There are many reasons why you should choose Emporium Building Group for a deck, pergola or patio in Canberra.
Quality decks, pergolas and patios add considerable “lifestyle” value to a property – particularly if they take advantage of local climate conditions. To ensure “structural integrity” in a new deck, pergola or patio, it’s imperative to use a licensed builder.
Decks in Canberra can be broadly categorised into four types: attached decks (attached to the home), detached decks (built away from the home), wraparound decks and multi-tier decks. At Emporium Building Group – your Canberra decking specialist – we build all four types.
Traditional house decks in Canberra are typically made from a hardwood, such as jarrah, teak, spotted gum, merbau, grey ironbark, stringybark or blackbutt. In recent years, treated pine (a softwood) has grown in popularity due to its cost-effectiveness and suitability for staining / painting.
For property owners seeking a low-maintenance alternative to natural timber, composite decking (a finished product made from wood fibre and plastic) is arguably the way to go. Another non-timber option to consider is aluminium decking.
Pergolas and Patios
People often get confused between pergolas, patios and patio roofs. As leading patio and pergola builders in Canberra, we can help you understand the key differences.
A pergola is an open-air structure that blends in with the garden. Pergolas in Canberra are often adorned with grapevines, ferns and creeping plants. Although pergolas can be covered, they usually have an open roof design (louvres are common). Most pergolas in Canberra are made from timber, steel or aluminium.
On the other hand, a patio is an outdoor entertaining area that blends in with the house. An open-air patio usually has a floor and a roof (to provide shelter). Popular flooring materials include timber, composite decking, concrete, ceramic tile, flagstone, gravel and artificial grass. Patio roofs tend to be made from steel or polycarbonate.
At Emporium Building Group, we build a wide range of quality pergolas and patios in Canberra.
