North Shore Deck Builder
Building a deck has many benefits over other patio surfaces:
It is easy to manipulate the heights of decks as they can be ground level building up to many metres above the ground. Be aware any deck over 1.5m on height will require a building consent and any drop of more than a metre below the deck or adjoining stairs will require a compliant balustrade.
Decks are great for hiding difficult areas where there may be unsightly structures and ground levels against the house. This is particularly beneficial for example when there are old stairs or patios which can be costly to remove otherwise as, within reason, building deck can be built over the top of these.
Decks can reduce the need for steps out from the house. Decks can be bought up to sill height where concrete and paved patios need to be a minimum below floor height of 150mm or 225 if unpaved, meaning level changes can be minimised.
Decks can bring the outdoor living space of inside flooring outside helping further create good indoor-outdoor flow and can add appeal to your overall landscaping. This is especially the case when they are fixed underneath so nail/screw lines can’t be seen and can add architectural appeal to your home
Decks are great for installing services such as lighting as cables can be easily run retrospectively where boards can be easily unscrewed and hole-sawed to install rebated lighting
