The inclusion of a deck is becoming far more popular in the construction of new properties and the renovation of existing ones among Australian home owners. A well built and placed deck is great way to extend the indoors out, and to thus enhance the existing lifestyle of any individual or family. Each decking when designed appropriately in proportion with the spaces of the existing home has its own unique presentation and feel.
There are a number of different types of decking timber manufactured to Australian Standards maintaining suitable quality, durability and stability and treated to the appropriate hazard level for the application.
Some products which would be suitable for above ground applications and in all weather conditions include:
- Spotted Gum
- Ironbark (red and grey)
- Grey Gum (not Mountain Grey Gum)
- Gympie Messmate
- White Mahogany
- Tallow wood
At Nuts & Nails we have constructed decks for many of our clients consisting of varying materials and installation methods. Upon our initial consultation we will listen to your needs and take the appropriate time to discuss the differences in durability, appearance and price among the differing materials and installation methods, as well as varying finishing options.
