How to install Decking Boards | Buy Decking Direct
Whether you are renovating an existing deck or planning a larger decking project, our singular decking boards are ideal for smaller designs while our larger deck board and joist packs are perfect for your more adventurous decking projects.

Our decking tiles let you create instant garden decking or a garden path with the minimum of fuss – no DIY skills required! Available in a range of sizes, decking tiles have their own integral framework so they can be laid quickly onto grass and concrete or, if preferred, over deck bearers.
Decking Explained

1. Deck Joists & Bearers

Deck boards and tiles need to be fixed down to a suitable frame or base. For a small deck you can use easy deck bearers. However for a larger deck we recommend you build a robust frame using one of our structural grade joists. Using the lengths available, create an external frame and then strengthen with joists in between the area/span equally spaced between 400 – 600mm centres. Using the same joist material cut bracing/noggins to brace in-between the joists approximately 1000 – 1200mm apart.

2. Noggin

Structural supports that provides stability and structure to the deck base – to be applied/fixed before deck boards are laid. Typically these are cut from the same material as that used to construct the deck base, for which we recommend our structural grade deck joists, available in either 2.4m or 3.6m lengths.

3. Deck Boards

We have a selection of widths, lengths and thickness of deck boards to suite your project and budget. We recommend that the thickness and length of deck board used should increase with the size of you deck. In the case of our Professional 28mm x 140mm deck boards, they are 20mm wider than our value and essential boards providing 17% more coverage. Despite being more expensive you will need less of them and due to their thickness they will last longer.

4. Newel Post

In a range of lengths and styles to accommodate your chosen style of spindle or balustrade look. Commonly a 1200mm long newel post is fixed to external deck frame/joist using two carriage bolts to secure. If you are a confident DIY’er you can use a 2400mm deck post to form a leg of your raised deck, although we advise you seek technical/expert advise before doing so.

5. Hand/Base Rail

These are the hand/top rail which are rebated to accommodate the softwood spindles in between the newel posts (American & metal will also require an American top & base rail and when using glass panels you will also need a ‘hand rail & base rail fillet’ accommodated in both the hand and base rails) There are two commonly used styles and lengths to choose from’ premium that includes spacing fillets to equally space the spindles and standard that does not include fillets. Both come in two lengths 1795mm and 2395mm (Metal and Axxys styles are restricted to one length) you may need to cut down to fit between the newel posts spacing with in your deck as with some sizes of deck it is not always possible to plan newel post spacing to the hand rail lengths available

6. Spindles & Balusters

Range of styles and sizes that infill between the posts' to achieve the balustrade look and feel to best suite you. Metal, glass and softwood spindles/panels should be equally spaced to a maximum of 100mm gap apart.

7. Stair Stringer

For decks that are raised to accommodate uneven ground, steps may be required. These are easily achieved by using three stair stringers for a maximum width of 1000mm. For widths over 1.0m use and extra stringer every 400mm. Cut your deck boards to the appropriate width and fix to the treads to complete the steps

Planning your decking area

Love it or hate it, garden decking is the more economical option and allows for the finish of your choice.

Why Decking and Not Patios?

Even though decking has been around for years, people seem to think that it is anovelty. Many people will tell you that they want it because it looks nice but they can’t afford it or it’s complicated, well decking has never been easier or cheaper.

Starting at under £1.66 per metre, our decking boards offer premium quality at low prices. Made from slow grown pine they are already stable enhanced further by kiln drying before treatment to reduce twisting and warping. They are then pressure-treated forcing anti rot preservative in to the deck boards to BS8417 or Use Class 3 giving a minimum 10 year guarantee against rot for longer life.
