Is Blackbutt Good for Decking?

Blackbutt is practically designed by Mother Nature to deliver stunning decks that stand the test of time.
Offering advanced strength and durability, blackbutt is a hardwood timber that can stand up to hot Sydney summers and windy winters without bending, breaking or moving an inch. Ideal for external and structural use, blackbutt timber is used across decking, cladding, joinery and even internal flooring – allowing you to create hybrid living spaces that mix the inside and the outside for the ultimate Sydney lifestyle.
As an added bonus, the density of blackbutt (at 900kg/cubic metre) offers protection against some of the most common blights affecting Sydney homes – bushfires and termites.
Termites are responsible for over $100 million in damages every year and are projected to affect up to 1 in 5 Australian homes. You can relax on your next blackbutt deck without worrying your exciting new space is being torn apart from the inside.
And whether you live near a bushfire prone Sydney suburb or not, blackbutt’s fire-reistant qualities mean floating embers, or an overly packed fire pit, don’t pose a threat to your deck.

Blackbutt Decking Benefits

Get Ready for an Eye-Catching Deck

Let’s talk about appearance, because all the deck specs in the world won’t convince you to update your lifestyle if the deck isn’t a visual statement.
And blackbutt decking ticks those boxes (and then some).
Blackbutt’s even texture includes a typically straight grain, lending itself to both decking and joinery in equal measure. As a native Australian tree, blackbutt decks are a striking combination of golden yellow through pale brown, with slight pinkish hues even popping up from time to time.
But don’t feel trapped by the natural tones of a blackbutt deck in Sydney. This hardwood takes well to staining, meaning you can colour your deck’s fibres in a range of stylish finishes to suit your home decor or outdoor space.

How Much Does Blackbutt Decking Cost?

As an average, blackbutt decking (86mm) costs $88/m2 before waste.
Keep in mind, this price is for the decking boards only. You’ll need to factor in the support structures under your decking boards plus installation costs which will cover your Sydney decking company’s overheads, labour and so on.
At UrbanArch Builders we understand that a new deck – and any type of home improvement project – is one that needs to be carefully considered and researched. Our deck construction team is here to add value to your home AND your lifestyle, and strive to exceed expectations at every chance.

How Long Will It Take to Install a New Blackbutt Deck

You’re already browsing outdoor furniture on the IKEA website, so a deck that takes an eternity to construct isn’t going to tick your boxes.
When it comes to a hardwood timber deck, it’s not the timber itself that impacts your construction timeline. Although certain hardwood timbers are easier to work with than others (relating to their ability to be sawed or machine cut), the deck construction process is typically broken into three distinct periods:
Phase one is the most time-consuming with council applications and decking design taking up time and energy. But once your deck has the seal of approval from your local Sydney council, construction can begin.
At UrbanArch Building we strive to complete each job to the highest standards with minimal disruption to your life and routine. With the highest quality products, materials and decking specialists, we’re proud to let our decks speak for us and endeavour to deliver an end product that meets and exceeds your vision.
