Timber Decking: We Have Everything You Need!

With spring in full flow and summertime waiting in the wings, there's never been a better time to consider building a decking structure in your garden. To make the highly-rewarding project easy and cost-effective, Greengates Builders Merchants has everything you need here in stock. Just like every other product we supply, our timber decking components are guaranteed to be of superlative professional quality. 

Garden decking is an ideal way to extend your outdoor living space, providing an infinitely-versatile area that is as beautiful as it is practical. The structure can be as small or as large as space permits and can be built in many different ways to suit your needs and the aesthetic of your home. In addition, a well-built decking structure can also enhance your property's financial value. 

Everything you need to build professional, durable timber decking structures in your garden can be found on the Greengates website in the dedicated 'Decking' section. The section includes:

Green-Treated Decking Boards
The decking boards supplied by Greengates Builders Merchant Accrington are crafted from the finest redwood timber, which has been subject to a green-treating process to ensure the ultimate longevity by protecting it from the elements and from attack by algae, moss, lichens, fungi and insects.

Green-treated timber is sometimes referred to as 'pressure-treated' or 'tanalised' timber. The process of green-treating begins when the raw timber is placed into a sealed vacuum tank, into which chemicals including copper and biocide are then pumped. The vacuum inside the tank causes these chemicals to penetrate deeply into the microscopic pores of the timber. After this process is completed, the timber is removed from the tank and fully dried.  

Our green-treated redwood decking boards are available in a comprehensive range of different sizes to suit any scale of project. 

Green-Treated Newel Posts & Spindles
Treated timber is also used to craft our attractive newel posts and spindles. In addition to providing the all-important supporting structure for safety handrails, these components also help to add an attractive finishing touch to the completed decking. Available in a selection of sizes with square or turned profiles, all of these spindles and newel posts are manufactured to ultra-precise tolerances. 

Index Decking Screws
Any decking structure is only as robust as the fixings that hold it all together and that's why Greengates recommends the use of Index decking screws. Designed expressly for use in the construction of timber decking structures, these superior screws are made from tough, durable steel of premium quality. The screws are supplied in tubs of 250 or, for added cost-effectiveness, tubs containing 1,000 screws.
