Here’s The ‘Top Deck’ Solution to Make Decking Last
Building a deck is a significant investment in your home, so it’s no time to cut corners! Here’s how to build one that punches above its weight.
Timber has long been the standard when building a backyard deck. From stumps and bearers to joists and decking boards, timber—whether it’s treated pine or Blackbutt—will succumb to a few common problems in varying degrees. Looking for a floor decking solution immune to these problems? Perhaps the Centenary Decking Solution (CDS) is right for you. To get a quote [CLICK HERE]. By opting for a steel frame flooring solution such as this, you’ll avoid a range of problems typically encountered with timber support systems including:
1. WARPING, ROTTING & WEATHERING
Beautifully rustic and warm, a full timber deck is still a natural product prone to environmental dangers. The supporting structure of your deck might not scorch under the same UV damage as the decking boards, but all timber will eventually begin to break down, warp and rot. These little things add up! Without a constant maintenance schedule including the replacement of damaged elements, the overall strength of your deck will be compromised.
How’s your threshold when it comes to maintenance and DIY? There is no denying the beauty of timber, especially when it’s first installed. But as time goes by, your timber deck finish needs TLC and jobs like painting and staining to keep it looking new. Why not build the frame of your deck out of steel for less maintenance and extra peace of mind?
Termite damage to timber structures is a serious issue. Depending on where you live, The Building Council of Australia, state legislation and local councils all impose specific regulations for the home building industry. A quality Centenary steel Decking Solution underfoot provides immense structural integrity. While you’re strategising ways to protect what’s ‘on top’, you can be assured your deck’s key supporting structure is impenetrable to termites.
