Creating Cost-Effective Outdoor Living Spaces with Outdure

Kiwis love the concept of outdoor living and this is reflected in the design of NZ homes.

The relative cost of creating outdoor living spaces is very affordable in comparison to the cost of interior construction.

With careful design consideration, outdoor tiled areas or decks don't need to be large or expensive to enhance homeowners' lifestyles. For long-term savings, it is also smart to choose products that are durable and easy to maintain.

Resortdeck is a fourth generation composite board which fits this criteria. The board looks and feels like hardwood timber but with the added attributes of UltraShield technology encasing the boards to protect them from fading and splintering.

Other factors to consider include whether a sub-structure is required for the outdoor living area. Is the space being built over a waterproof membrane, concrete or at ground level? Is the site easy for builders to access, and therefore will that impact the cost of installation?

Traditionally raised decks are supported with a timber frame, however a more efficient, long-lasting solution is the Qwickbuild sub-frame system. The lightweight aluminium framework can be used in all scenarios and is fast, efficient and affordable to install. The stylish Qwickgrates enable a flush indoor/outdoor flow, and also promote ventilation and access for maintenance.

The versatile system is designed to support decking, structural exterior tiles and synthetic turf, which easily interlock through the use of a range of hidden fasteners and accessories. Spaces can easily be customised with the mix and match surfaces to ensure outdoor living is maximised for every budget.
