Composite deck

Composite decking is a highly popular option when it comes to outdoor decking projects. If you’re looking to have composite decking installed on your property, you might have a few questions as to what you can expect.

One of the benefits of having decking on your property is that it gives you a diverse space for a wide range of activities, including hosting. If you’re hoping to use your outdoor decking space for barbecues or parties, you may be expecting guests to walk along the decking barefoot; especially young children at play, or guests using a swimming pool in the summer months.


Before you can begin the process of transforming your garden, you'll need to know how much decking to order. We've put together the following guide to help you purchase the right number of boards.
