Decking projects have just become exciting in Derby and the Midlands, with the choice of products on todays market you are sure to be able to find a decking board to suit your lifestyle, budget and maintenance requirements. It has also got a bit tougher to choose which board to go for as the range of options open to you are huge.
You no longer have a simple choice of either softwood or hardwood for your decking project but you now have softwood impregnated with linseed oil to increase longevity, and now composite decking which comes in a huge range of colours & textures and they are beautiful.
Softwood is the base model and with an approximate lifespan of 5 years depending on how you look after it , it could be a good stop gap option if funds aren’t available. Hardwood is a much better option and I always suggest, if budget allows to stretch to hardwood as it will last much longer if treated regularly. Composite decking is perfect for those wanting a low maintenance option, as once laid you can almost forget about the decking other than a quick brush and hose down.
Composite decking comes with a manufactured guarantee for 10-25 years depending on the manufacturer. They are fade, stain, scratch and mould resistant, rot resistant, UV resistant, slip resistant and some are 95% recycled board so great for the environment. Composite decking is also maintenance free and once installed you can sit back and relax and enjoy your new deck.
We have the experience and knowledge of installing any choice of decking whether that’s softwood or composite, on level ground or in gardens that have a gradient which makes installing a patio difficult.
We work alongside an environmental and civil engineering company which has allowed us to pull on expertise on installing decking and boardwalks over and beside water courses and if it is required to install from the water then we can facilitate this through the use of floating pontoons.
