Wood is a natural product and wood fibres are thus subject to natural colour variations.

This is also the case with Norddeck decking boards, which contain 60% conifer fibres and thus also exhibit such natural variations in tone.

The surface of Norddeck boards tends to be smoother than that of timber boards, but the effect is more natural than that of plastic. The wood fibres in WPC boards are, like natural wood, subject to the weathering effects attributable to exposure to sunlight, rain and wind. But in contrast with timber boards, Norddeck WPC boards tend to retain more colour intensity during the natural greying process, while the effects of weathering even give them a more natural appearance. The colour tone of Norddeck  boards stabilises after exposure for about 12 months and this tone, unlike that of timber boards, does not need to be maintained by means of treatment with maintenance oils.

Over time, there will be a gradual change in the colour tone of Norddeck  decking boards, but their colour will stabilise after exposure to the elements for about 12 months. Examples of decking after exposure:
