Your deck: before and after Outside Concepts

Look at the difference an Outside Concepts deck can make to your home! No more rotten timbers, cramped spaces and rain soaked BBQs! Instead say ‘hello’ to a well-designed and beautifully built covered deck to extend your living into the outdoors.

That’s exactly what the owners of this property did and look at the difference it made to their house!

This typical bungalow style house was built in the 60s and being brick has stood the test of time. However the small rear deck has not. Outdoor timber structures typically have a lifespan of about 20-30 years depending on location and weather and this deck was in a state of significant disrepair.

So the home owners called in Outside Concepts for professional help with redesigning and building their new outdoor living area. The deck was demolished, replaced and upgraded with all necessary approvals and using quality materials.

The size of the deck was enlarged and shaped to fit snugly and naturally across the rear of the house. The homeowners chose a mixed hardwood deck to give longevity and durability while offering affordability for those on tighter budgets.

To protect the new deck and to provide much needed shade, a timber-framed gable roof was installed using Colorbond corrugated steel roofing on one side and polycarbonate panels on the other. The polycarbonate light panels maximises light falling into the interior space of the home while still providing significant shade and weather protection. Gable end panels were latticed using Hardiscreen. With the added height gained with the ridged roof the resultant deck space is light, airy open and modern.

The deck now provides a space for children to play, laundry to dry and friends to be entertained. So if your house is still using a ‘before’ deck, call us now and get ready for a new life ‘after’ Outside Concepts deck replacement!
