During nearly fifty years of providing timber decking to Brisbane homeowners, we have had plenty of time to figure out what works and what doesn’t. We have also listened to plenty of feedback from amateur and professional builders alike. Here are a few tips to help make your timber deck one you can be proud of for years.
Paperwork and Permission
Before you even start, make sure you can actually build the deck you want on your property. Check with your local Council or neighbourhood. Get any permits you need before you start. You don’t want to build the perfect timber deck, only to be told you have to take it down and pay a fine.
DIY or Hire a Professional?
Decide on a design and make sure you know how much work it is going to entail. then, ask yourself if you are capable of executing everything necessary to build a deck yourself. There are pros and cons to both approaches, but only you know whether you can do it yourself or whether you should hire a professional.
Buy the Best Timber Decking Materials
If you want your timber deck to last a long time, buy the best timber and the best hardware. Do not take shortcuts, especially when it comes to materials. Make sure you buy timber that is durable enough and always buy galvanized hardware.
