Commenting on the return of the Arbordeck Awards, Lee Heitzman, Trex Regional Sales Manager at Arbor Forest Products, said: “During the past 12 months we’ve seen the popularity of decking continue to soar as both homeowners and commercial businesses look for ways to make the most of their outdoor space, and in particular we’ve seen more and more people opting for composite decking.

“We’re delighted to be able to host the Arbordeck Awards for the third time this year, giving skilled decking installers from across the country the ideal chance to showcase their projects to a wide audience.

“Last year’s awards saw an incredibly high standard of work across all of the categories, so we’re looking forward to seeing what this year’s submissions will have in store for the judging panel.”
