We've yet another successful project to report today, but where the cable rail in Pembrokeshire was a simple supply job - that is, the customer purchased the rail from us and installed it himself - the service we supplied this time was far more comprehensive. Not only did we supply the materials for this deck, we designed and installed it as well!

The customers this time were Mr and Mrs Snelling, who own a Bed & Breakfast on the outskirts of Bridgend. However, it wasn't the guest rooms they were looking to revamp; it was their own private balcony, on the top floor of the building. They wanted to have a place to relax on their own, away from the hustle and bustle of running an accommodation business. They decided that TimberTech composite decking would be perfect for transforming their tired old deck, and that's why they got in touch.

The first step was designing the deck, and so we introduced the Snellings to Phil, our in-house decking architect. He listened to their ideas and created a 3D decking design to give them an idea of how the finished project would look. Here's what Phil came up with:

This initial design was created with Silver Maple+ decking in mind, but the customers eventually decided that they would prefer Brown Oak decking from our EasyClean range. They found the natural look more appealing, and they opted for a cedar-coloured ornamental handrail to match.

Once these decisions had been finalised, the only thing left to do was to build the deck! This is where our deck installation team came in, and as per usual, they did sterling work. Here's what the finished deck looked like: 

We think the new balcony looks lovely (especially with those planters!) and judging by the comments we received from Mrs Snelling, it sounds like she and her husband agree!

"The space has been completely transformed into a private haven, just for us. We are really pleased with the result - it looks lovely, and many people have been admiring our decked seating area!"

No matter what kind of service you want, TimberTech will also come through for you. If, like Simon Kiff of Pembrokeshire, you just need us to supply the goods, we're more than happy to do so. Conversely, if you want the full package - design, supply, and installation, just like Mr and Mrs Snelling - we'd be thrilled to hear from you, too! Call 029 2037 1584 or email info@timbertechuk.co.uk to get your project underway.

The weather may not be at its best right now, but mid-January is actually the perfect time to start planning your dream deck. Why? Because it will soon be springtime, and that's when you'll want to come out from under your duvet and spend some quality outdoor time with your friends.

And what better place to hang out than on a gorgeous TimberTech deck in your back garden? If you want your dream deck to be completed by the time the sun comes out, it's best to start planning it now. The first thing to do is take a look at your garden's current state and think about where your TimberTech deck could go - you could build it right up against your home as a kind of outdoor extension, or you could put it right up the other end of the garden and use it as your own personal relaxation zone. It's always nice to have a place where you can get away from the stresses of the day!

Once you've got a basic idea for your TimberTech deck, it's time to come to us! Have a browse of our website first to see what kind of decking ranges are available, and then contact TimberTech to discuss getting your project started. We'll help you through every step of your decking installation, and your beautiful springtime relaxation spot will be ready to use before you know it.

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.”

Most of us aren’t blessed with huge gardens these days, so more and more people are looking for interesting garden designs for small gardens.

And with so many websites, TV programmes and magazines on garden design, the possibilities are endless. When planning garden designs for small gardens, many people don’t consider decking as an option, but in fact, incorporating a deck into a smaller garden is a simple, stylish way to create a low-maintenance area for relaxing, dining, entertaining… or whatever else you want to use your outdoor space for.
