No, cannot provide our products as 'Trade' or 'Supply Only'. All our products are installed by our Lakeland Verandahs professional installers & fitters.
There are three main areas in which Lakeland Verandahs operates – Homeowners, Holiday Homes (Park Homes & Caravans) and Commercial clients. All three use the same high-quality range of products including UPVC Deckboard, Fencing and Balustrading. The services offered are different, but all come with the same attention to detail and level of customer service we pride ourselves on.
For homeowners who want to add a new dimension to their gardens at their residential properties - we offer a bespoke service from start to finish including deck removal and full installation.
Park Home and Holiday Home owners who want to add a deck to their lodges and caravans - we still offer the same tailored customisation options, taking into consideration plot size, lodge styles and park regulations.
Commercial provides unique solutions to corporate and commercial clients. From family-friendly environments such as cafés and restaurants to high traffic and light-industrial uses such as building sites and garden-centres, we have an eco-friendly solution for most requirements.
Unlike most decking guarantees which only cover the deckboards - our 10 year guarantee covers the decking, balustrade, fencing, accessories, tanalised timber subframe, aluminium subframe and full installation. In the unlikely event something needs fixing or replacing, we’ll do it free of charge – we don’t just refund a percentage of the original cost like other companies do.
Timber decks are likely to be the cheapest you’ll find, but even the expensive ones come with a whole host of problems:
Not at all, in fact an uneven area is often the reason why people choose decking – to make it more accessible and usable.
Underneath decking boards sits a subframe – in the same way that floorboards sit on top of joists inside your house. A sturdy subframe is important for the stability and safety of any deck – even a low level one!
Traditionally decking subframes are made from timber, which is treated with a preservative to help protect from the natural aging process and decay over time.
We can also provide the option of an aluminium subframe to provide total peace of mind that the hidden foundations of your decking will not deteriorate over time and remain completely maintenance free.
The cheaper composites are made of a lower quality recycled UPVC and/or a WPVC mix and some may even have a rubber content (This isn’t good for fire provision and structural properties).
Cheap decking providers tend not to offer installation and will only do a supply only service.
Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. At face value composite decking is more expensive than some timber decking, but it is actually more cost-effective and better value when you consider;
You will only need to invest in Lakeland Verandahs UPVC Decking, Fencing & Balustrades once, whereas you will probably need to replace timber two or three times over time.
Timber decking becomes unsafe and unusable for many months of the year due to slippery algae and rot.
UPVC decking is waterproof and rot proof and features our anti-slip surface so it stays safe to use whatever the season, whatever the weather.
Think about the time and continued cost of maintaining a timber deck, factor in the expense of paint or stain, repairs and pressure washing and it soon adds up.
No matter how much time and money you spend maintaining a timber deck, it will never look as good as it did when it was new.
UPVC decking just needs cleaning occasionally with soapy water to keep it looking as fabulous as it did the day we installed it for you.
