Wooden Deck Built in Padfield Park, Pinetown
This wooden deck was built in Doone Village Retirement Village in Padfield Park, Pinetown.
We used an H3 and H4 CCA Treated substructure with 19 x 68mm balau deck boards. The balustrade was balau pots and capping with marine grade wire rope. It is always better to use wire rope when you don’t want the view to be impeded when sitting on the deck as it is less obtrusive than balau. It isn’t however as safe, as small kids can pull the wire rope open to an opening greater than 100mm. So it should be avoided on decks that are fairly high. The wire rope we use is a 4mm marine grade wire rope with swages. The 4mm is the only one that won’t tarnish.
We used bidim below as the section near the house is low level and one can’t get below to weed or cut any grass that grows below the deck.
We left this one without any decking oil so that it can grey naturally which reduces maintenance cost going forward.
