Common Questions About Decking

Investing in decking for your garden is never a bad idea and getting it fitted in spring couldn’t be timelier as the improving weather makes regular outdoor living and outdoor entertaining feasible.

A UPVC deck is where you could head to when you want to catch a tan on a sun lounger, host al fresco drinks and dinner for friends, or just leave it for the kids to play on.

The best garden decks are always well thought out and studiously planned.

Yours will be too if arranged through Lakeland Verandahs, as our knowledge of decking is unrivalled, and we know the answers to all the most important decking-related questions.

How do you clean UPVC decking?

Very easily if it’s a Lakeland deck because it is practically maintenance-free – no repainting, resealing, or staining will ever be required.

Ingrained dirt can be removed from the deckboards using a hose, and if there’s any mould or mildew, a decking-specific cleaner should shift it.

The application of the PVC deck restorer, E2 PVC Deck Revitilizer, just once every 12 months is excellent for reversing any slight fading, weathering, staining or scratches that manifest.

Can you build decking on a slope?

Lakeland Verandahs has managed to construct decking in the most irregular and steep-sloped gardens, so the answer is yes, you can!

The secret to it is ensuring that the posts supporting the decking frame have solid, firm foundations – it’s all in the ground preparation.

Our vastly experienced installation teams always put in the necessary groundwork to unearth an appropriate foundation for sloped decking projects.

How long does decking last?

We provide our customers with a 10-year warranty when they buy our UPVC decking, and it goes further than just covering the deckboards.

It also covers any balustrades, fencing, accessories, tanalised timber subframe and aluminium subframe, or in other words, the full installation.

On countless occasions, our decking solutions have surpassed the 10-year mark, so it could be performing reliably and continuing to look the part at your home for more than a decade.
