Timber products are becoming more and more popular due to the distinctive look and finish they can provide in your gardens. There are a number of different timber products that are available and each of them can leave customers with a garden that they will be proud to show off to their friends and family.
But it is important to identify a reliable timber specialist company to purchase your timber supplies from as having low quality timber fencing or decking can leave you with a number or problems that can take a great deal of money to rectify. So it is important that you find a timber specialist that has a proven track record in delivering high quality timber products that you will be happy with.
One of the most popular timber products that is currently available is timber decking. Timber decking can leave gardens with an excellent look that is a reflection of your personality in the same way that your home says a lot about you.
But the thing that a lot of people do not consider is timber decking maintenance. The degree of maintenance required depends on the deck specification. DeckMark™ quality assessed components require no further preservative treatment. They will resist decay almost indefinitely and can be expected to last in excess of 25 years.
A water repellent coating may also be used to improve deck performance by helping to reduce the occurrence of small cracks. If used, water repellents should be applied every other year-preferably at the end of summer. It is now possible to specify decking timbers that include water repellents as part of the pressure pre-treatment process.
Decorative stains will also need to be refreshed periodically to maintain their appearance – usually depending on location, amount of sun received and general wear and tear.
One such timber supplies company who specialise in a number of different timber products including timber decking is DG Heath based in Pontarddulais. Here is a video where they explain the importance of garden decking maintenance.
