Spring has arrived and now is the perfect time to get your outdoor entertaining area ready for warm spring afternoons and cool summer evenings.

Here we have some great cost effective and practical ideas for your outdoor space, that won't break the bank.

Inspect Your Deck

This seems like an unlikely topic to start with, but decks needs regular, ideally yearly inspection to ensure its safe and durable enough to cater to your summer parties!  Take the time to inspect the deck, looking for:

  • Loose screws or nails that are popping out.  These could cause someone to hurt themselves.  Ensure all nails and screws are replaced or tightened.
  • Look for warping, damaged or loose decking boards or handrails.  Weak or rotting floor boards should be removed and replaced.  Handrails and posts should be replaced if there is sign of fatigue.  For longevity replace timber for stainless steel handrails and posts.  
  • Tighten any loose balustrade wires.  It is National Construction Code Regulations to ensure a safe and reliable balustrade system if your deck is over 1 metre off the ground.
