After this seemingly never-ending winter, patio season is now just around the corner. If you have a current deck, or need to have one built, now is a great time to get started on drawing up plans for a new one. Many options are available for materials such as pressure treated wood, cedar, rolled vinyl, composite decking such as Trex and exotic woods including kayu.
If you would like to replace only the top of your decking, remember that the joists probably are in rough shape as well or sometimes are just spruce non-treated material. Wood only has a finite life, and you don’t want to put a new deck on a decaying frame. It might seem like you are saving money at the beginning, however, this will result in more money being spent in the long run. Ensure your deck has a great foundation and it will last for years to come.
Any deck over 600mm off the ground requires a permit from the city, even if you are rebuilding a previous deck to the same size. Any deck over 600mm also requires railings. At Envision Custom Renovations we will create all the drawings required from the city, and apply for your permit building permit and look after the inspections, all of which you will receive copies of.
