Simply calculate the total square metres in the floor area OR lineal metres of board .
What Spacing are the floor joist centers, What size are the decking boards.
Then simply phone our distributors or head office and we will calculate the quantities for your job.
As a guide – we have TWO pack sizes Kit No. 5, & Kit No. 20 each number 5, & 20 represents close to square metre quantities – If you have 110 mm wide decking and you have 18m2 then a Kit number 20 will work.
OTE: please check to see if any steps are included and any other areas like seats OR RISER BOARD TO GO AROUND THE OUTSIDE DOWN TO GROUND.
Ready Reconner for Bill of Quantities
The estimates in the kits are approximate coverage only and all quantities are based on the design of the area and the shape – these will vary the coverage and estimates of cover. Coverage assumptions – are based on the joists set @ 450 mm centres and using from 90mm up to 140mm wide decking boards. Each pack of Deck-Max™ will show coverage per pack so you can estimate for your Bill of Quantities.
e.g. a Kit No. 20 will cover from 16 to 23 square metres in area.
Always check with Deck-Max™ to be sure your estimates are close to final quantities, if you are tendering as a contractor I would recommend you take the lower side of each coverage estimate to be sure of your budget.
e.g. if I had 35 sq.m. area I would allow for 2 x Kit No. 20.
If you are happy to buy base/minimum quantity and buy a few to finish it is ideal to buy close to estimate as you can always buy a Kit No. 5 to finish – this is the smallest Kit quantity you can buy.

Why Choose Deck-Max™
Some key topics come up when considering decking for a project:
These are all important and each one deserves serious consideration.
We receive many compliments on our Deck-Max™ decking and the top of the list is the customer comment “Loves the Look and Loves the finish” – this is a simple clear and brilliant outcome for us to hear from our customers.
Choice of material is as simple – choose decking it has a few key points
Colour of material is the most important
Then the colour is simply determined by the material as follows
Grey / pink colour will be Spotted Gum or Iron bark and this is the most expensive
Red / brown will be Merbau this is mid range high quality
Light brown / honey colour will be Bamboo – excellent value for product
Composite – in 2 set colours this will be the best by price
As you can see the colour you choose will equal price / budget.
Your final decision is how big your deck area is – this then sets the budget by colour and size of the deck.
Once this is established you have further considerations:
When you order normal decking it will be often irregular in size by varying width, twisted and inconsistent moisture content and often not kiln dried.
You can fix with a nail gun – and you know the outcome of that – cracked and split boards and within a year the nails will be popping out.
Even if you screw through the surface it will still crack and split.
THE OUTCOME is if you use old fashioned nails or screws into the surface the total investment is damaged by the cracking and splitting.
For best possible protection of investment is use the Deck-Max™ grooved decking as the fixing method never penetrates the board and the surface of the deck has NO visible screws or nails.
EASY to refurbish and clean and re coat.
Often forgotten is the waste allowance that builders or DIY customer forget is they allow from 10% to 15% waste this is money down the drain. Say for an average 30 sq.m. deck it is over $500.00 wasted.
With the Patented end match decking by Deck-Max™ this is a mere 2% allowance or less.
LABOUR – labour is saved because you do not need to measure and cut every piece of timber to join on a joist.
OUTCOME – less waste, fast install. The Deck-Max™ system delivers a superior product for long life and similar price to the old screw or nailed deck.
PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT by choosing this Deck-Max™ deck in these fantastic materials.
