Summer is almost upon us. It’s now time to add that new decking to your yard. Lets give the yard a makeover that will have all your friends envious of what you have done. If there is no access to where you want the decking to be from the house, then why not create an new opening with new french doors or sliding doors. Don’t forget the value that is added to your property with the new decking.
Wood or timber “decking” can be used in a number of ways – as part of garden landscaping, to extend living areas of houses, and as an alternative to stone based features such as patios that generate a lot of heat. Decks are made from treated timber for the sub floor and various timbers for the decking itself. Merbau, Jarrah, Spotted Gum, Yellow Stringy bark and other hardwoods its your choice.
The deck of a house is generally a wooden platform built above the ground and connected to the main building. It is generally enclosed by a railing for safety. Access may be from the house through doors and from the ground via a stairway. Residential decks can be constructed over steep areas or rough ground that is otherwise unusable. Decks can also be covered by a pergola to control sunlight.
So lets get started now and get it completed before Christmas.
