This established home in BORONIA was a very comfortable residence... as long as you stayed indoors!
The outdoor area offered no protection from the elements whatsoever. You either got soaked in the rain or burnt under the Summer Sun. Clearly, something needed to be done!
After getting several quotes and accessing what was on offer, the owners decided to proceed with Melbourne Deck Builders, TIMBER DECKING NOW. Our extensive experience and a host of photos and ideas from previous projects in part, won the day!
The clients settled on a gabled roofline to maximise the headroom, which would have diminished had a flat roof being installed. The depth of the construction necessitated the gable roof to maintain a constant clearance throughout. They also wished to keep the gables open at both ends by means of a few vertical inserts only.
Timber Decking Now suggested a couple of polycarbonate (Laserlite) sheets over the windows to maintain natural light entering the home. This feature was taken up also.
The build was quick, tidy and efficient. The clients later stated that they accepted the Timber Decking Now quote "due to the clear explanations to all our questions and concerns, plus the obvious experience, and lastly... we felt relaxed and we could trust you guys".
SWINGING THE CAT......... NOT!
This relatively new unit in Burwood was a great home, but lacked entertaining space.
A small existing open deck was fine for a cuppa in the morning sun, but offered no protection from the elements, nor was it large enough for a little Alfresco dining.
The new owners wanted firstly to enlarge the deck and have it extended thereby allowing it to wrap around the corner of house.
A new set of steps was specified to gain access from an existing paved courtyard. In addition a new right angled gabled roof was requested to protect the entire structure.
Balustraded handrails completed the clients request.
After demolishing the existing undersized structure, Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now proceeded with the new construction and completed the works in seven working days, with the owner following us up with a paint brush on a daily basis.
