Once you have decided on the type of caravan veranda you would like to add to your holiday space, it is time to take a closer look at the types of decking available on the market today.
We can incorporate steps and ramps into most designs to create easy, attractive and personalised access for those with mobility difficulties. All types of decking are compatible with all our veranda designs and styles.
PVCu decking is a popular choice of flooring to complement our PVCu Verandas. This type of decking doesn’t rot and instead of the regular maintenance it only needs occasional cleaning with soap and warm water. Our PVCu decking is waterproof and thanks to anti-slip thread added during the manufacturing process its surface is much safer even in wet conditions. We’ve eliminated the need for clips to fix it down and the decking now features a tongue and groove design for fast and convenient fitting. All fixings are hidden for improved aesthetics and safety and hidden drain holes accelerate water dispersion. PVCu decking is also highly recyclable and lead-free which makes it environmentally friendly. It meets the strictest environmental legislation and has been granted Class 1 rating for surface spread of fire.
Tanalised Timber Decking – Arguably the most popular decking material is pressure-treated wood obtained from coniferous trees. It’s affordable, easy to cut and fasten and, after being treated with chemicals, it can resist bugs and rot. As wood naturally expands and contracts with the elements, timber decking can be prone to some cracks and warping, though this is minimal in our experience. To prevent premature deterioration of a pressure-treated timber deck, it is important to carry out regular maintenance by applying a good quality wood preserver.
Composite decking is a fast-growing decking material. It is a composition of wood fibres and recycled plastic and thanks to its properties it is easy to maintain. Available in a variety of colours, with a soft, splinter-free finish that is comfortable underfoot and unlike timber, isn’t prone to develop surface cracks and deformation. We use high performing composite decking that is resistant to fading, staining, mould and mildew. Composites don’t require sanding or staining, and only need occasional cleaning with soap and warm water or with a pressure washer.
