Patios and timber decks are great for extending your living area and are the ideal space for entertaining and relaxing. They create a transition area between your home and garden and give you a comfortable space to enjoy the outdoors. Exposed timbers can suffer from weathering. Here we'll show the easy way to keep your outdoor timbers and decking well maintained and looking good. Sander decking

Generally speaking, treated pine decking is a timber product that has been treated with a preservative to improve the timber's resistance to attack by wood destroying fungi and wood destroying insects. In other words, the timber's durability is enhanced to a level which is suitable for use as decking. However, the "treatment" does not afford the timber protection against weathering.
When any timber (treated or untreated) is exposed to the weather, the timber will take up and lose moisture from or to the atmosphere as the environment around the timber changes on daily or seasonal basis. The timber will expand or contract when it takes up or loses moisture. At the time of installation, gaps are provided between the decking boards to allow for expansion in the width of the decking boards during periods of higher humidity.
All sorts of things can be done, depending on how you want to use your space. Just bear in mind that if you're creating an outdoor structure, it may need planning permission and be subject to certain Building Regulations. You can be sure all our Decking products meet every relevant regulation of course – and if you have any questions, just ask – we'll do our best to help you make it happen. Composite Decking product
