Making the right decisions on decking
Not only does a deck increase the indoor/outdoor flow of your home, it is also great for entertaining guests and enjoying the outdoors in the privacy of your own home.
Just like buying the right car there are variables to take in to account to ensure the correct decking products are selected. That is why here at Halswell Timber we like to have the opportunity to discuss your project in detail; the site situation, what climatic issues there may be, entry points off the deck, decks built around the swimming pool, the elevations, whether it is a commercial or family deck. The list goes on!
There are many factors to account for in order to ensure you have the right information and products to prevent the twisting, warping and cracking, of decks. This is where our expertise is so invaluable.
We are happy to provide a price on the materials for your deck and need to know the following: height, width, length, what surface it is going onto and which way the decking is running.
The standard timbers we have readily available for decking are Balau, Kwila, Garapa, Siberian Larch, Macrocarpa and Radiata - although others can be machined.
