Installing a timber decking extension on your house can increase the value of your property, increase the amount of space you have for relaxing and entertaining, and generally add to you and your family’s quality of life. Folding doors that open on to the deck allow you to extend your internal living area providing indoor outdoor flow to your home, great for entertaining guests with those summer barbeques.
A successful hardwood deck merges with the architecture and depends on selecting the right timber to blend with your existing home. Timber Decks are ideal for sloping or uneven ground allowing you to increase your usable living space, and they provide a cheaper and better looking solution than concrete or brick. If you are looking for a more economical alternative then consider using treated pine decking. With the correct fasteners and regular maintenance it will give you a quality deck for many years. If you are looking for less maintenance then perhaps a deck built with Modwood decking may be the best solution for you. Modwood decking is a composite product that is Australian owned and made, making it the best choice in the composite decking range.
It is possible to even include a spa if the structure is reinforced to support the weight of the water. Large trees can provide shade and a natural feel, but if they are to be when incorporated into the design you must ensure they have plenty of room to grow. The best position for a timber deck depends on your needs it may be to maximise shade in summer and the sunlight in winter, or to provide extra living space year round to different parts of your home.
