As the ship

Traditionally decks for outdoor adjacent tohome areas are made of wood. The result is a likeness of the deck. Wooden floor guarantees not only the thermal insulation layer, but also sets a special mood. The overall effect - a feeling of coziness and comfort.


Effectively looks this board and loggias, verandas

The analogy with the deck of the ship and determined appearancethe names of the building material, which is used for the plank walkways - decking (translated from English deck is a deck). By and large, decking can be called almost all the varieties of terraced surfaces. This deck, decking, garden flooring WPC, that is, those materials that are used for a variety of finishes tracks, open walkways, decks.

Due to resistance to moisture and temperature changes is useful decking open onto balconies

Which wood is best?

Thanks to modern production technologiessuch materials can be obtained resistant to soaking, delamination, rotting terraced cover. For their manufacturing businesses use special woods that have inherently resistant to rot. These include cedar, larch, tropical wood: Padauk, Merbau, iron tree, sapelli, irko, bangkirayu. Greater preference is given to all the same tropical wood as it adapted to the humid environment, it has a natural protection against the destructive processes of decay. Those producers who made the garden parquet from exotic wood, give its products to 50-year warranty.

Paul will last up to 50 years, if the garden is paved with high-quality parquet

The performance of larch and cedarmuch lower. But modern processing materials, as well as quality care can extend the service of this material for many years and significantly save costs.

Arguments for"

The use of modern decking for terracesIt has a lot of advantages. They provide an opportunity to visually transform the garden or suburban area, clearly define the area of ​​the estate, arrange the necessary accents. Decking board transforms the concrete or asphalt coating, embankments, unpaved area. This preparatory work is minimized. This material allows you to create a kind of bordering pools, decorative fountains, artificial ponds. Heated sun wooden floor much more pleasant and safer than the cold and slippery tiles, hot asphalt or concrete. Thanks to this feature decking is used not only for the transformation of suburban housing estates, suburban areas, this material is justified in saunas and baths, indoor swimming pools, conservatories and greenhouses.

garden decking

The proximity of the water has no effect on the material

Modern garden decking may look notOnly traditional wooden flooring. It could be square modules size - 30x30 or 50x50. Among them is going flooring. The module includes a substrate having fixed thereto wooden slats sipes that match the pattern. The substrate may be wood or plastic frame. This makes it easy to lay the blocks on the ground even. The main thing that at the site was well organized drainage system. To the modules tightly formed on the allotted land for this purpose, pre-aligned and well-compacted soil, sometimes it creates an additional substrate of sand or gravel.

Features stacking

To open areas that are often subject toprecipitation, it is recommended to use the deck board with rounded upper edges. With its smooth surface, it may have additional longitudinal grooves, which create a non-slip effect. Smooth decking looks good on the balconies, covered terraces, roofed verandas. It is very practical, since it is well washed and cleaned of litter.

Specific sizes for this type of boards is notthere - each manufacturer they own. With a thickness of 20 mm in width can vary from 70 to 180 mm, and the length - from 1.5 to 6 meters. This decking is laid on wooden joists of the same breed in increments of 1 m to avoid torsion of the material. Between boards gap left in 3-5mm for water drainage and ventilation. In the process of creating flooring necessarily provide the base bias. This is done in order to prevent water from going under the floor, and flowed freely in the drainage.

Advantages of WPC

Manufacturers have repeatedly experimented withDecking as a material for the decking. Compound this with the plastic material has not justified. The result is a very expensive coat. An alternative solution was the material produced by wood-polymer extrusion (the so-called WPC). Decking WPC has a very high strength, it retains some natural wood properties (low thermal conductivity) is not affected by moisture. The amount of wood in the KDP range from 34 - to 68 percent.

This type of coverage allows the designer to implement many ideas on the design of pavilions, terraces, pavilions

Decking polymer has a very nicedecorative appearance, which almost completely mimics the real tree. a quickly assembled flooring Thanks to the flush-mounted system. At a certain distance of the special latches are placed, which are part of a longitudinal groove. Self supporting profile is attached to the pre-installed or the beams to the foundation. The base can also be created from fine crushed stone or gravel.

In ennobling private estates in the openair, it is desirable to rely on the assistance of highly skilled workers who will be able to carry out installation of decking at a high level. Performed quality of work - the guarantor of a long and reliable operation of terraced fields.
