Let's go!

At EcoChoice, we love timber. It is a durable and versatile building material, which looks beautiful. But we also know that it is not suitable for every construction project. That is why our material matching services go beyond timber, exploring other options to bring your build to life, options such as WPC. A great alternative to wood, WPC could be exactly what you need.

What Is WPC?

WPC is a material made from a mixture of wood and plastic. A blend of old, natural resources with new, manmade materials. It is an entirely new product to work with which comes with its own range of specifications. At EcoChoice, our WPC range offers:

  • 4 classic colours to choose from: Cedar, Teak, Grey and Black
  • 16 x 156mm (142mm face cover)
  • FSC certification
  • Recycled plastic
  • Reaction to Fire Classification: B-s2,d0
    • Tested in accordance with EN13501–1:2007 + A1:2009. Fire classification of construction products and building elements – Part 1.

We can also supply you with corner trims and fixing screws. With our processing, you will receive WPC planks which are ready to be installed for quick, efficient construction. Eco-friendly and with a beautiful aesthetic, we have everything you need for your WPC construction requirements.

WPC vs Timber

Timber is a natural material which adapts to its environment: it swells and shrinks with moisture and is faded to a silver-grey by UV light and rain when left unprotected. WPC on the other hand, does none of these things.

The main advantage of WPC is that it is more durable in outside applications. When treated, timber can last for decades, but it does require regular careful maintenance. WPC is much easier to leave as it is, without having to worry about splitting or re-staining. It is also resistant to rot and corrosion, withstanding the elements with ease and making it a popular choice for exterior cladding and decking projects.

WPC is also colour fast, so if you do not like the natural weathering of timber, this is a smart alternative. Decades under sunshine and rain will not affect the colour of your WPC, helping it look its best year after year.

What Does WPC Look Like?

In appearance, WPC is incredibly similar to timber. At EcoChoice, we can source premium quality WPC with a natural wood grain, adding all the aesthetic appeal of timber to your building, but with lower maintenance requirements. However, we can also provide WPC which has a smoother, more perfect finish. This will not look as natural, but is a great choice for contemporary builds.

Eco-Friendly WPC From EcoChoice

WPC is a good choice for sustainable construction. At EcoChoice, all WPC we source is made from recycled plastic, reducing plastic waste being sent to landfills. It also frequently uses timber offcuts and scraps which would otherwise have been unused because of size. Give your building works the green boost they need with sustainable WPC.
