This is the first of a series of case studies designed to show you how not to build a deck. They will provide you with examples of bad practice so you can learn from the mistakes of others.
Most of the decking faults we see are caused by poor practice. The timber deck in this case study was the subject of a TDCA deck inspection. It illustrates some typical examples of what can go wrong. What's sad is practically all of the issues identified could have easily been avoided.
If you want to avoid such issues, use an independently assessed DeckMark accredited installer.
