Do you have an outdoor area that could be enhanced using TimberTech’s Deck Lights? We bet you do! To help you feel inspired we have put together some decking light ideas that we think would look beautiful in lots of different gardens.

Mood lighting

If you’ve had a chance to take a look at our range of deck lights you might already know that they are available in five different colours making them perfect for creating different atmospheres in your garden.

Amber – Amber would be an excellent choice if you want to achieve a romantic, soft, atmosphere on your decking or surrounding areas. The would also be a great choice if you are worried about upsetting neighbours with bright lights on your property.

Green – would beautifully compliment a garden filled with greenery – the green light is less harsh than white lights, for example, and would accentuate the lush natural tones in your garden.

Red – While red might seem a little unorthodox, we think that red lights would be a great choice for stairs, steps or any other hazardous outdoor places. Installing these deck lights could help prevent falls or accidents.

White – White lights are a very popular choice of decking light; white lights are timeless and appropriate for all occasions. These lights would be excellent if you have especially dark areas of decking area or garden that you would like to use at night time.

Blue – Blue lights look stunning when they’re installed around any outdoor area, but they look especially appropriate around bodies of water such as a pool or pond.

Multicolour – Of course, if you’re feeling brave, why not have a variety of our different coloured deck lights installed to create a unique look in your garden? Perfect if you like to host parties or if you’re a little indecisive about which colour would suit your garden best!

All of our deck lights are available in two finishes – clear lenses for directional light or frosted lenses for a more diffused effect. Both equally beautiful!

The Specifics

Our lights are all IP67 rated, meaning they can be fully submerged in water – so no need to worry about them getting damaged when it rains.

We’ve also eliminated the need to go outside to switch on your deck lights, they can all be operated remotely using an on/off key fob.

Each light is made with 319 marine grade stainless steel so it should last you a lifetime – and just in case you have any problems with your deck lights, all of them come with a 2-year warranty!

So, what’s stopping you?

So, you’ve finally decided to go ahead and purchase composite decking from one of our stunning decking ranges, congratulations on a very wise investment! However, the decision making doesn’t end there. A host of questions still remain now that you have chosen the flooring option for your outdoor living space. To make things easier for you, we’re going to run through a few things that you may want to consider when building your deck.

Location

The location in your outdoor space where your deck is going to be built may already be determined before making your purchase, however, after deciding to choose our composite decking you may think that your new deck may be better suited within a different position. This could be due to our decking complimenting a certain feature or area in your garden, taking advantage of a specific view or to be more or less exposed to the weather and elements. All of these things may impact the location in where your deck may be built.

Installation

The way in which your new deck is going to be installed is another thing you may need to think about. If you have adequate DIY skills, you may decide that you can save time and money by installation your deck boards yourself. If you don’t possess the skills, however, you may decide to utilise our installation fitting service with our team of professional and friendly deck installers, allowing you to sit back and relax while your dream outdoor living space comes to life.

Design, Size & Shape

The design, size and shape of your new deck will be dependent on the location that you decide to build it. Once a decision has been made on where your deck will be built, you can then proceed with choosing the design. This is something that we can also provide assistance with our deck design inspiration and FREE 3D deck design service. Here you are able to view an array of deck designs, including a range of layouts and patterns and then watch see your design come to life by collaborating with our expert team of CAD designers.

Extras: Balustrades, Lighting & Steps

Basic platform decks are by far the simplest to build and offer a classic, clean appearance. If it’s an eye-catching deck that you’re after however, this is something that you may want to avoid. As a result, a multi-level deck may be the deck for you. If this is the case and your deck now sits higher than a few feet off the ground, a balustrade system and steps may be something worth considering. We offer a variety of balustrade, railing systems and steps that not only provide an extra element of safety but also add a stylish touch to your deck. If you plan on utilising your new outdoor space at all times throughout the day and night, installing deck lights may also be an added benefit, allowing and anyone else to see your beautiful new deck no matter the time.

These aren’t all the things that you need to consider when building your deck, but will definitely go a long way in helping you achieve your dream outdoor living space. If you require any further information or assistance with any of the mentioned points or services, then please do not hesitate to contact us today.

composite

 

Here at TimberTech, we specialise in more than just high-quality, low-maintenance decking – we also happen to know a thing or two about installing composite decking rails.

Whether you already have a decking or are getting a deck installed, adding a handrail to the edge of your decked area has benefits both practically and aesthetically. Installing a composite decking rail looks great and can help prevent any unfortunate falls – particularly important if your decking covers a raised area.

So, if you’ve never fit a handrail before and want to get an idea of what to expect, you’ve come to the right place! All of TimberTech’s decking rails are made to be as simple as possible to fit – because we like making your life easier.

 To help you along the way, we’ve put together a basic checklist of things to consider when installing a composite decking rail:  

Pick your material

Before we can get into how to fit your decking handrail, you first need to select the material you want – TimberTech offers a deck handrail or a sturdy aluminium railing depending on the look you’re after. Both are incredibly low-maintenance and look great!

Plan ahead

Installing a composite decking rail can be tricky business without the proper prep. It may sound obvious, but it’s important you take the time to carefully plan exactly where you’ll feature the handrail on your composite decking – do you want it around the whole perimeter or just the one side? Use your measurements to order the decking handrail in a quantity that meets your specs.

Secure your posts

Secure the base posts of your decking handrail in the selected corners, these act as the foundation of your decking rail – the rest of your handrail will be assembled around these. Use the baseplates to keep the posts secure, it’s important your posts and baseplates are in the correct place before you permanently fix them here – if they are the wrong distance apart it can throw off the rest of your measurements!  

The Handrail

Secure the ‘corner connectors’ to the top of your posts – the handrail will be connected between these. Go along the length of the decking, securing corner connectors and adding the handrail between them till your handrail runs as desired between all of the posts.

Extra Details

While you should now have the basic outline of your decking handrail, a lot of the finer installation details will depend on the specific composite decking rail you have decided upon. Generally, the next thing to do will involve slotting the extra posts into place between your corner posts – whatever the next step, with TimberTech the installation process should never be too difficult, so get out those instructions and finish off your handrail!

fit

We hope these handy tips on how to fit a decking handrail have made the whole task seem far less daunting! But, if you’re feeling unsure, or are simply too busy to undertake the decking rail installation yourself, you can always make use of our team. They install decking professionally, it will be no bother for them to install your handrail for you! Hit the button below to find out more!

One of the fantastic aspects of TimberTech's composite deck boards is the longevity and durability that they provide. With the ability to last for such a long time, there is no wonder why we provide a 30-year warranty on all of our composite decking boards, ensuring both quality and reliability and giving you the ease of mind that you will not have to replace your deck soon after getting it installed.

To illustrate this, take a look at the infographic we have made to show the journey over the 30-year warranty. (click on the infographic to expand)

Infographic Transcript

We offer a 30-year warranty on our composite decking boards! But let's put that in real terms. Imagine a beautiful baby boy named Dec was born on the same day you TimberTech decking was fitted. A lot can change over the course of 30 years, but as you're about to see, TimberTech decking can stand the test of time!

Baby Dec is crawling and learning to walk! - Still looking 10/10 - the deck boards show no signs of damage or splintering

4 Years Old

Walking and talking, Dec is off for his first day of primary school - Your TimberTech deck is still looking great, plus it's slip-resistant which is ideal for kids

11 Year Old

Primary school all done and dusted, Dec is about to start secondary school - Still in tip-top shape. Guests frequently compliment your 'new' decking. You explain you've had it 11 years

17 Years Old 

Dec is revising for his A-levels and deciding what to study at uni - Your new deck endured a cold, snowy winter and still looks amazing

21 Years Old

Dec graduates from university and hosts a garden party to celebrate - Despite being tested by many parties and social events, your TimberTechdecking is still beautiful and scratch-free

Dec has a new job and comes back home to visit with his girlfriend - A quarter of a century later, and your TimberTech decking is still free from splintering, warping and rot
