Aluminium DryDeck Berowra Heights Decking Project by Elite Additions
Our client was a young, growing family needing more space without relocating. More space for mum and dad entertaining guests & additional space for the kids to use.
Elite Additions added a master bedroom with ensuite by expanding the upper level of the home, remodelled the existing rooms downstairs to be converted into a rumpus room to entertain the kids. An additional area focused around relaxing/entertaining guests in an outdoor alfresco/dining space which overlooks the local bushland.
The current abode is located in the northern suburbs of Sydney backing onto the stunning Berowra Waters. As a consequence, the property is categorised as being within a Flame Zone so non-traditional materials need to be used for parts of the home extension/remodelling.
As the home is in a flame zone, aluminium decking seemed like the best option as it was the highest quality alternative to regular hardwood decking.
After doing some research, we came across an aluminium decking alternative which seemed to be the perfect flame-zone solution for our clients’ project. We spoke with NexGEN Decking and they recommended the BAL-FZ rated Aluminium DryDeck 2.0 product for the deck & screening.
The product is more expensive than traditional hardwoods out there but we were limited as to what we could build with due to the requirements of the location. The installation was easy and simple and NexGEN were a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process.
It’s hard to believe but the product itself looks and feels like proper hardwood. Our clients absolutely love the look & feel of the aluminium decking. The added benefits of it being slip, stain and mould resistant made it a no-brainer to go with as a long-term solution for the deck.
As a builder, the NexGen Aluminium Decking is what I am going to recommend to clients in the future. It’s super easy to install, it is weather resistant and low maintenance which is a great option for busy families.
