You want to build a deck of your own. To extend your living space into the garden. What type of decking should you use? There are a few things to consider.
Types of decking:
Softwood timber decking is still the most popular form of decking. If you are working to a budget, it may be your preferred option. The decking is pressure treated for protection, but you will need to clean it annually. Using a wood treatment in addition will add to the longevity of your decking. Pressure treated decking can also be stained.
Hardwood decking is formed from a denser wood. It is naturally more hard wearing and is naturally less susceptible to moisture damage. Hardwood decking usually has a stronger colouring, but as with any timber product, this will weather with age.
Here at MKM we offer the latest ranges of composite decking boards. Made from a combination of recycled wood and plastic composite, decking such as Trex and Fitrite offer a sustainable alternative to traditional wood decking systems. Most composite systems have hidden fixings, meaning the surfaces are screw free and visually appealing. By the nature of their manufacture, they also come in a range of colour options.
