Why an Aluminum Deck Subframe is Coastal Patios’ Preferred Option

When building a deck in Queensland, selecting the right subframe material is crucial. The subframe is a critical component that ensures your outdoor living space is stable and long-lasting. While there are numerous options, Coastal Patios strongly recommends aluminium subframes for several reasons.


Aluminium is an extremely durable material that can resist harsh weather conditions and corrosion. It does not rot, crack, or warp like wood, and it is more resistant to rust than steel. This makes an aluminium subframe an ideal choice for outdoor living spaces exposed to the elements.


Aluminium is also lightweight, which makes it easier to work with during installation. The overall weight of your deck or patio will be lighter, which can be advantageous if you have weight restrictions or want to reduce the load on your foundation. A lighter subframe also makes it easier to move and transport your outdoor living space.

Low Maintenance

Aluminium is a low-maintenance material that requires minimal upkeep. Unlike wood, it does not need to be stained or sealed regularly, and it does not attract insects or pests. Aluminium is also resistant to UV rays, so it won’t fade or discolour over time. This means you can enjoy your outdoor living space without worrying about constant maintenance.


Aluminium is a sustainable material that aligns with the trend towards environmentally conscious construction and design. It is 100% recyclable, which means it can be reused without losing any of its properties. This makes it an excellent choice for your subframe and an environmentally conscious option.


Although aluminium may be more expensive than wood, it is a cost-effective option in the long run. Its durability and low maintenance requirements mean that you’ll spend less money on repairs and upkeep over time. It also has a longer lifespan than wood, which means you won’t have to replace your subframe as frequently.

In conclusion, an aluminium subframe is the best deck option for Queensland climate due to its durability, lightweight nature, low maintenance, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness. If you’re looking to build a deck or patio that will last for years, an aluminium subframe is the smart choice. Trust Coastal Patios to provide you with the best outdoor living experience possible.
