DECKING KITS – WHAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER
You can download decking kit instructions here:
What size kit do you require, make sure you complete a measurement of the area you wish to place your decking. You might wish to use pegs and strings to mark out the area.
All our timber is pressure treated which can go directly onto grass and/or stone area.
Consider using weed control membrane for underneath your timber if you are placing your decking onto a grassed area to stop any weeds and/or grass comes through.
The framework underneath any decking kit is important, at UKDeckit our joists are all 100mm x 47mm as a finished size timber, make sure you are happy with the joist sizes prior to purchase.
All our decking kits listed are for fitting onto a flat and level surface. If you require a raised deck we can provide the posts that you would need to create the height of the decking frame, please give us a call to discuss your requirements or send an email we will be happy to help.
The spacing of the joists for the frame are from 400mm x 600mm depending on the size of the kit, if you require any more joists please give us a call to discuss your requirements.
The joists that are provided for our kits are all cut to size to reduce the amount of work involved when you are assembling your kit.
The materials within UKDeckit decking kits are all hand picked to ensure the best quality of each product is transported to our customers.
The deck board is Swedish Redwood and has a finished size of 120mm x 28mm, some kits are available with a lesser quality of deck board which is whitewood, make sure that you know what type of material your decking kit is manufactured from. The deck board is machined at a saw mill and there is a tolerance on the length upto 20mm.
For each UKDeckit decking kit you will receive 8 deck boards per meter and an additional 4 deck boards at the size appropriate to your decking kit to face off the structure.
