How great is your outdoors? If all you see is a waste of space when you look out from your window, it’s time to speak to an expert about building a patio, decking installation or constructing a new summerhouse or garden shed. Why stay cramped up and cluttered in your house when you can revamp and reconfigure your outdoor space? Shedworking has become almost a cult phenomenon, so why not work with shed builders and design a shed that can serve a greater purpose than simply storing the family bikes. A beautiful painted summerhouse can be the perfect place to retreat to on balmy summer days and a wooden deck or paved patio area is perfect for summer dining. The right professional, whether it’s decking installation experts, patio installation professionals or shed builders, will work with you to turn your garden into an outdoor extension of your home, giving you more choices as to where you work, rest or play, while adding value to your property in the process.

Featured Reviews for Decking, Patio and Shed Specialists
Pods Ireland
Decking, Patio and Shed Specialists
"I first met David Griffin of Pods Ireland in early 2013, from the very first meeting i knew that i was dealing with an honest, enthusiastic man who was passionate about his product and extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We have the three Pod types on site in Pod Umna Village, the standard, family and Mega all of which are crafted to the highest standard and finished to perfection. David was with us all the way through the planing and construction phases and continues to be a valued support to us two years since the installation of the pods on site. I would highly recommend anyone considering any of the pods to look no further than Pods Ireland, all along the way they have been professional, supportive and the standard of their work beats other copies of the original by a country mile .

Irish Recycled Products
Decking, Patio and Shed Specialists
"We purchased a large picnic table for our senior yard and two small picnic benchesand a “park-bench” for our junior yard at the beginning of this school year. The products have proven to be of excellent quality and are used daily by the children. They are obviously manufactured with children’s safety in mind. There are no sharp edges or corners and the furniture is strong, robust and maintenance - free! The company have been a pleasure to deal with their products have proven to be “exactly what it says on the tin”. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is looking for furniture of this nature. As green school, we are delighted to be able to purchase an Irish product, made from recyclable materials, and which provides good value for money. Tony Sampson Principal at Carrig National School"

Texas Custom Patios
Decking, Patio and Shed Specialists
"We were very impressed with their professional approach to the project. They quoted a price and brought the project to a finish as quoted. But most important, all projects have unknowns and the personnel at Texas Custom Patios managed the unforeseen completely to our satisfaction. They earned our trust and are deserving of our recommendation."

Southwest Fence & Deck
Decking, Patio and Shed Specialists
"Jamie and his team designed and built an awning as part of a larger backyard/pool installation project. Jamie was very engaging from the initial design all the way through completion of the project. We had an existing shed that the awning was designed around and a very modern look to both our house and the new pool. Once the project began Heath and Jesus took over the project management. My main need on any project is to stay informed. Both Heath and Jesus did an excellent job of keeping me up to speed daily on what was going on. We were under very tight timelines in trying to coordinate with the pool builders, weather, inspectors, etc. Jesus and Heath met or exceeded every deadline they set, something that is VERY rare in my experience with contractors. I would highly recommend using Southwest Fence. Our awning looks amazing."

Backyard Escape Studios
Decking, Patio and Shed Specialists
"We are musicians that use our home to both teach students and do recordings. With the arrival of our baby, we knew that space would become a consideration, and thoughts of building a backyard studio quickly became reality. From our initial consultation with Sebastian Kellner at Backyard Escapes Studios, we were excited to learn that a studio could be built that would serve as a creative space for both me and my wife, more cost effective than a house addition would ever have been. Our 12 by 16 studio required a permit, and Sebastian provided us with an engineer whose drawings facilitated the permit process. Throughout the entire process prior to construction, Sebastian was very communicative, and assisted with decisions on how to proceed. Once everything was in place with the permit, foundation, etc. Sebastian and his assistants quickly erected the studio on site in 3 days. The end result was a stellar space that is currently in the process of being finished on the interior. The work was done well, timely, and completely honouring the cost initially quoted. Sebastian even made a separate trip to our home to complete the insulation and vapour barrier after the electrician did the wiring. This was our first time working with someone to design such a structure, and I can honestly say, that with such a kind-hearted, detail-oriented, and competent individual like Sebastian, we were in very good hands throughout the entire project. I would highly recommend Backyard Escapes Studios to anyone looking to expand their living space, eliminate a work commute, or simply create a backyard "man cave" or "she shed" to get away from the noise at home. Sebastian has integrity, and is committed to your satisfaction, as my wife and I can both attest to."

Should I work with a professional when selecting my patio, decking, shed or summerhouse?

Your chosen specialist will run through your options based on your available budget and space, and discuss potential stumbling blocks such as building regulations and planning approval. A shed is typically counted as a temporary structure but every planning authority will vary in its requirements and shed builders can help work through this with you. Many summerhouses on the other hand will warrant planning permission due to their size and more permanent nature. When it comes to patio installation, or decking installation, you will certainly find working with decking installers and patio pavers will lighten the workload and ensure your new garden feature offers a great outdoor space for years to come! You may also want to work with a garden design professional to plan your garden space before engaging a patio or decking installation professional.

Should I opt for a shed or a summerhouse?

This decision may in the end come down to the space you have available for your garden room. Today, there are many specialist shed builders that offer high quality sheds in attractive and colourful designs that can easily be transformed into compact outdoor rooms. At its simplest construction, a garden shed is obviously a very useful storage place, whilst a summerhouse typically works as a real garden showpiece, there as a garden room to be enjoyed come rain or shine. And it can be constructed in almost any style you wish. How about a traditional log cabin or something more contemporary such as an energy-efficient modular design or a Scandinavian summerhouse of interlocking construction? Customise your summerhouse with lighting, heating and even internet connectivity depending on the core use, whether that’s a separate workspace, home gym or sun-bathed hideaway. A summerhouse can look overbearing if it’s more than a quarter of the total size of your garden so, again, check with your specialist to see how big is too big.

Should I opt for a patio or decking?

Patios are a great place to entertain friends and family over a juicy barbecue and bottle of wine on a balmy summer’s evening. A patio looks particularly good at the front of a large garden, teamed with cast iron patio furniture, and can be constructed from a number of different materials such as stone, brick and concrete. Your patio designer or patio installation specialist will be able to plan an attractive patio design which can range from a simple regular tiled layout to complex mosaic patterns.

Alternatively, hardwood decking is another great way to bridge indoor and outdoor areas, separated by sliding or French doors. If your garden is lower than your home, consider asking your decking installation professionals to raise the deck to the level of the floor so you can step seamlessly outside. And it needn’t be a standard rectangular decking installation either. Go with the flow and add a curved border, accentuated by decking lights. If the kids are making you climb the walls, ask your expert to help you design a low-level play area, painted in bright colours and incorporating a sand pit. No kids? A gazebo or pergola will go well with that timber decking installation – the perfect spot for reading or snoozing.

Important questions to ask your patio and decking installers or summerhouse and garden shed builders:

  • Are you a member of a trade association such as the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) or the Timber Decking & Cladding Association (TDCA)?
  • Do you carry out both decking installation and patio installation?
  • Do you design and build both sheds and summerhouses?
  • Where do you source your materials?
  • Have you completed a project like this before?
  • Please can I speak to previous clients or read their feedback?
  • What is the most difficult part of this job and how would you tackle it?
  • How safe is this proposal?
  • Does your proposal require building regulations and planning approval?
  • Please can you run me through the project and suggest a schedule of work?
  • Who will be doing the work?
  • Are your sub-contractors fully qualified and accredited (by NICEIC in the case of electricians, for example)?
  • Is your quote inclusive of VAT, all labour and materials?
  • What happens if the cost subsequently increases?
  • Is your work guaranteed and under warranty?
  • What maintenance is required?
