Wooden & Composite Decking

We stock a range of wooden and composite decking, suitable for general domestic or commercial use, together with newels and balustrading if required. In stock is a comprehensive range of fixings and accessories needed to complete your project successfully.

Wooden Decking

There are many types and sizes of wood decking to choose from, with each species of wood looking and ageing differently, with many having  20-year guarantees.
Hardwoods come in a variety of colours, whilst softwood decking is usually a light pine colour, but can be stained to virtually any colour you wish. Try to avoid darker colours as these attract heat from the sun, which can cause problems later
Then there is the hardwood or softwood choice. ’Hard’ and ‘Soft’ refer to the tree type and generally whether they are deciduous or evergreen.  Just to make things a little more complicated, hardwoods aren’t always hard & softwood is not always soft.  Make sure you research your choice well before purchasing.
Both types of wooden decking will need regular cleaning and retreating to extend its lifetime and finish. There’s a whole host of products to help you achieve the finish you want. Do look at any special re-treatment or initial fixing requirements stipulated as part of any guarantee(s) from the decking manufacturer. Special oils and screws/fixings for some species of Hardwood can be very expensive. Cost wise, hardwood installation is generally 2 to 3 times more than softwood.

Composite Decking

Composite decks have certainly come a long way in the last 10 years, being more durable in most ways and many come with 25 to 40-year guarantees. They also come in a variety of materials, colours and finishes for a more modern looking outdoor space. They require very little maintenance vs wood. A lite scrub with a gentle soap and water mix twice a year is all they usually need to stay looking good as new. Some types of composite decking can require special fixing clips or fixings which be expensive. Do make sure these are included in any material quotes you get.  In most cases, the total installation costs of composite decking will be higher than wood.

What’s underneath still counts!

A house is only as strong as its foundations and it’s much the same with decking. Whether you opt for wood or composite, take advice from your local decking supplier or contractor when purchasing the materials for your deck support frame. We have in stock a range of suitable framing timber and our Sales Team can assist in working out your requirements. Don’t be tempted to skimp on the supporting structure or fixings as this can cause problems later on.
Take care with thinner decking.  Cost wise this can look like a good deal, but as this usually needs the support joists to be much closer together to stop the deck “bouncing”,  you may not save as much as you think.
