Raised deck with L shape at Beckenham

Project - provide access deck for handicapped child with no obstructions. The raised decking patio was decided upon, with an 'L' shaped aspect for maximum space.

Ease of access to the deck was high priority as was safety aspect of access to garden - secured by matching gate. This type of deck adds so much more room to the living area of a house. An outside room no less!

The deck fitted under the door sill so there was minimal change of level from house onto deck.

At the time of carrying out this work, VAT was not added, as the handicapped access to the garden is permitted free of VAT. You will need to check with contractor and VAT office if needed to ensure that this is the case for any similar project you have in mind.

Prior to start, the access to the garden area was totally unsafe, and unsuitable
