Improve your lifestyle with a timber deck

by | Apr 21, 2016 | Fences And Decks

Kiwis, we are known for our backyard BBQs on the deck. Having a few beers out on the deck after a day’s fishing, having a coffee while relaxing on the deck watching the kids play in the backyard. Sitting out on the deck watching the stars come out with a glass of wine after the kids are in bed. Relaxing in the spa pool on the deck, cool drink in hand. The deck has become the favourite room in the house for us kiwis. If you don’t have one, it’s time to get one and join the rest of New Zealand enjoying the outdoors.

Renovations and repairs of existing deck

When you repair a deck a good trick is to keep it as much as possible to the previous deck, using the same type of wood and if the treads are composite, make all horizontal surfaces composite. The existing deck in essence becomes the blueprint for the rebuild. This makes for less time and money involved. Planning is key to renovating or revamping your existing deck. Inspect the substructure of the deck and look for splits, sagging or leaning which shows insufficient engineering and support in the original construction. Then remove both the deck boards and the substructure and start over, otherwise if the substructure is sound keep it in place and you can add new sections to it.
