Project Summary: Residential decking project completed August 2015, using ecodek® Composite Decking to complete a roof terrace.
Site: Mann Island residential scheme, Liverpool.
The owners of the apartment required a low-maintenance decking solution. A prevailing Westerly wind means that the terraces are regularly exposed to saltwater and rain, and not having to worry about regular cleaning and the threat of expensive repairs was a priority on this project. The 25-year warranty gave the client the necessary peace of mind.
In keeping with the exterior of the building, the owners required a sleek and modern finish for their terrace in a contemporary colour scheme. The Pebble Grey ecodek® will slowly weather to a silvery colour, which will be perfectly suited to the building’s aesthetic.
A local installer was chosen and tasked with retrofitting the deck boards over existing concrete tiles. A low profile substructure was built to provide ventilation, and once the initial order for the materials had been placed, the whole project was completed in less than six weeks.
The client gave us the following quote about the project:
“We’re extremely happy with the finished installation, which means we no longer have to think about cleaning the terrace when we come back home to our Liverpool apartment. The colour really fits in with the style of the building and its surroundings, and we’re looking forward to seeing it weather over the next few years.”
