Floor decking is often a need for new house owners for several reasons. Made of wood or composite wood (WPC), the idea of floor decking usually involves raising a floor to a certain required level.


Why Do We Do Floor Decking?

1. Cover planter box for safety

Many condominiums in Singapore come with a planter box in their balcony. This planter box is a big hole, typically half meter deep that may cause potential tripping hazards. House owners with kids and pets are particularly concerned about these planter boxes.

2. Cover unsightly base flooring

Sometimes new house owners discover a certain outdoor area which is not aesthetically to their liking. Such an area could be concrete floor, soil ground or tile floor. At times, there is even a visible drain that is not so pleasing to see.

3. Replace existing wood decking

Wood floor decking may also deteriorate due to natural wear and tear over many years. This means that there is also a demand to redo new floor decking.


4. Cover unused Jacuzzi pool

While not many houses have a jacuzzi facility, we do get enquiries to cover jacuzzi with floor decking every year. When a new owner moves in to a new house and discovers a jacuzzi system which he does not appreciate, he would realize that covering the jacuzzi with floor decking is a cheaper solution to removing the jacuzzi system.
