Softwoods are a highly poplar choice for both domestic and commercial decking. Contrary to its name, softwood offers a level of durability that means if looked after properly, new decking will keep its look and last for a long period of time. The softwood decking solution we offer is made from Redwood (Pinus sylvestris) and is available from sustainable, certified sources. Typically more knotty than clear softwoods, Redwood is a cost effective option that is ideal if you prefer staining or colouring your deck. Our softwoods are pressure treated to industry recognised standards that conform to the latest environmental legislation. This enhances their durability and wear resistance to the outdoor elements with a guaranteed lifespan of up to 30 years, provided your deck is properly maintained. For those seeking a higher quality of softwood with less knots and thirty
year plus durability, we offer Western Red Cedar from Canada and Siberian Larch. These timbers are naturally durable and therefore no additional treatment is required.
Softwoods are versatile to work with and accept stains very easily, allowing scope for creative deck designs within your garden scheme. Or you can leave your deck unstained and over time it will naturally weather to a silver grey colour. To maintain the appearance of your deck we recommend annual cleaning and re-oiling. Our range offers a wide choice of treated components to satisfy contemporary and traditional tastes. The traditional range of turned balustrades and newels gives a timeless classic look. Or for a sleek contemporary style, choose the simplicity of clean lines with softly rounded edges. Deck boards are available in a choice of profiles – smooth and grooved. To further enhance your deck, we are able to offer a factory finish coating which will protect the look of your deck for a minimum of five years.
