Having a deck not only adds value to a home, it gives you extra space for entertaining. Boxspan is an ideal alternative to timber because there are no issues with rotting due to moisture or proximity to the ground. From a small weekend deck project to a large wrap around verandah installing a Boxspan deck system is an easy enjoyable process because it comes as a kit.
Boxspan decks and verandahs can be constructed like an upper floor (in-plane joists & bearers) or a ground floor system (joists over bearers). Typically the width of the deck and proximity to the ground will determine which is most cost effective. Bearers can either be supported by Ezipier with adjustable or fixed pier heads. If posts are required for balustrading or to support the roof above they can either begin from deck level or run from ground to roof level. Both steel and timber posts will work with Boxspan deck frames. Screw fixing timber or composite decking boards into Boxspan joists is common place with a range of self tapping fasteners.
Boxspan beams can be powder coated to match Colorbond® colours. This can be ideal if they’re exposed and can be seen from underneath. There are also a number of specialist coatings systems on the market that can match the coating to many other types of finishes such as matching beams to timber decking.
