North Shore deck renovations, new decking

With a young family and limited outdoor the owner of this property approached Cain Built Ltd to design and build a deck that would address there lack of indoor outdoor living.

Working with the client, the decision was made to build a new retaining wall in order to excavate the yard. This meant the deck could be extended at the same height as the existing deck structure, in turn doubling the size of the deck to 60 sqm.

Previously there was 90mm kwila decking on the original deck, however the timber was very worn and weathered and the nails used to fix the deck down had started popping up presenting a risk to the clients young family.

The new decking selected was 140mm kwila fixed down with stainless screws, Some of the excess soil was also used to help flatten off the yard for the kids’ new trampoline they had received for Christmas.


Here’s what our client had to say


“Dear Tim,

Thank you so much for a fantastic job done on our garage conversion and deck extension, both completed on time, within budget and to a very high standard.  Our previous experience with builders and subcontractors during our bathroom and en-suite renovations had left us very unhappy and lacking confidence in the building trade.

You listened to our ideas and provided sound experienced advice while continually keeping us informed of the work schedule and communicated expected costs when we changed our minds.  Even when we had a little scare about the underground pipes at 5:30am on the morning that the digging was due to commence, you arrived at our house at 5:45am to discuss our concerns and put our minds at ease, keeping the project moving.

You were very conscientious about managing the noise, dust and work schedule to accommodate our needs and even during the intense heat you just continued to work.  But to us the absolute highlight without a doubt being parents with young children around is you were professional, didn’t swear and were very polite and patient with the kids unlike all other experiences I have ever had.

So if you are looking for a hardworking, competent, polite, family friendly building crew then you have found them in CAIN BUILT LTD. We’d use them again in a heartbeat so expect a call soon Tim as we have a few projects in mind and about to get under way.”
