Plymouth Quality Decking can provide 3 main options when choosing your decking materials. Each one has its own unique feel and finish and also has its own pros and cons. obviously we will discuss the options when our decking fitters visit your property for our no obligation survey.
The extensive variety of quality softwood decking sheets gives numerous colour and design choices. Most of our softwood decking sheets have a 15 year guarantee against rotting and woodworm. They are made from grade softwood and additive pre-treated with Tanalith E Extra that gives the decking sheets a shield against water corrosion. You can browse our contemporary smooth to stylish scored profiles.
Hardwoods used for decking include Ipe, Massaranuba and Yellow Balau. We sometimes also use Cumaru, Teak and Iroko. Hardwoods have their own unique characteristics and people are attracted to them for their deep, dark colours. These of course will need regular maintenance to keep those striking shades and due to the nature of the wood it is harder to work with than softwood. The build time is slighter longer and more specialist tools are needed for the preparation.
