Types and Benefits

Decking has become increasingly popular with the rise of garden design programmes and a growing interest in extending living space outdoors.

Good decking is a stylish addition to a property, with finishes to suit different types of architecture. It blends well with the environment and should last for years, giving excellent value for money.

If opting for timber, only high grade specialist decking products should be used. Choices include Southern Yellow Pine, Western Red Cedar and various high quality hardwoods including Cumaru, Iroko and Ipe which are an attractive investment. Timber can be stained or painted if desired.

Composite decking is now widespread and offers the benefits of long life with minimal maintenance. Different colours and finishes are available.

Featured Company - Wallbarn

Decking is an attractive and practical choice for roof terraces, and Wallbarn’s hardwood decking tiles are ideally suited for this application. Used with the company’s ASP support pads, they combine the warmth and attractiveness of natural timber with the ease of laying paving slabs.

Wallbarn’s hardwood decking tiles are available in a choice of timbers chosen for their beauty and durability. They are highly resistant to mildew and insect attack and ideal to withstand the British weather. The superior quality means the grain is smooth and uniform for ease of working. Each tile features a reinforcing bar on the underside made of the same strong wood as the top. The tiles can be laid straight or in a chequerboard pattern.

Wallbarn is a fully accredited member of the Forest Stewardship Council and has FSC® Chain of Custody certification number SGS-COC-007242. The company can supply FSC 100% certified timber.

Having supplied hardwood timber decking for projects ranging from small domestic roof terraces to large public areas, Wallbarn is highly experienced and able to advise on the best designs and products. Visit the website for information and contact details.
