A holiday home should be a place to relax and enjoy your free time in beautiful surroundings – a chance to get away from the daily stress of work, leaving the hassle of housework and home improvements behind.
So surely the last thing you want to have to contend with while you’re away from the hustle and bustle of the rat race is to tackle major maintenance on your lodge or caravan.
This is one of the many reasons that uPVC decking is becomingly increasingly popular with holiday home owners, as well as caravan and holiday parks, as one of Cumbria and the Lake District’s leading suppliers and installers have discovered.
Lakes Decking, established three years ago and based in Penrith, offer a choice of materials to suit different needs, tastes and budgets. They began installing the Liniar range after uPVC had been specifically requested for a job and they have noticed a steady increase in popularity ever since.
A rejuvenated deck can make an astonishing difference, as one of Lakes Decking’s recent projects illustrated perfectly.
“We received an inquiry from a couple with a lodge on the Crook O Lune Holiday Park near Lancaster,” said Tony White, managing director of Lakes Decking. “It’s a little way out of our normal area but we were happy to follow it up.
“Their existing timber deck was old, tired and had seen much better days. The clients, Mr and Mrs Bridges, had grown weary of maintaining it and wanted to replace it with something that wouldn’t need treating or staining, something they could just give a quick hose down when needed.
“They were impressed when we showed them the Liniar range and they decided that’s what they wanted. They particularly liked the attractive woodgrain style and choice of colours.
“We removed the old deck and fitted the new one in three days and they were absolutely delighted with the result.”
William Bridges said: “Tony and his team did a very professional job of replacing our old wooden decking with a new, superior uPVC one, which was very well designed and constructed. It more than exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend Lakes Decking.”
Tony is confident that many more people will opt for uPVC in the future.“Plastic decking solutions are becoming increasingly popular with anyone looking for a cost-effective and low-maintenance solution to creating more outside space.
“We’re highly experienced at installing this type of decking and delighted to supply the Liniar range. It’s recognised as being one of the most modern and innovative products available in the uPVC field – helping us to have some very satisfied customers!”
