Modern Millboard Decking
Combining the aesthetic appeal of timber with the benefits of composite decking, this type is rising in popularity in Sydney homes. Not only are they long lasting and resistant to termites, but they’re also environmentally friendly. Oh, and no painful splinters if you venture outside without footwear.
What makes this type of deck different from other materials?
Not only is it a composite material, it’s actually more eco-friendly than other types of core and cap materials. That’s because it’s made with reclaimed and recycled materials. Rather than a wood or sawdust pressed core, millboard repurposes polyurethane materials, keeping them out of landfills.
Benefits of Installing Millboard Decking
How long is the installation process?
Are there any warranties?
When it comes to this product, you can expect it to last. Most products will come with a manufacturer warranty that covers the boards from defects for up to 25-30 years. Professional installation and appropriate care can help your deck last even longer.
Aside from what the manufacturer offers, make sure you choose an installer that backs their work with a satisfaction or workmanship warranty, too. This can help you feel even more confident that your deck is in place to last.
How much does Sydney millboard decking cost?
Millboard is a premium material.
Superior to timber as far as durability and maintenance (as we mentioned above), millboard can also be superior to plastic-based decks when it comes to design. Many homeowners are drawn to millboard decking because of the wood-look design and grain not available with other composites.
The boards are priced out in terms of square metres of material needed. So the bigger the area, the higher the cost will be. The cost of materials averages between $263 to $331/m2. Then there’s installation. Across Sydney and NSW, deck installation labor will cost between $200 to $210 per square meter.
Keep in mind that these are estimates only. A lot of variables go into pricing decks out accurately, from area to board sizes and finishes. To budget accurately, look for a provider that specialises in millboard and request a personalised quote.

Frequently Asked Questions about Sydney Millboard Decking
Will millboards get scratched by furniture or foot traffic?
Does it really require zero maintenance?
Yes, really. Of course, this deck is outside and exposed to the wonders of nature. You’ll probably want to hose it down occasionally with water just to remove any dust, dirt, or debris that finds its way on your balcony. For more low-maintenance options, consider Trex decking.
Is this type of deck fire rated?
Yes. Millboard has a rating of BAL19 for Australian Standards. That said, you’ll want to take all safety precautions (just like with any other deck) and be sure to remove any embers if they touch the surface. Also, be sure to follow all local regulations for outdoor kitchens or patio heaters.
