All of our hardwood decking timbers are naturally durable and hard wearing. There is no need to apply any form of treatment as the product will weather to a beautiful silver/grey colour. However decking oil is available to help maintain the natural colour as much as possible, if required.

With the range of finishes that we have available decking can also be stained to your preferred colour.

Hardwood decking is aesthetically pleasing and will outlast softwood decking by many years.

Decking is available to face fix or secret fix.

We can machine a wide range of profiles including newels, spindles and rails to complement your deck.
