What to Consider With Decking Process
Decking has different things to consider aside from what style to select and what wood type you would like. Before you can fully select a deck type, the first thing that you will need to determine is where you’re going to place the deck or how you would like it positioned. The right placement can provide a seamless transition from your property to the outdoors. How your deck is positioned may also help determine the size of your deck.
You will need enough room to hold activities and determining the sizing will ensure that the deck is fully maximised. Aside from the position of your deck, sizing can also be affected by the addition of a stairway. An addition of stairs may also result in the requirements for additional landings/footings etc. More than stairs as a possible additional feature for your deck to consider, you may also consider blinds for privacy or afternoon/morning sun protection.
Other than additional features, you will need to determine what roofing you would like for your deck. With different options available, you will need to select something to accommodate the deck and decide how watertight/weatherproof and insulated you would like it to be. You may also need to consider what deck flooring you would like but it would be best to go for something that is durable, non-slip and has an attractive surface to match your style.
Though the previous features and additions are notable components to consider, you can also consider additional features like solid walled areas to support benches or storage cupboards. Should your deck have stairs, you may need to consider balustrades which can come in different materials.
On the note of materials, when selecting what materials you would like deck to be made with, a timber wood decking falls under two categories, softwood and hardwood decking. Each category has a variety of wood types that fall under them but the more popular options include ironbark, spotted bark, treated pine, and merbau.
With these different consideration points in mind, you may need to consult a professional service to determine the best course of action for these different factors. If you want a professional service that is both reliable and delivers quality results, Geelong Carports is the service you need.
