Top Deck Installation related questions

What should I ask my deck contractor?

Some questions to ask your deck contractor include:

  1. What's your speciality?

  2. What's your warranty?

  3. How long have you been in business?

  4. Do you have a license and insurance?

  5. How do you handle it when something goes wrong?

You may want to indicate in your task post that you’d like to have a short interview with a potential Tasker before giving them the job. 

What should you not do when building a deck?

Many things could go wrong when building a deck! To avoid these, you should follow any local building codes and look out for these errors:

  • building inadequate deck post footers

  • using the wrong decking boards

  • not having enough (or too little) spacing between boards

  • laying a deck directly onto the soil

  • blocking access areas

  • not installing handrails

A local deck installer should know these guidelines and will make sure that your design follows them.

How do you prepare the ground under a deck?

To prepare the soil underneath your deck, start by putting a weed control fabric over the area. Then, put 30 to 40 mm of gravel on top. Or, you can place concrete slabs directly onto the soil, then start building your deck above them. These barriers will stop moisture from creeping into the wood of your deck. Moisture can seriously damage the wood of your deck, so it’s essential to keep it at bay.

Can I install a deck by myself?

As long as you have the right tools, materials, and know-how, you can certainly install a deck by yourself. Sure, it won’t be perfect, and it may take longer, but if a DIY deck is your goal, your willpower and elbow grease can sustain you. If, upon further research on how to install a deck, you’d rather leave it to an expert, simply use Airtasker to find deck installation experts near you.

How do I attach a deck to my house?

This depends on whether you're attaching a new deck or an existing one. The steps for each one are quite different, though you'll need a sledgehammer, circular saw, drill, impact wrench, hammer drill, and 1/2-inch masonry bit for both procedures. For a more secure and long-lasting attachment between the deck and your house, consult or contact a deck installer near you.

How long does it take to install a deck?

This depends on the manpower, your design, and the size of the deck. A 12x24 foot deck may take two people 1-3 weeks to finish. Usually, though, a deck installer service will give an estimate as to how long it will take to accomplish your design. Once your deck is done, you can also use Airtasker to find an after-builders cleaning service near you or get a local landscaping expert to beautify your backyard!

What do deck installation services include?

Deck installation services generally cover everything from preparing the ground underneath your deck to covering the decking edges. When you book a decking installation specialist via Airtasker, you may get an expert (or two) who will bring the necessary tools, help you pick the suitable materials, and help you get a new deck that becomes the envy of your neighbourhood!  

 

In general, here’s what you can expect to happen once your deck installers arrive:

 

Planning the layout

Deck installation starts with the Tasker checking your design and planning the layout. They may use spray paint, flags, string, or other markers to visualise the edges and midpoint of your deck. This step helps them plot where to place the eight support posts of the deck.

 

Covering the ground

Moisture is a deck’s greatest enemy, so the next step to building a deck that will last is to keep moisture away. A Tasker will do this by laying weed control fabric and gravel or placing concrete slabs on the area where you plan to put up your deck. Next, they’ll place a substructure made of steel, timber, or aluminium. Some installers may add extra moisture protection using materials like butyl tape. 

 

Putting up the support posts

Next, the deck installers use concrete to create the caissons or support posts for the deck. They’ll allow the concrete to cure for 48 hours before proceeding to the next step.

 

Cutting and laying out the boards

Next, the Tasker cuts the boards to fit each part of your design. Then, they’ll lay them out, starting with the perimeter and centre beam. The deck installers usually use steel bracket ties for support and an electric planer to keep the boards flush. 

 

After finishing this main frame of the deck, the main boards and decking material are installed. The deck installation specialists maintain ¼” gaps between the boards to allow the wood to expand and contract depending on the weather.

 

Finishing the deck

Finally, your Tasker bolts the wood planks to the caissons (support posts) using the anchor brackets. They’ll nail down the perimeter, check the entire deck, then let you take a look. And just like that, your deck is ready for you to furnish, decorate, and enjoy. 

 

Need help with other home maintenance tasks? You can use Airtasker to find a builder near you or hire a lawn care specialist for your garden. Now that you’ll be spending more time outdoors, it makes sense to beautify this part of your home.
