Found 18th May 2010
These decking boards were popular in March @ £1.98 but sold out. I know I'm not the only one who was waiting for B&Q to re-stock so thought it was worth posting to alert those who have half complete decks or those who are looking for decking boards.

I've seen them in 2 B&Q stores in Edinburgh. Hermiston Gait and Fort Kinnaird.

Original deal is:

hotukdeals.com/ite…1-9?

size 25mm x 120mm x 2400mm

Barcode is 0525 7751

Word of warning when putting decking down.

If you're planning on staining your deck after being laid, if it's still quite green looking, then take care what you put on it.
I made the mistake a couple of years ago, and slapped some Ronseal Decking Stain after installation, the boards were still quite green, which meant they had been tanalised (treated) quite recently or they had been stored under cover, and my entire deck bubbled and had a nasty reaction.

Phoned all the big name brands of stain (Ronseal,Cuprinol etc) and they told me the same thing, ensure the new decking is thoroughly cleaned before painting/staining, (they all of course advise on there 'unique' deck cleaner).
I found it was cheaper (no cost in fact) to clean thoroughly with a Karcher Power Washer several times, once the green tint has gone from the surface of the deck paint/stain to your hearts content.

Your decking stain will state 'test on small area' pffttt, who bothers with that eh?

Be warned.

it's in store. You wouldn't want it to be online as more than half the boards are far too poor to actually use. A bit of careful selection and it's a bargain.

noted, thanks. To be fair, i paid a lot more a few years ago from Travis Perkins, and faced the same quality issues, had to select them myself, had trouble finding enough acceptable boards and I was only buying about 15.

I made about 5 trips ( I pass 2 stores on my way to work) when they were at £1.98 to pick up 45 boards and I made a trip to both stores the other day and walked away with 5 boards. 2 of which really aren't any good. I'm cutting them so not a huge issue.

There must be some people who pick up the **** between my visits!

I bought a stack of the cheap decking but a month later Iafter installing i am 6 lengths short. B&Q had restocked with more of the same dimensions but it has a different profile, looks similar but the side grooves start 5mm in instead of 15mm. What do yours have?

Check again with B&Q. Check the barcodes. The ones I got the other day were definately the same.
