Re: Low profile deck

Great to see you join the discussion and make your first post @pasmith. I'm sure @hadi will be happy to assist when he can, and @MitchellMc can also share his thoughts.

 

Looking forward to reading more about your own projects and plans. Please let us know whenever you need a hand or have something to share.

Re: Low profile deck

Hi Smithy (@pasmith), 

 

It appears @hadi has used the Good Times system of decking. This includes the frames and frame supports. There are frame supports running along the wall and I would hazard a guess to say that they did not fix the frames to the house.

 

We look forward to hearing more about your own decking project and would encourage you to let us know if you need any assistance.

Re: Low profile deck

G’day @MitchellMc and and @Jason - thanks very much for your speedy replies. 
Regarding the Good Times prefab deck kits, is there a risk of movement if it’s not secured to a wall (if available); or is the weight of the prefab timber heavy enough to prevent movement?

Re: Low profile deck

Hi @pasmith,

 

The Good Times decking frames need to be attached somehow, whether with the supports into the ground or L brackets onto concrete. The only reason you would fix to a wall is that you cannot fix them to the ground.
