If your deck is going to be used frequently for dining, entertaining or just relaxing; it's always a good idea to consider additional power outlets.

There a number of outdoor rated, weatherproof sockets available that would be a handy addition to your 'room outside'.

Work of this type should always be carried out by a qualified electrician who will ensure any outside electrics are correctly fitted, and properly earthed/fused.

We have electricians we can recommend to you (who are familiar with deck lighting/power), or we are of course happy to work with one of your choosing.

We have found it nearly always more economical and practical to install the electrics at the time the deck is being built rather than at a later date. This will avoid possible damage to your deck by boards being lifted etc.
