Build a deck

Building a deck or terrace with our ground screws is simple, easier and much faster alternative to using conventional concrete foundations. The joists are simply fastened to the ground screws which are installed around one metre into the ground. The timber is held clear of the ground, reducing rot, greatly increasing the lifespan of your decking.

The method is well established all throughout Europe, and used by many contractors in the UK and Australia!

After installing the ground screws, work on the deck can be started immediately.

Advantages of Ground Screws

The main advantage of using our ground screws is there is no digging. So there´s no need for all that back-breaking spade work, mini excavators or skips. Our installation system is clean and leaves no damage to the garden. So there’s no need for back-filling or repairs. Apart from the perfectly positioned, level ground screws you wouldn’t even know we had been.

It can take days to prepare concrete foundations, where our installations generally only take a few hours. As a consequence you save valuable time and money.
