If you’re thinking of maximising your outdoor space, you need to use high-quality decking boards and create a truly outstanding design. Here at HJW Carpentry in Perth, we can help you find premium decking materials that will last for many years. We’ll help you extend your outdoor space by installing decks with the utmost care and precision. We offer a broad range of decking options including timbers, plastics, and composites that are beautiful and functional.
Modern decks are made using many different materials, each with its own advantages. We offer our customers a range of different options depending on their own situation and needs.
Wooden decks have a natural warmth. They look appealing and provide an attractive fragrance. Hardwoods like Merbau, Jarrah, and Spotted Gum are particularly popular. Whether you have a specific preference, or need some advice on what would work best in your home, we can help.
Composites contain a mix of both plastic and wood. They’re a synthetically-made but environment-friendly alternative to lumber. They’re weather and stain resistant and low in maintenance. They’re also durable and resistant to decay, but they’re more expensive than treated pines.
Plastic decking is made of reclaimed materials. It’s easy to instal and eco-friendly as well. Plastic is perfect for high-traffic areas. This type of decking contains an outer layer that protects the material from scratches and stains. It’s also UV resistant, which means it’s less prone to fading.
Each decking material has a different price and lifespan. Some materials may be better than others for use in homes located in bushfire zones. Our experienced and highly knowledgeable staff members will help you select and install the right materials.
Price and Durability
Merbau comes with a good durability rating and it’s rot and insect resistant. Spotted Gum is also widely used in Australia. It’s attractive, durable and a good choice for homes in bushfire prone areas. Like Spotted Gum, Jarrah is another good option for homes in fire-prone areas. It’s visually appealing and will last for years. At HJW Carpentry, we’re able to offer you hardwoods at incredible prices. We make sure we source only premium quality timbers that will remain in good condition for many years to come.
Treated pine is pressure treated with chemicals so it’s resistant to fungus and wood-boring bugs. It’s a good choice for decks that are exposed to sunlight for long periods of time. We have the ability to supply and install high-quality treated pine timbers, customised to suit your needs.
Composite and Plastic Decking
There are several composite and plastic decking materials to choose from. Some of them last for up to 15 years and they’re easy to clean and maintain. They replicate the look of natural timbers minus the maintenance hassles. Composite and plastic decking is manufactured from recycled wood. It has anti-slip properties and retains its colour even after years of use. Here at HJW Carpentry in Perth, we supply and install composite plastic decks in many colours.
