Preserved Soft Wood Decks
Decks created from pressure-treated pine can last for several years if the surface is properly cared for, but no matter how often a preserved pine deck is treated, pressure treated lumber can still warp. Wood obtained from older pine is less likely to bend and distort than wood taken from younger trees. Regardless of the age of the wood it can still warp, when exposed to extreme heat, rain and general weathering. Brisbane has a tropical climate with very warm and damp conditions throughout much of the year making wood decking increasingly less popular. Wood decking may not be suitable for Brisbane homes especially if the deck is to be uncovered.

Hard Wood Decks
Hard wood decking material is a fantastic option for those people who can afford the luxury this decking material gives. Hardwood still needs to be treated but is much more durable than pine and other soft woods. Hardwood is expensive and often imported due to deforestation restrictions.

Timber Hybrid Decks
Wood composite is often used for decking timber; this is a combination of wood fiber and plastic. This material is gaining in popularity as it is very durable and has a similar texture to real wood, the synthetic component makes this material really simple to clean and it will not absorb any moisture. It is an attractive material that should not warp or split. Despite the fact that timber composite decking is a lot more costly than pressure-treated wood, it’s well worth the cost. Timber composite deck materials last longer than timber. Assuming wood composite decking material is something you can afford, it is an outstanding option for any outside area.

Vinyl Decks
The look and feel of vinyl is similar to wood. Vinyl decking is trouble free and easy to own, it can handle a lot of abuse and is a great choice for families with children. Vinyl deck material is easy to mop, and it’s available in many textures and colours. People often choose Vinyl because it does not get hot to the touch under the sun, making this a particularly good choice for home owners in hot climates.
