DIY Decking Tiles for the Not-so-Savvy Deck Builder
A few years ago, working on a wooden deck meant breaking our backs trying to build and put it together properly. It also meant breaking the bank because good timber’s not cheap and let’s face it; wooden decks need a lot of repairs and work after only a short period of time. Thankfully, in this day and age of modern technology, innovations have made DIY deck building easier than ever using a system called DIY Decking Tiles. With this system, you can simply ‘click’ your deck together! Sounds great right? Here are some tips before you get started:
1. Choose DIY decking tiles that are easy to fix
With traditional decking, you need a full toolbox to actually construct the deck – hammers, drills, screws, nails, power tools and also maybe some adhesives – this can set you back hundreds of dollars if you’re working on it yourself without the assistance of a professional decking contractor. Wood composite DIY decking tiles are very straightforward and can be installed in a matter of hours, without the need of a toolbox. They are designed so that they “snap” in place together like a jigsaw puzzle. They can be specifically cut to fit into any shaped deck, so size limitations aren’t an issue.
2. Make sure that your deck’s surface and supporting framework is structurally sound
For a DIY deck builder, nothing is more frustrating (and scary!) than having just finished installing the tiles only for the whole deck to suddenly collapse. So before you start snapping your DIY decking tiles into place, make sure that the surface you’re working on is stable and sturdy.
3. Go Green!
Our rainforests are losing too many trees too fast and with the drastic changes happening to our environment these days, it’s about time we take a firmer stand in caring for it. Wood composite DIY decking tiles are made from 100% recycled materials. By going composite, you’re helping our precious growth forests grow!
Undertaking a DIY decking project is undoubtedly a daunting task. By going with composite deck tiles, you can save time, money, stress and also contribute to the environment. It’s an easy choice!
