Decking Albert Park

Building a new deck, or repairing an old one?  M J Harris Carpentry should be your first port of call.

When building a deck, we never take any shortcuts.  All joists and bearers are treated and primed to ensure that they will be solid and stable for years to come.

We take the time to select the best cuts of timber to give your deck the best look possible.

Once the construction of the deck is complete, then we wash and prepare it for coating.  But sometimes a deck needs to be left for several weeks before it’s coated.


Merbau, and some other hard wood timbers are rich in tannin, a dark sap that will bleed from the timber each time it rains.  We take steps to remove most of this tannin, but it still needs time to bleed out naturally, usually several weeks.

Then we will put the protective coatings onto your deck and give it the final treatment so you can enjoy your new deck with nothing more to worry about.

If you want your deck to stay looking pristine for years to come, contact M J Harris Painting and discuss a maintenance schedule with them.
