In response to an increase in enquiries we've begun to produce decking boards in Softwood too. These products are available in DIFFERENT GROOVED and SMOOTH PROFILES and are not the standard, green treated material you might find in Builders' Merchants yards.

Instead, we select from top grades in Canadian Western Red Cedar (as our photo) and American Southern Yellow Pine to try to ensure knot-free decking boards. These timbers are full of character and " New England " charm.

Western Red Cedar is a very light weight, yet extremely weather resistant softwood. It has great natural durability. We call this decking our " Cedar Coverlite " and offer this primarily as a quick and easily face-fixed cosmetic cover to go over existing decks, which though sound in structure, may have lost some of their original appeal.

" Southern Yellow Pine Coverlite " however, is another softwood, but harder than Cedar and it weathers to give a textured, ridged and stripy texture over time. As the soft growth timber is eroded, the areas of harder tree growth become more prominent to give this striking effect.

We've found these products to be especially popular with people looking to sell a property who want to freshen up their garden or patio area - quickly. They may have neither the time or inclination to uproot an existing but tired looking decking system, but feel it could benefit from a facelift. Coverlite offers this to customers who don't want to get involved in heavy joist frameworks when they can just lay and screw-fix new material on top themselves, possibly without using a specialist contractor.
