Laywoods Decking - Bristol's Decking Specialist

Welcome to Laywoods

Quality, Professional Decking Installation


I specialise in decking projects with attention to detail and quality that’s built to last. Timber and composite decking design and build throughout Bristol and surrounding areas.


With a large range of materials to choose from I will talk you through the pros and cons of the different options. We will work together to establish the perfect design for your decking. I will produce a detailed written quote along with a 3D visualisation of the project.


As well as looking great, when it comes to durability, its about the parts you don’t see. Preparation is key and I pay as much attention to the hidden work as the finished detail.

You will be given costs for 3 standards of deck frame, full timber frame, full recycled plastic frame and a combination of the two. I give these estimated design lives of 10,20 or 30 years.


Attention to detail is vital and I pride myself on getting the best out of your chosen materials. Decking doesn’t have to be the simple option of straight laid boards. We can discuss options such as picture framing the deck, inlay patterns or herringbone designs, the options are endless. Balustrades and lighting can also bring that extra special element to your project.

Timber Decking

There are a vast range of timber decking boards available, from the popular Scandinavian soft wood, to compressed bamboo. The unique finish of IRO deck, or classical hardwoods such as Yellow Balau or  Red Cedar. I carry a wide range of samples and can talk you through the different options

Composite Decking

There are a huge range of composite decking suppliers to choose from. There are a few quality manufacturers I prefer to use but I am happy to work with any board you choose. Millboards, Trex and Ecoscape are the most popular boards, each with their own distinctive feel and look.

Timber construction

As well as decking I am also happy to build other outdoor timber projects. Pergolas, fences, privacy screens, sheds, summerhouses, raised beds. I am always up for a challenge, so if in doubt get and touch and we can discuss your plans.

The Process


We will discuss your ideas and you will be shown through a wide range of samples. You will be emailed a full written quote including a 3D visualisation.

Schedule a date

When you are happy to proceed with the work I will add you to the list and let you know an approximate start date. I aim to keep to that date as far as possible but don’t like to rush a job so date slippages can happen.

Deposit Payment

I ask for a deposit of 50% approximately 2 weeks before the planned start date, this is when I pay for materials and book deliveries. Final payment is then taken on completion.

Work Begins

Throughout the build I aim to keep the site clean, tidy and efficient. I will keep disruption to a minimum, inform you of any deliveries or disturbances and keep you up to date on the expected completion.

You Enjoy

Your property will be left clean and tidy and all waste will be disposed of.  You just sit back, relax and enjoy your new decking.



Laywoods installed a large raised composite decking for us. We are very impressed and happy with the work. From the quoting process to completion of the work, Pete and Jason were very professional.

Pete did a fantastic job during the quoting stage to look for areas to bring the job within budget. The visualisations Pete provided gave a good and accurate idea of what the end result would look like.

Raised composite deck with wire balustrades 2021 Downend

Pete is absolutely fantastic. This was an enormous job. He was on time, very clear about what was happening at all times, as well as constructive and creative. He’s a lovely bloke and we really enjoyed seeing this project develop from a derelict space into the most beautiful modern garden.

Softwood decking, pergola and fencing 2021 Bishopston

We love our new decking (or stage as my daughter likes to call it!) I was very impressed by Pete initially for the depth of information and choice he gave me about softwood vs composite decking. Pete and Jason then worked meticulously and were very professional. Great job, highly recommended

Raised IRO decking 2020 Redland

Pete installed a raised decking area for us this summer. The work was of a high quality, reasonably priced and the team were very punctual and genuinely nice to have around. We were also very impressed by their cleaning up after the job was finished. Highly recommended - we will be using them again.
