All Patio Design can supply and construct decking. This medium of landscaping as an area for hardstanding has become quite popular. It is quite simple to construct and can be bespokely made to suit the client’s needs with a number of interesting designs.
The decking can be made from hardwood which is very expensive or softwood. The softwood patio decking is available from most builders merchants and timber fencing merchants and can be viewed online or looked at in the merchants themselves.
There are various finishes on the patio decking normally on one piece of decking there is a finish that can be seen on both sides to choose from. Also the patio decking varies from merchants to merchants so it is wise to have a look at the various builders merchants patterns and see what suits best. Also perhaps get some samples from the suppliers and bring them home as this is an important decision.
The patio deck can be constructed over the top of an existing patio if there is enough room. Being of a timber construction it will not affect the damp proof course on a house. So therefore can be built straight out level with a back door or patio door for example, this will make access easy obviously from the house onto the patio deck area but then steps would be required onto the lawn area.
The patio deck construction is also useful when it comes to gardens with big slopes as the decking can be constructed on thick posts or brick piers to hold it up so avoiding the costs of retaining walls and hardcore infill that would have to occur with a traditional landscaped patio of stone or paving.
Also with a patio deck, balustrade can be fitted around the edge of the patio deck either for safety if the patio deck is quite high up or on the ground level just for the look of the finished article.
Again with balustrade there are many different sorts to choose from for your patio decking. The more ornate the balustrade you choose the better it may look but also the cost of the product increases.
The patio decking and balustrade and indeed all the timber supplied by All Patio Design from merchants is pressure treated. This will ensure a reasonable long life for the timber that is used outside along with this the patio deck can be treated with any of the products now on the market for wood treatment. This may well be more for colour as already stated, the pressure treatment should give the patio deck a long life anyway.
The patio deck can also as it gets older be maintained with either stain or paint on products as already discussed but as with all timber when it does eventually reach the end of its life only some areas may need replacing which is easy enough to do for All Patio Design.
The patio deck is screwed together with decking screws which are specifically made for the purpose and are powder coated to protect them against the rigours of outdoor weather. The same thing applies to the bolts needed to fix the frame to the decking to go on to its supports. All Patio Design does everything possible to ensure that the product being bought will be a quality construction that will last the maximum amount of time possible.
The patio decking does also fit well into some major projects. Patio deck can be small area to catch late evening sun or be used as a major patio area. The patio deck can also look very good up against other products and blend in with fencing and trellis work, this along with a good planting concept can give a very satisfactory and pleasing result for the client.
Lights as with any garden landscaping project can be provided. These again can be varied and interesting and can complement the patio decking. There can be either a lamp post light or a simple bulk head light to shine down on the whole structure. Lights can also be fitted into the decking itself to shine up giving a soft atmospheric feel.
However, whatever your requirement in the patio decking field All Patio Design can supply, build and also help with design of your patio decking. So please don’t hesitate to give us a call to start working through the process which All Patio Design will guide you through, make easy and supply and construct a high quality product.
