Consider Composite decking to replace a tired old patio or even instead of regular softwood decking.
It will be more expensive per square metre but it will be easier on little feet – no splinters, it will also look after itself, with no need for re-staining and all fixings are hidden from sight.
It needs only a regular wood framework to sit on.
We recommend Trex they will provide samples for free and we consider them the best on the market.
Take a look this recent project and how we utilised Trex deck boards to surround a swimming pool, due to it being impervious to water, it’s more effective than hard or soft wood deck boards.
