Wooden fencing taking into consideration Cost, Durability & Design

Wooden Fencing

Today has been a busy today with the winter months closing in fast and the recent high winds customers are contacting us asking for information and prices on Garden Fencing.

As a company we are able to offer our customers a wide variety of wooden, Concrete and Plastic Fencing options. However there are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration when deciding on the most suitable form of fencing for your garden.

Customers decisions on fencing tend to be based around a couple of differing factors -

  • Cost
  • Durability
  • Design.

The most cost effective fencing designs aren’t always the most durable, likewise the most decorative forms of fencing aren’t always the cheapest or the strongest. So the question is what wooden fencing is cost effective, durable and looks good ?

Opinions will vary dependant on individual taste however here are a couple of designs that we have come across lately they appear to tick all of the boxes and at the same time wont break the bank. I have enclosed in the article a few images that we have found to give you an idea of what they will look like in situ. These particular wooden panels will however need to be installed using a professional tradesman or at the least a competent DIY enthusiast as the fencing is sold in individual boards and will therefore require building on site.

Garden Fencing



What fencing not to buy if the garden is in an exposed area.

One particular style of fencing panel that I would advise against if you have an exposed garden that is subject to high winds is the “ Waney Lap “ fence panel. We sell a large number of these particular type of fence panel however they wont last very long if exposed to severe weather conditions.

Bathroom and Kitchen Laminate Flooring

Quickstep Impressive Waterproof laminate flooring Range

Which Laminate flooring ranges have sold well in 2017. Quickstep flooring launched a new Laminate product into the market they have named it as the most natural & waterproof Laminate ever.

So does the Impressive Laminate floor meet expectations. The list of advantages of this particular product set the bar high for quickstep however in the past they have always remained true to their word and have never let us down.


What makes Quickstep Waterproof Laminate floor unique


  • Lifetime Warranty on the glue-less installation system.
  • 10 Year wet area warranty
  • Scratch Guard Coated
  • Effortless cleaning.
  • Commercially graded flooring


Commercial Laminate Flooring

Waterproof flooringKitchen floors

Each unique embossed board is also available in a flooring range “ Impressive Ultra “ this range is designed at the commercial market which has excessive usage and high amounts of traffic we have supplied businesses such as nightclubs and car showrooms with the Impressive ultra.


The Quickstep Impressive range of Laminate has quickly become one of our best selling lines, this we feel is due to the character of the floor colour and design coupled with the Hydro seal waterproof coating on all board joins and bevels. Water sits on the joint forming droplets that can be easily wiped away. Customers are confident that with the new Hydro-seal Warranty on the boards they are able to fit laminate in high moisture rooms such as Kitchens and bathrooms.


Our opinion of the New quickstep ultra Range

Overall the quickstep Impressive Laminate flooring range has more than met expectations the designs are great and the product is sitting at the right price point. Year on year sales across the quickstep range have remained flat however this particular product has taken a chunk of overall Laminate sales and is gaining momentum. The more traditional safe ranges and colour designs are becoming less popular with the consumer opting towards the grey heavily embossed flooring ranges.

If there are any negative points associated with the flooring it is that this product is a laminate and it is limited in its ability to with stand high volumes of water, if the flooring was subjected to a flood it would be likely to expand in time. Surface water is not a problem however if the floor was submerged it would be ruined.

Whats new in floor designs


A break through in Linoleum Flooring


Quickstep launched a new flooring product into the UK market. Each year the designers create a wide variety of new of floors to supersede existing ranges and keep up with the current flooring market trends.

This year however was a little bit different with the introduction of a new quickstep Livyn Linoleum flooring product.

So what makes the Quickstep Lino flooring special ?

  • Historically  “ Lino flooring “ or Vinyl flooring needs to be installed using an adhesive, it is then surface bonded to the concrete or wooden sub-floor. This is not the case with the new quickstep product making installation of the Vinyl flooring a lot easier and cheaper as unilin have developed a patented multifit click system.
  • The Quickstep Vinyl floor can be uplifted and re-installed if you need access to water pipes or cables.
  • The Lino floor can be fitted by the DIY or trained carpenter.
  • The Lino Floor is soft and warm to walk on.
  • Noise when walking on the surface of the floor is reduced compared to the majority of hard floor coverings.
  • Extra strength thanks to the vertical and horizontal floor locking system.
  • You dont need to leave large expansion gaps around the edge of the floor in a bathroom or a Kitchen.

Our opinion of Quickstep Livyn

We have been selling the new Vinyl flooring for the past 12 months with any new flooring product we are always a little reluctant to give a review until we have tried and tested it. However we are finding that the flooring range has gone from strength to strength customers who have purchased the Vinyl from us and are now beginning to recommend the floors to friends and family with repeat sales starting to come through.

Where this particular style of Linoleum flooring really comes into its own is when it is being used as bathroom flooring or kitchen flooring. It can be mopped and soaked with no negative consequences.


Customers feedback on the Quickstep Linoleum 

So far we have had no negative feedback on the new Vinyl flooring ease of fitting has ensured that carpenters and DIY fitters have been able to complete the job in hand without the need for glue. One aspect which has caused concern is sub-floor preparation the Vinyl must be laid on a flat surface to ensure the best results as it is only 4mm in thickness.


For further information on a range of Quickstep Vinyl floors or wooden floor coverings pop into our flooring showroom in Pontardulais Swansea or Visit us on-line at www.dgheath.co.uk. Alternatively give us a call on Swansea 01792 884828 and speak to one of the sales team.
