What You Should Know about Decking

If you’re looking to update the look of your home, you can easily do this with a simple repainting job. However, if you want something that will upgrade your property and increase its value, you might want to consider decking.

Building an outdoor decking does not cost as much as other home additions, and a composite decking, for instance, only requires minimal maintenance. There are many other advantages to constructing a deck. Check out this list so that you can better weigh your options and figure out if decking really suits you.

What are the advantages of decking?

  1. It’s functional.
    Patio decking, veranda decking, roof decking — whatever you are planning to have, a deck can guarantee extra space in your property. Typically, homeowners use this area for lounging and relaxing or entertaining guests. You can also have a nice barbie here or host a party with your friends and neighbours.

  2. It’s appealing.
    It can’t be denied that adding a deck to your home contributes to its aesthetic appeal. With a variety of styles and designs to choose from, you can definitely find something that will best suit the design and colour scheme of your house. One of the most commonly preferred type is timber decking. Timber is quite a flexible material, so it’s easy to let it blend with various kinds of styles and surroundings. Moreover, there are different types of timber that you can use — merbau decking, for example.

  3. It increases property value.
    You may not see yourself selling your home in the near future, but it will certainly be beneficial for you to make some improvements here and there. You never know, you may find a better property somewhere, and you’ll be thankful that you can have your house sold for a high amount.

How can I keep my deck in tip-top condition?

As mentioned earlier, it doesn’t take much to maintain a deck. A little effort can go a long way, and allotting a few minutes of your time would already be fine. Here are some care and maintenance tips to ensure that your decking always looks brand new:

  • Regular sweeping
    This is very simple; you don’t need to have some sort of special skill or training to be able to do this. Also, it won’t eat up a huge portion of your time; you can even do this on a weekly basis. Using a stiff broom for sweeping is ideal since it can get rid of loose dirt as well as dry and crusty mud.

  • Pressure washing
    This is a good alternative to sweeping, especially if you’re dealing with stubborn dirt that just won’t come off no matter how hard you scrub or sweep. This may even be a better option because if you happen to scrub off dirt so intensely, you risk damaging the surface of your deck. But of course, pressure washing has its downside too. While it can be effective for cleaning, it can strip off the protective coating of your deck or splinter wood.

  • Oiling and staining
    This is a preventive measure that you might want to look into. Your local deck builders may offer this to you from the get-go, and you should thoroughly discuss this option with them so that you can be certain it’s going to be worth it. Sure, this will increase your expenses, but oiling has sealing capabilities that can help protect your deck from drying out and losing its sheen. Meanwhile, staining can give your deck a lustrous look and keep it looking good for several years.

What are the things to check before building a deck?

Guidelines from your local council

Visit your local council and inquire about their requirements for decking. This is crucial because failure to follow your council’s regulations can lead to a hefty fine or the removal of your deck.

Decking plans

Draw up a plan for your decking project. It will help you keep track of every detail as well as the progress of your deck construction. Specify the size and materials that you want. Apart from doing your own research, you should also try consulting builders in your area. They can advise you on whether composite or timber decks are more appropriate for your needs.

Qualifications of builders

Ensure that you’re dealing with licensed contractors who can deliver top-notch work. Have a look at their portfolio to see the quality that they can produce. It will also help to read feedback about them. Check out these reviews on some of the top decking businesses in Sydney:

”My experience with Handymantastic was great. I would definitely use them again and I recommend them to anyone else who needs work done around the house or at work.” - Jaime Campbell on Handymantastic Group

”Very thorough quoting and good quality installation work carried out. Was consulted throughout the job where decisions needed to be made to ensure expectations were met” - John from Rodd Point, NSW on Sylvania Investments

”I recently got a Deck and Pergola built through Archi Bldg & Construction. Kian (from Archi) was very methodical about his approach, not leaving much to assumption. He had everything mapped out and worked accordingly to the proposed plan. His team was very switched ON and finished the entire in 3 days. They accommodated our requests to add features at no extra cost. Highly recommended.” - Raj Singh on Archi Building Group

How much do decking services cost?

Deck builders usually charge around $160/m2 for their services. There are some variables that can affect pricing, though. For instance, your preferred size and materials for your deck will determine the amount that you need to shell out. Naturally, the bigger the deck that needs to be built, the more time and resources are required to complete the job.
