Whether you want us to supply only or to supply and install your world-class composite wood products, Best Deck has the ideal solution for your unique project and specific needs.

For those who Require a Turnkey Supplied and Installed Product – Important

Best Deck is a national and international supplier of composite wood products to our industry. As well as installing our own products in most main centres in and around SA and into Africa, Best Deck offers a turnkey service with competent contractors on site and that all-important Best Deck single guarantee.

We stand head and shoulders above competitors, thanks to the most experienced management team in our industry and a database of the most experienced installation contractors in our country. Best Deck’s turnkey option makes a lot of sense. We take full responsibility for your composite wood installations. We value our clients. So, our experience, work ethic and integrity do not come at a premium. All things being equal, this should be a one-time spend.

Why you must Ensure That you Choose the Best Contractor

Having a competent, reputable company with an excellent track record install your composite wood products should be of the highest priority. With these long guarantees, one needs to deal with a company that has a substantial footprint. A long, fancy guarantee is worth nothing if you’re dealing with a “here today, gone tomorrow” business.

How are the Costs of Our Installed Products Calculated?

It is very important to understand how the installed square metre price is calculated. There tends to be an incorrect perception that the installation portion is too costly. But, there are four aspects to calculating the installed square metre rate for a specific product. Below, we break it down, which makes it far easier to understand:

  • The cost of the actual product – with the decking, the cost of the clips and screws needs to be included. Importantly, it is imperative that products are considered in an “apples for apples” comparison. Not all companies offer the same quality or standard. Different products are of different qualities.
  • The cost of the material for the subframe – Best Deck uses lightweight galvanised steel C-channel for inland projects and pressure-treated timber for coastal projects. When gathering costs, it’s important not to compare a galvanised steel structure price with a timber structure price.
  • Consumables – welding rods, cutting disks, screws, and concrete are all required to build a sturdy, beautiful structure.
  • Labour – THIS IS THE CRITICAL NUMBER. The three aspects above are similar for most contractors (provided the product type is the same or similar). Best Deck’s labour rate varies from R300 to R400 per square metre for a standard installation. This rate allows us to pay our construction team of three or four people (which costs between R180 and R250 per square metre), as well as some hidden costs (like fuel). This does not leave a lot of “meat on the bone” after that.

A few T’s and C’s apply, but Best Deck will do everything possible to assist you with your specific needs and vision.
