Wooden or Timber Decks are making a comeback like never before and there is good reason for it. Let’s face it – who among us wouldn’t like to relax on their deck, verandah or pergola, breathing in the cool evening air?
They’re a great invention and surprisingly easy to maintain. It can transform any dull, ordinary house into an adorable, inviting home. So why should you look into this today?
They are suitable for small and large homes alike. They are a wonderful addition to gardens, and landscaped backyards. They can be a great place to keep your flower pots, or the ideal spot for your summer BBQ.
Contrary to popular belief, well built Decking does not require a lot of cleaning and maintenance in order to remain fresh and new. With the proper precautions and a little bit of effort on your part, you can enjoy your outdoor lifestyle area for years to come without facing costly repairs.
Just remember to sweep and dust it regularly and keep your eyes open for minor damages, nails that have come loose etc.
Yet another great thing about it is that it can increase your home value. Just this small addition can ensure that when you decide to rent or sell your home, your group of potential buyers will be bigger.
In terms of durability, wood (timber) is strong and quite resistant and can withstand many bad weather conditions.
Timber is not overly sensitive to hot or cold temperatures, so changing seasons are not an issue. It can also deal with a significant amount of weight, so you won’t have to be shy about decorating it with plants and furniture.
If you like to walk around barefoot or in your socks, you’ll be pleased to discover that Timber Decks are much more comfortable to walk on than other surfaces, such as bricks or tiles. This makes them great places to sit down and just get a moment of rest.
Building the Decks themselves is not a complicated nor expensive process. However, it is one best left to professionals, if you wish to get the best results. We can also help design a deck that will optically eliminate a sloping, uneven back yard.
Last but not least, keep in mind that Wood/Timber is a renewable resource, making it the best eco-friendly option for Decking material!
