Decking as indoor storage


"Eddvinas did an expert and amazing job of clearing, cleaning and oiling the decking, so much so that it looks much better that it did when it was first laid. The terrace went to unusable to beautiful is just days. Edd came over three days working two to three hours on each day, first to clear and pressure wash the terrace, the next to paint the first coat and the last day to finish with the second coat, allowing good drying time in between coats. Edd works thoroughly and contientiously, I have no hesitation in recommending him and am looking forward to him coming back for future jobs. "

Top Decking related questions

Do I need a permit for decking?

You should check local council regulations to find out if you need a permit for decking and if there are restrictions on the materials and size of the deck. For example, in New South Wales a permit is only needed if decking is larger than 25 square metres, but a permit is needed in Victoria if you're installing or replacing any size of deck.

Do decking contractors need to be licensed?

This depends on where you live and the cost of the decking. In New South Wales, decking over $1000 needs to be installed by a licensed builder, whereas in Victoria a registered building practitioner is required for jobs over $5000. In some states and territories, decking can be installed by a licensed carpenter.

What's the best material to use for decking?

There are pros and cons to all decking materials, depending on the look and feel you want and practical or safety considerations. Composite decking is a popular alternative to wood for pool areas, as it's easier to maintain, but some people prefer natural timber.

What decking is suitable for bushfire areas?

There are alternatives to wooden and composite decking if you live in an area at risk of fires. Fire-resistant options include aluminium, cement fibre and concrete decking. These can be designed to resemble traditional wooden decking if preferred.

How long does it take to install decking?

The time the project takes depends on its size and complexity, from a few days for a small project up to several weeks. As well as laying the decking boards, it may also include digging stump holes and installing a subfloor or concrete to support the deck.

How much does decking cost?

Decking cost varies according to the type of decking you choose, the size of the installation and other factors. Your contractor will give you an estimated quote that you can compare with other companies. The average cost of decking on Airtasker is between $150 – $500.

What do decking experts do?

Decking is installed by carpenters or other tradies who know how to lay decking boards evenly and to fix them in place to make sure they stand the test of time. They'll help you achieve the design you want in your outdoor area, while also making sure your decking is safe if it's installed around poolsides.

Decking installers may specialise in a single type of decking or all materials. These include:

Hardwood timber decking

If you love the natural look of timber, nothing beats hardwood decking. Decks made from Australian hardwoods such as Jarrah, Merbau and Spotted Gum can last for many years, but they require regular maintenance to avoid weathering. The downside is that these decks can take longer to install.

Pressure-treated pine decking

Not as strong or long-lasting as hardwood, treated pine is still a popular choice for Aussie gardens that's easier and cheaper to install. If you don't like the light pine look, it can be stained any colour you want. Pressure-treated pine is protected against rot, fungi and termites, but your deck will still need to be oiled once a year.

Composite decking

Composite decks combine wood fibres with recycled plastic to offer the natural look of timber decks without the maintenance. This strong decking is resistant to moisture and fading, doesn't overheat and is slip-resistant, making it ideal for poolsides. The catch is that it generally costs more than other types of decking.

Fibre cement decking

If you live in an area at risk of bushfires, timber or composite decking may be restricted. Concrete decking made from fibre cement is an alternative that can be designed with any appearance you want in your backyard. Like composite decking, it's low maintenance and resistant to heat, moisture and pests.

Clean decking on rooftop terrace


Poplar, Greater London

Hello, I need someone who can clean the decking on a rooftop terrace and the glass balustrade, preferably a gardener who has done this before. You MUST have your own tools for doing this. We want the decking to be cleaned using special decking brush set and water (there is green moss on some parts of the terrace floor), we don't want to jet wash them. Terrace is approximately 90 square meters.

I need decking


Norbiton, Greater London

17th Mar 2019

- Repair couple of loose steps - Replace 2 boards (both fairly small so should be able to just need 1 board) - Clean, remove algae - Apply 2/3 coats of decking stain - 24 sq m in total - I will supply stain and decking cleaner and clear the area beforehand. I am going to go for Screwfix No Nonsense stain but open to suggestions - Doesn’t all have to be completed the same day as clearly weather is important! - Relatively flexible on timescale other than needs to be done by or on 5 April. - I will also put up patio cleaning job so look out for that

Decking and patio is looking great now! Steps repaired as well

Sand and oil back deck


Sydenham, Greater London

25th Jun 2019

We hired a local recommended company to pressure wash our two decks. Unfortunately, they held the pressure washer too close to the back deck causing the wood to lift. The entire deck needs sanded before we put a coat of oil seal on it to water-protect it. This is probably a few hours work if you have an electric sander. We have the oil (£40) and a roller / pan. The back deck size which needs sanded and oiled is 12.5 x 15.5 ft. I have included an image of how it looks following the pressure wash. I have also included a picture of the two decks from the autumn to show the size. Ideally you would also oil the front deck which is 23 ft by 15 ft.

Really friendly guy. Good communication and did a great job sanding and sealing our back deck. Will use again

Replace 7 wood deck steps and a broken door


Childs Hill, Greater London

22nd Jun 2019

Need someone with a bunch of wood boards who can replace the step and fashion a door (the current door is just 4 boards nailed together)

Garden Decking repair and cleaning


Ealing, Greater London

6th Jun 2019

I’ve had to lift a portion of my decking to get access to a manhole. I’m looking for someone to come and screw back the lifted pieces and cut a square around the manhole so that I can access it again in the future. I’d also like to powerhose the whole thing. 1 piece of decking has split, so this will probably also need replacing.

Install shelves in shed (use decking) and hooks


Chiswick, Greater London

I need better storage in my shed to include shelves and hooks etc. Think the shelves might be made from decking (like the shed) but happy to take advice.

Great tradesman. Turned up when he said he would, did a cracking job, and really wanted to make sure I was happy with everything (I was). Five stars.
