Decking timber is for outdoor structures, such as patios, verandas, gazebos and structures around spas and pools. It must be durable in a different way to indoor timber flooring, enduring continual UV Sunlight light, occasional rain and frequent temperature changes. Though it suffers less foot traffic it also receives less maintenance and cleaning. Yet it is expected to retain its function and neat appearance.
Decking Timber Floors Perth
As it is exposed to the weather and elements all decking timber must be capable of withstanding fairly harsh conditions. Suitable materials for these outdoor situations include.
There are also composite decking options, made from recycled materials. These are particularly effective for structures exposed to ocean spray or chlorinated pools.
Floor Sanding Perth
Wooden decking will require occasional maintenance, such as stripping and re-sealing, and occasional re-sanding. This will be less frequent if the wooden structure is under shelter. Composite materials are synthetic and do require this type of work.
Outdoor Decking Structures Perth
Outdoor decking can be a structure onto itself, or an intricate addition to an existing house. These decking structures may require electrical and water pipe facilities. Appropriate design for these is not as complex as most buildings but often does require certified electricians and plumbers, and may need council approval.
