Timber Decking Process

How it Works

Initial consultation:

We’ll kick things off with a consultation to discuss your desired deck size, location, preferred material, and any special features you’ve got saved on your Pinterest board.

Site measurement & assessment:

We’ll then take measurements of the area where the deck will be built, assess the space, and identify any potential challenges or opportunities.

Design presentation & revisions:

From there, we’ll prepare a design that incorporates everything you’ve asked for, in the space on your property. We’ll then make the necessary adjustments in line with your suggestions or revisions.

Permit application:

Once we’re all signed off and happy with the design, where required, we will apply for any permits to ensure that we’re ticking all of the local legislation boxes.


Time to get the ball rolling on your new deck! Depending on the scope of the project, we’ll aim to get your deck built in a quick turn-around, so you can enjoy it sooner rather than later. However, that does not mean cutting corners – we’ll make sure that your deck is installed with careful and diligent precision.

Benefits of Timber Decking

Timber decking is one of the most popular decking materials for homeowners that are looking to enhance their outdoor living space. A timber deck provides a timeless, classic look that can complement just about any outdoor living space while also providing a comfortable and relaxing place to relax, entertain, and enjoy Sydney’s incredible year-round weather.

Some of the reasons that our Sydney clients opt for timber decks include:

Custom Design Icon

Timber decks are made to last. From the long summer nights relaxing outside to the BBQs and general wear and tear that come with family life, timber decking is made to withstand heavy foot traffic. When you opt for high-quality timber, you’ll also enjoy added resistance to insects, decay, and rot – which means you can enjoy a low-maintenance deck that looks great and stands the test of time.


Timber is amongst the most versatile decking materials on the market. From colours, finishes, and materials, we can customise the look and feel of your deck to suit your home or outdoor living space. Whether you’re looking for something traditional or something more modern, timber ticks all of these boxes.


Timber decking is one of Australia’s most popular decking materials for one reason – because it looks great. Timber is a natural, stunning addition to any outdoor living space. Unlike other decks, which can feel cold and uninviting, timber feels more like an extension to your home, inviting guests to make the most of the outdoor living area.  

Competitive Pricing Icon

Timber decking isn’t only cost-effective – it can also be an excellent investment for your property. A thoughtfully designed timber deck can increase the appeal of a property by extending the usability of outdoor spaces and improving the functionality of your home. Whether you’re doing it for value or liveability, a timber deck is an excellent addition to any home. 


Timber is a sustainable, regenerative material, meaning you can feel good about your choices for your deck. Our timber materials are sourced from sustainability-managed forests and suppliers to help you reduce your environmental impact and support sustainable forestry practices.

Timber Decking Sydney FAQs

Timber vs. composite – which is right for me?

It’s the million-dollar question!

Timber vs. composite decking is the natural choice for most people choosing between decking materials in Sydney. We have written a complete guide to the pros and cons of composite vs. timber, but here are some of the key differences, pros, and cons of the different materials:

Timber Decking Pros:

  • Natural, warm appearance

  • Versatile colour and customisation
  • Durable

  • Requires regular maintenance.
  • It can be susceptible to wear in extreme weather without proper care.
  • Will wear faster than composite decking

How do you clean a timber deck?

Taking care of your timber deck does require some cleaning and consistent maintenance to keep it looking its best. To get the most out of your deck, extend its lifespan, and prevent premature aging, we recommend following a consistent cleaning routine that includes the following:

  1. Sweeping
  2. Apply cleaning solution
  3. Scrub the deck with a broom & solution
  4. Rinse the deck
  5. Let the deck dry

To get your deck looking its best, we recommend cleaning it at least once every six months or as required by the local conditions. Regular maintenance can help prolong the lifespan and ensure you can enjoy your deck and make the most of your outdoor space.

How long will it take to build my deck?

Deck building timelines in Sydney will depend on whether we require a permit and the type of deck you’re looking to build.

Council approval is not required If your board is less than 1 metre high off the ground and is less than 25 sq metres in size. If your project fits these specifications, you could expect your deck to be designed and installed within about six weeks from the initial consultation.

If your project needs council approval, you could expect the installation of your deck to commence 6 to 8 weeks from your initial consultation.

Do you offer custom decks?

Absolutely. Treating each project as if it were on our own property, we specialise in custom designs constructed from high-quality timber materials. We know that timber specs and hardwood samples are excellent, but partnering with a building team who understands your vision is most important.
