Timber price increase favours concrete fencing

14/06/2017
Ongoing increases in the cost of imported timber are further reducing the price differential between concrete and timber fence posts, making concrete a far more attractive option for homeowners and businesses looking for security and long fence life. Although concrete posts have always provided the most economic long term solution, lasting typically four times longer than equivalent timber posts, timber has been seen, in the past, as the cheaper option due to its lower initial cost. However, ongoing price rises have pushed up the cost of timber posts, reducing the initial price differential to as little as 10%.

Concrete wins every way

24/04/2014
Garden fencing has taken a hammering recently with the bad weather and high winds – apparently an ongoing feature of our British weather. Properly constructed and maintained, however, today’s timber fence panels should be more than capable of withstanding the high winds and providing both privacy and security for many years to come. It is all down to the way the fence is constructed, according to Supreme Concrete, the UK’s largest manufacturer of concrete fencing products.

An Alternative Front Garden

02/04/2014
Over the past 10 years the number of households with two, three or four cars increased, whilst the number with one decreased in all areas of the country, except the East of England. Front gardens turn our towns and cities into green and pleasant places to be, yet many are being paved over to provide parking. RHS research found that almost a quarter of the front gardens in north-east England are completely paved, and nearly 50% more than three quarters paved. According to the London Assembly, it is estimated that the capital’s losses are equal to the area covered by 5,200 football pitches.

Supreme Concrete tackles SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems)

27/02/2014
Since October 2008 the permitted development rights that allow householders to pave their front garden with hardstanding without planning permission has changed. If the surface to be covered is more than five square meters, planning permission will be required for laying traditional, impermeable driveways. Applying for planning permission will require you to fill in an application form, draw scale plans, pay a fee and wait for a decision to be made. You will not need planning permission if a new or replacement driveway of any size uses permeable (or porous) surfacing, such as Supreme Concrete’s Perma-Bloc or Tuff Turf.
