CREATE AN OASIS WITH cWPC DECKING
Homeowners and property developers alike are becoming increasingly conscious about building and designing a calm and beautiful sanctuary. But beyond the chic interior spaces that can be easily revamped with furnishings, the outdoor space requires a strong foundation upon which other elements can be added to. A natural extension of one’s unit and the entire residence, decking out the outdoor space adds character in unrivalled ways. However, deciding on the right decking for a project can be overwhelming — especially since solid wood decking, the traditional choice, requires closer maintenance and care.
Introducing Capped WPC decking, also known as Capped Wood Plastic Composite decking. Closely resembling 100% wood deck boards, this stylish alternative efficiently eliminates the common problems of natural solid timber.

WHY CHOOSE TULOU FOR WPC DECKING SERVICES
Driven to emulate the virtues of Tulou, directly translating to Earthen Buildings, we offer products and services that are a class above the rest.
ROBUST ALUMINIUM SUPPORT STRUCTURE
Evolving from the standard natural timber support runners that result in dry rot when exposed to high levels of condensation or water, Tulou uses aluminium support runners as the base support when installing the WPC decking. This not only mitigates any form of rotting or deterioration but the minimal spacing between each runner also boosts the structural integrity of the deck and prevents it from sagging over time.
ECO-FRIENDLY MANUFACTURING PROCESS
Tulou decks boast Singapore’s leading environmental standard and certification mark — the Singapore Green Labelling Scheme. Meeting the extensive list of eco-standards and adhering to the highest international standards, our high-quality composite decking minimises the impact on the environment. Manufactured through an eco-friendly process that uses minimal energy and water, our manufacturing process minimises the release of toxic chemicals into the environment, supporting your sustainability goals.
TRUSTED AND PROVEN INSTALLATION METHOD
At Tulou, we follow a hidden clips installation method so that visible screws are minimised across the deck after the WPC decking is installed. Through a tried-and-tested systematic process of installation, the best-looking decking with the best performance is guaranteed. Our Invisible Clips Fastening System that uses 304 Stainless Steel clips also reduces potential hazards, making our WPC decking the optimal choice for any residential and commercial project.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT WPC DECKING SERVICES
IS WPC DECKING ANY GOOD?
If you are looking to beautify your outdoor space with the appropriate outdoor flooring that will last a long time, WPC decking is a perfect alternative to traditional timber decks. Made primarily of recycled materials, this sustainable and eco-friendly option that is engineered to deliver great strength and stability is the most practical choice for any outdoor space.
IS WPC DECKING GOOD FOR OUTDOOR SPACES?
Yes. Unlike traditional wood decks, our Tulou WPC decks are splinter-free and meet the Singapore Building and Construction Authority (BCA)’s standards for slip-resistant walking surfaces, making them safe to walk around even without any shoes on. The colours of WPC decks are also designed with highly reflective, inorganic pigments that minimise heat build-up. Resistant to weather elements, you can rest assured that Tulou WPC decking will remain in tip-top condition with minimal deck fading, splintering or warping.
WHICH IS BETTER, WPC OR WOOD DECKING?
Both natural and WPC decking are great decking options but each has its own benefits. Unlike natural wood decking, WPC decking has a longer lifespan. Moreover, the additional robustness and durability offered by the thermal plastic components in the composite material make WPC decking highly resistant to rotting, corrosion, and decay.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WPC AND PLASTIC LUMBER?
While both plastic decks and WPC decks may feature an additional layer of protection within their core to maintain the structural integrity of the deck, the difference in composition between both makes a world of a difference. Since WPC decking combines the best of both natural timber decks and plastic decks, it offers a more natural look. The wood fibres in the composite decking also mean more slip-resistance, reduced expansion and contraction due to temperature changes, and increased rigidity and structural strength.
