Although TherraWood has been established for over a decade across the globe, it’s still a relatively new name here in the UK, and as such, you might not know what we’re about.
With an insight into our unique, effective products, and details on why they’re well worth the investment, we’ve put together some of the most frequently asked questions about TherraWood and our product range…
What is TherraWood made from?
The material used in TherraWood’s products is a unique WPC (wood polymer composite). It’s made from a creative and effective mix of PVC, wood fibre and additives, providing a highly durable, cost-effective and great looking alternative to timber.
What is TherraWood Hybrid?
TherraWood Hybrid is a new range of products made from an innovative new material blend, combining the strongest properties of three materials – aluminium, timber and polymer. Specifically, each Hybrid profile is made with an aluminium core, then securely covered in an aesthetic timber effect. This leaves you with a real wood look, but a product with the strength and durability of aluminium.

Is TherraWood a better option than genuine wood?
Genuine wood products look fantastic, but in comparison to TherraWood’s products, don’t hold up too well. Real wood is a lot more easy to damage than durable TherraWood, which is also a much lower maintenance option.
Whilst real wood products can fade and warp over time, thanks to the weather, TherraWood is completely weatherproof, and without all of the ill effects wood can receive, has a much longer lifespan.
What can I use TherraWood for?
TherraWood have developed an entire range of stylish products, perfect for any outdoor space. Our composite landscape and building products can be used to add a touch of class to your garden, or can make for stunning centrepieces in larger, commercial environments.
TherraWood pergolas can be perfect additions for shaded, sheltered spots in your space, while our balustrade railing is a great way of bordering areas in a stylish fashion. TherraWood siding is a stunning finish to a new home, and our fencing adds security and privacy to your space while maintaining an effective aesthetic look. We also stock prefabricated homes made from TherraWood, and offer decking options for your garden, or as a poolside walkway.
How safe is TherraWood decking?
TherraWood decking is designed to be a safe option for those using it.
Unlike a lot of wood decking, TherraWood’s decking options are made to be completely slip-free, and are rated class 3 – the highest anti-slip rating possible. As well as being anti-slip, it’s splinter free, and you don’t have to worry about screw heads popping out like you might get over time with standard wood.
TherraWood’s decking is also tested thoroughly in multiple countries for things such as load bearing limits and flammability, and is deemed a completely safe option.
Is TherraWood an environmentally friendly product?
TherraWood acknowledges the responsibility we all have towards improving and preserving the environment, and as such, we ensure all of our products and processes are as efficient as they can be.
All of the wood used in our products comes from sustainable sources, as we do what we can to help preserve the planet’s natural forests, keeping in mind the devastating effects deforestation can have. Our products are also 100% recyclable, meaning use of landfill can be avoided when the time comes that your product’s very long lifespan is eventually over.
Our products are created in a modern, “state of the art” facility, with our equipment fully optimised to be energy efficient, and as least wasteful as possible.
What do I need to do to maintain TherraWood products?
The beauty of TherraWoods products are that they are extremely low-maintenance, especially in comparison with real wood. All you need to do is give it a clean every now and then, with a power washer our recommended tool to blast away any accumulated dirt.
It means you save a lot of money in the long term when compared to the equivalent product made from genuine wood – gone is the need for expensive and sometimes harmful chemicals such as varnish and UV protection.
Does TherraWood look like authentic wood?
Absolutely, it’s what makes it such a great looking, stylish option for any outdoor space. The product might not be made from 100% genuine timber, but it certainly looks and feels that way. While maintaining the general look and style, it packs in many beneficial qualities thanks to the material mix, including a longer life span, higher durability, and a lesser need for maintenance.
How easy is it to install TherraWood products?
The installation of TherraWood products can be both fast and practical, with our designs built in a way that makes it easy for fitters to assemble.
Our decking in particular is designed not just for easy installation, but also clean and discreet fitting. The fasteners used are made from stainless steel, and are hidden away, while a unique design enables you to run cables and wires underneath the decking, safely stored and leaving you with a clear and unobstructed profile.
Are there different styles of TherraWood?
Yes, we know that having just one style for all products isn’t going to suit every project, which is why we offer a range of colours so you can choose one absolutely perfect for your bespoke installation.
From brighter, more vibrant colours such as ivory white and olive green, to darker, classier choices like anthracite, hazelnut brown, and almond beige, there’s something for everyone.
Is my TherraWood installation covered by a warranty?
TherraWood’s products are highly durable, and we can guarantee that they won’t succumb to splintering, rotting or damage from termites or fungal decay, while every finished installation will be free from any material defects in workmanship.
Despite this, problems can still occur in very rare cases, and as such, your investment in a TherraWood installation is protected by a 20 year limit warranty.
