Before you start sanding, painting, staining, or sealing it — again — consider re-boarding your deck with TimberTech. You can enjoy our beautiful, low-maintenance decking and railing without starting from scratch. Taking advantage of a sound, existing wood substructure is usually more simple and affordable than building a new deck from the ground up. Various timber decking removal tools, which are widely available, make it easier than ever to remove existing decking and railings. garden decking board

Available in two collections - Natural Collection which features three colours - Slate, Brick and Brownstone, and the Tropical Collection - which features three warm, rich colours and two profiles. Choose from Tropical Rosewood, Tropical Teak and Tropical Walnut.

The use of a balustrade is an important safety feature for a new timber deck. Legally, any deck with a height to the below surface (normally natural ground level) of more than 1 metre requires a balustrade to be built or installed. There are many different designs for balustrading. Traditionally timber is mainly used as this is a cost effective method and also suits period type homes. For a modern appearance the use of stainless steel wire and glass has become very popular, however, a glass balustrade can be an expensive option for your timber deck. Outdoor Timber decking

Depending on the elevation of your timber deck to natural ground level you may need timber stairs to gain access from your new deck to your backyard. We generally have two methods of building stairs. One is to use timber stringers and open treads. The other is to design and build timber framing with decking boards installed over the top to blend in with the rest of your deck. The flexibility of a timber deck means that when building on sloping land it's possible to step the deck to suit the contours of your land.

When entertaining your family or friends on a warm Melbourne night it's important to make sure your outdoor entertainment area is safe for socialising. There are many different lighting fixtures and fittings that can be used to suit your timber deck including flush mount lighting for stairs and steps. We recommend using quality stainless steel light fittings when subjected to the outdoor conditions like rain and direct sunlight. Soft mood lighting is a great way to give your new timber deck a tropical feel at night.

We want you to enjoy your new timber deck for many years to come, with that in mind we only recommend and use of the best materials available to build your decking. We typically use Treated Pine (treated to H4 and above) or Cypress Pine (has natural in ground durability) for all posts and stumps in ground. Treated Pine is also used for all framing, like joists and bearers, as it has been treated to resist weather rot and insect infestation. Generally we build using Merbau decking boards due to their availability and excellent durability It is an attractive timber, reddish-brown in appearance, and makes for a stunning looking deck that will stand the test of time. Other popular hardwoods we can use to build your timber deck are Spotted Gum, Ironbark, Blackbutt, Jarrah and Yellow Stringybark. These are all popular Australian native timbers with their own distinctive characteristics like grain structure and color.

We recommend you to coat your deck at least twice when your timber deck is new, however you should read the instructions the manufacturer has printed on their products for further details. All timber decks should receive regular oiling to maintain their natural beauty, we would advise this should be done every 12 months or so to help keep your deck protected from the elements like uv rays and moisture, if your Timber deck is in a severe environment you may need to oil it more frequently than once a year. composite Porch Flooring
