Decking installation is no different in building a house, that is, the only difference is that decks cover only a small area of your land and it is not something as complex as building a home. Shed, for example, are like small houses with four corners, floors, ceilings, and roofs that sometimes can be DIYed. But for a deck, it is a different story.

Deck surfaces have different types. Consumers often think that when they install a deck, the first thing that will wear out is the surface, as it is made of wood. This is why builders have offered ways to protect the wood surface or help consumers choose another surface type that will emulate wood and still enjoy their outdoor decking.

When installing a deck, you have in mind its capacity to hold a weight. Add the dead load that is inclusive in the build and other things such as plants and plant boxes or anything that have no life. Next is foot traffic. How many do you think are going to use your deck every day? Are the joists strong enough to hold the whole deck with all the weight on it?

Keep in mind that after installing the joists, lumber decks or wood panels shouldn’t have spaces in between when laid altogether. Remember that if you live in an environment with high humidity, you have to check your deck surface material if it is prone to shrink, warp, split, or crack. Untreated wood is vulnerable to all sorts of attacks and would easily decay if not not maintained.

Panels or boards are usually attached to the joists with a nail or screw. With modern construction techniques, even DIYs have different and novel fastening procedures that hide nail heads and screws. Ask your professional deck builder for the best fastener you can use for your deck, or if you have availed a decking project, let your service builder employ the most effective technique so your deck is durable and long-lasting.

Some end-boards of a deck have predrilled holes to hide the fasteners and to prevent the wood from having slits. However, even if the laying of decks is intact, they should be designed to allow water to drain but to prevent debris from falling into these narrow openings. Joists filled with debris are hard to clean. Only the surface can be cleaned but the very foundation will crumble in time.

Styles of decking come in different forms. If you want to see different decking designs, you may want first to select on the surface type; composite, wood/lumber treated, vinyl, redwood and cedar, aluminium/metal.

Your decking choice is crucial to your life’s decision, as it will cost you to maintain it, clean it, adorn it, and enjoy it with your loved ones for many years day in and day out.
