Essential tips on decking

Wondering what to do with that extra space in your property? Try decking — it can convert an empty space into a versatile living area where you can entertain guests or enjoy a relaxing morning by yourself or with your family.

Building a deck won’t take too long, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg. When it comes to maintenance, you won’t have to worry so much as certain types of decking (like composite decking) are pretty low maintenance.

Advantages of decking

You don’t need a huge amount to start your decking project, and in a short span of time, you can have it completed by deck contractors. To know if decking really suits your needs, check out some of the benefits of adding a deck to your home:

  • It enhances the outdoor appeal of your home.

You have a variety of options when it comes to outdoor decking materials, but the most commonly used is probably timber. Timber decking never runs out of fashion; its classic, homey appeal suits just any style. Apart from that, timber itself is a flexible and durable material. Because of these, timber decks can be seen in a lot of Australian homes. There are also different types of timber that you can choose from. One of the most popular is merbau decking.

  • It serves many functions.

Whether you’re looking to have a patio decking or a veranda decking, you can count on this additional space to be functional in so many ways. You can use it as an entertaining area for guests, an outdoor space where you can wind down with a good book, or a party area where you can host a barbie with friends.

  • It increases the value of your property.

Home additions naturally increase the value of a property. If you’re planning on selling your home, you might want to invest in a nice decking. As mentioned earlier, it doesn’t cost a pretty penny to build a deck; but it can give you high returns when you put your property up on sale.

Decking care and maintenance

You don’t have to spend hours and a huge amount of effort to keep your deck in tip-top shape. Through a simple care and maintenance routine, you can keep your deck in the best condition all the time. Here are a few things that you can try to ensure that your deck remains a beauty for a long time:

  1. Sweep regularly.
    This is fairly easy, and you can do this for a few minutes every week. You don’t even need to hire a professional to do this for you; you don’t need a special kind of training or skills to carry out the task. A tip, though: a stiff broom is ideal for sweeping as it does a great job in removing loose dirt particles and dry, crusty mud.

  2. Pressure wash every now and then.
    If you’re dealing with stubborn dirt that won’t come off no matter how much you sweep or scrub, pressure washing might be more effective. However, make sure to enlist the help of a pro because doing it improperly can splinter wood or strip off the protective coating of your deck. You can also ask specialists for alternatives. Depending on the stain or dirt, they may offer you better options on how to get rid of it.

  3. Try oiling and staining.
    Basically, oiling and staining are preventive solutions. They can make your deck look shiny and new as they protect its surface from drying out. These will make your decking cost more, but you might still want to consider them because of their benefits. It would be best to talk to your deck contractors to know more about your options.

Things to remember in decking

✓ Check the local council guidelines.

Your local council may have regulations on building decks, so it’s important to know what their requirements are before beginning any home improvement project. If you fail to adhere to these rules, you may need to pay a hefty fine and have your deck removed.

✓ Ensure that you’re hiring qualified builders.

Get to know the businesses that you’re considering for the job. Find out if they are licensed and insured and make sure that they have the skills and expertise to carry out the necessary work. You should also check the feedback of previous customers with regards to the contractors’ services. Here are samples of reviews on some of the top businesses in Brisbane:

”I would highly recommend this company. Work was completed to such a high standard and I added a number of extra tasks to the job. Excellent customer service and good communication make them very easy to work with.” - Helena from Logan Central, Qld on ABC Home Improvements

”Jack Morgan did a fantastic job on our deck and we were so impressed with his price and service that we got him to build our new front stairs. We would reccommend Jack for any building/renovation work.” - William from Marla, SA on Jack Morgan Contract Builder

”I ran Alps constructions and got Paul's wife. Lovely lady. She arranged for Paul to be at my place 2 days later to do the job. Paul was really great. Turned up on time, did a great job. Would definately recommend Alps Constructions.” - Kathryn from Beenleigh, Qld on Alps Constructions

Cost of professional decking services

There are things that could affect the cost of decking services, and some of them are the size of the job, the materials to be used, additional services like sealing and staining, etc. However, on average, businesses charge $160/m2 for their services.

To get accurate quotes, you should include specific details when posting your job on the site. This enables businesses to get a clearer picture of what needs to be done. Sometimes, though, they do a site visit before giving a written quote.
