Get inspired to start your decking project.
Decks are a synonym for outdoor living in Australia. Decking is also a popular option for patios, pergolas and pool surroundings, as well as balconies and verandahs. When it comes to decking options, especially regarding the choice of hardwood, Merbau decking is a top choice with homeowners for many reasons.
Browse photos by our clients for more thoughts before you begin constructing a deck. You may want to employ a landscaper to assist you to finish your project once you're prepared, or you may be able to schedule a DIY decking project.
Decks can be tailored to suit your home and landscape, so be open to a range of designs. And you don't have to be a carpenter to build a deck-you need a few power tools, a basic tool kit, and some woodworking skills, so you can do the work yourself in most instances. Just make sure all your measurements are carefully planned and checked, both during the planning phase and as you construct. The second couple of hands is also going to be helpful or you might need expert advice to help you kickstart your decking project.
What hardwood decking should I use?
Your selection of hardwood decking will dictate price, appearance and general maintenance. All popular hardwood varieties in Australia are spotted gum, teak, blackbutt, grey ironbark, jarrah, and merbau. Merbau decking is one of the most attractive decking materials. If you’re after a red-colored hardwood, consider merbau, which can handle the harsh Australian climate. Avoid installing close to brickwork, above light colored paving as the tannin leaked is probable to cause continuous staining especially if left to dry out. Teak is also the best performing hardwood.
