How to Find a garden decking installation / repair professional

Hiring a tradesman for garden decking installation

If you have a decent sized garden, having garden decking installed can be a great way to make the most of it. To make sure your decking is top quality and correctly installed, hiring a top tradesman is key. Plentific can help you find the best one to suit you with a service that generates lists of tradesman in your local area that offer the services you need. You will also be given access to customer ratings and reviews to help you compare your options before you make your final hire.

What do you need to know about garden decking installation?

Garden decking can add of lot of value and enjoyment to your garden, but there are a few things to consider. Remember that symmetrically shaped decking is cheaper to have installed, as curved designs generate non-reusable waste. Once you have a budget in place you can talk to a tradesman about what you can afford in terms of materials and features. Be aware that different types of decking may be more expensive, but materials like stone last longer and require little to no upkeep. Once this is decided your tradesman should be able to source everything for you, if you prefer, though you can always ask for a price estimate and compare it to what you can get elsewhere. Also consider what you want to use the decking for. If you are planning to install a feature like a jacuzzi, the decking will need to be able to support it. Something to remember about garden projects like this is that everyone will want them doing at the same time of year. Hiring a tradesman in the summer will be more expensive than in winter. Your location in Britain will also be a big influence on your quote.

The price of garden decking installation will usually be calculated in terms of square meters, including labour and materials. If you have a budget in place, as well as measurements, you may well be able to get a quote over the phone. However, it is better to get an assessment in person, as any necessary prep work can increase your quote, especially if it is unforeseen. Get a few different quotes to consider from different tradesmen and make sure to ask for price breakdowns, as these can highlight jobs that you can do yourself to save money. Ask to see examples of their previous work as well as customer reviews to gauge the quality of their work. Ensure that your final choice is adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities, and once the job is completed remember to ask about after-care. Decking can last for years, provided it is properly maintained, and since the average cost of garden decking installation is over £1,000, proper maintenance is a much more economic option than replacing your decking down the line.

Keen to update my rather dull little garden by adding a patio/decking to replace the stones and crappy patio which I have currently. I don't have a lot of space to work with but keen to add proper beds to the edges so I don't have to plant things in pots all the time and in general, make more of the garden.

The team repainted my two bedroom flat throughout and replaced the carpets in both bedrooms and a small computer room. I was really pleased with the work they did. Everything went smoothly from the start and I didn't have to do anything after delivering the keys to the decorators and letting them get on with it! Thank you!

What is outstanding about the men that work for LD Property Services is the personal qualities they bring, they are polite, kind, thoughtful and so hard working. They take pride in their work and will stay later to finish something off or prepare for the next day, they've also worked a couple of Saturdays.
