    Whether its commercial or domestic, it is always a great comfort knowing your company has work to go back to or start in the new year.


    Do you have much on?, Booked in? Designing?


    We have a little on to start with, not masses – the late spring is when we have contracts to steam into….


    Early March is when we start in earnest and we will be flat out till September… if the last 7 years are anything to go by.


    Great news Dan,

    When you say flat out, what do you mean, are these commercial decking installation projects?


    We have a great 60m2 double tier angled deck to get stuck into but always looking for more! Any suggestions on good hard woods like Ipe but more affordable?


    Great that you have a project to get stuck into, If you consider the cost of Ipe and an approxinate cost of £12k-£14K plus vat for the whole project; to then reduce the sq m cost of Hardwood deck by even £10 per sq m would only save you £600.

    First Grade S4S/E4E KD Random Length Ipe currently (Jan 2012) is between £60 and £80 plus vat per sq m

    To answer your question you could consider Massaranduba at Approx £52 per sq m or even Kurupay at approx £55 (harder than Ipe) or even Merbau (approx £72)

    Do let you client know that they will all go silver eventually… or ask Thomas Rathbone to provide a quality Maintenance service to keep the colour. 

    I did write a blog about what decks cost here

    Hope this helps

    We have a steady flow of enquiries coming in and the “bread & butter” of other services we offer are keeping us busy already and its only the second week of January; looks like its going to be a busy year.
