Helpful Tips

Timber decking provides a practical and attractive solution for extending living and leisure spaces outdoors however installation can be tricky if this is your first time; we have put together a few bullet points detailing a simple decking installation process, if followed correctly you will have built a deck to stand the test of time

  • Design the deck you intend to build before buying anything.

  • The deck should be designed and built in four steps. 1: the supports, 2: the frame, 3: the deck boards and 4: the handrail system.

  • If the deck is to be elevated, it is advisable to consult a professional installer or constructional engineer for advice.

  • All structures, including decking, must adhere to building regulations.

  • You will need: a chop saw, power drill, spirit level, tape measure and a square.

  • Use a weed suppressing membrane to stop vegetation from growing up through the deck

  • Hardwood deck boards will need to be pilot drilled

  • Space the supports or posts a maximum of 1800mm apart.

  • If the deck is more than 600mm from the ground, the handrail must be more than 900mm high.

  • Joists should be a maximum of 400mm apart.

  • Leave a 3mm gap between deck boards.

  • Ensure the deck frame is rigid, square and level (with a slight run off) before fitting the boards.

  • Use stainless steel screws only for maximum resistance against the elements

TESTIMONIALS

Thank you – The help you gave us was truly amazing – you said yes to what seemed an impossible request in a heartbeat and what a difference it made – The house looked beautiful and we’re all so proud of what everyone achieved – the family were utterly overwhelmed by the sheer force of goodwill that everyone showed them
Gordon Whistance, In House Designer | BBC DIY SOS
Fraser we are really happy with the finish and look. Actually the Abodo cladding is main thing people remark and compliment about the house, we’ve certainly been spreading the word about you guys and the Abodo cladding.
Westley Dowdles, ABODO Customer
It was an easy choice to move to using Glenalmond Timber’s floor joist system. It gives an improved specification for many aspects of the build, including acoustics, ease of installation, lack of bounce in the floor as well of course as cost effectiveness. A great all-round product, it’s a lot more than just a joist and the level of service from Fraser has been a joy. Whenever you deal with people such as that, the business process becomes a pleasure
Steven Streets, Technical Manager | Muir Group
The larch cladding we got from you is outstanding. We absolutely love the smooth riven effect. Thanks again for supplying the cladding
Adam Turner, Happy Customer

Thanks for the impromptu tour on Friday. I was very impressed with your set-up there, great to see yours and Martin’s enthusiasm for the business and getting quality products out into the market so we can build with quality materials

Angus MacDonald, Morgan Sindall
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for my order. We received it this morning and I am very impressed with the quality of the cladding and also how well it was all packaged. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who may be looking for cladding in the future.
Steve Holyland, Happy Customer
