It is the dream of Gold Coast residents to have a deck and patio completely constructed from timber on the Surfers Paradise coastline, with access leading to an attached public swimming pool and gym. Unfortunately this dream appears to be little more than wishful thinking for the local council, who has recently rezoned this part of Surfers Paradise to become a residential area and hence requires any deck or patio built in accordance with its new classification. This means that any deck or patio built in this zone must consist of at least 40% timber. This strict requirement has resulted in a flurry of Gold Coast based companies producing their own composite decking systems, which are designed to provide exactly the same levels of sustainability as traditional timbers but are also cheaper to use and install.
One such company is Emerald Seas Apartments, which has been supplying Gold Coast households with timber decking systems for more than 10 years. The company’s director, John Sutherland, says that the change in council requirements means that most Gold Coast homeowners will now have to find another way to meet their decking needs. ” timber decking gold coast is really about providing a space to enjoy the outdoors in, not just a place to sit and have a beverage”, he says. “The whole idea behind timber decking Gold coast is to get people outside more, rather than sitting at home watching TV or playing games”. To achieve this, Emerald Seas relies on a range of patented technologies to provide their customers with a completely sustainable structure, built to Australian building standards and using natural and organic materials wherever possible.
Among the most popular products are their beach-themed designer decks, which are crafted using durable cedar and sand sourced from the renowned Surfers Paradise locations. Their unique beach house design combines contemporary features with classic beach-themed designs, allowing the deck to be completely transformed into any sort of outdoor room, from a family lounge, an outdoor kitchen, a pool, a playroom or even a craft room. Beach-themed designer decks are also available to use along the beaches, creating something unique for the Gold Coast lifestyle. These decks are built to Australian Building Standards (ABCS) and feature a distinctive coastal appeal. Emerald Seas takes pride in its environmentally-friendly approach to outdoor living and has recently begun offering recycled timber products for its more environmentally-conscious customers.
