Timber Decking Applications
DeKing offers a variety of different timber decking applications. We build high-quality commercial and residential decks for outdoor kitchens, patios and pergolas. From second-story patios to large covered outdoor kitchens, DeKing meets any need for timber decking. Our clients enjoy the quality workmanship and customised design process during construction.
Pool decking represents a big headache for many people in the Brisbane and coastal areas. In many cases, pool decks fail from exposure to constant moisture and pool chemicals. Getting the right timber decking from DeKing around your pool makes a huge difference. Timber pool decking offers a great look and can last for a long period of time if it is maintained properly.
While some of our customers enjoy oiling and sanding their timber decking, others despise the thought of working on the deck. If you don’t want to spend any time maintaining your timber pool deck, DeKing can recommend some service companies to help you maintain your deck. We also ensure that only water and rustproof screws will be used during construction. Timber pool decking can be done for unusual pool layouts, sloping blocks and above ground pools. DeKing can build a timber deck around your pool from scratch, or replace an old deck with a brand new timber pool deck.
Timber Decking Materials
DeKing provides a wide array of timber decking materials to build the deck or patio of your dreams. Each of our materials performs well in different situations. Your decision should depend on your application and your own unique style. Our most popular products are Merbau and Kwila.
Merbau is an imported hardwood from Indonesia. It offers a reeded top surface and a great density rating of 850. It performs well in many applications due to its density, toughness and durability. Many of our timber decking customers love Merbau for its deep red-brown colour.
Kwila provides an excellent alternative to pine for timber decking. Brisbane residents rely on the stability and durability of Kwila for their decks and patios. This hardwood originates in Papua New Guinea and comes in board lengths of 1.8 meters to 5.4 meters. Kwila also offers a variety of different colours from pale brown to dark red-brown.
For customers on a limited budget, DeKing is happy to provide treated cypress pine or standard pine. Although most pine products suffer from some disadvantages, they make good timber decking due to their affordability, availability and longevity. Just watch out for treated pine products in applications that cannot handle chemicals. The chemicals in treated pine can slowly leak into the surrounding area if the decking is not well maintained.
DeKing offers an assortment of different size options for all materials. A standard board width of 90mm is the most common, but we provide boards up to 140mm wide when needed. Our timber decking solutions can be built over existing concrete or tiles.
