How long is the installation process?
As custom deck builders, we are able to take into account countless design variables including safety rails, storage, seats, stairs, deck lighting and many other custom features. The more complex your deck (for example intricately curved sections or a split-level deck as opposed to a rectangular design), the longer the installation and construction process will take.
Who is this type of decking suitable for?
With minimal imperfections and a naturally oily texture, spotted gum lends itself to saw and machinery work, allowing you to benefit from endless shapes and styles. And as a hardy and durable material, this material accepts oil, stain and polish to keep your deck looking brand new.
How Strong Is Spotted Gum?
Thankfully, this material doesn’t offer that problem. Rated Class 1 on the durability scale (the highest possible score) for above ground use, this deck is designed to last for 40 years with a strength and durability that can handle the wear and tear of your family.
Will My New Spotted Deck Need Oiling?
Like any other hardwood, this deck needs staining, sealing and oiling to keep it looking fresh and vivid. This doesn’t mean you’ll be spending every other weekend doing hard yakka, but knowing how to care for any type of timber is important to keep your deck’s lustre for the long-term.
