Questions You May Have for Your Decking Company in Newcastle (And Novascope’s Answers)
When you plan to hire a custom decking company in Newcastle, you want to do your homework. Not every deck builder is as experienced, insured, or reputable as you would like them to be. As such, there are a few questions you should ask any deck builder you consider hiring.
Below, we’ve listed some of the key queries you will likely have for your prospective builder. To help make matters simpler for you, we have also included Novascope Limited’s answers to each question.
How long have you been building decks?
Experience isn’t everything, but in general, a decking company in Newcastle will only become better at what they do with more years and projects under their belt. At Novascope, we have been in business since 2005, but our carpenters have a combined 30 years of experience in deck building.
Are you insured?
You want to make sure that you are protected against liability and financial losses in case something goes wrong with your deck project. Novascope Limited carries $20 million in public liability insurance coverage, as well as an additional policy for workers’ compensation.
What materials do you use?
This question is a big one for any decking company in Newcastle. Excellent craftsmanship only means so much if the materials on your deck are cheap and flimsy. At Novascope, we usually build with high-quality hardwoods such as Merbau or Jarrah, or lower cost (but still highly dependable) alternatives like treated pine. However, if you have a particular type of timber that you would like us to use for your deck, just say the word, and we will source it for you. We never work with composite materials for our decks.
