Composite Decking- Product Info - 07/02/18

Composite Decking is becoming all the rage. As we head toward spring, we are fielding more enquires each week at our fencing and decking branch located at Allerton (BD15 7QE). At Manningham concrete we sell 3 Ranges of composite; from the competitively priced MC Deck to the premium Trex boards.

Composite decking boards are manufactured from recycled materials, they come in a range of colours and a wide range of balustrade options. They are highly weather resistant, low maintenance. Composite won’t warp or splinter, it will never require staining or painting, it is fade, stain, mould, rot and scratch resistant and will look as good in years to come as when it was first installed. No screws, no screw holes, just an easy hiding fixing system. nothing to interrupt the smooth texture and comfortable feel of your new Composite Deck.

Installing your composite decking might seem like something you’d want to leave to the professionals but this video from Trex will explain it. This might not be as tricky as you think! Watch these Trex Transcend boards being put down without any hassle!

Rock Salt - Product Info - 19/12/17

With temperatures plummeting over the past couple of weeks and plenty of Ice around it’s the right time for a blog post on Rock Salt. At Manningham Concrete we sell Rock Salt in either a brown grit or a translucent white. Both forms are available in 25kg or 850kg Bags and we’ve special offers available depending on how many you purchase! Although white is a little more expensive it creates less mess when walking inside buildings, unlike brown which can leave quite a bit to clean up! Rock Salt is a natural substance that will help you remove ice quickly. In this article we’ll cover how to use salt to melt ice on driveways and pavements.

Step 1 - Shovel Snow from the Area

First shovel as much snow and ice as possible from your driveway or Pavement.

Step 2 – Apply Salt

Apply the salt to the icy areas on your driveway or Pavement using a shovel. You should notice the ice start to melt away quickly, with thin patches of ice gone in a matter of minutes.

Step 3 – Remove Ice with a Brush or Shovel

Whisk the remaining ice away. Your thin icy areas may completely melt away, but you’ll likely need to shovel away the thicker patches.

Step 4 – Reapplication

Reapply the salt only as needed after shovelling. With a healthy supply on hand you should keep the dangerous icy patches away for the duration of the winter months.

Tips

Consider purchasing salt in bulk. It can sit quite happily for extended periods of time without losing its effect. The benefit of buying in bulk is money saved in the long run and when the cold snap hits, there’s guaranteed to be supply issues.

Try to keep the salt away from your lawn if possible. The chlorine released from the salt will kill the grass.

Keep your salt away from anything metal. It will start to corrode metal when it gets wet.

Salts besides magnesium chloride only work well when the outside temperature is above -7 degrees Celsius. If it is colder than that, sand might be a better option. Sand won’t melt the ice, but it'll provide you with traction to avoid slips and falls.
