Create a deck from our best hardwood.
Create a beautiful and practical outdoor living space quickly and easily with one of our superb Ipé Deck Kits
Over the years our deck kits have proved extremely popular with landscapers, garden designers and do-it-yourselfers alike. They are easy to build, contain all the essential components, and can easily be expanded and/or personalised with, railing and trellis.
Our standard deck kit contains everything you need* to build a ground level deck over an existing solid base such as a patio (does not need to be level), or if no base exists, it can be built over a series of paving stones placed on solid ground.
*excluding screws and tools

Please note Deck Kits do not include fascia boards. We're aware customers may only require one end of their deck to be covered by fascia, or may require all 4 sides to be covered. Please consider this when choosing your Deck Kit, if fascias are required please click here to choose the suitable length and add to your order.
Assembly of our deck kits is relatively simple and only a few basic tools are required. Joists are screwed together to form the frame which sits in the Easyfix rubber joist supports. The frame is then levelled using the rubber shims before the deck boards are screwed down - it really is that simple!
Levelling with rubber shims is suitable when the base is slightly uneven. If the base is more than just slightly uneven we suggest that you order one or more of our treated Southern Yellow Pine posts which can be cut into short lengths and screwed to the frame to act as legs.
Deck kits are supplied with detailed instructions so you really can’t go wrong, but if you are unsure about any construction details or you have any general questions our knowledgeable customer support team is only a phone call away.
Our smooth all round Ipé - Tabebuia serratifolia (pronounced "Ee-Pay") decking is 1st Grade which means that it is the best available. It is air dried for additional stability and finished on 4 sides with eased edges. Ipé is a South American hardwood that is one of the hardest woods on earth (3 times harder than oak!). Due to its hardness and natural ability to resist decay, Ipé will provide many years of service.
Ipé wood has a natural, rich, dark brown colour with occasional yellow tints and yellowish-brown sap. Left unstained it will gradually age to a lighter brown with grey overtones. However, Ipé can be stained to retain its rich, dark brown colour or it can be stained to give it a glossier finish.
Due to Ipé's immense strength and density, in most circumstances it is unnecessary for boards to exceed 21mm thickness for any load bearing puropses. It is ideal for commercial projects where heavy wear is expected or projects near water.
