Composite decking installers you can trust to get it right.
All of our composite decking installation projects in London are managed by talented and dedicated professionals. When it comes to installing composite decking, the installation process is more complex than usual as composite is an advanced product, and the cost of the raw materials are even greater, so we make sure that all of our fitters and installers have the experience needed to execute the installation to perfection.
We also understand that when installing a new deck, certain factors regarding the make-up on the composite decking mean that specific practices need to be followed that do not always apply to timber deck installation to ensure the perfect finishing touch is achieved. We are dedicated professionals experienced in this industry and this is the difference that sets us apart from the rest and why we are the go-to London decking company for all outdoor spaces.
Composite decking is made from a blend of recycled hardwood and polymer (plastic composite) and is available in a range of prefabricated colours. It is easily laid, highly durable, completely splinter-free (unlike timber decking), weather resistant, and is so low maintenance that it requires no further treatment other than cleaning with soapy water.
Ecologically, composite decking is manufactured using wood waste and, in some cases, recycled polymers, which make composite decking a beneficial ecological choice; offcuts can also be recycled. Although composite decking is a higher-end price range option to natural wood, its design allows it to have a longer life span than wood decking in most cases.
Styles of composite decking we install across London
Composite Decking Colours
We can source composite decking in an extensive range of different colours to appeal to any palette, however, grey, black and natural colour deck boards tend to be our most popular composite products.
Grey composite decking is by far the most popular request we get from our clients. The neutral grey tones of the decking boards we source work great in contrast to the vivid green of a lawn or any floral displays.
Traditional yet timeless, natural look composite decking effortlessly blends in with the aesthetics of any garden, giving a natural feel to your outdoor space. It also works great for rooftops and penthouse areas where our clients would like to bring a slice of nature into those spaces.
Another one of our highly desired colours of decking boards, black composite decking is fast becoming one of our most adopted colours. It is the perfect solution for giving your decking area a modern aesthetic and works great with any furniture or outdoor design.
Composite Decking Finishes
Along with the colour and lateral type, the texture and pattern of your composite deck boards can also play a huge role in the general look of the finished project.
Traditionally this is the best practice for laying decking as the grooved side underneath will allow for drainage and airflow below the decking. This is the most popular option of installing our decking baords, and for good reason.
Athough this is not traditionally the best option for the surface deck due to the lack of airflow beneath the composite decking, this style has become popular over the last few decades and for some it’s the finish of choice understandably.
Enhanced Grain & Brushed
When customers are looking for a natural looking finish that tastefully mimics the aesthetic feel of natural timber, we have a large range of options (primarily Millboard and Trex products) that can fool even the most trained eye upon close inspection, with realistic wood grain and brushed wood patterns.

How do you install composite decking?
We install our composite decking using the best practices in the industry, strictly following manufacturer installation instructions to ensure a perfect finish that will last for years to come. We have the ability to not only install a composite deck for flooring but can also create composite decking staircases, terraces, balconies, and pretty much build anything that would usually be made with traditional timber.
How long does composite decking last?
This is dependent on the brand we are using but generally speaking composite decking will last from 15-30 years with very little to no maintenance. This is the benefit to traditional timber wood deck that would require regular maintenance.
What is the best composite decking to use?
This comes down to personal preference and also the environment where the decking will be used, for example for heavy use and high footfall a commercial grade would be better suited whereas for general residential use in a family home for example there are many great option including our favourite brand which is Millboard decking.
How much is composite decking?
Prices vary depending on the type of composite decking used along with the complexity of the frame we need to build to install it onto. Entry level prices start at £200 per square meter which includes the entire supply and installation.
Do you supply the decking or do we buy it ourselves?
We always supply the decking for our customers, ensuring that the entire installation and build process runs smoothly in a timely manner without any complications. We also supply ourselves as we need to be 100% certain that the materials we are using are built to last and match our clients expectations.
Can you lay composite decking on concrete?
Yes we can lay composite decking over any surface material as we build frames desiccated to each surface accordingly. The framework which the composite decking is built onto is the fundamental factor that determines whether you will have a deck that will last or slowly deteriorate over time.
Are there any disadvantages to composite decking?
There are pretty much no downsides to using composite decking so long as you use quality composite decking boards, and the install is done correctly, in particular the frame. It is our years of expertise in working with composite decking and carrying out complex installations for over 20 years that sets us apart from the rest.
