Why should you consider investing in a deck and pergola?
A deck and pergola, either separate or attached to your house, provide an additional valuable area in your house for you, your family, and friends to enjoy. Taking the purpose of the installation in mind, you can create stunning poolside areas, picnic tables areas in your garden or a great place to host the famous Australian day BBQ.
Decks provide a natural level and elevated surface, that can even be installed on uneven terrain. A stylish timber deck however is not complete without proper shading; a pergola provides a visually pleasing structure that can greatly complement the style of your home while protecting your guests from wind, sun, and rain.
Features and Advantages of Pergolas
Pergolas provide a natural looking roof extension to your house with insulated roofing panels; these panels offer a 3 in 1 roofing solution with roof, insulation and ceiling included. The crisp, smooth white ceiling makes insulated roof panels a much-desired choice for a pergola, and the roofing tiles can also be chosen to match the exterior roofing of your house.
Alternatively, we also provide gable or Dutch gable roofing made out of Colorbond steel that creates an ambient spacious cottage like feel. You can also fit this roofing with lighting or fans for better comfort. For the best lighting, we highly recommend polycarbonate roofing that looks a lot like glass but blocks out heat and harmful UV rays.

Features and Advantages of a Deck
Softwood: Softwood decks are the most affordable and easiest to attain but they don’t age well or last as long as other systems. However, they look great and treated pine makes a great option for those looking for attractive decking for their home.
Hardwood: Known for its dark rich colour variety, gloss, unique grain and hardiness, hardwood timber decks are a luxury well worth the investment.

However, you need to first make sure that the deck is strong and sturdy, and that it will be able to support the new weight of the pergola. Ensure that there is no damage, and if there is, make the necessary repairs.
When you are building a new pergola in this area there are a few things you can consider doing to make your pergola and deck in Sydney safer. Use ACQ-treated wood which prevents fungi or insect infestation. Install railings, as they distribute the weight and make the whole structure stronger. Attach support posts under the deck, to support the new posts above. Lastly, don’t use a heavy material for the roof as you don’t want the structure to be top heavy.
On average, a deck in Sydney costs between $200 to $1000 per square metre.
