The composite decking that we provide to our customers is beautiful, of course, but those wonderful wooden boards would be useless without an array of decking accessories holding them together. The screws, fasteners and joists are what turn that pile of boards into your own relaxing wooden haven, and while the gorgeous composite decking will always be the focus, we realise that the tools that go with it are just as important.
We only use top quality decking accessories here at TimberTech, and from essential parts like the fasteners to extras like fascia and weed suppressant, we make sure that every aspect of every deck we sell adheres to our high standards. Good composite decking is something of an art, and we do everything we can to ensure that even the smallest of decking accessories are up to snuff.
Still, if we put all of those joists and screws on display, they would probably make the decking itself look a little bit messy. That’s why we try to keep the decking accessories hidden – fasteners are a necessity for any composite decking, but that doesn’t mean they have to be visible! We use CONCEALoc® Hidden Fasteners, which do a great job of holding everything together but don’t get in the way of your lovely composite decking.
So if you want your decking accessories to be just as good as the deck you’re accessorising, TimberTech will ensure that every little part of your composite decking is perfect.
If you’re trying to design your dream deck, our decking planner services can help you to create a space that suits your home and your needs.
Once you’ve had a look at our site and shortlisted some products and colours,you can use our online deck designer to create your ideal deck.
Just choose the shape, colour and pattern of your deck and our decking planner will work out exactly what you need to order. If you want to get some inspiration before you start, have a look at the galleries on our site and see some real-life decks from our customers’ homes.
If you’re still not sure about your design, or you have a bigger space that’s difficult to design for, you can go to step two of our decking planner services – our 3D design service. Our in-house decking planner will chat about your requirements, and then produce a 3D deck design so you can have a really good idea of what the finished product will look like.
With this service, you can try out different designs, products and colour schemes until you find something that you like – it couldn’t be simpler.
Happy customer Chris Johnson from Purfleet used the service. He said: “I needed quite a large deck that incorporated a slope and went around two sides of my house, so it was hard to work out what I needed. The 3D decking planner service was great. We measured up, chatted about what colours we liked and what we needed from the deck, then the designer gave us a few designs to look at. We went back and forth and tweaked the design a few times until we settled on something that we liked – brilliant service! We got the decking installed in the Spring and we’ve spent so much time outdoors this summer.”
Decking isn't just for summer, and just because the leaves are turning orange doesn't mean your deck has to go into hibernation until March. A deck makes a great place to relax no matter what time of year it is, and popping out onto the decking every once in a while is a great way to combat the cooped-up winter blues.
Some decking requires a great deal of preparation for winter; staining, sealing, and several other procedures are needed to reinforce the wood against the elements. Composite decking, of course, is far more durable, and as long as you keep it clean and tidy, you can rest assured that your deck will still be in top condition when spring finally rolls around.
So whether we get an Indian summer or just a long, cold winter, there'll always be time to stand out on your deck and watch the seasons change. Autumn, with its distinctive colours and smells, is a beautiful time of year, so make sure you get out of the house every once in a while and experience it.
If you’re looking for hardwood decking boards, why not have a look at TimberTech’s range of composite decking? Although hardwood decking boards can look absolutely stunning, they need an awful lot of maintenance to stay looking so stunning. Then there’s the environmental impact of chopping down all those trees.
TimberTech, however, gives you all the benefits of hardwood decking boards, but without the downsides: no scrubbing, sanding, warping, splitting, varnishing – and extra green points too!
Here are four very good reasons to choose TimberTech over hardwood decking boards:
1. Looks just like the real thing
It’s hard to tell TimberTech from the real thing - our boards look just as good as their real wood counterparts!
2. Easy to fit
You don’t need specialist tools to fit TimberTech. It even comes with a grooved edge and hidden fastener system, so it’s simple to install and has no visible fastenings. And as it’s made from wood composite, there aren’t any knots so there’s no wastage.
3. Less work = more leisure
With TimberTech, there’s no need to invest time and money in keeping your decking boards looking good. While hardwood decking boards need stripping, cleaning and oiling regularly, all TimberTech needs is a quick jet wash once in a while, buying you more time to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.
4. Greener and cleaner
With tropical forests under threat, could your conscience cope with splashing out on tropical hardwood decking boards? TimberTech is made from waste wood from the furniture industry, so we save literally tons of wood from going to landfill. This wood is ground into ‘wood flour’, mixed with polymer and used to produce our decking. And the zero-maintenance qualities mean you won’t be using chemicals to clean and treat your deck either.
If you want to give your deck a stylish, modern edge, installing a glistening glass balustrade around the perimeter is a great way to go about it. A glass balustrade from TimberTech will endow your outdoor living space with a sleek, ultra-contemporary look and, like tying a ribbon around a gift, it makes a lovely finishing touch for your decking.
The clear glass panels of a glass balustrade don't block out any light, ensuring that your decking is superbly lit and that you have a great view of your garden. The clean, straight vertical lines of the balustrade complement the lines of the decking perfectly, and together they will make your outdoor living space look as beautiful as it can be!
So give your deck the gift of a glass balustrade. It's the perfect way to round off your decking, and it gives your garden the feel of a truly modern outdoor living space.
