Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now, received a call from a lovely retired couple in KNOXFIELD.
They were looking to build a good sized deck with a flat roof to gain protection from the elements. In addition, they wanted to instal a new sliding door in place of a window, plus a new matching replacement sliding door for an old raw Aluminium one.
Natural light was a high priority, therefore the client chose 'Laserlite 3000' for the roofing. Not only would they be protected from the rain and UV, but also 'Laserlite 3000's' ability to reflect the Sun's infra red rays to reduce the heat under the roof.
The chosen decking was 140mm Merbau, with an all H3/H4 subfloor.
The series of photos (below) shows the construction taking place over a two week period. From start to finish our clients were typically gracious and looked after the team with tea, biscuits and cool drinks on a daily basis.
In return, the team went the extra mile in making sure every detail was attended to the clients complete satisfaction.

On a mild October morning back in 2005 Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now, began the construction of this Merbau deck in Rowville.
The brief was straight forward and basic. The owners wanted a low profile deck to place their outdoor furniture and a large umbrella on, so as to enjoy a little alfresco dining and drinks with family and friends. Secondly they wanted to keep the vista "open" and not feel confined by traditional handrails.
After removing a totally dis functional landing, the deck was mapped out on the lawn using a line marker spray can and tape measure. Then, a stump hole pattern was marked out and the holes dug into the clay based conditions.
The subfloor did not have a great deal or clearance underneath, therefore, the entire subfloor was constructed with H3 & H4 RH Treated Pine. Secondly, the plinth rails were generously gapped to allow a good cross flow of air.
The handrail posts form part of the subfloor structure by passing through into a mass concrete pad, which offers excellent strength and rigidity.
Finally, SUS 316 Marine Grade wire was custom fabricated to size and installed as specified.
