“Thanks so much to Matt and Roxanne for all their help putting this DIY project together. The service and support from them was outstanding.
We chose the NexGEN Jarrah composite boards, and installed them over the DeckCell subframe system. We sent Roxanne a sketch of what we had in mind and she quoted us for everything we needed, including all the fixings. This was then all supplied in a single delivery, exactly when we were told it would be.
Installing the decking ourselves was the biggest challenge we set ourselves in the transformation of our backyard, and considering this was our first time doing this, it was pretty straight forward. It did highlight the importance of good ground preparation prior to laying the decking, but once we got that sorted, the decking itself came up a treat.
The DeckCell subframe saved us an enormous amount of work. Because we were installing the decking at ground level around the pool, to install standard joist supports would have meant digging out 300-400mm, which would have also meant rethinking drainage levels etc. If I had my time again I think I would have used the 50mm Deck Cell instead of the 30mm DeckCell, simply because we also installed deck lights in the boards and this would have given us a little more room underneath to feed the wiring through.
The finished product is exactly what we had dreamt of – thank you so much guys.
Mike and Jo Smith”
