A decking terrace with clever thinking and a smooth layout, a sensible solution for the design brief and construction. Millboard enhanced grain seems to be winning the hearts of the client for many gardens. Stylish wood replica decking with very little maintenance in a light grey finish has added a contemporary statement to this space.
The C24 structurally graded and also treated timber has been laid in a framework in accordance with the manufactures instructions.
“It is vital to correctly structure your decking. Not only to support the weight of its intended use but to uphold the manufacturers warranty. We are professional millboard installers and it remains essential that the installation guidelines are followed.”
The joist centres are in a 400mm centre arrangement and mechanically fixed with TimberLoc joist screws by OSC. The frame then supported by posts concreted into the ground with intermediate pedestals for additional support. The decking fixed into place with the recommended stainless screws; this means the terrace is designed well and built to last.
