With Summer approaching fast, it might be time to get a move on that much needed deck renovation. With building supply shortages and the potential for summer lockdowns it is the best time to renovate your deck so you can have a space to kick it back in the heat. West Auckland summers are best spent on the deck with a BBQ after all.
Why start now?
If you’ve seen any headlines over the past few months then you will have read about the building supply shortages plaguing the industry. Timber has been one of the hardest materials to source for building and renovators. This makes the job of building a deck rather hard, seeing as they’re typically made of wood. Getting a head start could be the difference between you getting your project completed in time for summer and not.
Amendments to building consents have doubled since 2020. As many builders are forced to change plans to incorporate alternative materials that are more readily available. With materials taking weeks and sometimes months to arrive, early planning is your best bet.
Many building companies are already beginning to enact waiting lists for clients. Our advice is to get in contact with a team like Maintain To Profit early and have your finances sorted now. That way extensive plans can be made and materials ordered. Decking timber in particular is still facing a three-to-six month lag. So even with early planning that dream summer deck renovation may still be out of reach.
It is best to get in contact with a renovation specialist sooner rather than later if you have plans for any kind of renovation. The team at Maintain To Profit West Auckland is happy to have a chat and discuss the best course of action for your deck renovation.
