Channel 5’s Cowboy Builders Features Dura Deck As Remedial Make Over

By Stuart Burns November 26, 2013

Channel 5’s programme Cowboy Builders tracks down the UK’s most terrible tradesmen and put right their botched jobs. The show’s presenters, Dom Littlewood and Melinda Messenger, stand up for aggrieved consumers everywhere and also use their expertise to advise viewers on how to carry out a successful building project.

In the programme aired on 19th November, Melinda and Dom are in Bottisham, near Cambridge, on the trail of a cowboy who builds new homes but overcharges astronomically for his work. As part of their remedial measures to a new-build detached house, they installed Dura Composites timber composite decking.

Dura Deck is an eco-friendly, anti-slip garden decking which combines traditional wood appearance with composite technology providing a long life and low maintenance. Concealed fixings ensure barefoot safety and professional appearance.

The installation at Bottisham used  295mm wide boards which made it twice as quick to lay compared to standard decking boards of 145mm width. The boards are a hollow core design making them lighter than hardwood timber. Also, these boards are fully reversible with wide grooves on one side and narrow grooves on the other side, providing the client with two design options.

Natural timber has been used extensively for garden decking for decades. However within years, the surface becomes water logged, and often algae forms, making the Garden Decking very slippery. Dura Deck timber composite garden decking is an attractive alternative to using timber materials for garden decking, patios and roof top garden environments.
