    • Materials stored on site before and during building should be protected from rain.
    • Use a waterproof cover.
    • Plan the deck carefully before commencing any construction work.
    • Spend time preparing the proposed site. Remove all vegetation, apply a proprietary weed killer and weed block. To prevent further growth underneath the deck we would recommend the use of a geotextile membrane.
    • Don’t bridge the damp course or cover airbricks if fixing to the side of a house.
    • All fixings should be stainless steel, hot dipped galvanised or coated specifically for exterior use.
    • All cut ends and drill holes on all timber deckboards, joists, posts and balustrades must be treated with a suitable proprietary end seal.
    • We would recommend the use of a balustrade system on all decks for greater safety. Balustrades can also help deflect wind on exposed decks or on decks where you require extra privacy from neighbours.

    What type of Deck should you choose?

    Balustrades

    American Style: Straight balusters, patrice newel and chunky hand and base rails will create an American look with clean straight lines.

    Colonial Style: Turned balusters and newel posts with a traditional hand and base rail creates a tranquil country style.

    Decking patterns are often overlooked at the planning stage, but they can greatly effect the overall appearance of the finished deck.
