Even with a small budget it can be changed into nice and cosy space for leisure.
When starting to change this unfriendly space in to our decking of a dreams we have to start with removing old material.
Removing old wood or concrete tiles will be very easy. The substrate under old terrace should also be removed.
This sand must be condensed with compactor and use cement and sand bedding. On the top lay geotextile.
On these well prepared area for our wpc decking we put concrete blocks with a dimensions between enough for well support on joists. Depend on what kind of joist will be used it is about 30-50 cm.
On the blocks we put adjustable pedestals and adjust height of it accordingly to a demand level.
Last step is to lay joists on the pedestals and mount composite planks to the joists with a clips and screws.
