How to hire a great freelance Decking Professional

There is nothing more appealing than a pristine wooden decking surrounding a sparkling pool or enveloping your family barbecue area.
While you can visualize this happy picture clearly in your mind, the idea of laying all those wooden slats is daunting, not to mention back breaking.  Fear not, all you need is a Decking Installer Expert.
But where can you find one, you ask?
Well the easiest way to find a Decking Expert is on Freelancer.com. Freelancer.com will, at the touch of a button, give you lists of reputable Decking Installers.  This way you can be assured of finding a quality artisan, and an artisan is what these Decking Experts are. Laying a deck is one thing, but laying it perfectly is another all together.
What to Consider Before Laying Your Deck
Regulations
When it comes to an outdoor decking, you should ensure you have a fool-proof plan with regards to landscaping. A good landscape plan means your deck will be built around your existing garden and house layout in the best possible manner.
Laying out a wooden decking requires council regulations being met, so it’s best to let a professional work out a concrete plan and apply with all the correct authorities.  A qualified Decking Installer will know the ins and outs of all of this.
Landscaping
The positioning of your decking is vital, so your Decking Installer will consider which way your house faces. The height of the railings as well as the type of railings will also be taken into account.
Types of Timber
You should be offered the choice of hardwood or softwood. Whichever type you choose, the outdoor elements need to be considered. This includes whether the wood can withstand vermin such as termites and wood lice. Your Decking Expert will also advise you on how to treat your deck so that it will withstand the test of time. Nothing worse than a warped and fading deck in a few years time.
Cost
Decking can prove to be costly, but a good Decking professional will source the best rates for you on material.  It would be a good idea to research the fees that the Decking Installer charges too and ensure you are not being ripped off.
What Qualifications and Experience Should Your Decking Expert Have?
Project Management
A Decking Installer will have completed a diploma in the trade of Project Management
Decking Trade
As with all trades, the art of laying decking can be learnt through a trade and most Decking Installers have learnt their trade through an apprenticeship program. The years of experience learnt from a mentor accounts for a lot.  Be sure to obtain these records.
References
A good Decking Expert will have good references and you can find these on Freelancer.com should you choose to use this platform to find the right professional.
If you’re looking for a solution for your delivery needs or if you are looking to trial a  freelancer to see if they provide the levels of expertise you are looking for, using a platform such as Freelancer.com is a fantastic option.
Simply log onto the Freelancer.com website and search through a bank of talented freelancers who are willing and able to provide their services to you for your project.
