Timber Deck Repairs

Does your timber deck have structural problems you don’t even know about, that will make it a dangerous trap for your family sometime in the near future!


We’re often called out for a quick timber deck surface restoration only to find there are dangerous structural problems that need to be repaired.

It is really pointless to make the surface of a timber deck look magnificent if the boards are not properly secured, the nails are protruding or the foundation itself is ready to collapse, but unfortunately this is what often happens!

A lack of checking and preparation will ensure you have major problems in the weeks or months following your restoration. The money you have spent will go down the drain, as you’ll often have to do it all again once the repair work is completed.

When we carry out timber deck repairs, we ensure your deck is safe and Building Codes Australia compliant, by first completing a comprehensive 15 point safety audit which identifies the work that needs to be done.

This includes:

  • Replacing broken or splintered boards and timbers.
  • Replacing any loose or twisted boards that may be a trip hazard.
  • Replacing rotten boards or timbers and identify the cause of the rot
  • Countersinking any raised nails or screws that may cause cuts and lacerations to bare feet or pets
  • Identifying the cause of any mould, mildew or excessive moisture
  • Repairing any damage caused by pets or excessive foot traffic
  • Identifying and remove any damage or entry points associated with termites.
  • Repairing and replacing all decking, joists, bearers and supports to ensure they comply with BCA standards 1684 – Residential Timber Frame Construction
  • Installing additional frame timbers for spa’s or heavy furniture so the deck has the correct weight bearing capacity to meet BCA standards
  • Repairing UV sun damage and “ checking “ of timber and boards
  • Replacing water damaged timbers caused by damp pots, lawn sprinklers, leaking taps or air-conditioner overflows
  • Repairing loose or cracked treads on stairs or steps that may give way or be a safety risk.
  • Repairing loose and damaged handrails or balustrades to ensure they comply to Australian Standards

When we work on your timber deck repairs you know it will be Building Codes Australia compliant. We will identify the cause of the damage and rectify it to prevent it from happening again. Your family will be able to enjoy your timber deck in complete safety for many years to come!
