Thinking of getting a deck?

Here are some things to think about!

Make sure you choose a material that can withstand your particular climate conditions. For example, the amount of sun or shade your deck receives will determine whether the colour will fade quickly.

Whatever material you choose, your deck will need regular maintenance –Most likely once a year to keep it looking great. Some decks are easier to maintain than others. Decking materials can vary in price, from more expensive hardwoods to low-cost treated pine. There is something to suit every budget.

Types of decking material:

Modular Decking:-Modular decking is real timber boards prefabricated into panels that are fast and easy to install. Because modular decking is made of real wood, you can choose from Merbau, treated pine and more.

Composite decking

Popular brands, like Ekodeck and Modwood, offer highly weather-resistant products designed specifically for Australian weather.
