Blog catch up time

Its been a super busy Autumn, since I got back from my extended summer break we've been flat out adding decks to houses and caravans around the Aberdyfi and Aberystwyth areas.

Ill start drip feeding some new images that might inspire a design you've considered for your own property. Hope you like

This balcony style walk way was added to this property to allow easy access form the first floor to the rear garden. With just enough room for a couple of chairs at the side to sit and watch the sun set.

Busy busy!

Here's a recent Caravan job we just finished on a nice tucked away site near Aberdyfi, Gwynedd.

As you can see form the construction style and railing choice, there is no where that water can settle on the decking or become trapped on the railing style. Unlike a lot of standard ballustrade kits which are sat upon the decking to attach them to the deck-> this causes water damage/rot within as short a period as 3 years!
The deck is supported using the 'post and beam' method to ensure equal distribution of weight, unlike many builders that simply scatter legs in corners or other areas of the deck. Our railings are constructed from custom ordered plained, eased edge and treated timber, which is not available in standard builders merchants. This creates a unique and high quality finish.

Potential new customers are more than welcome to come and visit other decks we have constructed, so that you can see the high quality of our work, and style of decks we produce.

Our waiting list is steadily on the up and currently we have a 6-8 week waiting list. If your in a rush for a special occasion, we can squeeze jobs in, but don't leave it to late!

Were more than happy to give you a free quote and advise on the most cost efficient way to produce the decking you need.

Spring is nearly here, and so is Decking season!

It may still be cold...and damp, but the trees have buds and spring is on the way. Weve just secured our first few caravan jobs of the year and Im seeing new caravans arriving on sites weekly.
We have a few jobs booked in further afield already, especially in the North Wales area, so feel free to ask us for a quote where ever your based. Heres a decking we designed and built for the international golf pro, Ian Woosnam at the Aberdyfi Golf club caravan park

So if you have a new caravan being sited or a older one you want to spice up a bit, give us a call on 07739031593 or 01654791342

Decking season is nearly here in Wales!

Christmas and new years are now past us, an this is traditionally the start of decking season for us here, or at least in the next few weeks anyway.

Most years, the majority of our customers tend to forget about their gardens until the first weekend of summer raises its head at around Easter, and then its mad rush to get all the decks we have finished before the start of summer so that people can make use of the best of the weather.
So why not get ready a bit sooner this year and get your Garden and decking area, or new fence built now, so that when summer arrives its all ready to go!

With over ten years experience in outdoor carpentry, Garden Carpentry are specialists in Timber decking and fencing and all other things garden! We regularly work on awkward cliff top spots, areas with bad access and caravans are a regular for us.
Were more than happy to take on small jobs such as a decorative stair case as seen here or larger jobs such as the chalet above, which was built for Customers at the Panteidal Chalet park in Aberdovey. Were Based in Pennal near Machynlleth, but are happy to work i a large area, all around mid/west wales, Aberystywth, Tywyn, Barmouth, Porthmadog and even in the border areas. So please do ask before thinking you live to far away.

Then there's Caravans! Over half of our work is based on fitting Timber decking, boxing off, patios and stair cases to new caravans. We have years of experience on advising customers on the best way to maximise their space, whilst staying within caravan parks regulations. We try to maximise the standard lengths of timber to ensure you get the best value for money.
