A well-laid deck, with beautifully scribed picture frame detail adds the wow factor to every outdoor space. A raised seating area, balcony, roof terrace, poolside suntrap or relaxing reading corner … every space, large or small, can lend itself to decking, any shape or size.

We’ve had a great customer experience from start to finish with Shade. Ben and Joe came to visit after an online quote and talked through all the options. Nicola at the office was great at answering our queries and working through the options and quotes with us. They were able to squeeze us in relatively short time scales in time to be complete for the better spring weather and were significantly better value than their competitors.

Their attention to detail was amazing and they took real pride in their work. It can’t have been easy with me sat by the window the whole time working from home!

The finish of the decking was superb using the Millboard product that they recommended. They were also happy to answer all of my questions along the way. We love our new decking and can’t wait to have many a summer drink out on it.

I would highly recommend Shade.

Thank you Ben and Joe, we have had a great summer on our brilliant new deck designed and made by you. We recommend using these guys if you are looking for real professionals. Everything they have done for us has been of the highest quality. Well deserved praise.

We are approved installers of Millboard decking

Millboard Decking 1
Millboard Enhanced Grain Decking

We are professional, qualified and approved installers for Millboard decking.

Following completion of your project we will register your deck with Millboard to activate your 25 year limited residential warranty.

Millboard decking is inspired by the beauty of nature but built to outperform it. Unlike conventional composite decking, it is moulded from selected timbers and hand-coloured in authentic tones. As a result, it looks exceptionally like real wood, but doesn’t rot, retains high slip-resistance even when wet, and requires little maintenance other than a simple wipe clean.

Sustainability is high on the agenda, and Millboard, using a low-carbon material, are the first premium outdoor flooring company in the world to have its carbon footprint independently verified and UKAS accredited, to the international standard ISO 14064-1 Verified Carbon Footprint Assurance Mark.

Lasta-Grip® Decking

Perfect for areas where safety is paramount, but appearance is important.

Edging & Fascia

The perfect finish to your Millboard deck. Unlike others on the market, Millboard edging continues the beautiful wood grain right round the edge profile to maintain the authentic wood look throughout.

Designed to resist high wear points, the edging comes in all the Millboard colours to match the rest of your deck and in square or, unique to Millboard, bullnose profiles. And the specialist flexible edging fits easily around curved edges for a truly distinctive finish.

Fascias retain the same attention to detail that enables the perfect match with the rest of your Millboard decking.

The 150mm Bullnose Board has a bullnose profile to one edge, giving a stylish finish without the need for separate edging. Opening up a whole new range of possibilities, from under-lip lighting to coping for planters and seating, it provides great stability and ease of installation on steps and other exposed edges.

The edging and fascia options are just another facet of the Millboard decking system that lifts it above other timber decking and conventional composite decking, giving it a finish that adds distinction to any setting.

Subframe & Accessories

Although out of sight, what goes on beneath your deck is as important as its surface.

Along with a range of joist supports and self-levelling pedestals for easy installation, it is designed to last as long as the Millboard decking it supports.
