Decking is becoming an increasingly regular sight in peoples’ gardens. We can install traditional wooden decking as part of our services. A lot of our customers like to combine wooden decking with a pattern imprinted concrete patio. This creates a two-level area that’s perfect for BBQs and garden parties.
We’re fans of wooden decking, and we think it’s a really good addition to most back garden projects. However, for those who are interested in the look of decking but would prefer to stick with one material, there is an answer.
You see, the patterns we can imprint into concrete aren’t limited to classic stone surfacing patterns like Ashlar Slate and Herringbone Brick. We can also imprint concrete to look like wood. The combination or pattern and colour means that you can have an area of concrete which looks like decking, but has the unique properties of concrete.
Pattern imprinted concrete will age differently to wooden decking, but well installed decking should last for a long time. It’s a matter of taste really, and may also depend on the specifications of the job. It’s something you should discuss with your contractor. If you’re interested in discussing this or any other pattern imprinted concrete ideas, remember that we offer free, no obligation quotes, and are easy to contact.
