Default Composite decking

Hi we have just asked for a quote for decking 8ft wide by 30 ft long with steps, a gate and balustrade around and a skirting for an ABI summer breeze. The price quoted was 12,900! Does this sound right? First time owner need advice thanks

If all the balustrades, skirting etc.are all composite that could well be the price. Personally, I think it's over the top but we have a member of the forum that sells composite decking. Hopefully, he will post a reply to your post.

There are + and - to composite decking. A lot of members and people on the site that I'm on say that it holds water. My next door neighbour has to sweep the water off his decking every time we have rain. On the other hand wooden decking has to be treated to keep it in good condition. We have wood and the price was much less. We have 20 x 8 feet at the front opening from the French doors and the 36 x6 feet continuing down the side with steps down but no gate. 3,770 Balustrading and spindles also in wood.

I hope this helps.

We paid 4300 for this composite decking/all round skirting/glass balustrade three years ago.

Sounds like the same old story !!!!! If you are tied into an agreement by your park owners whereby they state that decking can only be supplied and fitted by them ....Then sadly they can charge anything they like !!!!. That's the nature of the beast !!!!!

5 years ago we had quote for 12x4 closed balcony on front of our van - no steps or gate there. Plus separate steps with handrail for side door. Quote was about 2.200 then for composite. No skirting other than under balcony. So I think your quote is comparable. We went with that company but made some changes to the design. Our site doesn't limit us to certain suppliers but plans have to be approved before ordering. I can say though that we have been 100% pleased with our composite decking. Its virtually maintenance free - just a wash down with soapy water and a brush if its grubby. It does get puddles but they sweep straight off. Definitely no worse than the wooden ones around us. Its installed with tiny gaps between the slats which let water escape.

I have a lovely 16x8ft full composite deck in stock.
Charcoal boards, white UPVC posts and rails 6 months old.
1995 delivered to anywhere in the UK!

There are bargains around, but as said above, most parks are making between 20-50% on top of the original decking price given to the park. Thats just how it works!
