So, you’ve finally decided to go ahead and purchase composite decking from one of our stunning decking ranges, congratulations on a very wise investment! However, the decision making doesn’t end there. A host of questions still remain now that you have chosen the flooring option for your outdoor living space. To make things easier for you, we’re going to run through a few things that you may want to consider when building your deck.

Location

The location in your outdoor space where your deck is going to be built may already be determined before making your purchase, however, after deciding to choose our composite decking you may think that your new deck may be better suited within a different position. This could be due to our decking complimenting a certain feature or area in your garden, taking advantage of a specific view or to be more or less exposed to the weather and elements. All of these things may impact the location in where your deck may be built.

Installation

The way in which your new deck is going to be installed is another thing you may need to think about. If you have adequate DIY skills, you may decide that you can save time and money by installation your deck boards yourself. If you don’t possess the skills, however, you may decide to utilise our installation fitting service with our team of professional and friendly deck installers, allowing you to sit back and relax while your dream outdoor living space comes to life.

Design, Size & Shape

The design, size and shape of your new deck will be dependent on the location that you decide to build it. Once a decision has been made on where your deck will be built, you can then proceed with choosing the design. This is something that we can also provide assistance with our deck design inspiration and FREE 3D deck design service. Here you are able to view an array of deck designs, including a range of layouts and patterns and then watch see your design come to life by collaborating with our expert team of CAD designers.

Extras: Balustrades, Lighting & Steps

Basic platform decks are by far the simplest to build and offer a classic, clean appearance. If it’s an eye-catching deck that you’re after however, this is something that you may want to avoid. As a result, a multi-level deck may be the deck for you. If this is the case and your deck now sits higher than a few feet off the ground, a balustrade system and steps may be something worth considering. We offer a variety of balustrade, railing systems and steps that not only provide an extra element of safety but also add a stylish touch to your deck. If you plan on utilising your new outdoor space at all times throughout the day and night, installing deck lights may also be an added benefit, allowing and anyone else to see your beautiful new deck no matter the time.

These aren’t all the things that you need to consider when building your deck, but will definitely go a long way in helping you achieve your dream outdoor living space. If you require any further information or assistance with any of the mentioned points or services, then please do not hesitate to contact us today.

While decking is conventionally associated with residential home improvements, it also provides a great outdoor surface for commercial properties, particularly office buildings and complexes.

If your job involves being stuck indoors for hours, it can be great to have a stylish and relaxing outdoor space to retreat to during your break times, allowing you to recharge your energy levels and refresh yourself fully before continuing with your work. Having an attractive outdoor area can also enhance the impression that your visitors and clients get when visiting your establishment, allowing you to extend your professionalism throughout every aspect of your business's presentation. 

A few years ago we were approached by stock exchange platform NASDAQ, to assist in the commercial redesign of their London offices, by providing decking and glass balustrading for a sleek, new roof terrace. Not only did this allow them to create an outdoor space to impress their visitors, it also granted them a long-lasting and easy-to-clean alternative to their previously stained and weather-worn surface.

We have also provided decking for Renewable Energy Systems in the past, in order to create a beautiful, curved walkway outside of their offices in Hertfordshire. As a company dedicated to renewable energy solutions, RES wanted to ensure that the project not only looked good, but was completed in an environmentally-concious way. Thanks to our eco-friendly and energy-saving methods, our decking provided the perfect product to transform their outdoor space, without compromising the company's reputation.

If you'd like to find out more about transforming your office space with TimberTech decking, or if you have any questions about another commercial project, please get in touch with us today!

Deck with bi fold doors

Here at TimberTech, we’re very keen on the idea of creating a seamless transition between the home and the garden. We believe that the garden is as much a part of the home as the kitchen or the bedroom, and we love breaking down the barriers that separate one’s indoor space from one’s outdoor space.

And that’s why we’re so fond of bi-fold doors. Nothing makes the garden feel like a proper part of the home quite like a set of sliding doors; when the weather is warm, there are few greater pleasures than sliding the back doors open and letting the sunshine in!

These images are just a taste of the beauty that can be achieved when you combine TimberTech decking with bi-fold doors. Click here to see our complete gallery. 

Here at TimberTech, we pride ourselves on the quality of our composite decking, and if you read our reviews you will see that we most certainly do not disappoint our customers! However, occasionally we think it’s important to show you why our lovely customers are so satisfied, and why TimberTech’s reputation is indisputable.

The Case Studies section of our website details lots of examples of our fantastic composite decking in action in various locations around the UK, but our latest is really quite special, so we thought we’d tell you a bit about it.

This is our Michaelston case study where Mr Davies transformed his Michaelston-le-Pit property with the help of TimberTech. After receiving some free samples of our EasyClean Terrain+ Silver Maple and a visit from our in-house architect, plans to completely transform the property were well under way!

Mr Davies ended up with a new deck made from our Silver Maple-coloured composite decking boards and some frameless glass balustrades fitted to his new decking, to provide a chic and sophisticated finish, completely transforming the appearance of his home.

If you want to breathe some life into your outdoor space but you’re not sure how, why not give us a call on 029 2037 1584 and we’ll see what we can do for you. Alternatively, request a free sample to check out the quality for yourself! 

When it comes to choosing the right material for your outdoor deck you are inundated with different options. The decision-making process can be a little overwhelming: do I want PVC, plastic or composite decking? What are they and what is the difference between the three? This guide aims to answer all of your questions about PVC, plastic and composite decking, helping you find the right decking material for your project with ease.

Plastic Decking

The primary benefit of plastic decking is its low-maintenance nature. This synthetic decking option requires little to no looking after, and once it’s laid down your job is pretty much over. Having said this, plastic decking cannot provide the gorgeous natural look and feel of natural wooden decking and often comes in a limited shade range, so while you might be getting a low-maintenance decking choice you are likely compromising the aesthetic qualities of your garden too.

  • Low maintenance option
  • Not as aesthetically pleasing as wood/composite
  • Water resistant but slippery in wet conditions

PVC Decking

PVC decking is considered to be slightly more sophisticated than plastic decking (despite it coming under the plastic family). It is made entirely from polyvinyl chloride, an incredibly hard and strong plastic, so requires little to no maintenance after installation. PVC decking offers significant fade, stain and mould resistance and a number of varying colour options providing a more diverse choice than plastic decking, but still doesn't have the gorgeous wooden deck feel that most people prefer. 

  • Likely to be the most expensive option
  • Artificial finish
  • Water resistant but slippery in wet conditions

Composite Decking

Composite decking is made partially from plastic but contains a blend of wood and polymer to imitate the gorgeous earthy tones of wood decking with the moisture resistance of plastic decking. As well as looking the part, composite decking is easy to maintain and is close to natural wood in the way it feels underfoot - providing excellent grip! It is an environmentally-friendly option, with its wood and plastic components often saved from landfill sites. Composite decking is often easier to work with and install than plastic decking because it behaves more like wooden decking. 

  • Easy to work with
  • Excellent slip-resistance and moisture resistant
  • Similar in appearance to wood decking

So when it comes to choosing your garden deck, it might seem like you’re inundated with choice, but really, there is only one answer: composite decking. If you’re still not entirely convinced then why not browse our composite decking range, order a sample and observe and feel the high-quality and aesthetically pleasing properties of TimberTech decking for yourself!
