Spring decking update


Hi and thanks for taking a look. Since my last upload, about eight weeks we literally havn't stopped working, in what must be our busiest starts to Spring ever, in nearly 20 years of building decks. THANKS TO ALL OUR GREAT CUSTOMERS! 

Here's a selection of what we've been doing in that time. Lots more ongoing jobs to post pictures of soon and do follow our facebook page for regular updates here GC DECKING ON FACEBOOK


Finished railing detail on a recent caravan deck. All timber is smooth finish and treated. Square balustrade rails and boxed off caravan underneath

Here's a custom spec shed we built. 16x8 foot with double lined, 200mm / 8" thick walls. This is a serious shed that could later be converted into an anex of the property, office etc.

Composite decking with stainless steel posts and 10mm toughened glass panels.

here's a garden slope conversion we did in Aberystwyth. The land was unusable previously and now it has this great 9x3 meter decking which nearly doubles the size of the garden.

Gripsure Non-slip decking staircase

We've built a few sets of stair and ramps using the Gripsure Non slip deck boards now and they really do what the name says!

One of our customers on this job had taken a nasty fall down the existing staircase due to slippy treads, (caused by the North facing sheltered garden) and so asked us to redesign their garden access for them.

As well as using the non slip deck boards we re-designed the staircase and added a landing at the half way point to allow some 'down' time on the way down.

Here's some before and after photos...


                                                BEFORE! functional but had seen better days


 AFTER - The new dog legged stair case provides a much safer way to access the rear of the property



                               The Gripsure deck boards ensure a year round non slip surface

                  The steps are a generous 11" wide and have 6" drops making very easy walking

Our Gripsure deckboards are supplied by our local Travis Perkins branch, for more info follow the link.

If you have a timber stair case you'd like designing and quoting please drop us a line or call us on 07739031593
