Raised decking

A lot of our customers call or email asking our advice on how to build raised decking. Many people think that decking is only suitable for flat gardens, and might be difficult to fit on a slope or a raised surface.

Fortunately, that's not true. We've fitted our decking on the steepest of slopes and the highest of balconies. Here, we tackle some of the common myths that people encounter when thinking about how to build raised decking.

Myth #1: Decking is only suitable for flat gardens.

We've had so many customers with sloping gardens ask us how to build raised decking. Many of them doubt that it's possible, but rest assured, it is!

Have a look at our decking galleries for lots of real-life examples of our boards in action. You'll see raised decking in all kinds of situations, from raised porches on park homes to decks with steps in sloping gardens. No matter what type of garden you have or what decking you fancy, we can help you find a solution that works with your space and requirements.

Myth #2: You can't use decking on balconies.

Nope - quite the opposite. Decking technology has come a long way in recent years, and all of our decking boards are suitable for use on balconies and roof terraces.

Myth #3: Decking has to be flat against the ground.

No - raise it up, we say! Shape steps out of decking for your sloping garden. Build a balcony and enjoy the elevated view. Add a surround to your hot tub and sip bubbly under the stars. Treat your holiday home to a veranda and enjoy relaxing in the great outdoors.

Composite decking isn’t just for homes. We at TimberTech have undertaken a wide range of commercial decking work for all kinds of purposes, and we’re always ready to take on new commercial decking projects!

If you want to see what kind of projects we have completed in the past, our case studies page contains several examples of our commercial decking work. Particular highlights include the renovation of Tenby Lifeboat Station, and the addition of composite decking to a pair of care homes in South Yorkshire.

TimberTech composite decking can be used in any number of situations. We can provide play places for Schools & Nurseries, decks for Mobile Homes, outdoor dining areas for Hotels, Cafés and Pubs, and much more. 

These are just a few ideas; we are happy to hear from any potential clients with a commercial decking project for us to consider. Composite decking looks fantastic in any setting, and the long-life, low-maintenance nature of our decks mean that you’ll save a lot of money in the long term. If you wish to get in touch with us regarding a commercial decking project you have in mind, please don’t hesitate to email us at or phone us on 02920 371584. There is also a simple enquiry form on our Contact page, so if you’d prefer you can fill that out and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

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.
