To make sure you get the most out of your deck, consider the following points when selecting the deck that best suits your needs:
Decks from the Ground Up
Decks are very versatile. In fact, they are so versatile they are even installed over existing concrete or pavers and sloping ground.
This means an unused part of your backyard turns into a stylish feature of your home! It is a great way to add value to your property. In fact, it is almost like adding a new room.
At All Decked Out we understand that every property is unique. That’s why we always take into account any unique features when designing your new deck.
We know that the South Eastern suburbs, including Sandringham, have some unique features when compared to the rest of Melbourne. This includes more trees and more sloping blocks to work around. That’s why we are trusted as specialist deck builders in Sandringham.
Deck Railings & Balustrades
If you require railings or balustrades, we can easily incorporate them into the design of your new deck. They are usually required when the decking is above the ground and needed for safety. This is especially true if you have children or pets.
A large variety of styles for balustrades exist to complement decks. This includes steel wire, glass and timber. For the best finish it is recommended that you integrate them into the design of the deck when it is first constructed. By doing this you improve the structural integrity of your new deck.
However, if needed, balustrades can usually be added to your deck at a later stage.
Deck Stairs & Ramps
If your deck is on a slope or raised off the ground, you will need stairs or a ramp to access your garden.
However, there is no need to compromise on the style of your deck just because steps or a ramp is required.
This is due to the fact that there are many options available. This includes using just one step to lots because your deck has been built on a sloping piece of ground.
Decks & Obstructions
Often a deck is added to an existing home to enhance the outdoor living space. However sometimes there are obstacles that get in the way of a deck being built. When this happens, sometimes a unique solution is required for an unusual situation. This is especially true for the leafy suburb of Sandringham, where trees often get in the way of a new deck being built.
At All Decked Out, because we are specialist deck builders in Sandringham, we are experts at building around trees (or other obstacles). We turn a problem into a feature. Even better your tree provides shade during the hot summer months.
A Deck as Part of a Larger Outdoor Project
Often a deck is a part of a larger outdoor living or alfresco kitchen project. This is especially true in the Melbourne suburb of Sandringham where outdoor living is at it’s best in summer.
If you need landscaping we do that too! That’s why are known as the specialist deck builders in Sandringham.

A quality deck is functional, as well as visually attractive. In addition, it enhances both your outdoor living experience and the value of your home. The following is a selection of the type of timbers that are popular for decking:
Most decks are made from hardwood although modern composites and, treated pine are also used. Merbau is by far the timber of choice for decking in Sandringham, but there are many other choices available as well. Selecting the right timber for your new deck is important
For more information on specific timbers the following websites offer in depth information on various timbers and their best uses:

Style of Decking
Most decks are built using 90mm boards that are 19mm in height with 4mm spacing between boards.
However, you are not limited to this sizing. Decking boards come in different widths and are fastened to joists. Normally the boards join end on end and are staggered to prevent seams from becoming too distinct.
At All Decked Out we custom design your decking to create the style that is just right for your home.
If you are looking for a specific colour for your new decking, timber stains provide the solution.
When staining timber, remember that all stains darken the timber’s natural colour. This means selecting a timber with a naturally lighter colouring often produces the best results. This is especially true if you don’t want your timber to look too dark!
Stains are not a weather proofing solution. This means if you are also oiling your deck for weather protection purposes, it darkens the colour of the timber as well.
The only thing left is to start enjoying your new outdoor life!
New decks are left untreated for several weeks for it to adapt and weather. However, if the timber is left untreated for an extended time weather and regular usage will take its toll.
Oiling the timber seals the timber’s surface against the worst effects of continual usage and weather. For best results, oiling yearly is recommended.
All Decked Out offers an Oiling Service, where we revitalise your deck on an annual basis to ensure it is constantly looking at its best.
