Timber Decking

Wood decking or timber decking enhances the natural beauty of your outdoor space, especially when it is designed well and installed properly. Manchester Decking Builders designs and constructs wooden decks that complement the landscape and the surroundings.

You have two options for timber decking – softwood and hardwood. Each material has its own unique characteristics that will perfectly match your home’s overall theme and decors. At Manchester Decking Builders, we can provide you anything you need to have your wooden decking installed as you have imagined it.

But first, it is important to understand the differences between the two types of timber decking boards so you can get the best results.

Softwood Decking Features:

  •  Stylish, durable, and less expensive.
  •  Commonly used softwood tree species include hemlock, pine, and cedar.
  •  Highly sustainable since softwood comes from fast-growing trees.
  •  Comes from trees that have no pores, which is why it has lower density.
  •  Very pliable, making it very easy to install; however, softwood is not very suitable for high-traffic areas.
  •  Available in many different colours and finishes that will surely match your design and theme.
  •  The cheapest among all decking materials.
  •  Can last for a very long time, even up to 25 years, especially when it is pressure treated plus proper care and maintenance.

Manchester Decking Builders provides our clients only the best quality of softwood deck boards. We have a wide-range of choices for softwood decks – from classic to modern style. We understand that you might be a bit skeptical about using softwood for your decking project considering the fact that it has some weak features. But at Manchester Decking Builders, we back our softwood board with a 15-year warranty for damages caused by fungus and other insects.

Hardwood Decking Features:

  •  Timeless aesthetics, extremely durable, unique.
  •  No two woods are alike that is what makes hardwood timber a unique option for decking.
  • Hardwoods are very dense, making it highly-resistant to heavy traffic.
  • Does not require frequent maintenance and treatment.
  • Can work with both classic and contemporary style – available in many different colours and finishes.
  • Less likely to rot, scratch, or warp.
  • More expensive than softwood.
  • More resistant to fire than softwood.
  • Comes from slow-growing, exotic trees.

Hardwood may be more expensive than softwood, but you surely get what you pay for. This decking material is very popular due to its incredible strength and beauty that gets even better as it ages.

At Manchester Decking Builders, we build decks using premium-grade hardwood decking boards. You can count on its durability even when installed outdoors. Opting for hardwood combined with exceptional craftsmanship is the smartest investment you can make for your property.

Composite Decking

Composite decking can undeniably compete with hardwood and softwood decking when it comes to durability and aesthetics. This is the main reason why more and more home and business owners turn to this material for their garden decking or family decking installation.

Manchester Decking Builders brings you the best choices of composite decking. We are proud to offer our top-rated proprietary composite decking along with our excellent installation, repair, and maintenance services. Because we want you to have a stress-free decking installation process, our licensed and friendly deck builders will work with you every step of the way until the project is completed.

Composite Decking Features:

  • Offers seamless options for colours and designs that allow easy matching with your theme and decors.
  • Made with synthetic materials and recycled wood wastes or “sawdust”. More eco- friendly than timber deck boards.
  • Specially designed to be safe for kids and pets – splinter-free and slip-resistant.
  • More durable than softwood and can compete with hardwood, and can last for many, many years.
  • Can also provide that natural finish like the hardwood.
  • Cost-effective option – you get all the features of other decking materials in one at a reasonable price.

It is an undeniable fact that only hardwood can give out that natural, warm, rustic look and feel, but composite decking boards are definitely not to be ignored. When you choose the premium- grade quality, you can enjoy all the features of hardwood, softwood, and synthetic decking materials combined.

At Manchester Decking Builders, we guide our clients in choosing the right material for their project with their budget and preferences in mind. And if you opt for composite decking boards, aside from the colour, finish, and style, you also have to decide whether you want the capped composite decking or the capped polymer decking.

Capped composite decking is made from organic wood fillers mixed with recycled materials. On the other hand, capped polymer decking contains no organic fillers and purely recycled materials. Prices vary depending on these factors as well.
