Before heading over to our composite decking calculator, it’s a good idea to read up on our ranges to give you a little more understanding of their defining features and differences. Compare our ranges to find which composite deck board is right for you. Choose between traditional, second generation ‘capped‘, hollow or solid.

We offer a bunch of inspirational resources on our website and social media channels to really sink your teeth into and get those creative juices flowing. Browse through our image bank of varied installations; take a look at some of our popular applications; or delve into our case study files to inspire your own composite decking project ideas.

Calculate Your Square Meterage

Calculating your square meterage is a lot simpler than it may sound. Take your width and multiply it by the length in order to find your area. Input this area into the composite decking calculator in order for it to calculate how many boards, joists, and fixings you’ll need to build your deck. Remember each decking project is different, so don’t take the composite decking calculators estimation as gospel.

Add The Finishing Touches

We’re guessing that for many of you reading this article, this is your first (and hopefully last) time buying composite decking?

It’s easy to forget your exposed edges when you’ve never built a deck before. Our sales team are best placed to help you calculate your edging requirements since our composite decking calculator does not include edging solutions, as every decking project differs.

We offer a number of different edging solutions for exposed edges, from edge boards to skirting trims. You’ll find a number of helpful resources on our website which demonstrate how-to fix our composite edging.

Speak To Our Sales Team

Although our composite deck calculator gives a very accurate breakdown as to the materials you will require, it is always worth discussing your project with one of our trusted sales team members before going ahead and placing an order. You may have planned a specific design, including curves and diagonal runs for example, which the composite decking calculator will not take into consideration. Or perhaps you haven’t given any thought to a wastage allowance, you wouldn’t want to risk any accidents and end up one board short now, would you?

It’s also important to check that you have chosen the right range for you out of the 4 ranges we offer. Composite decking is built to last a lifetime and our team has years of experience to help you ensure your decision is the right one. The aim is to provide you with added reassurance and peace of mind that you are choosing the right decking range for you.
