How Much Should You Spend for Decking Installation?

Before you splurge your hard-earned money over your decking construction project, you have to understand the costs that come along with it. Basically, the cost of the installation depends on several factors such as:

Size of the area/space 

– the smaller the area, the lower the cost of installation.

Decking material

– for a 15 square meter area, the usual cost for softwood decking ranges from £1,000 to as much as £1,200 while hardwood decking is a little more expensive and could cost from £1,500 to £1,700. Meanwhile, composite decking is the most expensive of all which could cost around £1,900 to £2000.

Condition of the area

– does the area have existing structures, installations, deep-rooted trees and plants that need to be removed or excavated? Does the area have uneven and irregularly-shaped surfaces? These factors can affect the labour costs that should also be considered.

If you want to have your very own garden decking installed, you have to be financially ready. It is paramount that you allocate enough money for the project and some extras because the expenses could increase with design changes.

What are the Options for Decking Installations?​

When choosing the type of material for your decking installation, it is a must that you are aware of the pros and cons of using them. At Manchester Decking Builders, we make sure that our clients understand all the aspects of the project, especially the material selection so that they will be able to make the right choice.

Our professional decking services are customisable in order to accommodate the unique needs of every client. We install natural wood and synthetic decking boards that come in different shades and finishes.

Timber Decking

Wooden decks complement the natural outdoor environment perfectly. Imagine relaxing with all the greens around and fresh air on beautifully designed garden decking, accessorized with the right decorations and furniture – priceless!

If you are into timber decking, Manchester Decking Builders provides you with two options: softwood and hardwood. Let our experts guide you as you choose the one that best suits your style, needs, and budget.

Softwood Decking​

– can last up to 15 years or more especially those that are made from pressure-treated wood plus proper maintenance. However, when compared to hardwood, softwood is less durable.

– comes in various colours and finishes, making it very easy to match with the home’s overall theme and decorations.

– softwood is less dense, more flexible, and lighter than softwood. It may not be suitable for decks that are prone to high-traffic.

– requires regular maintenance with manufacturer- recommended wood cleaners. Softwood decking must also be treated every year.

– woods used in softwood boards come from fast-growing trees that are widely available; therefore, they are more eco-friendly.

– the cheapest among the all the decking boards available today.

Hardwood Decking​

– nothing beats hardwood when it comes to durability. It can last for a very, very long time with proper care and maintenance.

– exudes a natural, rustic, and classy look and ambiance which can only be achieved with hardwood. It looks even better as it ages.

– can withstand heavy traffic and changes in weather. It is also naturally-resistant to rotting, splitting, and warping.

– requires less maintenance than the softwood boards, but still, hardwood decking needs proper cleaning in order to keep it on its tiptop shape.

– hardwood decking boards are made from slow-growing woods that typically grow in tropical environment.

– more expensive than softwood which makes sense since this decking material is sourced from premium grade trees, tested and proven to be highly durable.

Composite Decking

Home and business owners who want to make sure that their decking installations are durable, aesthetically pleasing, and long-lasting often choose composite decking boards. This decking construction material is more like a combination of all features of every decking material available these days.

– premium-grade composite boards can actually outlive timber decking mainly because it is highly resistant to scratch, pest, mould and termite infestations, and doesn’t easily fade or warp.

– composite boards are very versatile. It lets you achieve any look and feel you want to impose on your decking installation – classic or modern, stylish or pretty basic.

– can withstand high-traffic, resistant to mold, splinter-proof, and won’t turn into a breeding place for fungus and other microorganism that would cause rotting in the long run.

– does not require much maintenance like hardwood or softwood. No need for regular treatments.

– composite boards are made from recycled materials such as plastics and wood wastes or sawdust; therefore, no trees were cut to manufacture these decking boards.

– may not be the cheapest you can get for your decking replacement and construction project, but it is the most cost-effective one.

At Manchester Decking Builders, both our timber and composite decking supplies and services are top-class. In addition to our exceptional craftsmanship, we provide a 15-year warranty to our softwood decking boards for damages caused by fungus and molds. Also, we guarantee that all of our decking boards are sourced from trusted manufacturers.

A typical decking installation project could cost around £1000 to £2,000. Prices vary depending on materials used as well as the condition of the area where you want the deck installed such as those that need more tedious tasks as excavation and removal of big, deep-rooted trees, and other existing installations.

Depending on the size of the area as well as the labour requirement, the decking can be installed in 1 or 2 days. More days might be required if the area needs more work like excavation, removal, or surface levelling. The number of people working, and the equipment and method should also be considered.
