More about our Services

Composite Decking

Composite (wood plastic composite) is a material created from a blend of timber wood and thermoplastic. The material is environment friendly because the wood component is generally made completely recycled fibres.

Although, this solution is by no means new, it is quickly growing to become an industry standard for decking solutions.

Composite decking offers a natural look and feel to traditional hard wood alternative but comes with many added benefits. The primary benefit being that there is minimal maintenance required once the deck has been built.

Timber Decking

Timber decking has been a classic decking solution since the beginning of time. They are much more durable than softwoods such as treated pine. Timber comes in many variations and each offer a unique aesthetic. 

Hardwoods we offer:

  • Merbau Decking
  • Spotted Gum
  • Cyprus Decking

Pergolas are a great addition to any backyard. They offer a great outdoor space to hold gatherings with friends and family. Transform your backyard into a visually appealing living space by adding a pergola.

Frequently Asked Questions

It can be overwhelming the number of decking solutions available. Firstly you need to know which decking solution you would like to go with, timber or composite. Timber requires yearly oiling maintenance which is a turn off for most, whereas composite has minimal upkeep.

From there, we suggest you do your research on which decking you prefer – visit our service pages to view our timber and wood plastic composite options.

This is a very common question – we know you don’t want to hear it, but it really depends. Fortunately, there are ways to get a pretty good estimate. Jobs are charged per square metre of the chosen material (Timber or Composite) – the materials can range from $120 to $250 per square metre. Next you need to figure out the size of the area and multiply by the expected cost per square metre. Overall, jobs typically fall in the range of $1000-$2000.

Decking maintenance is essential to prolonging the lifespan of your timber deck. If neglected, you may notice your deck starting to splinter, or even worse, rotting. If the splintering is confined to an area, you could probably sand it down, but rotting will require a full deck replacement.

So now let’s talk decking maintenance. Deck maintenance is an essential task for any hardwood owner. It typically consists of cleaning, oiling and repairing the deck and it needs to be performed annually. The worst part is, it is not a one-day process, and you better hope there is not any rain because it could ruin the coat of your oil. If you want to learn about the maintenance process, click here.

In terms of cost, the average cost of a bi-annual clean for a 25m2 is $375. Natural timber does have its benefits, but it is a very expensive option. If you do not want to deal with any of this, we would definitely recommend using composite decking.
