After extensive research of different decking boards available in the market, I decided to use composite boards to cover my rebuilt deck substrates. I ordered samples from various composite decking suppliers and soon concluded that not all composite boards are equal. Almost all of the samples I discarded immediately, mainly because of their poor scratch resistance. Very quickly two products stood out as being superior to the others. Permadeck was one of those two and was the product that I finally settled on for a number of reasons. It has a very nice wood like grain that has an incredible non-slip surface, even when wet. The Permadeck boards have been down for approximately two years now and I have only had to clean them once in that time, and even then they weren’t really that dirty. Before I finally chose Permadeck, I rubbed dirt into their sample and the other products sample that I was contemplating purchasing. Permadeck’s sample cleaned up easily, where as the other manufacturers sample , which had a softer more rubber like surface was more difficult to clean , especially in the grooves. The scratch resistance and non absorbing characteristics of Permadeck are amazing, and even after two years it looks as good as it looked after it was finished.
Although Permadeck wasn’t the cheapest composite product on the market, it was still substantially cheaper than the other product I was thinking of using .
All the other advantages of Permadeck composite boards can be found on their very comprehensive and informative website, along with photos of my job in Waiatarua, Auckland. To add icing to the cake, Permadeck have a 25 year structural warranty. That alone should tell you how much faith they have in their product.
And lastly, the service I was given from the owner, Craig Nees and his staff at Permadeck was exceptional, and I can’t recommend both them and their product highly enough. Thanks Craig
“I would like to thank you for the introduction and supply of Permadeck at Mount Hot Pools back in March 2021. Originally, we had hard wood sun decks around our children’s and spa pools. We struggled to keep these maintained in our environment due to both the heavy foot traffic and it consistently being wet, causing the non-slip coatings applied to the wood to wear off and become very slippery. We had multiple closures of our decks to strip and reapply the non-slip finish due to slips and ended up just covering the wood with mats.
I am pleased to say that in the nearly 4 years that we have had Permadeck in place, we have had zero reported slips. Being located beneath the pool fountains, next to the children’s pool, it is constantly wet and children are often running and excited. This is a huge merit to your product’s surface and durability. To put this into perspective, we have had approx. 100,000 children through our venue since 1st April 2021 without slips on the deck that children play on.
I am happy to endorse your product through our experience if you ever need a product reference.”

This has transformed our old, outdated, tired pool area into a modern, sleek and welcoming design. Sales and service support were everything you could hope for: timely communication, listened to my needs, advice on build, and recommendation of builders with experience with Permadeck decking installation.”
