The Equipment You Need For Your Decking Installation

When looking to build a deck within your garden, you’ll need a range of tools for an effective, safe, and long-lasting installation. Many of these will be part of any DIYer's standard arsenal, but others could be more specialist. 

For any homeowner looking to embark on a new decking project, they may need to own or source the following:

  • Power drill: Used for fastening screws and securing boards.
  • Circular saw: The ideal tool for cutting decking boards to size.
  • Spirit level: Ensures your deck is perfectly even and straight.
  • Measuring tape: Essential for accurate measurements.
  • Chalk liner: Helps in marking for precise installation.
  • Decking screws: High-quality screws designed for outdoor use that will boost strength and long-term performance.
  • Safety gear: Protective equipment such as gloves, safety glasses, and ear protection. When using power tools your safety should be a top priority.

Alongside the decking boards and accessories required, it’s crucial to have all necessary equipment ready. Our all-in-one solution means we can deliver you the full range of building supplies and tools you need for your home projects from one source, saving you time and effort.

Our Full Range of Decking Boards and Accessories

Once you have all the tools you need, we also offer a comprehensive selection of decking boards to suit your garden. Whether you prefer the natural look of timber, the durability of composite, or the versatility of PVC, we have the perfect decking boards for your project. Here's a breakdown of our range:

  • PVC Decking: Our PVC decking boards are known for their low-maintenance nature, durability, and resistance to rot and insect damage. They are available in a variety of colours and finishes to suit your aesthetic preferences.
  • Composite Decking: Composite decking offers the perfect balance of beauty and durability. They are made from a blend of recycled materials and offer exceptional resistance to fading, staining, and warping.
  • Timber Decking: If you prefer the timeless appeal of natural timber, our timber decking boards are the ideal choice. Timber will require more regular upkeep to remain at its best, but for some, its look will be incomparable.

In addition to decking boards, we also offer a comprehensive range of accessories and fixings to ensure a seamless installation. From fascia boards and joists to balustrades and handrails, we have all the components you need to create a stunning and functional deck.
