Do it yourself deckingCan you build a deck yourself? Potentially, if it’s a simple design. “A low-level, straightforward deck is generally well within the capabilities of the DIY enthusiast,” says Sycamore, who recommends getting your hands on a copy of the TDCA’s Builders’ Guide, which gives you the basics of deck building. “However, for more complex or raised designs, we recommend you call in the professionals.” There’s plenty to think about, even with a basic design. “Ensure you have the correct number of boards, plus extra to allow for wastage and mistakes that could potentially be irreversible,” says Napier. He adds that safety is a priority: the sub-frame needs to be secure and accurately laid to make sure the top is sound.Planning consent may be another issue to consider. In the UK, raised decks over 30cm from the ground and taking up more than 50 per cent of the garden (together with other extensions and outbuildings), require planning consent and may be the subject of building control regulations. “As complaints from neighbours form the majority of planning issues, it’s best to get your neighbours on board with your plans,” advises Sycamore.For advice on rules and regulations for DIY decking projects, visit www.tdca.org.uk.
