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.
