Perth’s summers are the best time for entertaining but with our beautiful climate there are so many days in the year to enjoy the outdoors at home. One of the best ways to do that is on your own purpose built decking to your home and yard. We’ll give your outdoor spaces a makeover that will have all your friends envious.
If there is no access to where you want the decking to be from the house, then why not create a new opening with new French doors or sliding doors. Don’t forget the value that is added to your property with 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 such as Merbau, Jarrah and Spotted Gum.
The deck of a house is generally a wooden platform built above the ground and connected to the main building. It is usually enclosed by a handrail for safety. Handrails have many forms from hard wood spirals, pre primed pine, decorative slats or stainless steel wire which would be an elegant finish to your outdoor haven. 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. A pergola to control sunlight can also cover decks.
