Tiled Veranda at Wallsend NSW

This veranda originally had very old Mosaic tiles where about 15% of the existing tiles were missing.

The style of the tile was very outdated and the porch was dangerous and became slippery when the tiles were wet.

According to the client, it was time for this outdated veranda to get a much needed face lift.

With new advanced tiling product we were able to tile over the old tiles with a new modern 300mm x 300mm non-slip tile.

This saved the client time and money which is important.

The now completed renovation to the front veranda has now transforms the entryway to this house in Wallsend.

Time now for the next renovation project.

Deck Repairs and Restorations at Wallsend Newcastle – Best Deck Renovation Ever!

Living with nature, sitting on the deck looking out over magnificent views, is a peaceful and calming feeling.

Everyday life for our latest happy customer.
“We love being on our deck in Wallsend with views of the Hunter Valley mountains north/west of Newcastle”

It didn’t start out that way. As an example, there was originally a very old deck with a non-safety compliant wooden handrail out back where the occupants were reluctant to spent much time.

This is where Rook Building was called upon to help make things right again. They have done many decks before. So they knew exactly what to do.

For starters they striped off the handrail and the decking board. After repairing the joist and making everything safe again, they began the installation of 90mm Merbau. This famous hardwood timber decking is installed with a screw-less system called Klevaclip. This system gives perfect airflow between the underside of the decking board and top of the joist.

Merbau is a naturally durable material and great for construction. For this reason, we went with a 90 x 90mm Merbau post and finished it of smartly with a modern stainless-steel cable for the handrail.

Looks great, and now complies with Australian standards.

The entrance to the deck a brand new Aluminium sliding door was installed with heat reduction glass. Finished off with a Merbau threshold to match the Merbau deck.

The end result, a nice winter deck overlooking the Hunter Valley Mountains.

Veranda Rescue and Deck Renovation at Cessnock Hunter Valley – Now a Cool Merbau Deck

This is a deck renovation we did in Cessnock in the Hunter Valley.

The old veranda had collapsed compressed flooring with tiles, which had become dangerous and ugly. The customer need it gone.

We set to work an replaced the joists with H3 treated pine and repair the bearers were required.

We then installed 90mm Merbau(hardwood) decking with a screwless system called klevaclip, which gives air-flow between underside of decking board and top of joist.

We also need to cut rotten post and install new galvanised stirrups.

It also looks great with minimum screws or nails

Suspended Veranda Renovation Elermore Vale – Newcastle Home Renovation

Home renovation projects can be fun. Other times it is an absolute necessity. That was certainly the case with this project.

We started with rotten suspended joist, under sidelining that was all falling off and compressed sheeting on top was busted. On top of that, the remaining construction was really unsafe as it had no handrails.

We demolished everything and started again.

  • Started with H2 LVL joists
  • New compressed flooring
  • Added treated pine handrail and slats

The results are amazing. It now a large usable veranda complying with Australian codes.
