Construction has everything to do with men and machines. But for a highly successful bonding between men and machines, nothing materialises. Thus, when it comes to building decks, it’s the perfect combo of men and tools that makes the difference. Take, for instance, us. At BB Decking, our specialists use the best tools and techniques to come up with some of the nicest decks that not only add value to our clients’ properties but bring in a marked change in their lifestyle. So quality tools used by the deck builders are as important as the deck builders themselves. On this page, we discuss the various tools that professionals use while building the decks.
Extra Long Measuring Tapes
Measurement is the key and the cornerstone of an impeccably designed deck. To ensure that the deck is designed to measure, the builders’ have to use extra-long measuring tapes that make their measurement as accurate as it can be.
An uneven slope or basement of a deck is an owner’s nightmare. It not only poses a tripping hazard but also causes a serious aberration of design. That is the reason, our professional deck builders in Brisbane would use the carpenter’s level, which will allow them to make sure, the base and every surface, including the framing, the boards installed and the overall structure of the deck is all in the same level.
While working with hand tools, installation of the framing, making the cuts, the measurements have to be as straight as they can be, so that every side and corner is even. This is where the chalk liners will come in handy. Chalk liners are tools that come with chalk-coated strings that are snapped on a surface to leave a mark for straight-line marking.
During the construction of decks, our deck building professionals in Brisbane often have to come up with angular cuts, apart from straight cuts. This allows the professionals to come up with more complex designs than the straight planks and set them up against posts, the framing, and the edges of the deck.
This is where the miter saw comes in handy. This tool comes with a pivoting blade, which will allow our Brisbane deck builders to cut pieces at precise angles. This tool helps our professionals come up with more advanced cuts, for making more creative patterns to add more aesthetic richness to the decks.
Compressed Air-powered nail gun
This is another extremely important tool that the deck building experts in Brisbane would use. Decks generally contain a number of loose parts that need to be held together. High quality compressed air-powered nail gun will come in handy, for securing brackets and anchors, and additional places for framing.
At places where the nail gun cannot be used, a cordless drill is an ideal substitute. The cordless drill comes in handy to put together pieces, which need to be held together more securely, than what a nail gun can deliver.
