Composite Wood provides significant environmental, time and cost savings when compared to natural timber products.
We took a Merbau Hardwood 90mm timber product and compared the total cost over 5 years to COEN Composite 140mm boards on a 20 Sqm deck*. The total cost savings of a COEN Composite deck versus a Merbau deck over 5 years is between $1,400 to $2,000 on a 20sqm area.
*Estimated $50 cost per year for COEN maintenance versus $300 cost per year for Merbau Hardwood. Annual costs considered are time, varnish, brushes/rollers and cleaning agent.
