Luxury Townhouses require special consideration when it comes adding a deck.
This up market home (above) in Melbourne's Eastern suburb of Heathmont, enjoys wonderful vistas of the adjoining golf course. The home's owners were of Scottish origin and retired. They were looking forward to morning tea on their new deck, whilst observing the local birdlife on the golf course.
Timber Decking Now received a request to quote and offer ideas for the construction of the proposed deck. It did not take us long to demonstrate our ability through photos, references and practical knowledge.
After receiving an additional two quotes, the retired owners awarded the project to Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now.
In doing so they stated "it's not all about price, it's as much about feeling good with the people you are dealing with!"
Leafy Heathmont in MELBOURNE was the location Melbourne Deck Builders, TIMBER DECKING NOW was called in 2007 to construct this wrap around deck and verandah.
There was no existing structure to demolish or alter, this was a straightforward addition in an overgrown garden. The owner cleared away the vegetation and trimmed the tree branches back to give the team a clear work site to work in.
As with many of these older weatherboard homes, compromises had to be made with floor levels being a little out of "flat and true!"
However, these minute compromises did not affect the integrity nor the ascetics of the finished product.
There was once an old deck in Blackburn North that had seen much better days. It was tired and the timbers were rotting away.
The owners decided to get a few quotes and do something about replacing it.
Timber Decking Now won the project and began by demolishing the old deck, which was half the size of the replacement.
The owners also added a Verandah into the mix, thereby getting year round use and enjoyment from their investment.
Merbau decking, stainless steel wire inserts on the handrails, new steps, a Laserlite roof and matching colourbond gutters and caps completed the scene. All that was left to do was the paint job and the surrounding garden.
This established home in BORONIA was a very comfortable residence... as long as you stayed indoors!
The outdoor area offered no protection from the elements whatsoever. You either got soaked in the rain or burnt under the Summer Sun. Clearly, something needed to be done!
After getting several quotes and accessing what was on offer, the owners decided to proceed with Melbourne Deck Builders, TIMBER DECKING NOW. Our extensive experience and a host of photos and ideas from previous projects in part, won the day!
The clients settled on a gabled roofline to maximise the headroom, which would have diminished had a flat roof being installed. The depth of the construction necessitated the gable roof to maintain a constant clearance throughout. They also wished to keep the gables open at both ends by means of a few vertical inserts only.
Timber Decking Now suggested a couple of polycarbonate (Laserlite) sheets over the windows to maintain natural light entering the home. This feature was taken up also.
The build was quick, tidy and efficient. The clients later stated that they accepted the Timber Decking Now quote "due to the clear explanations to all our questions and concerns, plus the obvious experience, and lastly... we felt relaxed and we could trust you guys".
