Building a deck over dirt or soil?

Choose your substructure.

Deck frame structures over soil or dirt.

Break the decades of traditional primitive deck construction, working with wet, heavy, warped, chemically soaked timber joists and bearers, and time intensive weather dependent installations.

What if:

- a decking subframe could be supplied as components, or kitset or pre manufactured in a factory and delivered to site just like aluminum joinery?

- a deck frame was light enough for 2-4 people to lift off a truck and position into place?

- the number of structural post and pile supports could be reduced by 30%?

- decking boards could to be installed using no screws or nails?

- A 25m2 deck installation including sub frame and decking board could be completed within 5 hours?

Introducing QWICKBUILD®, the world's most innovative deck frame system, the concept is simple.

For most decks, timber substructures are very basic, however on some decks they can get complex. OUTDURE does not provide advice on your timber substructure as it is best to be advised by your installer who understands your application better. However, we can supply some information for basic deck substructures in our how to install section.
