As one of the leading timber decking suppliers in Brisbane, we have amassed a lot of knowledge and experience over the years. We get a lot of questions about timber decks: what timbers to select and why, uses for timber decks, etc. We would like to provide some information for you about why timber decks are so great and why hardwoods are the best building materials.
Benefits and Uses of Timber Decking in Brisbane
Timber decking is a great way to increase your living area without having to build an addition to your house. In the Brisbane climate, you will have a lot of opportunities to use your timber deck for BBQ, enjoying your favourite beverages, entertaining guests or just relaxing in the fresh air.
A well-made, well-maintained timber deck increases the value of your home. It can also help you make better use of land that is on an incline.
Why Hardwoods Make the Best Timber Decking
Hardwoods provide you with the “best of both worlds.” They provide the best structure because hardwoods are strong and durable. They also provide wonderful aesthetics because of their unique and varied appearances. Each hardwood has its own “look”: its own character, texture, grain and colour.
Many indigenous hardwoods also provide natural protection against bushfires and termites. Our favourite hardwood that “checks all the boxes” is Merbau, also called “Kwila.” We carry Merbau, Blackbutt and Pacific Jarrah. We also carry Standard or Mixed Australian Hardwoods in two different grades.
Besides the benefits listed above, hardwoods are easy to maintain. They are also less likely to sustain scratches and other marks. They can be sanded down and resealed when necessary because they don’t require staining to provide a great natural appearance.
