Wood decks are marvelously flexible structures that can be designed and built to suit you, your family and the property you live on. They make great additions to homes of all ages and are superb for businesses like pubs, clubs, hotels and restaurants that want to create an attractive outdoor room for their customers to enjoy.
Market research shows that the popularity of decking and associated landscape structures is growing in leaps and bounds. Wood decks are now an established part of garden design and add tremendous re-sale value. Anyone who is thinking about building a deck should ensure that the materials used are fit for this purpose and that the builder knows what they are doing as properly built decks will provide years of pleasure. It is absolutely crucial, particularly with a raised deck, that the structure is safe and sound after completion; not new information, but it does merit a timely reminder, and following your local building code should ensure a lifespan of at least 25+ years.
