Hiring The Right Carpenter Brisbane

If you're in need of carpentry work, it's essential that you hire the right carpenter for your requirements. Carpentry is a highly skilled profession that requires extensive training and specialist equipment, not to mention the ability to complete a job to the lowest possible budget. DIY carpentry might be a tempting project to embark on, but it's likely to result in a poorly constructed and potentially dangerous piece of work, wasted money and even more wasted time.

But how do you make sure that the carpenter working on your house, building, or pet project can deliver, if not exceed your expectations? Here are a few things you can do:

1. Determine what kind of carpentry work you need.

Commercial carpenters in Brisbane specialise in many areas. This is why we have framers (carpenters who construct the basic framework or structural skeleton of houses, buildings, and other infrastructure), joisters (experts at installing floor joists), trim carpenters (designs, crafts, and installs moulding, skirting boards, and ornamental wood trim), roofers (specialising in roof construction), and rough carpenters (experts at wood maintenance and repair, as well as temporary wood scaffolding and framework construction).

Identifying your needs narrows down your search for a carpenter in Brisbane, and ensures you get the right person for the job.

2. Ask for recommendations.

You might know someone who’s recently had some carpentry work done on their home or property. You can cut your search for carpenters short by getting your friends’ and colleagues’ input on where to go, who to hire. More importantly, you’ll get a first-hand account on the talent and quality of the output of the carpenters whom you’re considering to hire. You can also look prospects up on the Internet; they might have websites or social media pages where customers leave reviews. Talented carpenters with outstanding track records will have many customers who can attest to their skills, professionalism and work quality.

Whether you’re renovating, expanding, installing new fixtures, or starting projects from the ground up, professional carpenters will have a thing or two to say about your proposed plans. While you will no doubt want to preserve your original plans, it would not hurt to get a professional’s opinion. They might find potential pain points you haven’t considered or recommend faster, cheaper or easier alternatives to what you have in mind. Carpenters whose recommendations give you every advantage — lower costs, cheaper labour, better output — are the ones you should consider hiring.

Identifying your needs narrows down your search for a carpenter in Brisbane, and ensures you get the right person for the job.

3. Request a quote for the entire project.

Seasoned carpenters should be able to give you a ballpark estimate on how much you will likely spend for the materials, equipment, labour and permits processing. Asking for a quote is also an excellent method for deciding who to hire. You wouldn’t want to sign a contract with a carpenter whose services you can’t afford, no matter how remarkable it is.

Furthermore, when selecting a local firm to work with, you should also look to filter them out by where they are based and their service locations. JVK & Sons is based on the Northside, however, we service the Southside as well as other regional suburbs on a case by case basis.

4. Ask about insurance and certifications.

Professional carpenters may or may not have insurance coverage—you’ll want to hire one who do—knowing that your chosen carpenter is covered for workplace accidents and accidental damage on your property can give you that additional peace of mind.

Certifications are also a form of reassurance: it means your carpenter has undergone extensive training from TAFE institution. You also need to make sure the person before you is a professional who’s truly qualified to work on your home, business, or property. Australia requires carpenters to earn a Certificate III in Carpentry to qualify for residential and commercial work. When you choose to work with JVK & Sons, you’re choosing a team with extensive experience within the industry and on million dollar projects. Rest assured your project or idea is in perfect hands when you choose us!

Will Salt Damage my Composite Deck?
Will Salt Damage my Composite Deck?

The composite deck is made from eco-friendly building material manufactured using recycled materials put together to give the finish & feel of wood. It is becoming popular as it is easy to maintain and ideal for people who want their decks to last for a long time. It is the first choice of environmentalists to make sure that their deck didn’t come from a tree.

However, there is one question that people ask over the internet is will salt harm my composite deck?

This question comes as the composite deck looks similar to wooden decks and many people think will salt damage the composite deck as well.

Well, the straightforward answer to this question is No, but still many people have doubts about it. To clear all doubts, we have put together this blog! Keep reading. We have a lot of information to share on salt & composite decks.

  1. Understand the effect of Salt on Composite Deck

People are concerned about putting salt on their decks because it has a drying effect, which can damage its strength and rigidity. It is true if you have a wooden deck because it will dry out the wood. However, the composite deck is made from recycled material and made to look like wood. But, it is not real wood, and this is the reason why most manufacturers recommend using rock salt in winters.

Abrasive substances can damage the composite deck surface, but salt is not coarse enough to damage the surface. However, we would still recommend you to rub or press the salt against composite decking. With little care and attention composite decks can last over long periods. It is a great alternative to wooden decks and an ideal choice for people living near the beach.

  • Clean the salt residue

Salt residue is a flaky substance that covers your composite deck in contact with salt. It looks dirty and makes your deck slippery. Cleaning the residue is easy, and you have to take a pressure washer, connect it to a garden hose and give a strong spray of water. In case if the residue layer is very thick, then use some phosphoric acid to remove all the stains.

  • Clean your deck regularly

Cleaning your deck regularly is simple: rinse it with soapy water until the water runs clear showing no sign of dirt or stains. In case you have any plants or any other accessories, then make sure to use organic soap. Chemical-based soaps can damage your beloved plants.

  • Protect your composite deck

A composite deck is vulnerable to abrasive materials and can damage the entire surface. Hence you should avoid using abrasive cleaning brushes. Stay away from oil, as it can leave permanent stains on the composite decking. Make sure that you use plastic shovels to remove snow during winters, as the metal shovels can damage the deck’s surface.

Which is the Best Material for Decking (Wood vs. Vinyl vs. Composite)
Which is the Best Material for Decking (Wood vs. Vinyl vs. Composite)

So, you are planning to build a deck, where you can party, chill and relax with your friends and family. You shared the idea with your family and they loved it too!

Getting the thumbs up from your family has excited you and now you are looking to build the best deck that complements your house. But, there’s one small problem, you are not able to decide which decking material you should choose?

Well, if you are also facing a situation like this, then you are at the right blog! We are going to mention the top materials available for decking in 2021.

There are 3 main decking materials that you can choose from:

  1. Treated wood deck.
  2. Composite.
  3. Vinyl (also referred as PVC).

Out of these three, wood is a natural product, whereas the composite and vinyl decking materials are man-made artificial materials. You can choose the one based on choice of style, maintenance, and durability.

In the further section, we are going to guide you through the process to choose the best decking material.

Understanding the Decking materials: Choose the one as per your preference.

As explained earlier there are three main types of decking materials available: Wood, Composite and Vinyl. You need to understand the differences and advantages of all these to make the right choice. Here are some advantages/disadvantages of these decking materials:

Wood Decking: All time classic

Wooden decks are the all-time classics, and these are built on pressure-treated wood. It was only a choice for decades, as vinyl and composite were not invented then. It is the cheapest and the most popular option to choose among decking materials. The low cost is the reason why most people still prefer to use wood for decking.

Keep in mind that wooden decks are prone to rot, mould, splintering and damage from insects. If you want to keep the wooden deck in the best of condition, then you should consider repainting/re-staining the wooden deck every summer.

People consider going for a wooden deck, when they are low on budget. But when you consider the cost of maintenance then it costs higher than both the Vinyl and composite decks.

Advantages:

  • You can paint/stain it to any colour.
  • Most affordable material for decking.

Disadvantages

  • Requires frequent maintenance every year.
  • Less durable than the Composite and Vinyl decking.
  • Prone to splintering.

Composite Decking: More durable than Wooden Decking

The composite decking is similar to the traditional wooden deck in appearance. Also, the most common comparison here is of the wood vs composite decking material. But, the similarity is only in terms of looks because the composite decks come with a lot of advantages that make it easier to own. For example, the composite decks do not require to be repainted or restrained again to protect against rot and mould. Also, the composite decks never splinter and these low maintenance advantages make it the best decking material.

But, the composite decks are prone to getting more scratches upon daily use and they fade in prolonged exposure to the sun.  Coming to the cost, the composite gets their place between the wood and vinyl deck. But, if you want your composite board to last, then you need to take care against the swelling/rotting(due to moisture).

You can also refer to our guide for Choosing the Decking material for your house!

Advantages:

  • Looks like real wood.
  • Does not require frequent repainting/staining.
  • Lasts longer than the wooden decks.
  • Less prone to rooting/moulds.

Disadvantages:

  • Composite decks are more prone to scratches and accidental chipping.
  • The colour fades away in contact with sunlight.

Vinyl Decking Material: Most Expensive and Highly Durable

Vinyl is the most expensive and the best decking material around the world. It is the best as it comes with maintenance-free advantages of a composite deck providing a luxury look & feel.

Vinyl decking is available in multiple colour shades, it comes in wood-grain patterns to rustic patterns. It is less prone to the damage of scratches like the composite boards. Also, other materials fade out in contact with the sun, whereas the vinyl comes with protection against the sun. Along with all these advantages, vinyl comes with the highest cost for decking materials on the market.

Advantages:

  • Aesthetically pleasing and premium looks.
  • No frequent repainting staining is required.
  • Lasts longer(come with a lifelong warranty)
  • Does not rot and grow mould.
  • Highest resistance against colour fading.
  • 100% water-resistant.

Cons:

  • Cost is very high.

Wood vs Composite vs Vinyl Decking

The above mentioned are the advantages and disadvantages of the decking materials. While buying you should consider your budget, and the maintenance required every year and select the one that goes well with your house’s look.

You won’t make a bad decision if you select any of these materials as per budget, requirements, choice of style, etc. But, we recommend that if you can afford the vinyl decking then you should definitely go for it! Homeowners who do not want to get into the hassles of maintenance should prefer the vinyl decking, as they do not need to repaint or restrain their decks. Also, Vinyl decks last for the longest period of time which covers up the high upfront cost involved. It will give you the peace of mind to enjoy barbeque/parties on your deck for the longest period of time. The vinyl/composite decks come with the best warranty packages to back their durability.

Can Composite Decking Get Slippery When Wet?
Can Composite Decking Get Slippery When Wet?

As professional deck builders, we take the safety of our clients as our topmost priority. We always recommend our clients choose the best decking materials, as these are not only beautiful but safe as well.

If you are planning to build a courtyard or a patio, then you must consider choosing a composite deck. These are suitable for outdoor use as they are made from recycled plastic and wood. It comes with the same finish as wood with high durability. These do not deteriorate in contact with water and are ideal for people living in harsh weather without any extra maintenance.

Everybody wants the best safety for their family, and we want to serve you with the best. Now, one of the most common questions: “Is Composite Decking Slippery?”

Yes, the composite decks are made using special material to avoid all possibilities of slipping/falling. In the majority of cases, it will not cause any accidents. Even if the composite deck is wet, then it should not be slippery, but there are still chances that the composite deck might feel slippery at times. In this blog, we have mentioned the top reasons why your composite deck might feel slippery at times.

Top Reasons Why your Deck Might Feel Slippery

In general, the composite decks are not slippery. But there can be multiple reasons why a composite deck might feel slippery. Here are the reasons:

  • Dirt and Debris: Over time, the dirt and debris fall and accumulate on your patio. If this situation continues over a long time, then it might be a safety threat to you and your loved ones. It is not a fact about uncleanliness, but also of mould formation. If this is left untreated, then your composite deck might become slippery due to grown mould and fungus. This is something unnatural with the composite decks, but mould and fungus can grow on the debris, leaves and pollen. 
  • Accumulation of Ice Water: Winter season can make your deck very slippery, and it is not a particular case with composite decks. Composite decks are not slippery with water, but they can get slippery if there is an accumulation of water and ice on the surface. Apart from this, the composite deck can cause accidents, and damage the patio as well.
  • Old Composite decks prone to the slippery surface: If you have an old composite deck, then there are chances that the deck might become slippery with time. The older generations of composite decks absorb the moisture faster that can lead to mould and moss formation.

How do I prevent the composite decks from getting slippery?

Now that we have explained to you the possible reasons why your composite deck might slip. Let’s learn about the ways to prevent composite decks from getting slippery. You can follow all these tips to make sure that you remove all possibilities of slipping on composite decks:

  • Clean your deck or patio properly: The first step here is to make sure that your deck/patio stays clean of the fallen leaves, dirt, debris, and pollen. As we have explained earlier, this increases the possibilities of slipping, therefore you should scrub them with a brush. But, make sure that you do not do this vigorously that damages the floors.
  • Keep the deck dry: Composite decks do not absorb moisture, but there are chances of moulds and algae developing over the surface. But, keep in mind that you should keep your floors dry during the winters. It decreases the chances of slipping, but you should protect your deck. One of the most common practices to tackle winters is to use abrasive methods to remove the ice.

  • Use non-slip rugs: An excellent way to remove the chances of slippage is to use non-slip rugs that improve the traction of your feet on the surface. It is one of the best ways to remove all kinds of rubber rugs and mats during the winter/rainy season when floors are wet.
