A well constructed and practical wooden deck is an investment in one’s property and style of living. We have witnessed many decks that have been poorly designed and constructed causing sagging, which can become dangerous.
At Handyman Cape Town | The Home Doctors we comply with strict regulations and design compliances. We ensure that only the finest hardwoods are used to suit our South African climate. The ultimate choice of decking materials / hardwood is determined by the clients budget, aesthetic and structural design.
The support structures that we recommend range to suit your wooden deck application range from wooden poles, double layers of hard wood timber, brick and plaster support columns, ornate precast cement pillars. The underside support structure of the deck is normally built in a SA hardwood or tantalised Pine wood.
In order to create the exact look and aesthetic appeal that you would like to achieve, there are a wide variety of materials available in Cape Town to suit your colour scheme and your decking application

Our workmanship is guaranteed and professional.When fixing a the individual decking boards to the support structure, we use a variety of installations methods to suit your decking application, from visible screws, to plugged screws and hidden screw systems. With extremely hardwood installations, for example Balau wood, we utilise rust proof stainless steel screws and decking clips for each board joist. This allows the timber to expand in the wet months and contract in the dry months.
