Default Decking Costs

Hi all

We’ve just bought a new van and are looking at decking/skirting options.

Basically we want full skirting around the van (38x12)

Also we want decking on the side 4m x 2m. The decking will need to have steps and a gate at each end

All this will be UPVC

Any idea as to approx how much this should cost?

Thanks in advance for any help.

This comes up every now and again !!.. Basically ..Have you checked with your park owners 1st.??

1) Most of them insist on going through them !
2) This is the parks way of keeping uniformity ...( And getting a cut ?)
3) If you are lucky enough to be able to do your own ...There are many competitive companies around !.

We used North Wales plastics about a year ago.

We have full skirting and a p-shaped deck 4x4m deck with gate and steps, two access points to get under the van and then the walkway along the side of the van is 2x4m. We also had some additional steps made for double patio doors.
We have composite decking boards which I understand are harder wearing.

All this was under £10k. I seem to remember when I first started looking we could get a similar sized deck to your requirements for about £6k.

On our site you'd be looking at just over ten grand. We can only use who they say. I think the monopolies commission would have a field day with caravan sites.

[QUOTE=Peter.R;174904]Are caravan park owners the new PPI scandals ?...Maybe

Some of the things I read make me wonder if some parks are timeshare salesmen re-invented...
Although people do not help themselves.
It amazes me how many posts there are asking on financial/legal helpdesks/forums where the recurring theme is, "I put a deposit of xxxgrand on a static caravan, but when I got home decided I could not afford it, but the paperwork says it is non refundable, what can I do?"
Lesson 1 - if you are putting a deposit on something while you are actually in the park and can see what you are buying - the 14-days cooling off period does not apply unless specifically agreed.
Lesson 2 - Read the paperwork BEFORE handing over the money.

I am looking to get someone to remove and dispose of my 18 month old wooden decking and skirts. If anyone wants it for free come and take it away. If you know anyone who would provide this service in Norfolk I'd be very greatfull .
