Products We Offer

Composite Decking

A popular timber alternative, Composite decking offers all the beauty of hardwood without the maintenance. The result? A low-maintenance, beautiful deck that stands the test of time.

Modern colours and textures from companies like Trex, Millboard and Azek will add an amazing new dimension to your home and transform your entertaining and outdoor living space. Just look at some of the benefits of composite decking:

  • no fading or staining
  • child and dog friendly
  • maintenance free
  • no splitting or rotting

Timber Decking

We’re proud to offer a range of options and styles, all custom-built to suit your needs and complement your lifestyle.

Affordable, elegant, and guaranteed to turn heads – that’s the timber benefit.

Choose from the mellow hues of traditional spotted gum to the more vibrant colour notes that are found in Jarrah decking. 

If you’re looking for a more maintenance-free timber option, ask us about teak or kebony options. Both provide the warmth found in real timber decking, but without the need for ongoing maintenance.

Privacy Screens

Adding a privacy screen can make a world of difference to the enjoyment of your outdoor entertaining space. From screening off a utility area so it doesn’t spoil the look of your finished deck to providing privacy to both yourself and your Sydney neighbours can bring another level of use to your balcony.

Materials can vary from maintenance-free composite castellation cladding to timber look-alike, aluminium and hardwood spotted gum timbers battens that bring warmth and colour to any setting.

Balustrades and Handrails

Frameless glass is a perfect, flawless, and contemporary look for your new balustrade project. It will give a smooth and sophisticated look and feel to your terrace or stairs. Not only does it look wonderful, but your views will also be enhanced with a clean and unobstructed view.

For a more traditional look, the Uktralox, aluminium powder coated handrail system is not only maintenance-free but looks stunning with the simplicity of its clean lines that harken back to the times when fine detail was a feature of the building industry.

Create Your Dream Outdoor Space

Beautiful, low maintenance outdoor space decking is our bread and butter. We specialise in providing decking Sydney home solutions that tick all the boxes, and when cared for correctly, will last a lifetime. Timeless outdoor decking designs that continue to elevate your outdoor space for years to come – whether it be composite or hardwood decking, privacy screens and balustrades, we work with high performance, durable materials so your new outdoor space can withstand extreme conditions often faced throughout the Sydney seasons.

  • What type of deck boards can I choose from for my Sydney decking project?

If you’re looking at building a new deck in Sydney, UrbanArch Building are the experts. We have an extensive range for you to choose from based on the look you’re after, practicality, and the climate you live in from composite decking to Trex decking boards. Here are some of our most popular types of outdoor decking boards in Sydney:

  • Trex composite  decking, available in 140 mm wide boards. Trex decking boards are the most popular decking product in Australia and the world.
  • Millboard composite decking, available 1n 176 mm and 200 mm wide boards (Enhanced, weathered and charred/emberred).
  • Azek composite decking, available in 136 mm, 140 mm and 184 mm widths.
  • Spotted gum hardwood decking (probably the most popular hardwood decking in Sydney), kiln dried and available in 86 mm and 135 mm wide boards.
  • Blackbutt hardwood decking, kiln dried and available in 64 mm, 86 mm and  135 mm wide boards.
  • Merbau – kiln dried finger jointed lengths of 5.4 metres and 4.8 metres. Its available in 42 mm, 70 mm, 90 mm and 140 mm widths.
  • Ironbark (grey and red)
  • Turpentine
  • West Australian karri
  • Jarrah
  • Teak

How long will it take to build my deck from start to finish?

The timeframe that it takes to build a new deck can vary depending on the size and complexity of the project, the location of the deck, and any preparation work that is required in order for us to commence work. For simple projects, the turnaround time may be less than a week from start to finish. For more complex decking projects, the process may take a few weeks or even months with some of the commercial-scale work that we carry out.

We recently completed a commercial deck and walkway area that was 127 metres long. It ranged from being almost at ground level to 4 metres off the ground in some places. The installation time for that project was 7 weeks.

A 90 square metre trex deck replacement that was built over 2 levels has just been completed in a little over 2 weeks.

Before we commence work, we  draft plans and provide an accurate timeframe for work (weather permitting) so that you’ll have a clear timeframe. Like anything, we can run into unexpected hurdles along the way which can change timeframes, but we’ll always make sure that you are aware of how we are progressing throughout the build.

An advantage of choosing us for your deck makover or installation is that you will have your own portal login ID that give’s you access to our programme so that you can see the progress that is being made on your project. You can feel free to ask questions or make comments directly through the portal and a staff member will immediately be notified and will be able to respond very quickly.

If you are seriously considering adding a deck to your property, some of the following considerations may effect how long your project will take to complete.

  • Does your site have good access or difficult access? The more difficult the site, the longer it will take to bring materials in and take waste away.)
  • Are your looking to have a complex design or a more straightforward design? The more complex your design, the longer it will take to install.
  • Do your materials have to be specially ordered? Some overseas materials (and Australian sourced) can take up to 6 months to arrive on site.
  • What is the size of your deck? Generally speaking, the larger the deck – the longer the installation will take.
  • Adding features to your design will generally add to the time to complete your project. Storage, bench seats and barbeque areas for instance, will all add time.

How long will my new deck last?

Our business philosophy is that we may be with you for a week or two for the initial build, but the work we do on your property will be with you forever. With that in mind, we will build your new deck with only the highest quality materials and workmanship.

Well made modern composite deck boards can be expected to last at least 25 years if properly maintained. Do a thorough check of the warranties offered by the brand that you choose, and if unsure, contact us for for some practical information that will reward you many times over.

Properly installed and maintained hardwood deck boards will last at least 25 to 30 years. Beware of shortcuts or deals that look to good to be true. There are processes that simply can’t be avoided if you want your hardwood deck to look good and last for more than a few years. Call us for a copy of our Hardwood Decking Checklist – its full of tips that can save you many thousands of dollars, not to mention aggravation and heartbreak.

And last but not least, is the substructure. Out of sight is not out of mind. This is one of the most critical aspects of the deck construction process. For quality decks it needs to be done correctly – the first time. Many of our clients are surprised at the steps that are involved in making sure that the substructure lasts and doesn’t need  thousands to dollars spent on fixing it up. We’re more than happy to provide you with the advice you need to get it right – a phone call can save you a lot of wasted time and money.

I’m not sure of the deck design I want. Can you design one for me?

Yes! We have a full design service to help you to curate the perfect outdoor living space.  We can work with you to add in all the features of your home and yard so that you can see exactly how your new deck will look when it is completed.

3D renders and a movie walk through of your new or revitalized outdoor entertaining area will really bring your vision to life and help you decide  whether the completed project will satisfy the hopes and expectations that you have before committing yourself to the project. We have found that taking the time to involve yourself in this process results in a far superior outcome that will allow you to avoid some of the problems that may otherwise happen.

Do I need to obtain a building permit for my deck in NSW?

In NSW, installing balconies, patios, decks, and verandas may not require approval if the proposal meets the relevant development standards that are set out in the State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008 (the State Policy).

Some of the key considerations that will ensure that your deck is exempt from a development proposal include:

  • The deck must be located behind the building line of any road frontage
  • The deck must not have an area of more than 25m²
  • Not have enclosing walls that are higher than 1.4-metres
  • Not have a floor height that is more than one metre above the existing ground level
  • Not be more than three metres at its highest point above the existing ground level
  • If metal is used, it must be low reflective and use pre-coloured materials
  • Decks located on bushfire prone land must be less than 5-metres from a property
  • Decks that are constructed in a heritage conservation area or a draft heritage conservation area must be located behind the building line of any road frontage.
  • In some cases, it may be necessary to contact your local council for approval if existing trees or vegetation needs to be removed for your decking project.

Our team will be able to assess your property and provide advice on any steps that need to be taken before moving forward with construction work. We will also consider important factors such as water mains, power lines, and storm drains to ensure that nothing is disrupted during the building process.

I am hearing a lot about composite decking. Is it good?

Composite decking is fast becoming a popular choice among deck builders in Sydney and their customers. If you choose the right composite board for your situation, you will achieve a really wonderful look as well as getting a deck that will give you many years of maintenance free use. Composite decking includes everything from trex decking boards, to composite outdoor decking boards made from other materials. Suitable for any outdoor living area, composite decking materials and decking boards are suitable for pool decking, and restoration. of your existing deck.

What can I add to my deck that will make it more functional?

We can add a wide range of options to your deck for you. Planter boxes are very good for extra screening and privacy. Plants will also soften the look of large deck areas. Privacy screens will give your deck a more intimate and cosy feeling. Built-in seating and storage will increase the usability of your deck. If you like to entertain you can incorporate a built-in barbecue or pizza oven. Deck lights will add that something extra to your deck that will make it sparkle. Contact us for more ideas.

Composite vs. timber decking – Which should I choose?

Choosing between real timber and composite decking is one of the hardest decisions that you’ll have to make for your new deck. So, which is right for you, and what are the pros and cons of each option? Here is a quick run-down of the difference between composite decking and timber decking and how you can choose between the two?

Pros of composite decking

  • Highly durable
  • Resistant to rot
  • Low maintenance decking
  • Doesn’t require staining or sealing

Cons of composite decking

  • Price – more expensive than timber
  • Finish – some prefer the look of natural timber

Pros of timber decking

  • Natural look and feel
  • Can be stained or painted to match your home
  • Affordable decking material

Cons of timber decking

  • Requires more maintenance
  • Does not last as long as composite decking
  • Can rot when not properly maintained or sealed

Still not sure if composite decking or timber decking is right for you? Don’t stress, our team can run you through a full cost breakdown and let you know which deck would be most suitable for your desired outcome.

Can you install decking over an existing surface?

Decking can be installed on an existing surface provided that the surface is level, and it is in good condition. Any moisture, rot, or damage to an existing surface will need to be fixed before we can move ahead with any construction.

The existing surface must be stable and be able to install the weight of the new decking. It is important to remember that decking is not designed to provide a ‘veneer’ layer to an old deck, instead, it must be constructed on a suitable surface that can safely support the weight of new materials.

How can I maintain my new deck?

Just like anything, decking maintenance is your key to longevity and ensuring that your deck stays in tip top condition over time. A Sydney home deck is prone to extreme weather conditions, which means that it is important to practise proper decking maintenance in order to maintain your investment.

As a major Sydney deck builder with years of experience, we can’t emphasise enough, the importance of regular deck maintenence to keep the pristine quality of your deck and to ensure decades of trouble free enjoyment.
If you are concerned about deck maintenance, you can take advantage of a number of services that we offer our clients.

Some of the steps that you can take to prolong the life of your deck include:

  • Sweep and blow leaves and debris off your deck as they build up
  • Clean your deck with a mild water and detergent mix or use a specialised deck cleaning solution.
  • Have your deck inspected for any rot or signs of wear so that they can be fixed before they become a bigger problem.
  • For timber decks, apply a high quality oil to protect the deck boards from moisture and UV rays.

The materials that you choose (composite vs. timber) will ultimately determine how often you need to maintain your deck. In comparison to timber decking, composite decking usually is considered low maintenance decking material. Whatever decking material you choose, composite decking or timber decking, following a maintenance plan is a sure-fire way to keep it looking its best.

If you are concerned about deck maintenance, you can take advantage of a number of services that we offer our clients.
          1) An annual inspection of your deck. One of our specialist staff members will inspect your deck and provide you with a detailed report               as well as any steps that may need to be taken to ensure the longevity of your deck.
         2) A maintenance programme that is specifically tailored to your requirements. This includes an annual inspection as well as any                           repairs, cleaning, sanding and re-oiling that may be needed. This service is best for hardwood decks.
