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!
Homeowners that choose to install a composite deck do so after quite some deliberation.

In this blog, we take a look at the deep cleaning requirements of composite decking and the things you'll need to do to keep your deck in tip-top shape!
