Why you need a deck

A deck is more than just a decorative feature. It can be many things, including:

  • The ideal place to entertain guests with a relaxing BBQ
  • A great general-purpose area for hobbies and other activities
  • A fantastic play area for kids
  • An extension to your home’s living area.

But as great as a deck can be, conditions in the outdoors aren’t always ideal. We all know how hot the sun can get in Southeast Queensland and Northern New South Wales! And during the winter months, cold spells can make your deck feel a lot less inviting.

This is exactly why you need an Altec deck cover — so you can enjoy the great outdoors (and your fantastic exterior space) all year-round.

How much does a deck cost?

The cost to build a covered deck at your Brisbane home depends on the size of your deck and the materials it’s built out of, for example, hardwood timber decking is more expensive than composite decking. Altec will provide you with a detailed quote so you know the costs involved with building your dream deck.

Our team can complete your deck on time and budget while maintaining the highest standard of workmanship. It’s important to keep in mind that the location of your property can impact the cost of your deck, as some sites require more advanced engineering during the construction process. Local weather conditions can also be a factor when it comes to deck costs, as can the complexity of the design.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I build the deck cover at the same time as the deck?

Building both at the same time is ideal, as this will help you avoid the ‘add-on’ or ‘lid’ look.

Having Altec design your deck and deck cover together means you’ll end up with a deck that truly is a superbly designed and complete extension of your home. With that said, homeowners who already have a deck without a cover shouldn’t despair – Altec can create a cover that blends right in
(more on this in the answer below).

What if my deck is already built?

No problem! This is the case for many homes and there are often many deck covering options for already-built decks. Our team of deck builders in Brisbane can design and engineer a cover to perfectly suit your existing deck. Deck cover brands have various engineering specifications, so Altec might suggest a particular brand to comply with your existing deck and achieve the desired look.

My deck builder has offered to do the roof as well (if he gets the job!). Should I agree?

This is common practice. However, take care when considering this offer. Even if a deck builder offers to include a deck cover for very little (or even for free), keep in mind that you get what you pay for. If you want a stylish and reliably waterproof cover for your deck, you’re unlikely to get this result with a cheap ‘add-on’ offer from a builder.

I want a deck and a deck cover, but I can’t find a good builder.

You can organise both through Altec! Get in touch with Brisbane’s best deck builders today and one of our design consultants will discuss your options with you.
