While the weather in Britain is nothing if not unpredictable, the summer months see more and more people heading outside. Whether it’s to soak up the sun, potter around the garden or to BBQ with friends and family, a burst of sunshine makes us clamour for the al fresco life.

High quality decking and cladding can really improve the outdoor areas of your home, providing a space to relax, socialise and adding style and safety to your garden or patio. Being outside has been proven to boost wellness and mental wellbeing too, so it’s vital to get that part of your home design right.

High style with low maintenance

When considering decking or cladding for your home, it pays to do your research and to consider numerous factors. You’ll want it to look good, of course, but you also want something that’s low maintenance and doesn’t damage the planet.

IRO timber ticks all of these boxes. This versatile and unique range is the end result of a careful and considered 7-step manufacturing process that uses the traditional Japanese method of Yakisugi - combining an eye for details with the very latest timber technology. IRO – Japanese for ‘colour’ – comes in a selection of 15 stunning hues, meaning you can choose decking or cladding to blend in with or enhance any environment.

A revolution in timber

IRO timber isn’t just standard decking. The careful process, during which it’s heat-enhanced and coated in Rubio monocoat cream, makes it more durable and offers a much more impressive grain appearance than traditional cladding and decking. It also means that it’s suitable for indoor use as well as outdoors. If your home plans prioritise harmony with the environment, the good news is that IRO timber is 100% eco-friendly, UV stable and HVOC-free – ideal for families with children and pets.
