How to Build a Deck

1. Bring Together the Supply that you need:-

First of all, bring together the supply that you will need for this purpose.  This includes the wooden pieces of timber and some iron fixings to make joints fixed as well as some iron nails, nuts and bolts that will fix up the base with the wooden timber. Simply gather all this supply in the front of your house and begin building the deck.

2. Start Making the Base:-

We will start making the base first of all, this will need you to fix a few support first of all in the ground and then cover them up with mud. The upper part of these timber parts should be places with wooden timber plates to nail them up with a hammer and then go for the further building process.

3. Fix the Flooring Finish:-

Now when the wooden plates of timber have been fixed on the support timber, you may choose to go for fixing up the flooring finish up the base so as to give it a floor like feel. The grout needs to be filled in between so as to not let any space be left in between and then you need to go for the polishing approach to make it look presentable.

4. Fix the Grills:-

Rest all what is left just involves you to fix up the iron or wooden grills with the base that you have made, this should be done in such a way that a sort of boundary gets created with the base and these grills should be of equal length. In case, wooden grill is not available, you may also choose to go for the iron bar grills as well.

5. Have Some Sitting Arrangement, Stairs Arrangement Made:-

Now when the deck has been constructed, you need just to make some sitting arrangement with it. Simply fix some sofas or chairs on it along with a table and then go for the polishing approach over the floor to make it shine like anything regularly.

6. Paint the Deck:-

In case you have gone for a cement based approach for flooring instead of the wooden timber, you may choose to paint it up. Rests paint the wooden deck to prevent the wood from spoiling and paint the iron bars to prevent corrosion of them. The anti-termites chemicals can also be added along with the paint to save the wood from meeting the termite infestation.
