Composite Decking For A Large Corner Plot

Project Background

Situated in Sutton Coldfield, a large town, less than 8 miles from the centre of Birmingham. Mark Cash lives in a six-bedroom detached property that stands proudly on a large corner plot, on the perimeter of a 20-year-old estate.

Moving into the home in 2013, our customer takes pride in his garden. When Mark first purchased the property, one part of the garden was sectioned off to create a tranquil seating area. However, wanting a bigger, more accessible space, five years ago, he removed the partitions and invested heavily in a beautiful Eucalyptus deck which he oiled to bring out the natural shine. Mark spent a great deal of time and effort sanding and oiling the decking to try and maintain it. However, he found that this was incredibly labour-intensive. Despite his best efforts, the wooden deck quickly suffered corrosion and in a relatively short time, he was left looking for a replacement.

Turning to a professional landscaper, Jake from Bespoke Garden Designs, he discussed the various options available to him.

Jake told us, “Following a number of conversations with the client, he selected NeoTimber® composite decking. His aim was to reduce the amount of maintenance required, compared to their current decking, and to replace it with something which would really complement their mature garden and uPVC conservatory.”

Our Proposal

Following discussions with Jake, our sales team recommended an installation of our Classic chocolate range. Supplied as a solid board, rather than extruded, Jake commented that the boards were reassuringly heavy and felt very durable. He also stated that the woodgrain effect was of a realistic style and a high quality.

The reason we recommended the chocolate colour range is because the customer had brown woodgrain uPVC windows, doors, and conservatory; our chocolate range is a perfect match. We supplied Jake with Classic chocolate boards with the 3mm metal FastClips, corner trims and edge boards.

As a professional NeoTimber® installer, Jake commented that he really liked the simplicity of the clip fixing system, stating “once you get going, the installation itself is really quick.

We delivered the composite deck boards to the client’s house particularly early one morning to work around Jake’s availability and he was particularly impressed with our willingness to assist him in helping unload the decking packs into the customer’s garage for safekeeping until he was ready to install.

We asked Jake for his opinion of NeoTimber® as a supplier:

It was a good experience to work with the company, we have always received an efficient and reliable service from order to delivery and are planning to continue working with NeoTimber more going forward.

Finally, we asked Jakes why he chooses to recommend NeoTimber® to his clients:

Doing business with NeoTimber is a good experience. The customer service is great, communication with all the various departments is always excellent and the product itself is of high quality. [As a landscaper], we have now switched to specifying NeoTimber for all our composite decking projects.
