There’s nothing worse than being short a few boards when you’re nearly at the end of a deck project. Worse, each batch of timber can have a slight variation in tone and colour so the second batch you buy could look different and ruin the consistency of your project.

For a more uniform look it’s best to make your timber decking purchase in one batch by correctly¬†estimating how much timber you’ll need, factoring in gaps and waste.
