Do You do all sizes of decks - or just big ones ?

[We do all sizes of decks - many of our decks are started and finished in a day. Small decks can add much to a garden, and we pride ourselves in providing a good design solution for providing the maximum space in small gardens.]

What is the difference in price between hardwood and softwood decking.?

[There is not a huge difference, for the actual hardwood decking material is just a portion of the job. Other costs have also to be taken into account, and these can be the same for a softwood or hardwood deck. However, the skill level in building a 'good' hardwood deck is much higher. A properly constructed hardwood deck also takes longer to build than a softwood deck.

Is Hardwood Decking Much Better than Softwood Decking?

[No! But, it is different. It is more expensive because hardwood trees take longer to grow, and the resultant timber is usually shipped from other continents. This also means that wood in hardwood decking is denser, heavier and more durable, than softwood. Softwood comes from conifers - which have been specially planted for timber production - which are quicker growing, and come mainly from Europe. Each type of decking has its own application, and we advise upon the best materials for your own particular job. If you look around the site, you will see the obvious differences in visual impact between hardwood and softwood decks.]
