When looking at the available options of installing a decked area in an outdoor space it is important to understand from the beginning the location, size and what is required from the end result.

Outdoor entertaining areas are one of the main reasons for installing a deck and there are other elements that can also be considered that include timber constructions and lighting.

There are hardwood, softwood and composite boards that are available in a range of sizes from 90mm to 145mm in width. Choosing the surface of the materials is an area that also has to be considered. Grooved boards are cost effective, functional and very popular. There are also smooth boards that offer a very professional finish and when correctly treated are not slippy.

For the boards to be installed a solid, level timber framework is required. This provides the area with both the required strength and stability that is essential.
