Advice: make a layout plan
Before starting your terrace project, it is essential to think about it and put it on paper. Indeed, the layout plan will greatly help you to install your terrace and mainly to optimize your budget. How? It's simple, the layout plan is a sketch, to scale your terrace. It resumes its shape, its dimensions and the useful material for the construction of your wooden terrace on pedestal.
Therefore, lay out your first row of pedestals on paper, spaced every 50 cm. Back up 70 cm and go to the second row. And so on to the end of your wooden deck. Once the joist pedestals have been represented, place the joists then the wooden boards. You would have understood, thanks to the layout plan, you buy the equipment you really need. Even better, you save time during installation.
Preparing the ground is a mandatory step. Why ? Quite simply to protect your wooden deck on pedestal from the passage of time and weather conditions (drought, heavy rain) that could cause it to move.
By stabilizing your ground, you guarantee your construction a stable and durable surface. In addition, this ground preparation is very simple! No major earthworks but a few hours of work and crushed gravel. A simple and economical preparation in short! Here is the proof :
- Dig 15 cm deep over the entire surface of your future terrace;
- Place a geotextile felt over the entire surface to prevent the growth of weeds between the wooden boards;
- Cover with crushed gravel;
- Compact everything to obtain a flat and loose surface;
- Check the flatness of the surface with a spirit level.
Note, if your surface is stable and level like an old terrace or a concrete screed, skip this step and go directly to laying the wooden terrace pedestals.
