There are a variety of deck materials as versatile as the style and shape but here are four common choices:
1. Timber (hardwood or softwood)
2. Structure Steel/Aluminium
(beams, joists and handrails)
3. Glass (balustrading/handrails)
4. Deck Tiles
Other features you may consider adding
are personal details such as a design cut into the balustrade, or special lighting that has multi-colour options, an outdoor sink/built in barbecue or entire kitchen space!
Decks can be built in or left as
an open design. Windows can be fitted, blinds custom made, fans and lighting added to create a more personal, unique space.
Long-term maintenance and care for your deck surface should be carefully considered before deciding on a building material and finish. For example, some finishes such as oil or varnish will require re-application on a 6-12 month basis.
