Every deck that we design and install is guaranteed up to 15 years. However, we expect its life to be much longer than this.
Learn more about our triple guarantee for excellence.
The lifespan of a wood deck depends on many factors. We pay attention to every one:
- The quality of the original timber
- The preservation treatment used
- The design of the structure
- The quality and specification of the fixings
- The standard of the installation
- Ongoing deck maintenance
We pressure treat all of our carefully sourced timber to Hazard Class 4: suitable for in-ground contact. That’s above the specification required for most of it. But we take no chances.
Our attention to detail in design ensures that your sub-structure is substantial enough to meet your needs, whilst we take into account your local environment and other specific aspects about your site. There’s nothing standard at Deckbuilders.
Using the right fixings and following best practice when it comes to installation is key. Cutting corners is quite simply, cutting the life of your wood deck. We don’t do that.
Once we’ve handed over your deck to you, it’s important to understand that regular maintenance will maximise its life and natural beauty.
