Elevated deck replaced in North London.

Another distastrous deck waiting to collapse due to the poor use of materials and construction techniques. Our task was to design and construct a new one that provided a better use of the available space and a dry play area for the children using modern building techniques and materials that would stand the test of time. The 3 before pictures show you some of the many problems the new owners had encountered. Rotten and badly spaced balustrading using rail supports nailed to the deck. Rotten structural timbers and stair case. Mostly due to the water traps the builders had created.
Internal carpentry techniques cannot be used on external structures.
