Decks & Pergolas

Small Addition - Large Difference


Living on Sydney’s Northern Beaches is fantastic, however space is limited and costs are high. Decks and pergolas are a fantastic way to create the space you need, without going anywhere.


There are loads of reasons why you’d consider having a deck installed on your property, however most commonly, we find that a new deck has the ability to open up your entertaining area tenfold.

At Braeside Building, we’ve worked on dozens of projects that have enabled us to (in some instances) double a living room, by removing an external wall and installing a beautiful bi-fold, or sliding door that opens up onto an incredible deck.

Decks and pergolas are at home in Australia and especially here on the Northern Beaches as the climate and the surrounding areas are so enjoyable for the better part of the year.

If the weather is good, why would you NOT want to entertain guests outside?

That might be in the form of a good old Aussie BBQ, or it could simply be dinner or breakfast with the family. Either way, there’s no better way to take full advantage of the climate and surroundings that we’re so blessed with by installing a deck.


Are you spending as much time as you would like in your garden?

With a giant hole in the Ozone Layer looming above us, exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays is a constant threat to us Australians. Living on the Northern Beaches, we’re also partial to experiencing some pretty amazing storms and the conditions that come with the package.

This doesn’t mean that we should be cooped up inside, however.

Where a deck can open up the entertaining space of your home, a pergola can open up your entertaining space externally.
There’s really nothing better than sitting in the garden, enjoying nature, knowing that you’re safe from the elements.

Dining alfresco, afternoon tea, breakfast, or even drinks with friends are so much more enjoyable under the protection of a pergola. If it’s hot, not a problem, the sun is off your heads. If it’s wet, not a problem either.

Pergolas enable us to take full advantage of the climate, regardless of what it’s throwing our way.

If you like the idea of increasing some of your living space and you feel like decks and pergolas might help you achieve that, give us a call today and speak to the team at Braeside Building.
