What should I consider when planning my new Deck?
The design of your new deck should fit well with the style of home you own. If you already have a covered outdoor area it makes sense to construct something that will compliment this style rather than stand out like a sore thumb. For many people, the shape will be dictated by the area available, but with so many options now on offer you can design a deck that is as big or as small as you need.
No matter what size of space you have to work with, it’s always best to start from scratch and aim for a blank canvas! Don’t just think about the surface area that needs covering, but also how much headroom do you have under trees, or power lines? Also, remember that you will need access & egress right through to a lower level when planning on building steps down to a lower level.
Types of Decks By Decking Cairns Pro
Materials used for Decking
Decks are made from different materials, which vary based on their prices, strength and protection against rot.
The most common material is treated softwood, which is brownish and tends to be the cheapest option for building a deck.
Hardwood decks require intensive work during installation, but they are also costlier due to their durability and elegance.
Composite materials are the best choice if you care about the environment as they don’t contain any harmful chemicals which can leach into your household water supply. This type of decking is more expensive compared to other options, but it’s worth investing in if you want a product that lasts a lifetime with no risk of rot or insect infestation.
Composite decks are made from a combination of wood and recycled plastics such as polypropylene. This type of decking is the most resistant material, it doesn’t require any treatment and requires little ongoing maintenance. It can resist changes in both temperature and humidity, which makes it a great choice for exterior use.
Timber is commonly used for making decks because it is durable and aesthetically pleasing. It is important to know that timber decks will need some form of treatment with either wood preservatives or natural oil such as teak oil to protect it from the elements and insects. Teak can be applied by hand or by using a roller.
How to choose the right type of decking for your home
When deciding on the type of deck that is right for you, there are a few things to consider. You need to check with your building code to see what types of materials are acceptable. You should also confirm that the materials you choose will blend in with the climatic conditions of your area.
If you want to go natural, wood is still an option, but it can be very expensive. Many homeowners choose composite materials such as those made from recycled plastic and wood waste; these are long-lasting, low-maintenance alternatives that mimic the look of real wood. However, they can be as expensive as some varieties of real hardwood like teak.
The benefits of having a decked area in your backyard
There are many benefits that come with adding a deck to your home or garden. These include:
– an increase in the amount of living space available for you and your family;
– a great opportunity to make your outdoor living space more comfortable and fun;
– an easy way to extend the square footage of your house without having to take up extra land around it;
– an enjoyable place from which lovers, friends and family can gather.
How to maintain your deck so that it looks great year-round
Cleaning and maintaining your deck is important as it ensures that you get the most out of the time, money and work that you put into it. There are a few things that you can do at different times throughout the year to keep your deck looking great even while it’s not in use. These include:
– while you’re having fun on it during an outdoor gathering or barbecue;
– after each time someone has used it so that you have no trouble using it again for another party or event soon after;
– once a week so that weathering stains don’t build up over time.
How often should I give my deck a power washing?
It’s best to do it after each time you use it so that it has no trouble staying rust-free. If you notice any of the surfaces getting mould or mildew stains on them, then be sure to clean those areas as soon as possible with bleach and water solution.
How do I de-warp my treated lumber deck boards?
To prevent this from happening, make sure that the wood is dried properly before being installed onto your home. This will ensure they have enough strength to stay in place throughout even harsh winter weather conditions.
Which is the best material for building a deck?
There are several different types of materials that you can use for your deck, but the most popular ones include bamboo, cedar, and hardwood.
Why is timber the most preferred material for decking?
Timber not only adds a natural and rustic look to your home, but it is also very durable and easy to maintain.
What do I need to consider before buying wood for my deck?
It’s important that you keep in mind the kind of climate you live in because wood can warp or rot easily if it isn’t suitable for your area.
How should I prevent mold from appearing on my treated lumber?
By checking that all of your installation hardware (screws, nails) are made out of stainless steel grade 316L. This will ensure they won’t corrode over time and cause any damage to the surface of the wood or its surroundings.
Do you give warranties for your work?
Yes. We offer a warranty which covers the surface of the wood for five years, and it’ll protect against any defects in materials or workmanship.
