Other than composite decking, traditional timber decking is casted into 2 categories: Hardwood and softwood. The main difference is hardwood decking is sourced from slower growing trees, these trees are generally referred to as broadleaved trees whereas softwood is milled from a faster growing evergreen or coniferous tree. Naturally hardwood requires a more difficult manufacturing and installation process then softwood which is one of the reasons why softwood is a more popular cost-effective option.


Our softwood decking is the most cost effective and most popular choice of decking material. The softwood decking we supply and install is made from coniferous, evergreen trees such as pine and spruce, which has been sourced responsibly and is FSC certified. We source our decking from local approved suppliers which we have been working with for many years . The decking boards themselves are duel sided, upside is a smooth planed contemporary finish and the underside is a more traditional grooved finish (check out our portfolio for more photos). The decking board size is 27 x 144mm and is preservative pre-treated with Tanalith UC3.


The hardwood decking we install is Yellow Balau; It’s the most popular choice of hardwood deck due to its natural resistance to insect attack and fungal infestation. It’s a tropical hardwood that is not sourced from a single tree species, there are around 190 yellow balau sourcing trees and they are found in southeast Asia, more specifically Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. This stunning timber is golden yellow with a hint of red and brown which gradually fades into a natural beautiful silver/grey. This timber is hard, heavy, strong and requires a slightly more skilled and intensive installation process. Check our portfolio to see our recent work.


We install a range of composite decking, there are plenty of manufacturers with most requiring a similar installation process. Costs for composite decking varies drastically dependant on quality, however all composite decking is manmade and consists of a mixture of timber fibres, plastics and bonding agents. Composite boards can be more desirable as they require less maintenance, they’re also very inviting and look great. If you are interested in installing composite decking at your home, we can provide a range of help, advice and guidance on which manufacturer best suits your property, preference and budget.
