Bring on summer.

The only good thing about winter is the snow.

Have not been this year , but an hoping we can go with the children for a day trip.

We have just completed a decking in Mitcham for a lovely man and his wife.

Andy Clark has left his testimonial down the bottom of this page and it was such a pleasure doing business with him.

Thanks again from all of us here at Deckon Builders.

 

What we recommend.

CHOOSING TIMBER:  Decking Timber needs to rate highly on exterior durability, bridging strength and hardness. Decking can be purchased in several different profiles and sizes.
DURABILITY: Class 1 timbers are very durable: expected life heartwood above ground 50 years. Class 2 timbers are durable: expected life of heartwood above ground 30 years. Class 3 and 4 timbers have less durability and are not recommended for decking. Treated pine is very durable. Decking is classified as a grade 3 hazard, and correctly treated pine for this application will be treated to H3 according to the Australian Standard AS1604; expected life above ground 15-25 years. Life expectancy is dependent on the level of moisture content of less than 20% will last longer than indicated, whilst ‘wet’ decks with a typical moisture content of greater than 20% will have shortened service lives. The main enemy of timber decks is fungi (decay). Fungi will only attack and consume timber with a moisture content that is consistently high. Call Now for a free quote 0397203328

BRIDGING STRENGTH: Timbers vary in strength and stiffness and are classified into eight Strength Groups. The stronger the timber the wider the permitted centre–to centre joist spacing.

HARDNESS: This is a measure of resistance to indentation and, for decks, resistance to wear. The Janka scale measures hardness. For decks, harder is better.


PROFILES AND SIZES :Reeded or smooth. Install reeded side down so as to provide ventilation over joist and extended deck life. Sizes 70 x 19, 70 x 22, 70 x 35, 90 x 19, 90 x 22 and 90×35, 140 x 19 ,140×22,140×35.

Building permits and town planning.

Building permits and town planning -whats the difference?

 l have decided to inform my customers on the difference between building permits and town planning.

They will have a better idea when chatting to me in regards to these issues.

The main difference being legislation.

One department handles all the construction codes and information to cover the building codes of Australia (Building permits).

The other department handles issues in regards to the correct layouts of the town.

Amendments need to be taken into consideration to the setbacks and sittings of dwellings.

The information is then passed to the town planners.They can inform the public and the relevant authorities in regards to the changes being sort.

An application will then be used from the relevant town planning department..The project you are building is constructed in this area.

We can only determine if town planning will be required, once we have submitted all plans and information to the building surveyor.

Once we have been informed that town planning will be required , we then need to fill in the relevant application forms and submit all the information to the town planners.

Once they have received this information, then only can they make a decision based on the surrounding structures,and people in the community.

Plus all the relevant authorities need to be informed also.

This information process can take up to 3- 6 months to achieve an outcome.

Once a decision is made,then that will be passed onto the building surveyor for the issuing of a building permit.

If no decision is made , it may have to go to a VCAT ( https://www.vcat.vic.gov.au/ )hearing to be decided on.

I hope this information will help you in regards to this matter.

Decking project built in Ringwood North around an in-ground pool on a step block.

Decking in Ringwood North -Glass Rails.

This decking came together very well and is a complement to the house to say the least.It was completed with Merbu decking 140 mm wide.

All constructed on a treated pine sub floor with only 2 steel posts holding the 30 sqm decking up. Due to my skill as an engineering genius , we were able to complete this project with strength and ease.The owners were really happy with the project also.See the pics below for more details.Call now for a free Quote on 0397203328 for all your building requirements.

Bazoo Bar Croydon.

This project has just been completed and is ready for the canvas cover . The beams are all made from 10 mm laminated timber 360 mm x 80 mm curved beams and covered in a Quetek sealer to protect it from the weather conditions. The steel construction is all raw based look and is coated in a clear coat spray paint to protect it from rust. The project will be completed towards the end of the year.All beams were lifted into place with a 7 tonne Slew crane, with a 22 mtr boom on it. The whole project is bolted down to 1 mtr x 1 mtr x 1 mtr mass concrete blocks .
