Swansea Composite Decking Company Expands Display

By | Press Releases, DG Heath

D.G. Heath, a Swansea, South Wales-based timber products seller specializing in decking and flooring for both inside and outside of the house, is proud to announce the recent expansion of their display area to include even more products they have on offer. Representatives from the company say that the new expansion is an even better way for both customers and tradesmen to come in and see what kinds of decking and balustrade options are available for any home project.

“We’re very excited about this expansion of our display area,” Dean Heath from D.G. Heath says. “We’ve always felt that coming in and seeing for yourself what your deck or floor will look like is the best way to help make the decision. Being able to display even more products is great for our customers, and for tradesmen looking for materials for their next project.”

Outdoor decking can come in different types of wood, such as hardwood and redwood decking, or PVC styles, such as granite or walnut. But one of the most popular types of decking is composite decking, which is typically made with an almost equal mix of recycled plastic and recycled wood fibers.

The positives of composite decking are many, Dean says. One of the biggest is that composite decking is impervious to rotting and is durable. “With the changing weather we have in South Wales, composite decking is perfect for homeowners,” he says. “Wood decks tend to need sanding, sealing, and staining, not to mention regular plank replacement. It will last you a long time with very little maintenance.”

Dean also notes that composite decking is resistant to mold and insects and won’t stain or fade after installation. “It’s really easy to clean,” Health states. “All you have to do is spray it down with a hose with a little of the recommended cleaner on a regular basis and it will keep for a long time. There is no worrying about any warping or twisting of the deck, and best of all, no splinters.”

Another perk of composite decking for contractors is that it is easier to install than traditional decks. Dean says, “The installation of a composite deck uses a lot of the same tools as a traditional deck, but there are a number of grooves on the sides with hidden fasteners. The fasteners help create a smooth surface and the end result doesn’t show any screws.”

DG Heath also offers a number of products for inside the home as well as outside. Their doors section includes latches, locks, handles, and ball bearings, as well as doors in several different colors, woods, finishes, and designs. Their staircase section includes brackets, handrails, spindles, newels and newel caps. They offer wall and insulation products that can be tailored to a specific project, and various types of paneling for bathrooms.

The Swansea business is also a verified underfloor heating supplier. They have experience in giving a free quotation and walking customers through the costs associated with installing a heating system under the floor of the home. They are an approved installer of Warmup heating systems and can typically install a system within hours for most projects, without having to raise the floor.

The company has been supplying flooring products for over 20 years in the Swansea area, offering a number of options and accessories including laminate flooring, vinyl flooring, hardwood, underlay, finishing trims, adhesives and levelers, and finishing products and maintenance products.

For over 30 years, family-run DG Heath has been supplying Swansea and the surrounding areas with high quality products including flooring, fencing, decking, doors, garden buildings, sheet materials like plywood, and general timber. Their indoor and outdoor displays are built to show a wide array of finished installations. The company also cuts any kind of timber measured and cut to size.

The company’s commitment to their customers has generated a number of positive reviews from their customers. Dave E. has this to say about DG Heath’s services: “I have been using DG Heath to supply materials for my building, home renovation and garden landscaping projects for many years. It is my first point of contact for advice on product suitability. Always great advice, service, pricing and delivery. I expect to be using them for a lot more work in the future too. Always a pleasure to deal with.”

More information on the products provided by the composite decking company can be found on their website. People are also welcome to visit the newly expanded displays. Tradesmen can also sign up on the company website to apply for a DG Heath Trade Account.

Timber Supplier DG Heath Increases Bulk Purchases To Stabilize Supply After Shortage

By | Press Releases, DG Heath

DG Heath Timber Products, Ltd. has announced that they have increased their stock area, allowing the Swansea based company to make larger bulk purchases of timber. The company hopes that this move will stabilize pricing and supply for local tradesmen after a year-long shortage of timber.

DG Heath Timber Products is a family owned timber supply company that serves Swansea, South Wales, and surrounding areas. With 30 years of experience, the company has seen market ups and downs. Dean Heath attributes their success to a focus on expertise, quality, service, and value. He stated, “Increasing our stock area has given us the ability to make larger bulk timber purchases. With more timber consistently available, local prices will stabilize and tradesmen will have a supply they can count on. The forest fires and increased building have hit the industry hard. We hope this move will bring back some consistency in the market.”

The building industry is not the only one competing for a supply of timber. Timber is also used to create paper, charcoal, cooking, toothpicks, utility poles, and fuel. A shortage can affect many markets from publishing to utility service. This increases the demand for timber on a large scale, causing instability in multiple markets.

Last year, the timber industry has suffered from unreliable supply and unpredictable prices. Experts attribute the volatility to forest fires and higher demand for quality construction material. The shortage has especially impacted the supply of round timber logs of a desirable size for processing and use in a variety of building applications. Round timber logs are processed into many of the wood products used in construction.

The journey from tree to structure requires many steps. First, timber is harvested from a property by loggers. Once harvested, it is processed, cut into planks, finished, and delivered for its end use. Timber is processed into many different products. Rough sawn timber is primarily used for construction. Its value is determined by its species, size, distance from processing, age, and end use. Defects, including damage, knots, and nails can reduce the value of a tree.

In addition to planks, timber is also sold in processed sheets. Plywood is constructed of timber cut thinly and bonded together, offering strength and durability over a large surface area. Waferboard and chipboard, like plywood, can cover a large surface area, but are constructed of smaller pieces of wood bonded together to create a sheet. Waferboard is comprised of wafer sized flattened pieces of wood which are bonded together. It is best used in rough or unfinished applications as it is difficult to process to a fine finish. Chipboard is constructed of small bits of ground wood bonded together. The surface of chipboard is smoother than that of waferboard, making it more appropriate for fine applications. Most processed sheets of wood must be treated before exposure to the elements to prevent swelling, warping, or degrading.

Construction timber, whether it is plank or sheet, is typically oak or pine, with pine being the less costly option. Oak is the strongest of the two woods, but its expensiveness prevents it from being used in large building applications such as wall studs or other framing. Pine is less costly and provides ample strength for large scale building applications, including framing. Oak is often reserved for projects requiring extra strength or fine finishing.

Timber quality is rated by grades and types. Rough sawn timber is generally straight and strong. It may contain knots or blemishes, but those do not detract from its strength. This is generally used in building applications which will be covered, such as framing for furniture and walls or for flooring underlayment. Joinery grade timber has fewer knots and a smoother finish, making more aesthetically pleasing. It is more costly and best used in visible applications including cabinets, furniture, trim, and mouldings.

It is believed that the increased demand for timber and timber supplies will likely continue. Building trends and land development point to growth in construction and related trades. Timber offers a number of benefits, making it an ideal material for construction. It is strong, long lasting, and can be processed into a variety of products. In most applications, it is easy to work with and it is a renewable resource.

DG Heath offers a variety of products including rough sawn timber for general building applications and joinery grade timber for finer internal applications. They also stock a variety of building supply products for indoor and outdoor projects. Customers can find treatments to preserve timber, fasteners, fencing materials, engineered flooring, maintenance free decking, and a large selection of power and hand tools.

Dean Health, owner and operated of the Swansea timber company says, “We were proud to be of assistance in this project. Our company regularly supports many local charities and we do what we can for others.”

Tom’s Cabin required major renovations before it could be used. The service departments, along with DG Heath and other building companies, worked to improve the rehabilitation and learning experience of those who have been affected by brain injuries. Heath states that it is a worthy cause, indeed.

“Our goal in life should always be to give back,” Heath says. “We were contacted by the producers of DIY SOS, who asked that we donate materials to assist in the building of the Roots foundation building recently, as well, and again, we were pleased to help.”

The company donated timber to the second project, which involved building a new structure in Penllergaer Swansea. The project involved a number of tradesmen and other volunteers and Heath says that it was an honor to have been a part of this redevelopment project. He recently held a press conference where he expressed his deepest thanks to the BBC show DIY SOS for allowing his company to take part in this project. The project took only 11 days to finish.
