Premium Quality Decking Timber Suppliers

Why Decking Timber?

Decking Timber is a popular alternative to typical concrete terraces and patio areas. It is an excellent technique to expand a building’s living rooms to the outside. It is highly versatile and has the ability to fit a variety of design and construction requirements.  It creates an ideal space for playing, dining and entertaining.

Decking Timber can be built around sloping and uneven terrain. Split and elevated level decks can be built to create depth and dimension to outdoor spaces.

Gowan Lea Timbers will bring style and functionality to any outdoor space. Decking Timber comes in a number of different species and grain- each with their own benefits and combines the beauty of natural wood with functionality and design.

The Benefits Of Decking Timber

Stylish: Decking timber gives an aesthetic appeal to any outdoor entertaining area. It has the ability to conceal unsightly necessities such as pipes and drains. Its easy installation reduces the need for additional digging and construction preparation.

Increase Property Value: Wood is naturally attractive and adds aesthetic value and elegance wherever it is constructed. Apart from this, decking timber adds valuable outdoor entertaining space and the opportunity to add value to the property.

Versatile: Decking Timber has a variety of applications and can be used around pools, water features, walkways and patios. Its easy installation makes it ideal for uneven terrain in both commercial and residential environments. It is also easily modified or extended

Environmentally Friendly: Wood is versatile as well as durable raw material. Its manufacturing process is low-waste and requires less energy-intensive methods to process into construction products.

Traditional vs Composite Timber

When it comes to decking material, our customers are spoilt for choice. Not only is there a wide range of the highest quality timber species to choose from, but also have a variety of eco decking materials as well. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your tired-looking decks or planning on designing and building a new structure from scratch. Deciding between different building materials can be tough.

Traditional timber has been a popular choice for construction projects for many years, however as the world moves towards eco consciousness, the need for sustainable building materials have risen.  Despite timber being the traditional option, it hasn’t always been the most practical and affordable one. With composite decking timber offering less maintenance and higher durability, it is easy to see why this question exists.

Composite Timber

Decking Timber: Not For You?

If traditional decking timber does not meet your construction requirements, composite decking is the ideal solution for you.

Composite decking is quickly becoming the largest timber deck alternative on the market. It is becoming the preferred decking construction material as it is eco-friendly and uses recycled materials in its manufacturing process.

Composite decking is a wood-plastic mix that is hard wearing in a multitude of climates and environments. A mix of wood fibres, plastics and bonding agents are heated and formed into boards and planks. The result is a long-lasting and maintenance free alternative to traditional wood.
