This week one of our customers has been installing Trex Composite Decking boards in a holiday home in Milford Haven. The customer has opted for Trex Gravel Path Solid Composite Decking boards with an Island Mist Solid Composite Surround.
The wooden decking had been previously installed over 15 years ago and had come to the end of its natural service life it therefore needed to be changed. This Decking projest proved slightly more challenging than your average low maintenance decking installation due to the fact that the balcony and the handrail also needed to be replaced.
The fitter in this instance machined a bespoke handrail system as per the customers request installing it directly into the steel frame that had been fabricated at the time of construction. It is worth noting that he decking board needs to be fitted on a base with a minimum of 400mm Joist centres.
BEFORE THE TREX COMPOSITE DECKING WAS INSTALLED
The customer has opted for the composite decking boards over the more traditional wooden decking boards primarily due to the reduced ammount of maintenance that needs to be carried out on this particular style of decking. The product offers a 25 year Residual warranty and requires very little up keep. Basically once installed correctly it will need to be cleaned when required and that will be it until the next time that it needs a revamp.
Trex Decking in our opinion is the Market leader, as a company they have been producing decking for over 20 Years. It is a tried and tested product that has stood the test of time. However the Trex deck board doesnt come cheap.
Look out for the next decking installation. For further information on Decking products feel free to give us a call at our Swansea Depot South Wales on 01792 ( Swansea ) 884828 or alternativly call in and visit our extensive Composite & PVC decking display area.
