Timber and Composite Decking Solutions, Built by Quality & Licensed Builders
Our comprehensive decking services are fuelled by our goal to satisfy and even exceed the expectations of our clients. Today, there are two materials for decking boards that are commonly used – timber and wood-alternative or composite.
Each material possesses its own set of features that are appropriate for the requirements of a client. Your needs and style dictate whether you are into timber decking for that timeless effect or composite decking for that contemporary touch.
Timber or wood has gained popularity for outdoor decking boards as it gives your outdoor space that vintage look. Moreover it doesn’t require enhancements because it becomes more beautiful as it ages. To further broaden your options, timber wood can either be softwood or hardwood.
Each material has its own set of functionalities that may fit your decking preferences. The choice of material you make establishes not only the aesthetic aspect of your outdoor space, but also the degree of durability. Determining the features of each material will give you an overview in the selection process.
Below are some important things you need to know:
Softwood is made from fast-growing trees which make it easier to process. When it comes to design possibilities, softwood decking boards can be stained to the color of your liking making it easily adaptable to almost all decking designs.
In terms of durability and longevity, they are the least among the others in the market. However, cost-wise, softwood is the cheaper option in the market, making it a friendlier option for your budget.
As opposed to softwood, hardwood comes from slow-growing trees, making it harder to process. As for durability, hardwood is composed of a hard core and a complex structure which makes it a highly durable material.
For the aesthetic aspect of this material, it creates this warm look when installed in your garden, patio, or backyard. In terms of cost, it is pricier than softwood. Of course, you need to factor in the durability and longevity that it guarantees. Hardwood decking boards are usually made from iroko, teak, ipe and cumaru.
Made from wood fibers and recycled plastics, alternative wood or composite decking boards make an eco-friendly option for your decking needs. Composite decking boards compete well against hardwood decking boards when it comes to durability and aesthetics. This is due to the fact that it can withstand harsh outdoor elements, and that it comes in different finishes and styles.
Because composite decking boards house a mix of wood and plastics, they may not entirely have that natural wood look that hardwood has. However, when it comes to safety, it is a smart choice if you have kids and pets at home.

A pergola can be freestanding or attached to your home, therefore you will need to consider how much sun or shade you want on the patio, as this will determine the roof beam materials and the overall design and structure of the pergola.

How do you maintain your outdoor deck?
Depending on the type of decking material you have, each has its way of maintaining it. In order to be sure, follow the tips and suggestions of your deck installer or that of the decking board manufacturer.
Usually, light cleaning agents are used to avoid damaging the surface of the decking board. To be extra safe, you need to always check for any cracks and scratches on the surface. If they do exist, repair them immediately to avoid accidents and injuries.
How long does it take to complete a decking installation?
For a 15- square meter outdoor area, it may usually take 1 to 2 days to complete the project. This would be a different matter if your area has an existing installation or requires deep cleaning before installation. In such a case, you would expect more days to finish the project. Moreover, the number of people manning the installation and the equipment used can also affect the time of completion.
How long will your outdoor decking last?
The answer to this would depend heavily on the type of your decking board material. If your softwood decking board underwent proper treatment, it can last you at least 15 years. For the mod durable decking materials like hardwood, they can usually last you more than 15 years.
How much does it cost decking installation?
In Australia, the cost of decking installation will cost you between $3,400 to 6,500.
However, the cost depends on several factors such as the choice of decking material and the prevailing conditions of your outdoor space.
Opting for hardwood deck boards can significantly cost you more than softwood. The cost of the material is usually premised on the difficulty of installing the material, the durability, and longevity.
Which type of decking material is the best – composite or timber?
Composite and timber are both great choices for outdoor decks, garden decks or patio decks. Each of them, however, has its own unique set of features that distinguishes them. Hardwood, for instance, is used for its superior durability and classic look. When it comes to the cost, it is heavy on the pockets.
On the other hand, composite decking boards are more versatile when it comes to design possibilities. When it comes to the cost, it is cheaper than timber, depending on the variety of composite decking boards you choose. Composite decking boards can either be capped polymer or capped composite.
Can you install a decking yourself?
Yes, it has been done before. This is usually true in cases where removal of the pavers will cost the owner more. In constructing a decking over an installed paver, it is important that the legs of the decking are deeply and securely placed on the ground and on the paver. This is to prevent the shifting of the decking in the long run.
Which is cheaper – decking or pavers?
Paving and decking are excellent ways to improve your outdoor space. The cost of decking, however, is way cheaper. Also, decking installation is easier to do as it takes at least 1 to 2 days to finish.
