Factors influencing the price in Sydney include:

  • Your choice of hardwood timber: Popular hardwood options include merbau, jarrah, stringybark, ironbark spotted gum, and more.
  • Additional features: Extra features like stairs, screening or built-in seating will increase the enjoyment you get from your deck as well as your investment in your home.
P.S You’ll need to factor in the cost of buying drinks and the odd cheese board for all the gatherings you’ll host. With your own inviting timber deck, your house will soon be “the” place to be.

Frequently Asked Questions About Timber Decking In Sydney

Does this material rot?

Timber is a natural resource, so can be susceptible to rot if not properly treated and maintained. Deck that’s been pretreated, or the one that’s annually oiled and stained can help keep it looking brand new year after year.

How do I maintain a timber deck?

Exposure to the Aussie elements can cause wear and tear. Maintaining your deck should be carried out annually, and include general washing and cleaning, as well as sealing to prevent cracking, warping or splitting.

What is the cheapest hardwood?

Hardwood costs can reflect their source, with certain timbers easier to acquire. As an example, some hardwood is available for as little as $50/m2 while others can exceed $100/m2. Contact our team for detailed pricing to suit your budget.

Will my deck attract termites?

Termites attack 1 out of 5 Aussie homes, so it’s important to consider whether your choice of hardwood timber is termite-resistant or not. Popular termite-resistant hardwoods include: jarrah, blackbutt, ironbark, stringybark, and spotted gum.
