We provide a wide range of Timber Wooden Decking Services including Deck Timbers ranging from Natural Woodens (Merbau, Chengal, Ironwood) to Composite Woodens. We carry an array of quality materials to suit all types and budgets, including composite decking boards and hardwood boards. We provide a traditional softwood deck, hardwood or composite decking. Wood-like or composite decking is another option that we can install, which is completely waterproof and resistant to rot.
In fact, the most common decking installation project is replacing the current wooden deck with a composite. If you are expanding an existing deck, or just repainting the deck, chances are that your existing foundation is available. Working with a TimberTech-registered contractor will make sure that your deck construction is done correctly, regardless of whether you are building new structures, expanding decks, or using existing substructure.
While professional installation will increase the price of wood decks, in some areas it may be required by local building codes, depending on how complex your structure is. Tasker can assist in all aspects of wood decking, from the procurement of the deck materials, through the construction of the deck. Deck construction and maintenance can be done by anyone with the proper knowledge, provided that they possess all of the tools needed to complete a well-done job. Depending on the size of your project, and your own skill set, you can probably DIY your construction.
The best practices for installing your deck boards will differ a bit depending on your deck materials and your choice of fasteners. Installers will have to take into account wood species, wood moisture content, climate conditions, and local expertise when determining spacing of wood deck boards. Hardwood wood decking boards will retain their look and shape over an extended period if covered with the roof.
If a decking area cannot be covered, then narrower decking boards are a good option to consider, since these will be more likely to wick away water, thus being less susceptible to warping. Use can also help minimise wasted space on decking, as well as creating uniform gaps between neighboring deck boards. Since this larger deck is also an install with hidden fasteners, this step is also, and it is worth noting, more critical in helping to minimize the bending of deck boards over time. Pre-finishing is a crucial, yet sometimes overlooked, step of building hardwood decks.
Power-washing, replacing broken or damaged boards, raising planters above deck surfaces, and other types of maintenance are important, but perhaps the single most important thing you can do is to scuff up your deck at least a few times a week. While your deck is being cleaned, you may want to hire garden cleaning services to remove the yard trash in the meantime. Once you get your deck repaired, a tasker may even be able to help install that new wicker lawn chair or lawn bench that you have been meaning to add to your yard. An outdoor deck made of hardwood wood can make for an excellent entertainment space, and it willlast a homeowner many years, provided that the deck is designed and installed properly, and that routine maintenance is performed.
Timber decking has a tendency to rot over time as it is made from natural wood, however, it is possible to extend the life of the deck by regularly maintaining it and repainting for re-protection. The durability that a hardwood deck has for a long time makes it essential that it is installed correctly, so that it can be a long-term pleasure sanctuary. Building a hardwood deck is a natural, beautiful, and long-term investment in your lifestyle.
A wood deck extends a home’s living space, creating opportunities for entertaining where there were not previously, adding a bottom-line market value to a property, and can serve as the connection between the interior of the house and other exterior features, such as the swimming pool or outdoor kitchen. A deck is an attached outdoor floor on your house, made from wood or wood-like materials, that provides a raised surface for your outdoor space. A patio, a porch, pool area, balcony, or any outdoor or semi-outdoor space can be easily beautified by a handsomely finished wooden deck that can give the structure an extravagant appearance. Larger buildings could even feature decks at an elevated level of a building that can be opened up to the public, either as an observation deck or for vegetation.
Residential decks can be built over steep areas or uneven terrain which is not otherwise usable. In architecture, a deck is a flat surface capable of supporting weight, like a floor, but usually constructed outside, usually elevated off the ground, and typically attached to a building.
Timber decking is a type of building material used for the construction of decks and patios. This material can be manufactured using a wide range of species of hardwoods and softwoods, depending upon the desired look and properties of the final structure. Timber decking gives outdoor structures a natural, rustic appearance, which cannot be achieved using metal or composite materials.
The best options are TimberTech Cap Polymer decking and Cap Composite decking, which offer the same authentic wood appearance that you like, and they also share some of the same installation best practices that timber does. The best lumber for building decks is cedar, redwood, and any kind of pressure-treated wood, including pine. Depending on your backyard space, your deck, or your roof, we will provide and install the wood decking that is the best fit.
