Wooden Decks In South Africa
Timber decks have become the fashion addition to many homes in the USA, UK and now in South Africa. It is easy to see why an attractive wooden deck creates a unique aura of comfort. A well-planned wooden deck, not quite an indoor, nor an outdoor entertainment area, links your house and garden enhancing the quality of both all year round.
Our ideal high-veld climate optimizes the need for a timber deck, which will become the focal point for all al fresco dining, daytime relaxation, sunbathing and extending your lifestyle into an evening area for braais and parties. The ultimate entertainment venue!
The timber deck designs and possibilities are endless. A sundeck, viewing deck, a pool-braai deck, a veranda, add to your living space, resurface your patio, cover an unsightly inaccessible corner of your garden, garden pathways and landscaping - whatever it is you want!
A deck costs less to build than any other indoor room. Few home improvements can match a deck for the enjoyment you will add to your lifestyle, the utilization you will get from your deck and the value you will add to your home!
African Decks has built a reputation for high standards of both the product and our customer care. This has resulted in many of our commercial and private projects being built through the recommendations of existing clients.
The natural character of solid timber compliments perfectly any garden, pool and outdoor entertainment areas. Whether creating a patio that adjoins your house, a poolside deck, or a balcony for sunbathing, the beauty and appeal of solid timber will remain for years to come.

African Decks has a policy of sourcing and using only the best materials for any job, no matter how big or small. We highly recommend African hardwoods, as they are accustomed to the harsh climatic conditions of South Africa. African Decks can of course supply and install any other timber that a client may choose.
Our teams are all qualified and experienced carpenters. For exceptional quality, they use traditional decking techniques in constructing your wooden/timber deck. No corners are cut; the quality and durability of the finished deck is paramount.
The construction of a home deck of average size, will take approximately four days.
Although the African hardwoods will last for many years in the open environment, it is always advisable to treat the deck from time to time. There are two traditional treatment options. Regular oiling of the deck, required approximately every 40 days, and sealing of the deck with a polyurethane based sealant, which should be re-applied approximately every 6 months.
