The Basics of Deck Installation in Melbourne

If you are considering having a new deck installed, you’ve probably wondered about the general steps and procedures for building a timber or composite deck. Leisure Decking, professionals who handle deck installation in Melbourne, offer this introduction to some of the essentials of deck installation.



It all starts with the design. Creative visionaries draw up the plans that will become the finished product. Once they have completed the draughting, professionals must prep the area in which the deck will be built. Markers for where different foundations will be placed and secured are put down by the installers. They take measurements to make sure everything ends up in its proper spot. Next, they hammer in the deck posts that will keep everything sturdy. The posts are essential to supporting the deck so an experienced professional will take care to make sure all the footing is stable and level. Professionals place the framing on top of all of the support structures that were put into place earlier. If a deck is going to include stairs, professionals will install the stairs after the framing is set up. In many cases, the final pieces of the deck like railings and posts come last but are no less essential to bringing the whole project together into a polished final structure.

Building a deck is a highly specialised form of carpentry. It takes years of learning and building to master. For us, it’s all about using the best quality materials and laying the right foundations. That means getting to know you, and spending the time getting the sub-floor absolutely right.

Decking is beautiful. But it’s what’s underneath; the groundwork, that matters most to us. As they say – “The beautiful rests on the foundations of the necessary.” Without a solid foundation, you will never achieve a flawless, lasting result that truly functions for you.
