Stylish & Functional Decks & Pergolas

Adding a timber deck to your existing home is a fantastic way to not only add value to your property, but will also provide you with a wonderfully versatile new space to retreat and relax, all year round.

A new timber deck and pergola is a terrific addition to any home, providing you with a custom built space to fulfil a lifestyle that many families aspire to. Adding a new deck to your house increases the habitable space of your home, and once built, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. A timber deck and pergola is the perfect place to fire up the barbeque and host family gatherings; indulge in long, lazy alfresco lunches with good friends; watch your kids or grandkids play outdoors – rail, hail or shine; or simply add a deck chair and a hot cuppa and you’ve got yourself a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

“When looking for a deck builder, we wanted someone who was professional; someone with a sense of innovation. Good design sense was important. We also wanted someone who delivered on time. We chose The Lost Art over other quotes we received because of the price, and because of Matt himself.

He was very professional in his approach. We are very happy with the finished product; absolutely delighted, no complaints whatsoever. We’re really enjoying our new deck. It’s so much better than our old rickety deck we had before!”

We first used The Lost Art of Construction several years ago when we needed some emergency repairs to our rear deck. Matt was an unknown quantity to us but very quickly impressed us with his knowledge, professionalism and approachable nature.

The completed deck repairs far exceeded our expectations so when it came time to start our recent renovations we waited until Matt and his team were available.

As renovation novices, Matt’s design suggestions quickly became our own brilliant ideas when family and friends came to admire the progress. To his credit, he never gave us away and it became a great joke.

We seriously couldn’t have been more delighted with the finished product which was not only exactly what we wanted but also on time and within budget. The attention to detail given by Matt and all of his team was in my opinion second to none.

They made it bearable to be living in our home whilst the work was being carried out, respectful of our property and tidying as best they could at the end of each day. I could not recommend The Lost Art of Construction and Matt Sullivan more highly.
