Wood or timber decking can be used in a number of ways - as part of garden landscaping, to extend living areas of houses, and as an alternative to stone based features such as patios.
Are decks easy to build? Yes! You really don’t need to be a carpenter to build a deck – only basic skills are required. Just make sure you plan very carefully and check and re-check all measurements both at the planning stage and as you build. A second pair of hands will often be useful.
Decks are made from treated lumber, composite material, Aluminium, Western red cedar, teak, mahogany and other hardwoods as well as recycled planks made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polystyrene (PS) and PET plastic as well as mixed plastics and wood fibre (often called "composite" lumber). Artificial decking products are often called "wood-plastic composites".
