Have you ever gone around your friend’s house and admired their luxurious decking in their garden? Timber Decking has been trending for sometime now and gives a garden that wow factor that many home owners now covet, not to mention it increases the value of your home. RG Contractors have been creating garden decking for our clients since 2007 and are highly skilled at creating bespoke state-of-the-art decking.
We are here to adapt to the customer and their needs, some may want understated decking that blends in rather than stands out and others may want it to be the centre piece of their garden, the main attraction so to speak.
We create many different types of decking and below are the most popular types that customers request us to install:
Pressure-treated Wood Decking
Made of fir permeated with anti-rot and insecticide agents, pressure-treated decking is a popular inexpensive choice with our customers. The wood is adaptable according to preference because the basic tan or brown colour of pressure-treated decking can be enhanced with stain. Pressure-treated is durable and can last for decades, but you need to remember to re-seal it every year.
The undeniable attractiveness of this genuine wood is without comparison. In addition, this long lasting decking is another favourite as well as low costing. The darker-shaded type of heartwood is best; anything else is sapwood and will only last a few years due to rotting problems. Be expecting to annual refinish to decking and a life of 15 to 20 years
Redwood is on the more expensive side of the decking market, although it is value for money because it is lightweight, strong, and easy to work with. The darker-coloured heartwood is naturally rot-resistant. With regular maintenance, redwood will last 15 to 20 years.
Made of wood fibre combined with recycled polyethylene, composite decking is a good-looking, low-maintenance material. Composites come in a variety of colours and textures that closely approximate real wood. It also offers design versatility; it has apparatus for heating planks so they can be bent to make eye-catching in-laid designs.
