If you're thinking about adding a deck with built-in lights to your garden, you're probably wondering if they'll get hot when they're switched on. After all, most lights get hot when they're on, so deck lights must do too - right? Well, not exactly. Our deck lights are LEDs which means they're unlikely to be hot to the touch when they're switched on.
A veranda (sometimes called a canopy) makes a superb addition to any garden deck. Not only do these stylish structures boost the visual appeal of your outdoor living space, they also provide shelter from rain, meaning that you can continue enjoying your deck when the weather turns bad.
Composite decking and verandas are perfect together - scroll down to see some fabulous photos of our deck boards alongside sleek glass verandas.
All verandas supplied by SunSpaces.
The striking grey veranda adds an extra dimension to this outdoor area. And it's as functional as it is fetching - we all love to sit outside in the garden on a sunny day, but thanks to their veranda, the owners of this property can curl up with a cup of tea and enjoy their outdoor space even when it's raining.
If you're someone who likes the idea of natural wood but can't face the hours of upkeep it demands, you're in the right place! Here at TimberTech, we offer a wide range of composite decking that's been manufactured to look and feel just like real wood but requires a fraction of the maintenance.
People often ask us - which composite decking looks the most like real wood? We have some composite deck boards that look more like wood than others, mostly due to the colour of the boards. So, if you want to see which of our composite decking ranges look most like real wood, just keep reading.
If you were disappointed about not getting a dose of sun abroad this year, your prayers may have been answered. According to a recent Sky News report:
"The Met Office has issued amber and yellow thunderstorm warnings for large parts of central and southern England. It comes after it issued its first-ever extreme heat warning, in place from Monday afternoon through to Thursday night, when temperatures are expected to drop."
While most of us are glad to see a bit of sunshine, this extreme weather warning is in place to remind us of the dangers of high temperatures. There are a whole host of problems that can occur when the weather gets hot, so it's important that you know how to stay cool outdoors during a heatwave. Take a look at our hints and tips to help keep you safe if you're sitting out in the heat this week!
One of the great things about TimberTech's range of high-quality decking is its longevity. Our boards can withstand years of use while still providing a premium look that makes your outdoor space stand out.
Recently, we received a surprising but very welcome email from a customer in Oxfordshire who installed TimberTech decking boards on his property over a decade ago!
