Things You Need To Know About Decking

A timber deck is a great addition to any home. If you’re thinking of building one on your property, here’s everything you need to know.

Many homeowners today are constantly looking for great ways to upgrade the look of their property. If you’re one of those people, you’ve come to the right place. Did you know that one of the best home improvement projects you can consider is timber deck construction? Are you wondering why? Here are some of the reasons.

  1. Timber decks give extra space.
    When you build a deck on your property, you’ll have an additional area which you can use for different things. There you can entertain guests, host parties, spend quality time with your family, relax, and more. It’s also perfect for when you want to spend some time outdoors but aren’t in the mood to go far from the comforts of your own home.

  2. Decks increase aesthetic appeal.
    You are free to let your imagination run wild when you design and build your deck, all you need to ensure is its structural stability. You can customise it to match your home perfectly or have it built in such a way that it easily becomes the main feature of your backyard. When constructed properly, decking adds a charm to a home and instantly boosts its aesthetics.

  3. Decks are inexpensive.
    Compared to other home improvement projects, building a timber decking is relatively and significantly more affordable. The reason outdoor property improvements, in general, costs less than indoor additions and extensions is that most of them don’t need roofing, insulation, and other things that will increase the overall cost of the project.

  4. Decks increase the value of properties.
    This, perhaps, is the biggest upside of adding a deck to your home. Decks easily and substantially boost the financial worth of any property. In fact, according to experts, you can easily recoup a large part of what you’ll spend to build your deck from the amount it will increase the selling value of your home.

How to take care of your outdoor decking

Whether you’re having a patio decking or a veranda decking built, you should know how to properly take care of it in the future. Decks are exposed to the elements all year round. To prevent its quick deterioration, be sure to do these maintenance tasks.

  • Thorough sweeping
    Using a stiff broom, brush the whole deck meticulously. Doing so will rid your deck of dirt, moss, and crusty mud. This task is easy, and you’ll only need to spend a few minutes to do this every week. You also won’t need to hire a business to do this for you.

  • Careful pressure cleaning
    Pressure cleaning can also help remove stubborn dirt and loose wood fibres. Just a reminder, though. If you are not experienced in handling pressure cleaning work, it’s better to hire an expert business for the job instead of doing it on your own. You can damage your deck — strip off its protective coating, splinter wood, etc. — if you do the job improperly.

  • Regular damage assessment
    Always be on the lookout for possible signs of damage so you can do something to fix them before they get worse. If there are any loose boards or slightly protruding nails, you can simply hammer them back and securely into place. For missing nails, you can replace them with longer deck screws. If you notice more serious damage, consult the experts and ask them about the things you can do to address the problem.

  • Oiling or staining
    These two are the perfect solutions if you want to protect your deck from intense UV rays. Aside from acting as a protective seal, oiling and/or staining can also give your deck a lustrous, appealing finish. If you want to oil or stain your deck evenly, talk to your deck contractors to see how they can help.

What to do before you build a deck

  1. Talk to the local council.
    Whether you’re set on building a composite decking or a natural wood decking, it’s important to have your decking plans checked by your local council before starting your home improvement project. They might have strict decking regulations that you need to comply with.

  2. Get the expert help of qualified builders.
    When doing home improvement work, it’s always best to engage the services of the professionals. It will not only guarantee quality but also your and your family’s safety. Moreover, some qualified builders can help you with a lot of other tasks aside from the actual construction. These include planning and getting council approval and permits.

  3. Compare quotes.
    Local deck builders today charge customers an average of $160 per square metre for their deck construction job. However, don’t expect to receive the same exact amount from the builders you’re going to talk to about your project. Their quotes will vary for sure, and they will base their prices on the details of your job. Always take the time to review each quote you receive to see which business offers the best deal for your money.

If you want reliable cost estimates, you can post your decking construction project on ServiceSeeking.com.au. Our builders who are keen to help you out will then be able to send you a maximum of 12 quotes. Check out some of the things their previous customers say about them:

"Ahmet was very professional and reasonably priced. He quoted after he read my job request unlike others who gave me a standard over price. He did the job with great care and efficiency. A++ for service! I would definitely use him again and highly recommend him to others." - Helen from Tarneit, VIC

"Matt is a professional carpenter. He is easy to work with and at the same time he will do a quality job. He is neat, tidy and equipped with necessary tools to finish the job in quality manner. I got him to build a deck and I’m very happy with the result. He actually finished the job before the estimated time and exactly how we asked. I recommend Matt for decking /carpentry jobs and willing to hire him again." - Rasika from Ringwood, VIC
