The winter months are an ideal time for capturing the warmth of the sun in an outdoor area. If you have visions of a small deck or patio, building a deck is a good idea. When summer comes around, pop up some shading and enjoy your patio or deck then too.
Small construction projects are quite manageable these days and can be undertaken with simple tools and materials. The Do It Yourself (DIY) revolution has made the process user-friendly and plenty of information and support exists for first-time carpenters.
Whether you do it yourself, or hire a tradesman, bringing in a skip bin is a good idea.
Before you reach for a hammer, you need to make a plan. There are a few things you need to consider before building your new deck. You need council approval, check for underground cables and pipes, and deciding on the overall design are just some of things you need to do before you start building.
Find out how to measure and mark out the area and height of your deck, and ensure that it is square.
You need to make sure you build a strong foundation for your new deck, starting with the stumps and bearers.
After the stumps and bearers in place, the next step in building your deck is to install the joists, (these are the beams that will support the decking boards.)
Once your deck frame is complete, it is now time to lay the decking boards.
Giving your deck a new coat of stain is the best way to preserve the timber and keep it looking fresh. Once the surface has been prepared, it’s a simple job to stain the timber with a brush and lamb’s wool applicator.
Building a deck is a great step in creating a fabulous outdoor space for your home or office.
