In Deck Hidden Pool Cover

Ballards Carpentry balance beautiful decking design & functionality - Aussie UnderCover®

Ballards Carpentry recently installed a stunning Aussie UnderCover in a pool area refurbishment project in Kellyville, NSW.

Everybody wants a place to unwind and relax in their backyard. If you have a pool it’s the perfect place to cool down as well as entertain if you have the space.

In this project the existing pool area has been renovated with the glass pool fence repositioned and a deck added to extend the pool entertaining area, creating the perfect place to install a pergola and wonderful seating area. The deck has a multi-level offset access step area which introduces beautiful design and aesthetic interest.

The under deck Aussie UnderCover installation is very simple, quick, and the result is completely seamless, with the pool cover totally concealed in the Trex® decking and, as a bonus, the pool cover takes up no additional space, therefore it can be installed in a high traffic area, and even be covered with furniture if space is minimal.

Strategically positioned inset deck lights add further interest and, most importantly, safety and lovely ambience at night.

The peaked roof pergola and furniture finish off the area creating shelter from the sun or rain as well as a relaxing and inviting area to observe the pool.

In most decking installations, the decking boards run along the length of the Aussie UnderCover lid frame, but in this circumstance, the boards run across the lid frame to suit the deck setup. The outcome is slightly more noticeable than a lengthways installation, but the result is still outstanding.
