DIY Decking Installation

The average DIY decking installation project takes approximately 48 linear metres of composite decking boards to complete approx. 1200 screws – often it makes financial sense to build the decking yourself. The estimated cost of using a professional will vary between the £100,s to several £1000’s to build a deck of similar size.
