Timber Decking & Patio Decking Advice
Decking allows us to extend our home and create from our garden man made patios and decks in timber. This is made from quality redwood generally Scandinavian, there are a range of decking profiles, handrail, spindles, posts and postcaps. The building timber is generally tanalised which is a preservative for timber. This extends the life of the wood by reducing the decay and helping to prevent insect attack.
How to create a deck
– Draw a plan of the area of your garden where you want to position the deck allowing for sunlight, shade etc.
– Remember to allow for correct spans between joists, then plan the correct fixings remembering that the deck is tanalised so please use rustproof nails or screws. Screws are better as they last longer.
– Next check the site, clear away debris. If necessary mark out area to help see what the deck could look like. Remember there are weed control products out there for under your deck.
– From this point onwards please contact a competent builder or decking person and we will help to provide the correct material you require for this site.
