Reply To: Decking Design, Style over Substance


Great, so when quantifying materials for your installations, do you calculate your joist and beam span depending upon what decking materials you are using for that given project. How do you convey to your guys installing where to put the beams and at what centres, same for joist centres? Or perhaps you install the whole project yourself, you would save a fortune by calculating what you are going to do – this would minimise waste and also save you time on site thinking “now where does this go”, “ah yes, that looks about right”.

I see your point about as soon as the client shows you where they want a deck you see the design… nothing wrong with this, a great selling point. 

Be great to see you enroll for the BMTRADA decking professionals course, what do you recon..
