Building a deck can be great for many different reasons: to add value to your home, an extra space to entertain guests, or just a place for you to have that morning cuppa. A big project like building decks requires careful consideration, planning, and professional execution.

We have been in the business of building decks for over 25 years as a registered Master Builder member, and as such, we are uniquely qualified to provide you with a few tips to keep in mind before and while building your deck.

What’s Your Budget?

First, consider your budget. Decks can range from simple and inexpensive to complex and costly, so it’s important to determine how much you’re willing to spend and make sure that your plans align with your budget. Budgets will help you make informed decisions about the materials and design of your deck.

This is something that we will always discuss with our clients in order to best advise them based on their budget.

What’s The Purpose?

Secondly, think about the purpose of your deck. Are you looking to entertain guests, create a relaxing space for your family, or just add an aesthetic feature to your home? Knowing these answers will help you decide on the size and layout of your deck, as well as the type of materials you’ll need.

A professional deck builder should have good communication with their client to find out their needs and discuss the best option in terms of size.

Do You Have Building Consent?

Thirdly, make sure you have the right building consent. Building a deck requires a building consent in New Zealand, so make sure you apply for one and that you have all the necessary permits before starting construction. This will help ensure that your deck is safe and complies with building codes and regulations.

We offer this service to all our clients, as we know the process best.

Where’s The Location

Next, consider the location of your deck. Think about the sun and shade patterns, the view, and the privacy aspect of your deck. It’s important to choose a location that maximises these aspects to make the most of your deck.This will help your deck builder choose the right type of wood or composite decking for your space.
