Installing Decking

A well designed and installed decking area is the perfect addition to any garden. Not only will it look great but planning the layout correctly will help improve the way you interact with your home and garden.

Whether you would like your decking area built in regular timber, hardwood or composite the key is to make sure your boards are fit for purpose and our team can help you from the initial design ideas through to installation.

Softwoods are going to be the cheapest option to start with but it is extremely important they are pressure treated and any new cuts should also be covered with good end-grain sealer to make sure they stay durable and strong.

Decking Materials

Deciding what type of decking material to use a few years ago would have been simply a choice of wood or… wood. But today there are many different options available.

Deciding on the right material is going to depend on a number of different factors, the main two being Maintenance and Cost.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the pros and cons of the different decking materials Peterborough Improvements will install for you –


Traditional Timber Decking

Traditional decking boards are pressure-treated for durability and are by far the most popular type of decking we install. They are quite straightforward to install, the lowest cost choice but will require regular maintenance.

Low Cost
The cheapest decking material
Not Eco Friendly
High Maintenance
Cleaning and treating with oils is recommended for longevity

Hardwood Decking

More expensive than traditional pressure-treated timber, hardwood decking provides a lovely finished decking area that although resistant to things like warping and rot, will still require regular maintenance.

High Cost
The most expensive decking material
Not Eco Friendly
Regular Maintenance
Requires much less maintenance than softwood

Composite Decking

Made-up of a wood-flour & recycled plastic, composite decking boards are starting to become more and more popular due to them being extremely low-maintenance and looking superb.

The lifespan of a composite decking board is around 50 years so although they are initially a more costly investment, long term they should recoup the additional cost looking after a timber decking.

High Cost
Not Eco Friendly
Low Maintenance
Least likely material to get mould or algae growth
Long Lifespan

Do I need planning permission for my decking project?

Provided the finished area is no more than 300mm above ground level, and together with other “permitted developments” (such as outbuildings) the area covers no more than 50% of the total garden area, then most decks will not require any planning permission.

If you live in a listed building or conservation area or if the decking borders a neighbouring property we would recommend checking with your local authority.
