Building a deck with Bangkirai is done similar to most other hardwoods. The boards are screwed onto an underlying frame of beams held up by posts. We do recommend you pre-drill the screw holes since it is such a tough material. This will make adding the boards to your deck much easier and minimizes the chances of cracks or splitting.
