Quick & Easy Decking Installation – The iDecking Way

Constructing a deck has the potential to be very tricky and time consuming if you do not have the required skills, knowledge and tools. However, thanks to the iDecking Revolution has changed everything and this is now, no longer the case.

Utilising Hidden Fasteners

One of the main concerns for anyone installing a decking system relates to the screws which are used to keep the deck boards in place. Not only can they result in boards splitting, if hidden away can make swapping boards over extremely difficult and time consuming.

The biggest problem though is that they won’t hold forever! And because of this, you may be forced into regular structural maintenance every single season (this depends on the kind of wood/material and screws you use). When the screw fails, the board lifts up, resulting in your deck needing immediate repair and the boards becoming dangerous, especially if you have kids.

The good news is that a new alternative does exist. Check out the video below for more information:

How To Install a Green Roof

A green roof is really a roof top garden and can be anything from a two inch covering of vegetation to a fully fledged accessible garden with flowers, shrubs and even trees. Offering an outstanding range of benefits, green roofing systems are becoming a very popular addition to many roof top areas and are even becoming a legal responsibility in some countries*.

When you start to think about installing a green roof design on to your property, there are a few things which you need to take into account.

The Planning Stage

Thanks to the M-TRAY® modular green roofing system, the installation of green roofing systems have never been easier. However, no corners should be cut in the planning stage to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.

Whenever you are planning the design of your green roof you need to think about a few details including:

  • What type of drainage system will you require? This is incredibly important and something which needs to be well thought out and designed before the work starts. A well designed green roof can be a tremendous asset to a property with terrific insulation properties helping to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter which in turn helps to reduce heating and cooling bills.
  • What are the goals for your green roof? Is it simply for environmental purposes or do you wish to create a space which you can really enjoy to the full?
  • What visual requirements do you have for your green roof? This is another major consideration to be thought through in the design stages. Green roofs are aesthetically pleasing and can really help to lift a neighbourhood so it is important to think about these issues in the beginning.
  • What is the level of required access? Although all green roofs need to have some access for maintenance purposes some of them really are roof top gardens and there for the family to enjoy. You need to think about how much access will be needed when you start on your green roof design.
  • What is the load of structure support? Every structure will have the maximum amount of weight it can support so this is extremely important to discover and work around.
  • What budget do you have? The creation of a green roof is initially more expensive than traditional roofing materials but there are many benefits to make up for it. The savings to the environment and on energy costs can be tremendous in time. The price you pay will largely depend upon the style of green roof you opt for.

After answering all of these questions you will have some idea of the best design for a green roof on your property. They are becoming increasingly popular and can provide a fabulous feature for your property just so long as you have thought things through properly.
