Here is the Heathmont deck after it was lowered 280mm by Sam Nott Carpentry & Timber Decking Now.
Giving an established deck a "haircut" is not a common request. This deck was originally the height you can see in the right.
The owners had a problem with that fact! They thought it was to high and intrusive on the LH elevation beside the house, so they called DECAID, Timber Decking Now's oldest established trading name (2003) and the "haircut".
Upon conclusion, Cassandra and James (the owners) stated in no uncertain terms how delighted they were with the result.
Sam deserves a lot of credit for delivering this result.
For those of you who want to create your very own Timber Deck and have hopped on the DIY train, below are a few important things to remember.
Since you feel you don't need the service of the best Timber Decking Builders in Melbourne, you'll need to master many crafts. A lot of detail goes into creating a Timber Deck, Verandah or Pergola. From planning to design to preparation to building and finishing — constructing an amazing, long lasting deck will take time and require a great deal of skill.
You can easily differentiate quality work from the inferior. It’s one thing to build a Deck. But it’s an entirely different issue to make one that is well finished, long lasting and is in keeping with it’s immediate surroundings.
You should give time — lots of it — to preparation. You must have a clear image of you want to build. You should find a way to “begin with the ending in mind” as Stephen Covey pointed out in his classic “Seven Habits of Highly Effective Persons". Subsequently putting the end in your mind, you then break the image down into smaller, more achievable lots.
Be on top of your expenses and budget. Make sure you precisely monitor what you spend and can reasonably predict your upcoming expenses. It is necessary so that you do not run out of funds in the middle of the project to keep within budget.
You need to possess the ability to schedule funding and work economically and efficiently. Once you have these skills, the design as well as the financing to get your Pergola, Verandah or Decking job done, you then need to schedule your planned works.
For many, while an initially attractive option, hiring a professional is often cheaper and usually provides for a more professional (and longer lasting) completed job.

No one living in Victoria will ever forget the tragedy of "Black Saturday". In the days leading up to this tragic event, the daily temperatures soured over 40 degrees. In was in these conditions that TIMBER DECKING NOW fulfilled a desperate clients need to "repair & alter" a rear ELEVATED DECK up in the Dandenong Ranges. It seems that the client was "desperate" on the grounds that he "could not get anyone to go to his home and quote the job!"
Upon arrival and inspection, the clients "desperation" was soon justified. Portions of the supporting bearers were rotted out! This fact was due to the damp conditions, lack of sunlight and heavy shade, plus the timber used in the original construction (OB hardwood) had no protective finishes or weatherproof capping installed.
The entire deck was to be "re skinned" and repaired, along with a small "bay" extension towards one end. The owner also specified a small gable roof over the extension to protect a sliding door access point from the living area.
Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now, chose to commence work on this project at "sunrise" (with the owners consent.) The heat of the day and the decks orientation to the East meant that the construction team were exposed the full impact of the Sun, when it climbed over the trees to the rear of the property. By 11.30 am the temperature has risen past 35C!
Work was ceased in the following hour on a day to day basis until the project was completed on the Friday, one day before the tragic events on Saturday!
