Looking for Brisbane’s Best Deck Builder…

To make sure that you select an experienced, qualified and capable deck builder for your new deck there are a number of questions that you should ask.

The types of question you should ask in your quest to find the best deck builder in Brisbane include:

Are you licensed to build decks in Brisbane?
How long have you been in business building decks?
What insurance cover do you have?
What sort of warranty do you provide?
Could I please have a couple of phone numbers from previous clients of yours as a reference?
Do you handle all the plans and approvals that are required by Brisbane City Council?
How soon can you start work building my deck?
How long do you anticipate it will take you to complete the project?
Can you please provide me with a written estimate including a breakdown of costs of labour and costs of materials?
Finally, do you as part of the job clean up and take away all debris from my home once the job is done?

If the deck builder is unable to give you any contact numbers for references then it would be a good idea to continue on with your search for Brisbane’s best deck builder.

All We Do Is Decks

We are deck specialists.  By specialising in one particular area (deck and patio building) we are far more knowledgeable and experienced than an ‘all round’ builder.  As specialists we can also provide you with the best advice regarding your new deck or patio.  Also due to our expertise we are able to construct your deck more efficiently, thus reducing the number of labour hours that you need to pay for.

We welcome your call (phone ) and would love to come out to your Brisbane home to inspect the site for your planned timber patio or deck.  Having inspected the site and after an in-depth conversation with you (about what you are hoping to obtain from the extra outdoor living area), we will provide you with a quotation to undertake the work.
