For the purpose of joining the deck to your homes, one has to be cautious of not blocking any air bricks and that there is not interfering with the course that is damp proof. There are some specific tips with respect to the DIY Decking . The first tip goes for the elevated decking on concrete. If there is a portion of your elevated deck which extends over the concrete, there is no need to take the concrete upwards. So, the post should be placed in the metal post supports and moved down through the expanding masonry bolts. Chalk is to be used rather than pegs for marking the site and while squaring it move the wooden profiles ahead of the concrete even though it is at a distance from the site.
The first step in DIY Decking is to fix the one joist directly with the masonry. After that the rest of the sub frame is to set in line with the masonry. At every 400mm intervals the holes are drilled along the length of the joist. These holes are arranged in an alternate towards the bottom and top so that the joist is not weakened and it is ensured that it does not overlap with the final placement of the joist hangers.
The second step in DIY Decking involves the checking of the level of the joist and marking from every hole on the wall. The board is then removed as well as the drill from the masonry from the marked positions.
