Bushfire Zone Home Extension in Sydney's North
Flame zone builder for home extensions, additions & renovations across Sydney & Newcastle.
By: Elite Additions
THE CLIENT BRIEF
Our client was a young, growing family needing more space without the hassle of relocating. More space for mum and dad to easily entertain guests & an additional space for the kids to use when home from school.
They wanted an outdoor retreat where they can feel like they can properly escape from the hustle & bustle of city living.
Our client first came to us with an idea of creating more internal space for their current home. The plan was to use efficient design practices to make valuable use of space by adding a master bedroom by expanding the upper level of the home and remodelling the downstairs parts of the dwelling.
An additional area focused around relaxing/entertaining guests in an outdoor alfresco/dining space which overlooks the local bushland.
CHALLENGES OF THE PROJECT
The home improvements needed to be BAL Flame Zone certified and we needed to use smart design & materials before the DA could be approved.
It probably goes without saying but non-traditional materials are considerably more expensive than your more affordable, standard timber materials. Fortunately for us, our clients were amazing and gave the more expensive decking product the go-ahead!
OUR ELITE SOLUTIONS OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGES
After doing some extensive research, we discovered a specific aluminium decking alternative which seemed to be the perfect flame-zone solution for our clients' project.
We can confirm that some of the benefits we found were that this product was quality to the touch and really easy to install. It quite literally looks and feels like a hardwood deck which we found probably the most surprising thing. The installation was easy and simple and NexGEN were a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process.
It's hard to believe but the product itself looks and feels like proper hardwood. Our clients absolutely love the look & feel of the aluminium decking. The added benefits of it being slip, stain and mould resistant made it a no-brainer to go with as a long-term solution for the deck.
