Many people think the ridges are there to prevent slipping; however, they’re actually there to make the decking last longer. When installed with the ridges facing down, the airflow around the wood increases, reducing the risk of mould building up.
When the decking is installed with the ridges facing up, moisture gets trapped in the grooves and can make the decking deteriorate faster!
In most situations, no. Decking is typically considered a ‘permitted development,’ so no planning permission is needed.
There are a couple of exceptions though:
· If the decking is over 30cm above the ground
· The decking covers over 50% of the garden area (alongside other extensions and outbuildings)
· The decking is being built past the front wall of your property
There are also further requirements that your decking installation needs to meet if you live in a conservation area or close to a highway.
If in doubt, speak to your local council before you go ahead with installing your decking.
There are a wide range of woods you can use, including cedar, redwood, and mahogany.
However, if you’re looking for a sustainable option, we recommend FSC-certified decking boards manufactured from fast-growing woods. All the decking boards we supply are FSC-certified.
Whichever wood you decide on, it’s important that you choose treated timber. Often referred to as pressure-treated timber, this wood has been treated with chemicals that protect against rot, fungi, and termites. This extends the life of your decking by a considerable amount.Another popular alternative is Millboard decking. This decking looks like wood but is made of wood-free polyurethane and mineral stone, meaning it’s incredibly durable
High-quality treated timber decking will last a long time when properly installed, but here are some handy tips for extending the life of your wooden decking further.
· Sweep and rinse your decking once a week to get rid of leaves, dirt, pollen, and other debris
· Check regularly for mould and cracks – replacing one board is easier than the entire decking!· Apply an oil or stain to protect your decking against rain, sun, and snow. We recommend you leave your new decking for six months before you treat it, so the pre-treatment erodes away
