Timbers and products we recommend
Merbau Decking: An imported hardwood originally from Indonesia, Merbau is one of the most popular decking materials. Its durability and toughness make it extremely resistant to damage, while its natural deep red brown colour provides a pleasing aesthetic.
Treated Pine Decking: Pine is a soft wood, which means it is less dense than many other decking options. However, it is very economical and durable, and it takes stain exceptionally well. Its pale yellow colour lends it a more ‘rustic’ look.
Ironbark Decking: A Eucaplypt hardwood native to Australia, ironbark is highly dense and durable. Its name comes from its silvery-grey colour in the wild, which has the appearance of metal. Ironbark has a very high natural resistance to rot and to fire, which makes it increasingly popular as a decking option.
Spotted Gum Decking: Also native to Australia, spotted gum is less durable than ironbark but is still very hard wearing. It has a distinctive wavy pattern in the timber and ranges from light to dark brown in colour.
Blackbutt Decking: Blackbutt decking is a hardwood derived from New South Wales and Southern Queensland. This species of timber is pleasing to the eye with an even grain and even colour varying from golden yellow to pale brown. Blackbutt is a very dense timber with natural resistance to termites.
