None Trade buyers beware!
I purchased about £2,000 of decking from Travis Perkins to find that none of them had that green tanalised finish you get from new decking boards. Instead they delivered warped, cracked and brown (been in the sun without any treatment for far too long time) boards. About 60 to 70 percent of the boards had to go back (along with alot of 4x2's). When you pick up decking from them you get to choose the best ones, 'obviously' and put the warped, cracked ones etc to one side which build up after a while. This was the pile they delivered to me as I did not put it on a trade account I guess they assumed that I did not know what new tanalised boards looked like. I had heard this happens to none trade buyers but have always bought from them as trade in the passed (about 20+ years on and off) and did not give it a second thought. I am writing this because if you are not in the trade they will give you the rejects so go elsewhere unless you can pick them up!
