Composite Decking
Latest News
Ideas and updates from the TimberTech blog

September has almost come to an end – we know, it’s really flown – and so anyone looking to take advantage of this month’s decking offer had better move quickly!

We’re currently offering a fantastic discount on our beautiful edeck Cedar decking – it usually costs £48.57 per square metre, but if you place your order on this side of October the 1st, you’ll get it for just £33 per square metre. That’s a saving of more than £15 per m2!

The edeck boards are slip-resistant and, like all TimberTech composite decking, spectacularly low-maintenance. Cedar is a beautiful choice of colour, too, with a nice, natural look. It’s just as appealing as timber decking, and far more versatile!

To enquire about ordering our discounted Cedar decking, call 029 2037 1584 or email info@timbertechuk.co.uk today.

When we talk about ‘decking accessories’, we’re usually referring to our CONCEALoc® products – the screws and fasteners that are practically invisible once installed, leaving your flawless new deck unfettered by unsightly fixings.

That, however, is a blog post for another day. Today we’re talking about a different kind of decking accessory – the kind of accessory that looks appealing and adds interest to a space. These decking accessories will really help you to feel at home on your deck.

Right, now that we’ve hacked through the semantics, allow us to share with you some of our favourite decking accessories...

Coloured Lamps
Every deck needs lighting – especially at this time of year, when the nights are starting to draw in – but nobody ever said that lights had to be boring. Top design boffins have harnessed the power of LED lighting to create colourful lamps like the one in the image above. Great for adding a bit of vibrancy to the deck – some of them even change colour! 

 


Bunting
A British favourite – those little triangular flags tend to be our first port of call when decorating the garden. Bunting looks great at any time of year, so why wait for another royal wedding? Get the bunting out and string it up in your outdoor space today.

 

Reclining Chairs
You may have to pay a pretty penny for a recliner that can survive life in the garden (weatherproof armchairs tend not to come cheap!) but if you can get your hands on one, you’ll really, really appreciate the benefits. Just go out into the garden on a sunny evening, glass of wine in hand, and sit back as far as that chair will go...we feel relaxed just thinking about it!

 


Fondue Set
It could be a cheese fondue, or it could be a chocolate fondue like the one in the picture above; either way, it’s hard to imagine the gathering of friends that wouldn’t enjoy having a fondue set at their centre! We’d advise you to place the fondue set on a table or mat of some sort, rather than straight onto the decking – you wouldn’t want to leave a burn mark. Other than that, just make sure everybody’s got a fork and tuck in!

 


Fountain
Finally, we couldn’t finish off this list without mentioning fountains. A water feature will add elegance anywhere it’s placed, and we think that fountains look especially nice on deck. Don’t you agree?

Balcony decking with a sea view

A balcony is something to be treasured – if your house has one, you’ll surely want to make it look as good as it can! There are many ways to beautify a balcony, but we’ve always felt that composite decking is an especially effective option for outdoor spaces above the ground. 

We frequently provide balcony decking for customers throughout the UK, and given how good these balconies end up looking by the time we’re finished with them, balcony projects definitely rank among the most rewarding of all! Just take a look at this beautiful decked balcony in Shoreham:

Love that sea view! Of course, natural-looking deck boards aren’t the only thing we can offer our clients. Every balcony needs a balustrade, and we’ve got plenty of great options on that front, too! Round off your brand new balcony with a gorgeous glass balustrade; you can even get it without the handrail if you’d prefer an uninterrupted view.

A balcony is a peaceful outdoor retreat that offers its owner a beautiful view and a quiet place to relax. We’re of the opinion that decking makes the perfect companion for such a space, and once you’ve seen the beautiful balcony decking that peppers our gallery, we’re pretty sure that you’ll agree.

Did you see Through the Keyhole with Keith Lemon on Saturday night? Did you spot the decking in Bruno Tonioli’s garden, about five minutes into the episode?

That delightful deck – the one just behind Keith Lemon himself in the screenshot above – was provided by none other than TimberTech! The Strictly Come Dancing judge used our VertiGrain decking, and we think it complements that pretty green lawn rather perfectly. 

In case you’re not already acquainted with Through the Keyhole, it involves a panel of celebrities who are shown the house of another mystery celebrity and asked to guess who the house belongs to. The new, Keith Lemon-hosted version is just the latest incarnation of a programme that’s been on our screens since the 1980s; some of you may remember the original version, hosted by the late David Frost and starring Loyd Grossman as the presenter who would show viewers around each house before asking, famously, “who would live in a house like this?”

We were thrilled to see our cedar composite decking pop up on ITV last Saturday, and the best part is that you can give your garden exactly the same treatment as Bruno Tonioli gave his! If you’d like to find out more about our cedar decking - and how you could add it to your outdoor space – get in touch with us today!

Our Reliaboard composite decking offers you an authentic wood experience, but with all the hard-wearing hardiness that you get from Timbertech deck! We’re pretty sure that the main reason people still opt for traditional timber – as opposed to Reliaboard composite decking – is the fact that is it natural. We live in a world where our sofas have to be real leather, and our sparkling wines have to be champagne!

The thing we adore about our Reliaboard composite decking is its unmatched likeness to the flesh of trees – or real wood, if you prefer. We too share your passion for all things authentic, all things genuine, and all things natural; sometimes though, a little compromise can leave you with a much better performing material…

Take our Reliaboard composite decking as an example – it is pretty much indistinguishable from natural wood. Your only concern is that nagging voice that is telling ‘It’s not 100% real’, like you should cast it out of your considerations a result. The truth is though, our composite decking is now made using such perfected techniques that nobody else should be able to pick it out as an ‘imposter’. That is pretty much it; that is the only slight drawback standing between you and your dream decking.

When you start to weigh up that small indifference compared to all the advantages you get from our Reliaboard composite decking, it almost seems irrational to choose anything besides. Our decking is so superior in every other way imaginable, that we urge you to forget about the fact is isn’t 100% natural wood. Furthermore, it does contain wood fibres; our composite decking is made up of hardwood flour and polyethylene using a patented manufacturing process.

The finished result really is something to behold – not only are you left with a beautiful wooden-looking floor surface, but it also has a list of benefits which are real deal-clinchers! Unlike traditional timber decking, our boards do not need any staining or treatment. As soon as they’re laid, they’re ready to face all the punishment our inclement weather can throw at them. This means no warping, no broken boards, and no dedicating large periods of time to regular maintenance!

It is all starting to sound pretty convincing, isn’t it? And, the advantages don’t end here. We back up our promises for the Reliaboard composite decking and its durability with a 25 year warranty! Our decking is not just impervious to water, it also stands up well to heat, and fade. The highly-reflective colour pigments we opt for will also keep it cool, even on summers most scorching days.

Now we’ve started, we’ll finish; our decking is also slip-resistant, and splinter-free. This makes it the safer option, as well being a more weather-resistant, low-maintenance, and durable one. Are you still hung-up on the fact that is isn’t entirely made out of wood?

The truth is, it’s a good thing that this decking isn’t 100% natural wood – if it was, it would come with a whole load of downsides that you don’t get with Reliaboard. What you do have with our decking is an identical-looking wooden surface, that will keep on looking great.
