Decking provides a comfortable, clean, level environment on which you can entertain guests or kick back and relax. A timber deck adds a natural feel to your home and finishes it up. Decking allows you to create a space where previously there was none, building over a sloping site or adding a new balcony can create more space instantly.
The substructure of Softwoods decks is usually CCA treated pine. We find that CCA treated pine provides little to no movement, is resistant to rot and insect attack, and is also the most economical option. Bearers are bolted to posts, and joists are secured to bearers using a range of bolts ,nuts and screws. All of these measures have been developed over the years to ensure that a deck is built to last.
TYPES OF DECKING
The primary variable aside from size and shape of decks is the type of decking that you use. Decking comes in many different species, offering variable strength, size and flexibility, as well as color, grain and density. With these variables come different prices and performance. Softwoods provide a large range of decking options to ensure that we can provide you with what you want in a deck at a price that suits you.
