A hardwearing alternative to decking

By Paul Hervey-Brookes

Decking is still a favourite with most people, however this has to be maintained each year with products such as deck oil, and boards have to be replaced when they become spingry and eventually disintegrate.

With the same appeal as decking, but far less maintenance the Madera range is ideal. Madera is long aspect paving, that looks like wood and comes in two stunning colour ways.

Madera can be used on a project to replace your conservatory floor, and outside to give more usable space.

Available in either Birch or Oak shades, this beautiful lightweight long aspect paving looks just like traditional timber but is in fact made out of porcelain. As such, it offers all the natural beauty of real wood without any of the associated maintenance issues.
