So, What Is Decking?
Decking is a level of ground which typically is constructed using various woods or other composite materials. It is generally elevated from the ground level and is constructed using long strips of hard materials to create a weight supporting floor space. Decking is usually installed to outside areas of the home and can be incorporated into spaces surrounding pool areas, alfresco areas, front gardens, verandas and more.

How Do I Choose A Decking Material That Is Right For Me?
It can be difficult to choose a decking material, especially if you’re not familiar with the different types of materials that can be used. We can help you to choose a decking material that is right for you, your budget and your home. We are experts when it comes to different types of wood and composite materials, so we can talk you through all of the different benefits of each product and help you to decide on a surface which complements your home.
We use three different types of hardwoods – Merbau, Spotted Gum and Jarrah. These woods are sophisticated, long-lasting and incorporate nature into your landscape. Although we prefer to build decking using our hard-wood solutions we understand that this doesn’t always suit everyone, so we can also source composite decking materials at the request of our clients.
What Types Of Decking Materials Do You Use?
Merbau – Merbau is an excellent material used for decking and outdoor construction. It has great durability and strength characteristics. Merbau contains a high level of oil within the wood which protects it from splitting or cracking over time. It is very low maintenance making it an optimal choice for use in outdoor decking. Merbau is a magnificent darkish red/ brown colour which complements homes brilliantly.
Spotted Gum – A naturally oily wood, spotted gum is great to work with especially in outdoor applications. It is an Australian timber which can be easily sourced. This timber is naturally very resistant to fire, wood-rot and termites. With the highest rating on the durability scale, you can be sure that your spotted gum decking will last the test of time while adding an excellent finish to your home.
Jarrah – Jarrah has been used in the construction of flooring, decking and furniture for many years and is still widely used to this day. Its durability and resistance to the elements makes it ideal for use outdoors and indoors. Its unique colour and grain is a beautiful accent to your home. Jarrah easily accepts oils and maintenance and can be looked after relatively easily.
Hardwoods have been used as a construction material for hundreds of years. Many of the structures constructed from hardwoods many years ago still stand today which is truly a testament to the durability of this material. We absolutely love constructing and installing decking and bench structures into homes and businesses and believe that the finish it provides is second to none.
