Getting The Job Done
Part of building your dream deck is the prep work – from scoping your backyard to planning where the furniture goes to gathering the right tools. Luckily, Trex® works as easily as timber, with practically all the same tools you use for timber.
When heading to the shop for supplies, it’s best to be prepared with a plan. Have answers prepared for these questions:
Circular saw blade
Drills and bits
Hoe and hose
Post hole digger
Shims or spacers
Stakes & batterboards
- Check with your local council for what permits are necessary and any building code requirements
2. Homeowners Association
- Understand any rules regarding deck size, colour, product type or design
3. What's Underground
- Check with local utilities companies for the location of any underground cables or wires (a builder often helps with this).
