English to Arabic translations [PRO] Law: Taxation & Customs
English term or phrase:deck
"The Tax Office is investigating claims for repairs which are really capital improvements, such as remodelling bathrooms and kitchens and adding a deck or pergola"
This is an Australian term, not sure of the equivalent in other parts.
The relevant reference to this in the "Macquarie" dictionary states: "an unenclosed, elevated platform or veranda, usually of wood"
As far as I know, it is not really a veranda becuase it has no roof and you usually find it in the back of houses.
In other words, functionally, it is very much like a veranda, except that people generally think of a deck as something typically made of wood, with a rustic atmosphere, and often added to the house as a later "improvement."
