The Hardwoods

Hardwoods are one of the most feasible and hence, popular options for decking in Brisbane, like anywhere else in Australia. This particular variety is extremely durable and resilient and comes with a great look and feel, and they even smell amazing, emitting that customary aroma of timber. The most popular hardwoods in Australia include Spotted Gum, Merbau, and Jarrah. Of them, Merbau is the most common timer in Australia. 

The hardwood variety will lend a stylish look and feel to your home and will make the outdoor space aesthetically richer. 

Treated Pine

This is another extremely popular choice used for timber decking in Brisbane, as in any other part of Australia. In fact, it is considered the most versatile as well as affordable timber decking option available down under. Treated pine is actually Radiata Pine, which is pressure-treated to make it as stubborn as it can be, to brave decay, termites and fungi.  Well, it may not be visually as enticing as the hardwoods, but you have the option to paint treat, or stain it to make it look the way you want.  Moreover, treated pine is lighter than other varieties and thus, is easier to work with. 

Composite Decking

This variety is a mix of recycled plastic and wood fibres. It is an extremely easy-to-install and an environmentally friendly alternative to the natural timbers and is a pretty popular choice for decking like elsewhere in Australia. There are popular brands that offer highly weather-resistant composite decking varieties, which are specifically designed and developed for the backyards of Australian households. This variety comes with a wide array of timber-looks like Silver Gum, Jarrah, Highland Oak, and the likes. 

Modular Decking

At times, real timber boards are prefabricated into panels, which are then sized and installed to form the decking. This is called a modular decking. As real wood is used in modular decking, you have the option of choosing from treated pine, Merbau, and many more. This is a popular choice in Australia as it is pretty easy to install, even if the surface is uneven. The deck kit comes with pre-assembled sub-frames along with pre-designed decking board panels that can simply be attached. 

So you see, there are so many options to choose from when you opt for decking in Brisbane as in other parts of Australia. All you need to do is to get in touch with BB Decking at 0434554470 with your choice. Our experts will do the rest.
