The most cost effective way to your dream timber deck?

Choose the correct timber.

Designing and proposing a decking structure for a public place is a privileged task. Tell everyone what you have designed and they will look, show them where it is and they will seek it out. The success of a project is 5 to 10 years down the road; does it still look as it did? Is it still functional?

The flowing lines, the symmetry and the perfect balance of natural timber decking against the harsh concrete brings an added complexity to the design and softens the environment. To have this balance is an important part of the design, especially, if it is the public eye and will be for years to come.

From the design we have the balance of aesthetics against longevity, why design and construct a product that will need replacing in a short space of time? The balance is about creating a project that is perceived by the public that their money has been well and justifiably spent on this new project. The design is what people see first, then the material and finally how long it lasts.

Correct materials choice is sometimes more than choosing what fits the budget, is it going to look good in this environment? Is it going to last a long time? Is it going to bring value for money?

Is it the responsibility of the QS (Quantity Surveyor), the Designer or Client? Many projects have been systematically broken down in such a microscopic way to destroy the design and reduce the longevity, but, “that’s ok as we are now in budget”. Let’s use a cheaper product and get it installed quickly……..perhaps we should think again.

To save 10-15% today will only bite you in the backside in 5 years time. Don’t live to regret your choices. When selecting a timber decking product it makes sense to use the best and use it once.

Hongye has recently introduced Heveatech as part of our choice of material for your decking. Read more about the product here: Hongye introduces Heveatech to our timber products
