Back in 2007 Timber Decking Now received a call from a young professional couple living in leafy BLACKBURN, an outer Eastern Suburb of MELBOURNE.
The initial call was to construct a relatively small MERBAU timber deck to replace a broken concrete pad outside a recently renovated living room.
Having won and completed the Merbau deck, the delighted owner then asked Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now to construct the lovely outdoor gazebo style structure shown in the photos. The gazebo was to compliment the brand new in ground pool and surrounds, plus a permanent outdoor BBQ and entertainment zone.
The structure features a hip roof, "Colourbond" roofing and fully lined with pine tongue & groove lining boards. The installation of the lining boards was the most time consuming factor in this project. Two full days were spent getting every aspect geometrically perfect. The photos show the gazebo at virtual completion except for the exterior lining of the Merbau privacy screen and the final finish on the complicated ceiling.
Needless to say, the owners we're ecstatic with the result, which far exceeded their expectations.
Their choice of colours and style flowed seamlessly from boundary to boundary.
From our point of view, the gazebo perfectly complimented the resort style environment the owners had created in what was previously a very uninspiring rear garden area.
Many businesses start in obscure and unusual ways. DECAID (Decaid) is no exception.
Back in the early 1980's DECAID as a business name was non existent. Indeed, at that time there were NO SPECIALIST deck or verandah builders. There were carpenters who performed all manner of domestic works, along with builders who built entire homes.
DECAID started life as "DISCOROCK" in 1980. It was a small business building "band stages" along with "floor rises, dry bar hand rails and permanent AV consoles as a means to secure "gigs" in infant hotel discos.
From that base grew INTERNATIONAL NIGHTCLUB SERVICES an expanded business offering complete AV supply and instal, dance floors, floor rises, stage construction, consoles and dry bars. One noted project by International Nightclub Services was the complete AV design, supply and fit out of JOOCE NIGHTCLUB Ringwood during 1992. Over the next ten years, ongoing renovations and expansions of the JOOCE nightclub, along with other metropolitan and country venues ensured continuing building activity within I.N.S.
In 2003 DECAID was formed with the express aim of adapting the nightclub fit out knowledge into the MELBOURNE domestic market. Deck construction is in most ways very similar to a "performing stage" and "floor rises" Therefore, the shift to domestic deck building was a natural step in the evolution towards TIMBER DECKING NOW.
TIMBER DECKING NOW by it's very name indicates the marketing direction and aims of the business owners. In today's highly competitive market, an imaginative and progressive strategy is called for. The TIMBER DECKING NOW group has a very contemporary "pack leading" mentality which combines the latest marketing strategies and innovative ideas, whilst also drawing upon THIRTY FOUR YEARS of evolution and old fashioned service through DECAID.
With hundreds of past projects to draw upon, Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now, have a long rich heritage through the evolution of DECAID. The future of the Timber Decking Now Group is an exciting one. The inclusion of the DECAID business name evolving from obscure, but related beginnings in 1980 and still in the hands of the original owner, lends an air of solid long term reliability.
