Along with our low-maintenance composite decking, we also supply BetterJoist– high-quality pressure treated timber which is imported from the US. This timber is intended for use as the sub-frame of the deck and is fully rated for ground contact. The preservative in our joists has complete penetration to the centre of the timber, unlike the Irish-treated timber which typically has 3mm preservative penetration. As anyone in the industry will tell you, Irish pressure-treated timber is of a comparatively low standard. We are the first and only supplier of this high-quality pressure-treated timber in the Irish market today, reassuring our customers that the BetterDeck name is the leader in our industry.
