Key steps for building the perfect deck


Timber decks are a valuable asset for any home.

Kiwis love being in the great outdoors, and decks are the ultimate way to entertain guests, lounge the afternoon away with a great book, or host a family barbecue, whilst making the most of your beautiful vista and outdoor environment.

External timber decks and balconies provide an attractive outdoor flow and can also increase the resale value of your home.

If you’re considering hiring a professional to build your deck, here are the key steps:

  • Contact a qualified and reputable builder, to discuss your ideas with you, confirm whether a building consent is required and create an action plan.
  • If a building consent is required, plans will then need to be drawn up and submitted to the council. At Jason Gardiner Builders we work with experienced draughtsmen and architects who can take care of this for you, whilst we manage the process from start to finish.
  • If no consent is required a price/quote can be obtained for you to consider.
