Adding a Deck to your Home
There are great options for you to improve your living space without having to buy a new house. The most popular options are adding a deck, a pergola, verandah or carport.
A deck is great for relaxation and entertainment. Adding an outdoor deck to your home is an excellent way to increase your living area and it will add significant value to your house. A quality-built deck will enhance the beauty of your home and will add more value to your home than it costs. You will want to ensure that you end up with a quality product that is the perfect solution for alfresco dining, entertaining friends and is a relaxing space to soak up the beauty of your back yard for years to come.
If you’re looking for inspiration there are plenty of sources of information and examples available online at Outside Concepts. We have the knowledge and experience to design and build a solution to suit your needs and budget, with a 10 year structural guarantee.
Decking is generally a wooden platform built above the ground and connected to the main building. It is enclosed by a balustrade or railing for safety. Access may be from the house through doors and from the ground via a stairway. Built-up decks can be constructed over steep areas or rough ground that is otherwise unusable.
Make sure you have privacy when using the deck.
Don’t forget to consider the right location to build your deck. The back of the house may not always be the best place to build your deck. The ideal is to choose a spot where the deck will receive both shade and sun at different times of the day.
Work within your budget
Outside Concepts can plan and build a decking structure that suits your lifestyle and budget. The cost of building your deck can often be recouped in the future by the increasing value of your home.
Choice of styles
Outside Concepts have many styles you can adopt for your outdoor decking and we will help ensure that the style you choose matches your home and lifestyle and integrates well with existing structures.
Choice of materials
There are various materials you can consider using for building your outdoor decking and Outside Concepts will advise, plan and build your deck using the best materials suited for your style of home and your everyday life. You can use softwoods, hardwoods, timber composites, aluminium or steel.
Finishing touches and deck maintenance
For a distinctive look and extra character external balustrades can really make a difference to your deck. Outside Concepts offer options ranging from modern stainless steel wire balustrades, glass, or a classic decorative panel, providing products to suit all tastes.
On site Quoting
Outside Concepts has developed a computer program that provides customers with detailed specifications, quotes and council applications, all able to be done onsite using a laptop computer.
This system enables us to provide you with a fixed price quote on the spot, detailing the exact measurements and materials required to complete the project, big or small. Once you accept the quote Outside Concepts will prepare a detailed plan for your approval then submit the plan to Council on your behalf.
Our goal is to provide the highest standard of personalized service from planning through to completion of your deck.
