G.K. Wilson has never been the kind of company which turns at your Stockport property, does the work and leaves. We’re the customer-friendly landscaping and fencing contractor, and we go the extra mile to make sure everyone using our services is given the best advice and information. By answering commonly-asked questions on decking, block paving and dry stone walling, we help customers in Stockport understand more about our business.
What type of decking is available?
We use both hardwood and softwood decking. Most decking is constructed in treated softwood as this more widely available as well as being a cheaper alternative to hardwood decking. Hardwood decking is most definitely a more stylish alternative for your Stockport property but it requires more maintenance due to bring an untreated natural material.
Does treated timber for decking vary in colour?
There are always variations in colour between every piece of wood, depending on the relative proportions of heartwood and sapwood. Colour will naturally fade due to exposure to the elements. Usually, most commonly-chosen colours for wood decking in the Stockport area range from a warmish brown to a natural silver grey.
How expensive is decking?
This varies on the size and type of the decking you require. When we visit your property in Stockport for the first time, we carry out a site survey and provide an estimate on costs. All estimates are free and non-obligational. We will also aim to match any previous quote you may have received from our competitors. All landscaping work is competitively priced.
I would like new fencing for my home in Stockport. What do you recommend?
As a fencing contractor, we offer a wide range of fencing. Firstly, we’d have to see your Stockport property to see what would best suit your needs. We have years of experience in supplying and installing fencing to both domestic and commercial customers at competitive rates. Speaking to a fencing contractor is the first step towards a high-end installation.
Is there a choice of posts for fencing?
You can choose between wooden or concrete posts. A good fencing contractor will advise you on what would suit your style of fencing best. Concrete posts are sturdier, by and large, but that’s not to say that that wooden posts won’t do the job. Give us a call and we’ll happily carry out a site survey at your Stockport property before making a recommendation.
What is dry stone walling?
Dry stone walling is created by interlocking stones with each other but without binding them together with substances such as concrete and mortar. The method of placing stones on top of each other to divide land and fields dates back as far as 350BC. In the UK alone – not just in Stockport – there are over 125,000 miles of dry stone walling.
