The extra length patio We do installations of decking from start to finish. Here I have suggested to my client that we extend the decking to the swimming pool. We started with a base suspended in steel to give it a much longer lasting lifetime and all the steel were treated with an undercoat. The idea here is to clad all the steelwork so that it gives you a wooden finish, after all this is a wooden deck. The decking was done first and the screws are carefully drilled into place and after that we started cladding the upright poles before building the balustrades. The client wanted a straight forward balustrade, because they didn’t want the view obstructed towards the garden and swimming pool. To top everything off we really needed a nice finish to the wood and decided to give the decking wood a teak oil treatment so that it can be treated continuously during summer and winter. And into addition to the deck they have asked us to supply them with a wooden folding sliding door to make this patio look fantastic and to be more versatile.
