Decking Materials

London Decking provides a complete range of decking solutions in softwoods, composites or hardwoods.

Hardwood hardwood


Hardwoods, are widely considered to be one of the most attractive decking options possessing rich warm timber hues. Although initially a more expensive option they are highly durable, strong and naturally resilient to insect damage, mould and rot, making them a long term economical choice. We can supply a range of ecologically sourced hardwoods from FSC certified suppliers.

Softwood softwood


Softwoods, such as pine, are less expensive than composites and hardwoods, but less durable. Because they are easier to work with they take less time to lay and so fitting costs are lower in addition to the cost savings made on materials. Good quality softwood is often chosen for its bright colour and the fresh feel that it provides, it comes pre-treated for external use and can be stained to you colour choice. We can supply ecologically sourced softwoods from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified suppliers.

Hardwood composite decking


Composites, are a mid to higher end price range option. They are made from a blend of recycled hardwood and polymer and are available in a range of prefabricated colours. They are easily laid, highly durable, completely splinter-free, and require no further treatment other than cleaning. Ecologically their manufacture using wood waste and, by some manufacturers, recycled polymers make composites a high end ecological choice; offcuts can also be recycled.



All decking types need cleaning regularly to keep them at their best; treating soft wood and hardwood decking every year or so with a good quality timber finish, such as decking oil or timber stain will improve the life of the decking.
