Designing, ordering, and constructing your own garden deck can be a daunting enough task on its own, but this can be doubly stressful for homeowners working around a busy schedule. 

Building Materials Nationwide offers the ideal solution for DIYers, with high-quality decking materials designed around a simple building process, allowing you to create a stunning and durable outdoor space with ease. 

You’ll save further time with our quick delivery and comprehensive range of decking fixings and accessories, ensuring that you’ll be enjoying your deck as soon as possible.

DIY Decking Installed Around Your Schedule

Installing decking may seem like a time-consuming task, but with some experience and a solid plan, it can be a surprisingly time-efficient activity. By choosing our simple-to-install composite decking boards, you can streamline the installation process and work at your convenience.

Once you’ve installed your decking, you’ll want to spend as much time as possible enjoying it, which is just another reason to recommend our composite or PVC options. Unlike traditional timber decking, these low-maintenance alternatives do not require staining, sealing, or extensive cleaning. With just a simple wipe, your deck will be clean and ready for use again and again.

Quality Decking Optimised for Quick Installation

Through our decking category, you’ll find our range of boards, with composite, PVC, and timber options, each of which is optimised for reliable, quick installation:

  • Composite Decking: Our composite decking boards offer the perfect blend of durability, aesthetics, and easy maintenance, with a swift installation. With a range of designs and colours available, you’ll be able to create a space that fits the aesthetics of your house and garden, with a simple building process. Composite boards are designed around maintenance-free long-term use, with great resistance to weather, insects, and UV. In most cases, you can simply wipe them clean to keep them in perfect condition.
  • PVC Decking: Another comparable option is our PVC decking boards, which have a solid core and a resistant ASA facing to provide a convincing wood grain look. Offering durability, beauty, and performance, these are another fantastic choice for your garden. Like composite, they come ready for a quick installation.
  • Timber Decking: While timber decking comes with a few drawbacks worth considering, for some homeowners the look of natural wood is worth it. We have both standard and anti-slip options, helping you design decking around water elements like hot tubs. Timber decking will offer the same great performance over time as our other options, but will require a more rigorous schedule of treatment and staining over the years.

We also offer a comprehensive range of supplies and accessories to complete your deck project. From fixings and fascia boards to handrails, alongside our full selection of tools, we have everything you need to ensure a seamless and professional-grade installation around your schedule.

5 Tips to Make the Most of Your Time

Building a deck can be a great DIY project at many skill levels, but it's important to prepare adequately to ensure a smooth installation process and reduce wasted time. Here are 5 of our top tips to help you speed up your build process:

  • Plan and Prepare: Take the time to carefully plan your deck design and gather all the necessary materials and tools before you begin. This will help streamline the installation process and avoid unnecessary delays.
  • Use Efficient Installation Techniques: Employ efficient installation techniques, such as using hidden fastening systems or self-spacing deck boards. These methods not only save time but also create a clean and professional-looking deck surface.
  • Divide and Conquer: Break down the project into smaller tasks and tackle them one at a time. This approach helps prevent overwhelm and allows you to complete the deck installation in manageable stages.
  • Seek Assistance When Needed: Don't hesitate to ask for help when faced with challenging tasks or heavy lifting. Enlist the support of family members, friends, or neighbours to make the installation process smoother and more efficient.
  • Follow Manufacturer Guidelines: Ensure that you carefully follow the manufacturer's guidelines and instructions for your chosen decking materials. This will help you avoid costly mistakes and ensure the best results.

As with all DIY projects, the key is to plan ahead, work systematically, and utilise the right tools and techniques throughout.
