We had some rendering done on our house and they dropped concrete rendering all over our merbau decking. We need our whole decking (6m x 3.5m) sanded back, the screws replaced (cosmetic change only), a few boards replaced and some other changes (please see below for details).

Following some questions - We are extending the task as follows:

1. Sand down entire decking (6m wide x 3.5m long) with an electric sander to ensure complete removal of concrete render spots.

2. Replace some damaged boards with replacement second hand boards (we have plenty that can be used) - If these are not suitable, we will race to bunnings and provide the required boards.

3. Build in a step into the center of the decking (1.8m in width) but the step will be within the structure (i.e. not an external step). Wood required for this step is to be provided (i.e. treated structural pine - we have some around the property you could possibly use). We will provide the merbau timber required (we have lots of second hand boards that could be used).

4. Replace all current screws with stainless steel screws (star head) - Carpenter to supply as part of price.

5. Edge of decking to be cut back by 2-3cm (i.e. the current boards overhang) and add boards to finish the front of decking - best to see pictures for this one (hard to describe).

6. Once completed - deck to be oiled with natural oil (carpenter to supply all required materials for this).

Hoping to have this completed asap. Thanks

Hi Jessie im a floor sander with all my own commercial belt sanders and over 7 yrs experience. I can complete the task but not the steps. My quote is roughly $1100 for a full sand, supply decking oil or polish with.2 coats, replace boards, and cut edge. Fully insured and will guarantee my work or your money back no hassles. I am confident in performing the task to a professional standard.
I have. More than happy to help. Accept my offer on the other job. And we can decide on what is needed.

Hi Anthony, could you please update your quote - so that we can review and make a decision? Thanks for your help.
Send the bill to the rendering people when done.
Just sanding and screwed? No oiling? Do you know what gauge the screws are? Or a photo would help. Cheers
