Our oak boards can vary in colour from a verylight brown through to a medium honey, giving a light, natural appearing deck that will blend sympathetically with most surroundings.
All exterior Oak will develop surface splits, shakes and cracks over time – this is a natural occurrence and these can even close back up again with the changing seasons. Our Oak is a mixture of Rustic to Prime grade, allowing for cat paw, small, medium and large knots. Some boards may contain sap and surface splits however this is structurally sound and within grade
Face Screwing: The traditional method. Simply screw through the face of the board into your sub-frame, plugging the hole if required. We recommend 400mm centre to centre joist spacing.
Deckwise Hidden Fastenings: allow you to lay your hardwood decking boards without the need for unsightly face screws. Each Deckwise clip screws into your sub-frame and then slots into the side of adjoining boards. Deckwise Clips automatically provide the 4mm spacing.
We can pre-groove your decking boards for use with Deckwise or you have the option of using a biscuit jointer on site.
We recommend installing your decking boards with the hardwood decking wrench. This is a self-locking deck board straightening tool that can be used to hold bent boards straight whilst fasteners are installed.
We also offer a hire service.
Simply screw through the face of the board into your sub-frame. Always Pilot Drill before fitting screws and drill 2mm oversize holes to allow for some expansion.
We recommend 4mm gaps between the boards (for tropical hardwoods) and 6mm gaps between the oak and softwood decking boards.
We recommend 400mm centre to centre joist spacing. Each hole can be plugged. We do not recommend that Hidden Fastening systems are used with oak decking.
