Attractive Decking Installation for the Home
Your outdoor space deserves the best in design. This should be an outdoor living room where you can spend hours having a drink or chatting comfortably. A deck also makes a good seating area around a swimming pool or makes a stable surface on an otherwise sloppy landscape.
Our decks are made of good quality material that isn’t damaged easily by the elements. We ensure durability on top of building you nice-looking decks.
Considerations before Building a Deck
Budget: This should be the priority before undertaking the project. We will help you decide what type of deck you want to be built and come up with a reasonable quote for the whole project. Our quotes are on the nose hence no risk of the final figure being higher than what was discussed pre-build.
Functionality: Don’t just build a deck for the sake of building one. Have a reason for building one, and know how many people it should accommodate at a time. Do you plan to use a grill on the deck? What kind of furniture will be used? We will plan all this with you to come up with the most suitable build for your needs.
Garden layout: Our team of experts surveys the garden before undertaking the project to find out if it’s on a slope and to allow us to take the appropriate measures when building the deck. If it is level, we will take into consideration to what degree the deck will be tilted to avoid pooling of water during rains.
Materials: Decks are mainly made of wood, composite or cellular PVC. We have all materials in stock to fit your preference.
Hardwood decks are aesthetically pleasing. We pressure-treat our hardwood to protect it from insect infestation.
Composite decks incorporate hardwood and polyethylene plastic. They have low maintenance costs and are quite durable even when exposed to varying weather conditions. They offer an authentic wooden look and come in a variety of colours.
Cellular PVC is relatively new in the market. The maintenance costs are low. They are durable and resistant to varying weather conditions.
