Whether used as a retreat or for entertaining, decks and patios are multi-functional outdoor living spaces.

With the current trend for outdoor entertaining and relaxation, building a new decking area is more popular than ever before.

Rules & Regulations

Before we can plan or build a deck, there are a few rules and regulations to consider.

• For outdoor structures like fences, decks and retaining walls, the main reason you may require a consent is if you are building over a certain height. You do not require a building consent for decks that are up to 1.5 metres above ground.

• Any deck where someone can fall 1 metre or more requires a barrier and you may require a resource consent.

• If the deck is attached to the house then you should allow a 12mm gap on the ribbon plate to stop moisture retention behind the plate which can lead to mould mildew and eventually rot.

• And most importantly, decks must still meet other building requirements, primarily the durability and structural requirements. Check with your designer or builder on those requirements.

Tip: Check out Auckland City Council webpage – Fences, Decks & Retaining Walls. Alternatively, contact Style Plus | Renovations and we will guide you through your building process.
