train car floor in the UK.  In addition, the Durafix system provides a refined look because screws disappear upon a simple install and are not exposed.  Millboard® will not splinter like wood, ensuring its aesthetics stay intact for years to come.

Sustainable Decking Material

Over 1/3 of the structural core of Millboard decking is comprised of recycled materials.  These materials are redirected from waste streams are reprocessed to form exceptional components that can be used in the decking.  The process Millboard® uses to manufacture their deck boards creates minimal waste.  This is because the boards are molded in exact sizes and can be recycled if need be.

"Lindus Construction added a landing and steps to our 2nd floor exterior deck. They completed sooner than promised and did an outstanding job. The materials used are top notch, the construction was done with very good quality, and they look beautiful while being very sturdy. Everything was to code and the post construction inspection found no problems. I'm glad I chose them!"

"The guys who built our deck were very courteous and responsive. There were a couple KDAT boards we didn't like because of some big cracks and we showed them and they replaced them without a problem. After the project was finished they sent out their own Lindus inspector who then showed me some other things that we had not noticed and was sending them back out to take care of. We were really impressed with this.  The initial consultation was very informative about a lot of different products out there today. What they are made of, how they are made, how they hold up, and what is best for your personal budget."

"I recently needed my 22 year old wooden deck replaced and contacted Lindus Construction. Dave, the sales rep, was very responsive and answered my questions. He even looked at the other estimates I received and went over them line by line to explain the differences and signed with Lindus. Chad and Logan did the tear down and rebuild of my deck and they were great! Very efficient, cleaned up the area and constructed the deck in a couple of days. I love it! It looks beautiful and is very well constructed. Then a couple of weeks later, Josh from Lindus called to ask to inspect the deck. I couldn't believe it. Lindus has their own inspectors! I've never seen that before. If you need a new deck, I'd highly recommend contacting Lindus Construction. They aren't the cheapest...but they are the best quality!"
