Timber Decking

Timber is one of the most popular choices for decking installations. Clearly, nothing beats the natural beauty of wood more so as it ages. Timber comes in two different types – hardwood and softwood. The material you choose has a great impact on the durability and aesthetics of your garden decking.

To determine which among these types of timber will work best for your design and budget, here’s a quick guide:

Softwood

Decking boards made from softwood timber come in different colours and finishes. They provide seamless options to match every decking design. This material, however, may not be very reliable when used outdoors.

Softwood decking may truly be aesthetically pleasing, but it can’t withstand the drastic changes in temperature, moisture, water, and the heavy traffic. Nevertheless, this is an economical decking solution as it is way cheaper than the other decking materials available today.

Hardwood

Furniture made from hardwood exudes that luxurious and classy appeal. How much more when they are used for the garden decking? Hardwood truly stands out as every piece is unique. This material combines durability and beauty in one, which is why it is one of the top choices for decking installation.

Hardwood is extremely durable and perfect for the outdoor decking. But all these amazing features do not come cheap. Hardwood decking boards are quite pricey. Nevertheless, you can rely on its toughness and longevity. If you are aiming to enjoy your garden decking for a long, long time, then pick hardwood. Cumaru, iroko, teak, and ipe are among the most commonly used hardwoods for decking.

Composite Decking
Made from wood wastes and recycled plastics, composite decking boards are the most eco-friendly among all. Available in a variety of styles, colours, and finishes, composite decking boards make a better alternative to hardwood. Moreover, these materials are easy to install and can compete with hardwood when it comes to durability.

Composite decking boards also offer that look and feel of the hardwood although it can never really outperform the natural ones with its timeless beauty. Nevertheless, composite decks are sustainable, and no trees were cut to manufacture them. And the good news – composite decking is kid and pet-friendly.

Building a decking in the UK will cost you on average £1,000 to £2,200. However, the cost could go lower or higher depending on the type of decking material you choose and condition of the area where the structure will be built because it will determine the number of people needed to perform the tasks.  Hardwood decking can be more expensive than the other types, especially when its premium quality. Meanwhile, softwood decking is the cheapest one to install.

Timber or Composite Decking: Which is better?

Both timber and composite are both great options for building garden decks or outdoor decks. Each has its own special features that the other might not have. For example, hardwood decking boards are known for its superb strength and natural aesthetics. However, they are not cheap at all.

On the other hand, composite decking boards may not be as sturdy as its hardwood counterpart, but it offers seamless options for designs and styles can work perfectly with any themes and designs. Depending on the quality of composite boards, prices can be cheaper or similar to that of the hardwood decking.

Can decking be installed in sloped surfaces?
Yes, definitely. In fact, decking is a brilliant solution to utilise the sloped area of the garden. Decking can be customised, and it lies in the hands of your contractor on how they can fit in the installation into the area.
How long will my garden decking last?

How long the decking will last basically depends on the kind of material used to build it. Hardwood decking or those pre-treated varieties can last up to 15 years or even more. 

How many days does it take to construct a decking?
A typical decking installation for a 15-square meter area may require 1 to 2 days to complete. Areas with the same size but with lots of existing installations or deep-rooted trees that need to be removed or excavated, however, may need more days. The skills and technology of the builders and the number of people working on the tasks should also be considered.
Can I build a decking over pavers?

Yes, it is okay to build a decking over an existing paving.  Your contractor must make sure, though, that the legs of the decking are securely installed on the ground and on the paving to avoid moving of the decking.

Which is better: decking or paving?
Paving and decking are both great means to spruce up your outdoor space. However, when it comes to overall costs of the project, decking is way cheaper. Plus, decking is a simple installation that can be done in a matter of days and it can be installed in almost all shapes and sizes of surfaces.
How do I maintain my decking?
Different types of decking material require different means of cleaning. Always make sure that you are only using cleaning products recommended by the deck builders or the decking board manufacturers.

Additionally, do regular checking of surfaces for chips, dents, and scratches and fix them before the damages get worse and cause injuries. Don’t use too much pressure when using pressure washers. It could strip off finishes and damage surfaces.

Can my decking have a hot tub?
This is possible but the decking must be sturdy enough to support the weight of the tub. If you want to have a hot tub installed in the decking, talk to a professional deck builder to know more about your options.
Is a floating deck better than a fixed decking?
Choosing between having a floating deck or a fixed decking can be very challenging. Both installations will surely boost your property’s aesthetic appeal and functionality. However, there are some factors you need to know first before you finally pick the one.
Floating decking is installed separately from your home. It means it is detached and considered as a different structure. You can build it in your garden with any designs and shapes you like as long as your space accommodates it. It may, however, require some tedious amount of maintenance.
On the other hand, fixed decking is a structure attached to your house. You can easily match it to the design of your home, and you can even have it enclosed by a screen so no insects or pests can get in. But the drawbacks of having so is that it can be very expensive and it requires building permit since it is attached to your home.
