Re: decking over concrete

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @tarlochan. We're so pleased to have you join us and look forward to reading about all your projects and plans for around the house and garden. We're sure you will get plenty of helpful information, advice and inspiration from our amazing community members for this decking project as well as many others to come in the future.

 

Let me start by recommending that you check out our guide How to guide a low-level deck, written by D.I.Y. expert @Adam_W. I'd also recommend you share some photos so members can see what you are working with, plus perhaps a sketch of what you are planning to do. 

 

Our resident Bunnings D.I.Y. expert @MitchellMc will be more than happy to assist when he is back on the site on Friday. 

 

Many thanks, and please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site.

Re: decking over concrete

Hi @tarlochan, and welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community.

 

I trust the guide provided by @Jason has answered many of your questions, but I'm keen to assist further and encourage you to provide a few more details on your project. It would be great to know how high above the concrete slab you want the frame to sit and if there are any height restrictions you need to work within. Generally, you can use angled brackets connected to the concrete slab with Dynabolts. Coachscrews with a washer on them can be used to fix the bracket to the timber frame. It's always best to leave at least a 10mm gap under the frame to allow water drainage and airflow.

 

I look forward to hearing more about your project and providing advice as you complete it. Please let me know if you need further assistance or have questions.

 

Mitchell
