Rooftop Terraces are hugely desirable… they allow you to make the absolute most of the outside space available on your property. In a densely populated city like London, every square foot counts!
At ER Group we frequently undertake roof deck projects for our clients, turning unused and unloved rooftops into beautiful outdoor spaces suitable for parties, barbeques, sunbathing or just relaxing on with a good book!
Frequently, significant work is required to make the roof on which the terrace will ultimately sit structurally sound and watertight. Once this is complete, decking is required to provide a good looking and usable surface to complete the rooftop terrace.
At ER Group we pride ourselves on using the latest and very best in materials and technology and the type of decking we fit is no different! After careful consideration, ER Group now recommends the use of an innovative decking solution made in Italy called iDecking for most roof terraces.
iDecking is a complete decking solution made up of a lightweight aluminium substructure and composite or hardwood boards.
Working with Wallbarn, who are suppliers of innovative, top quality green roof systems, decking, paving, landscaping and waterproofing products, ER Group are able to fit this luxurious, natural-looking decking for our clients with rave reviews.
Some key features of iDecking are:
- Wood grain effect – available in four colours
- Eco-Friendly – 100% recyclable
- Low maintenance
- Extremely stable and durable
- Extremely slip-resistant
- Weatherproof & waterproof
- Class B1 fire rated
Not only that but is looks absolutely fantastic!
The boards themselves provide the most natural looking composite decking on the market. The combination of recycled rice husk and virgin PVC provides the most high end, natural finish and ensures boards are hard-wearing and durable in the long term. The compound used to make the boards is coloured before extrusion, helping to guarantee colour uniformity and grain consistency all the way through each board. This is in contrast to stained boards.
Further benefits of the iDecking system are as follows:
iDecking does not require spacers, nails or screws, unlike traditional fastening systems and techniques, drastically reducing installation time and extending the product’s lifespan. iDecking allows you to enjoy walking on a totally clean, smooth deck surface.
The extremely durable and resilient aluminium rail system and nylon clips provides greater strength and durability unlike the traditional wood substructure which is prone to chipping and rotting.
Avoid Water Stagnation:
The unique design of the nylon clips of the iDecking systems avoid contact between the aluminium profile and the ground, allowing the substructure to be laid in any direction and letting the water flow away under the decking.
These are just a few of the features than enable us to recommend and install iDecking with complete confidence. Take a look at a case study featuring an Ibiza style terrace that we created for our clients using iDecking.
