Sketch out the shape of your deck and its position in relation to your house, taking into account doors, and stairs. Determine what size deck you want. Your final measurements must include any necessary setbacks from boundaries, fences and neighbouring properties.
Know where any drainage, sewer, gas, water and phone lines are. You should enquire here.
Once you know the size of your deck, Britedeck’s experienced staff can work out the quantity of boards you will need for the job. Every order comes with the required amount of starter clips, decking clips, screws, anti-creep clips and a driver bit to fit your screws. We will need to know whether your subframe is timber or metal.
The subframe must be adequate to support the load of the deck. We recommend a height of 30cm. The joist span will vary with your choice of Britedeck product. All the information is here.
Britedeck can also be installed over concrete, using batterns which we supply. Check page 18 of the installation guide.
