Decking Installation

When considering decking installation it is important to first survey and evaluate the site conditions and to establish if any planning permissions are required. Depending upon the type of decking structure, or the age of the property planning maybe required, if unsure always check with your local council.

When constructing the deck it is essential to ensure that all structural timbers are treated and built in way to ensure that the deck is fully supported and has sufficient load bearing capacity. The deck boards should be in laid in a manner to take into account the expansion and the contraction of the wood as well as allowing sufficient airflow and drainage.
