Decking professionals have the ability to create inviting, comfortable and cosy outdoor living and entertaining areas. Hiring the right professional will ensure correct installation and maintenance for a long-lasting outdoor solution. The cost of your decking professional will depend on the material you decide to use, how large the deck is and whether it needs building, repairing or replacing all together
The size of the deck you want to have installed is a key factor in determining the overall cost of the quote. The size of the deck will also determine whether or not you need to seek council approval before you build. Waiting for approval can delay a project.
As the allowances for deck size vary from council to council you will need to check with your local council as to whether the size you are looking to have installed requires approval or not.
The type of timber you choose will also have a significant impact on the cost of your deck. It is worthwhile considering your options here as cheaper options such as pine may be attractive in the immediate, but may require extra maintenance in the future as opposed to Merbau (which is a lot harder wearing and just as sustainable).
While the decking material and size of the project will affect the price the most, accessories and features will also affect the total price. Accessories include any nuts, bolts and posts involved in building the deck, as well as the timber for bearers and joists, and the inclusion of these materials will drive the price up - but it shouldn’t be a substantial proportion of the cost of the project.
The absence or addition of features can affect the price quoted directly, such as if you require stairs, a balustrade, any roofing or if the deck is elevated. If you decide to elevate your deck, this will drive the price in an upwards direction as it is more labour intensive for the professional and has to adhere to strict specifications.
Reading customer reviews on the business's Oneflare profile are effective in indicating if the business possesses professionalism, is on-time and is capable of completing a quality decking job
Depending on where you live you will need to make sure that your chosen deck builder is properly licenced. It varies state to state as to whether the business you hire needs to be classed as either a carpenter or a builder. If in doubt, check with your local council on any regulations you will need to adhere to
