decking supports

A squeaky, bouncy or uneven decking can be very annoying, and irritating, not only that it can actually cause a safety issue.

Don’t be tripped up by an uneven deck – use your noggin and incorporate strengthen timbers when purchasing your decking boards or decking kit, available from £9.99 it’s a relatively small amount to pay and will offer piece of mind that your new decking is the strongest it can possibly be.

Reinforce your decking framework. Ideally at point of installation, although it’s easy enough to upgrade an existing deck.

Installing strengthening timbers will eliminate that annoying squeak and you will be left with a sturdy, level deck that will look great and stand the test of time with no annoying sounds or bouncing.

What are strengthening braces?

Also know as Noggins’, these short pieces of timber sit horizontally in-between the rafters, the amount you will need depends on the size of the decking, for very small decks only a few will be needed, for larger areas space them 400mm apart and offset them slightly so it’s easier to screw them in from the back of the joist.

Offset the noggins so it’s easier to screw them in from the back of the joist.
