Timber Decking

So you have finally decided to do a makeover on your outdoor space, but you are torn between using hardwood or softwood. At Cambridge Decking Builders, our experts can help you pick the right material that will perfectly match your style and budget. Our timber decking services include design, installation, and repair or renovation of existing ones.

The timber decks we build feature a timeless look and feel and highly durable. We make this possible by using premium-quality timber decks combined with exceptional craftsmanship, making our installations standout against the rest.

You may choose among these amazing timber decking materials to transform your old patios, terraces, and gardens into the most favourite part of the house:

Softwood Decking Board

Softwood is a perfect choice if you are planning to build decks as an extended area for the kid’s play area or as a family deck. Our experts can help you come up with a design that will accommodate all the features you need in the area, utilising high-grade pre-treated softwood timber.

Our materials are sourced from trusted manufacturers, guaranteed to last for 15 years or more  with proper maintenance and treatment. Cambridge style decking, Winchester style decking, Canterbury style decking, and York style decking are just among the most popular choices for residential and commercial clients.

Cambridge Decking Builders uses softwood decking boards that are compatible with Q-Grip Strips or slip-resistant inserts. And since these woods come from fast-growing trees, they are more eco-friendly. With all these great features, softwood timber is surprisingly the cheapest
material used for decking installations.

It is important to understand, though, that using softwood decking boards also has some drawbacks. Although it is tested and proven to be very durable and could last for decades and even more, it can’t surpass the durability and strength of hardwood. Additionally, softwood timber requires regular cleaning to maintain its tiptop shape

Hardwood Decking Board

If you are into authentic wooden aesthetics, invest in hardwood decks. Hardwood is undeniably a very durable material with superb strength and exceptional beauty. It is a bit pricier than the softwood, but it will definitely let you achieve that warm, luxurious ambiance in the outdoor space. You know when it’s hardwood – it gets a lot better with time.

You can never go wrong with hardwood, especially when you entrust your decking installation with us at Cambridge Decking Builders. Each piece of board we use comes from a sustainable source. It can withstand the ever-changing environmental temperatures as well as heavy traffic.

Hardwood is naturally resistant to scratches and marks, and less likely to split, rot, or warp. This is why it is highly recommended for outdoor decks than its softwood counterpart.

The best part about using hardwood is that it offers seamless design options. It works well with any designs, from classic to contemporary styles, it looks just as great. Regular maintenance, however, is required for hardwood decks to preserve its natural beauty for many years.

Composite Decking

Composite decking is the best alternative for timber decking. Although you won’t achieve the same natural and rustic feel as that of softwood and hardwood decking, you can count on composite decking’s durability and strength.

At Cambridge Decking Builders, we offer you the best non-wood decking materials with our proprietary composite deck. Our composite decking supplies and services guarantee that you will be able to have your dream decks built without the stress. From design to installation, our team has got you covered.

Composite decking has recently become the crowd’s favourite. Let’s find out why:


– with so many colours and styles available, you can create different deck designs. There are also a plethora of deck accessories that you can easily match with the composite deck.


– No exotic woods were cut to manufacture composite materials. They are made from eco-friendly synthetic materials.


– composite decks are designed to be slip-resistant and splinter-free, making it very safe for kids and pets.


– composite decks can last for a very long time. Its colour doesn’t fade easily, and surfaces are stain-proof. Most importantly, it does not turn into a breeding area for
mould after some time.

Composite decks are undeniably one of the best investments you can make to boost your property’s aesthetic and functional appeal, and most importantly, its market value. It is important to understand, though, that composite decks are not at all the same. Before you finally decide to invest in this project, find out what are the options available.

There are mainly two types of composite decking available today – the capped composite decking and the capped polymer decking.

Capped Composite Decking

– this material is made with the combination of recycled materials and organic wood fillers.

Capped Polymer Decking

– usually made up of recycled materials and no organic fillers.

Deciding which among these types will work perfectly with the design you have in mind can be very challenging. Aside from the type of composite material, you also have to consider your budget, design, and the area where you want the deck built.

Bear in mind that the condition of the area can greatly affect the overall cost of your project. Deck builders may have to do extraction of existing installations or plants and trees to make way for the deck construction and accommodate your design. This is why it is a must that you hire a professional deck builder to help you with your decking project.
