  • – Low-Risk Solution – QwickBuild aluminium framing system is a safe system which is designed to ‘float’ on a waterproof membrane without penetrating it.
  • – Light-Weight & Durable – QwickBuild is made from moisture-proof materials such as aluminium and 304 stainless steel.
  • – Versatile – You can use QwickBuild aluminium framing system on multiple levels and around flowing structures making it extremely versatile. You can choose from decking tiles, turf, decking timber, or a selection of different materials to finish your deck.

Here are some tips to consider before you start thinking about your next decking project!

    1. 1. Don’t leave it too late to start your decking project. The last thing you want to do is spend the best months of summer building your deck. Think about what you want and get started on your deck early, so you don’t miss out on those summer nights entertaining.
    1. 2. Evaluate your skills and how much you can take on by yourself. If you’re quite handy with some tools and have a practical mind, then it could be worth buying the material and doing your own deck. If not, there is nothing wrong with hiring a professional to help make your dream deck a reality.
    1. 3. Check out all the legal requirements. Make sure that you check with your local council to ensure that you don’t need any special permits before you start building your deck. There’s nothing worse than finding out later, and lack of knowledge of the law is no excuse.
  1. 4. Think about what you want to achieve and your lifestyle. If it’s just a deck for you and your family, then you might not need a large area. If you enjoy entertaining and throwing lavish parties, then a larger decking area right from the start will be easier than trying to expand your deck later.
  1. 5. Don’t forget handrails and barriers! Check what the requirements are surrounding handrails and be sure to incorporate them into your deck. This is especially important when thinking about decks around water and heights.
