There is now a wider range of decking to create amazing decks in your garden.
The traditional softwood decks are by far the cheaper option but require a good deal of maintenance and usually last around 10-12 years.
Hardwood decking will last much longer than softwood but will still fade over time- still expected to last 15-20 years.
Composite decking has the longest lifespan, with most reputable companies giving at least 20 – 25 years guarantees.

Then there’s the Macdeck System that can create decks way beyond 20 years plus.
