TDCA – What Does It Mean

cp-new2Forestrall have recently become a TDCA Approved Decking Retailer, and as such we thought we would share a few details  on what this is and what it means.

The Timber Decking and Cladding Association TDCA ADR LOGO(TDCA) is an independent organisation.  They are a technical and advisory body that operates on a not for profit basis. They provide decking advice including guidance on how to correctly specify and install timber decking and timber decking care and maintenance.

The website for the TDCA can provide you with a wealth of knowledge when it comes to planning, purchasing, installing and maintaining your decking.  They have a section providing guidance on your timber selection, whether to opt for softwood or hardwood.  As an approved supplier, Forestrall can assist with both options, and you can view our full decking ranges here.  Don’t forget that you have additional options of anti-slip decking if you are looking for that added safety element, or you can opt for composite decking, which is fade, stain, rot and splinter resistant.

If you’re just in the planning stages of your decking area, and looking for some inspiration and ideas, you can check out the TDCA Inspiration Galleries.
