Located in the South East of Greater London near Kent, Bexley has had a large amount of suburban growth during the twentieth century. With more houses comes more gardens, and we have been fitting gardens around London and the South East with bespoke timber decking solutions since 1997. We supply both hardwood and softwood decking, and will help you decide which is the best option for you based on your surrounding’s, preference’s and budget. For over 17 years we have been advising our customers in Bexley on their decking needs. When choosing what wood to select for your garden it is important to bare in mind the differences between hardwood and softwood timber. Tropical hardwood originates from three main continents: Africa, Asia and South America; the London Decking Company specialise in the use of Ipe, Balau, Iroko and Garrapa wood. The benefits of hardwood decking timber are that it is naturally rot resistant and typically does not need treating regularly after being lain. Softwood decking timber comes from European coniferous trees, which grow quickly resulting in a lower costing timber. In order for it to turn a lovely honey-brown colour, softwood timber will need to be treated on an annual basis with teak oil or an alternative timber decking sealant. Timber decking offers a warm and natural feel to any property or workplace. If you would like more information on any of our decking and gardening services please give us a call on 0208 200 0882.
