Sherwood House - this is the rear deck I built at this property many years ago. Recently the owners decided to extend the deck right across the rear of the house.
New posts and bearers were fitted. Posts are 100 x 100 F17 Hardwood and the bearers are H3 treated LVL's
H3 treated LVL joists were installed
Joists painted all round with bitumen sealing compound
Kwila decking starting to go down. Note the rubber joist top protectors
Decking cut around posts
90 x 19 Kwila decking fixed with 65 mm twist shank gal nails
Decking down and onto the roof
Fabricated steel posts mounted to wall top plate supporting rear roof beam
Fitting and fixing off the rafters
All rafters birdsmouth notched
H3 treated LVL's used again for roof beams and rafters. Metal top hat roof battens and cross bracing
Fascia added, ready for the roof sheeting
140 x 42 kwila top rail of balustrade. Great for resting drinks on and a much better option than breadloaf or ladies waist handrail
All fixings concealed with matching timber plugs. This is a prime example of the quality of our workmanship.
Roofing complete,stormwater connected. Stainless steel cable balustrade. This is easily the best type of balustrade. Very cost effective, looks fantastic, doesn't block the breeze or view and is virtually maintenance free
Job completed. All aspects of this project were completed by Ringtail Carpentry, including design.
