  1. Ensure the foundations for your deck are secure. Also, there are many different methods of securing your deck to your house, ensure that your deck isn’t just nailed to your house.
  2. Check and make sure the quality of the materials used for your deck is of good quality and appropriate strength.
  3. Appropriate water protection for your deck is essential; you will want to ensure rain water runs away and out of your deck.
  4. Make sure your deck builders are insured and licensed. Always ask for proof on insurance as there have been some horror stories from smaller deck builders in Sydney.
