TimberTech's composite decking installation experts are currently hard at work building a brand new deck in Cardiff. They've been sending over photos of the job as they do it, and we thought we'd share them with you to give you an idea of how a TimberTech deck comes to life!
This is how all of our decks begin: a skeleton, waiting for those beautiful boards to be laid on top! Raised decking is relatively rare in the UK, so the finished structure (which will wrap right the way around our client's house) will really stand out from the crowd.
By the time this photo was taken, our boys had started to lay the boards - our decking is a lovely colour, isn't it?
Things were really starting to take shape by this point. Those posts are part of an ornamental handrail (also in Cedar, so as to match the decking) that will be placed around the edge of the finished deck.
As we mentioned earlier, this is a raised deck, and our installation specialists have included a set of stairs that will allow people to access the deck from ground level. Don't those steps look beautiful? We love how seamlessly they transition into the deck itself.
If you live in Cardiff or the surrounding area and you want to add a deck to your property, why not do what this client did and visit our outdoor living showroom? It's only a short walk from the centre of Cardiff; alternatively, you can give us a call on 029 2037 1584 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your decking project.
Spring is here, and the weather has taken a very welcome turn for the best! With the sun finally out, now is the perfect time to spend a little quality time on your deck; here are a few ideas for how best to spend these sunny days:
- Host an outdoor dinner party: Given how few opportunities we Brits get to do so, it's easy to forget how nice it is to eat outdoors. An al fresco dinner party is spectacularly easy to set up - just place a table and a few chairs on the deck and you're ready to go! Bring your food out from the kitchen course by course, or - if you don't feel like cooking - buy a selection of picnic food and have your own outdoor buffet!
- Have some drinks on the deck: Now that the evenings are getting warmer, you and your friends should have plenty of opportunities to crack open a bottle and watch the sun go down. Wine always tastes better when you're drinking it outdoors!
- A spot of sunbathing: It's hard to resist catching a few rays when there are actually rays to catch! A deck makes the perfect place to sprawl on a lounger with a good book, a magazine, or just a pair of sunglasses and the fresh air!
If you don't have a deck, don't worry - there's still time to transform your garden in time for summer! Click here to order a free sample of TimberTech's composite decking, or contact us to find out more about what we can do for you and your outdoor space.
