Timber Deck
This Handy Hint relates to "How to build a Timber Fence".
For best results, all Decking should be No.1 grade. check with your Branch.
As soon as the decking arrives on the site it should be protected from the weather. Stack it at least 150mm off the ground ensuring it is level, straight and covered.
The ground under low level decks should be sprayed with weed killer, or covered with a plastic sheet and bark/wood chips or pebbles to prevent weed growth.
All fixings (bolts, nails, screws etc) should be hot dipped galvanized to prevent unsightly rust stains.
After 6 months, tighten all bolts and screws to compensate for timber shrinkage.
Make sure the stain/paint you choose is compatible with the timber treatment and galvanized fittings. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Sawn timber is best for stain finish and dressed or gauged timber is preferable for paint finishes. Alternatively you may decide to apply no finish and leave deck to age naturally.
When cutting or notching posts these faces must be coated with a preservative. Ask your Branch for the appropriate product.
Always ensure that uncut ends are embedded in the ground.  

 

 

Points to check
Take into account the space available, where trees and gardens are now or will be placed, prevailing wind direction, summer and winter sun.
How will the site influence the structure you wish to build? Decks require firm ground for post footings. Ground and rainwater should drain clear of the posts or any part of the structure - particularly if a low level deck is to be built. Excessive ground seepage could require changing the slope of the ground. Can the structure be braced against an existing wall?
Consider the design, the number and size of the posts, bearers and joists and whether the bracing or handrails are needed.
Contact your Local Authority for information on their requirements. Conforming to the by-laws will ensure your plans receive approval if required. See ‘Building Consent - What to Do’ Project Guide.
