Many options for building your own deck
Hardwood decking is far from the only material choice for you. There are a variety of alternatives such as aluminium, recycled plastics or wood-plastic composites. These all provide relatively cheap options for a deck. But even with additional chemical treatment these materials cannot match the sheer durability of hardwood. Nor are they all suitable for the harsh Australian climate. If you’re looking for decks that will last decades, hardwood is with a distance the best choice. With minimal maintenance our boards last between twenty and thirty years.
Beyond just picking a material there are also other considerations to be made. Do you want the boards to be smooth or grooved? How will they be supported to form a solid construction? Any stylistic details to implement?
Choose the right kind of hardwood for decking
There are many different hardwoods available for building a beautiful deck. Each brings their own pros and cons on top of a broad range of available colours. Some can be enhanced further with a stained finish, but not all hardwoods offer this option. What type of lumber fits the planks of your deck the best? We offer several interesting options for hardwood deckbuilding, among which the ever popular Ipe.
Ipe planks are exceptionally well-tailored to deckbuilding. This type of hardwood shines when it comes to durability. It is so incredibly dense it can resist just about any environmental hazard nature can throw at it. The denseness paired with high concentrations of tannic acid within make Ipe highly resistant to rot, insects and mould. I resists scratching and can easily handle heavy use. The sheer denseness of the material also brings with it a surprising fire resistance. The fire rating of Ipe hardwood compares to that of steel or concrete. Perfect for parts of the country that are prone to brushfires.
The same denseness that makes Ipe stand out from other hardwoods can work against it too. Any screw or nail you want to put in it will need to be pre-drilled. And even with carbide-tipped bits drilling will take time. The concentrations of tannic acid mentioned before also mean you need to make sure any connected metal parts are stainless. It’s also relatively expensive, but with a lifespan easily spanning two decades it’s a worthwhile investment.
Other options we provide are Louro, Jatoba and Massaranduba. These are each roughly similar in toughness and environmental resistance, but all boast a distinct style for your deck. We import these from South America and Asia to provide you with a wide choice of the cheapest hardwood boards. Each a solid choice for hardwood decking to create a smooth transition from your house to your backyard. Whichever you choose, we do recommend that you use the same type for the flooring and the support. For more advice and help with hardwood decking, feel free to give us a call.
