Timber decks are a popular and great looking feature of many Australian homes.
The trouble, however, with timber decks is rot. Rot starts when moisture gets
trapped between the timber joints in the deck itself and also underneath where
the boards join the joists.
Rather than simply replacing the damaged boards you might want to build yourself
a new longer lasting deck.
In Lets Do It, Kevin with the help of a Mitre 10 Mitreplan, takes us through the
steps of building your new deck from choosing the right kind of timber, sealing
the timber with Spa-N-Deck, wearing appropriate protective clothing for the job
right through to screwing the last boards in place.
Each deck is going to be different but a Mitreplan is a great place to start.
MITREPLANS for building a deck are available at all Mitre10 stores across
On the Mitre10 Home Page, hold your cursor over the “Do It Yourself” icon and
click onto “Build It”, then select the plan of your choice.
