The following timber types are commonly used for timber decking in Melbourne:
- Merbau is often used for outdoor decking as it’s a very dense and durable wood while being fairly affordable for its quality. Natural oils make it resistant to pest damage and rotting, while being relatively affordable to most. This wood is also beautiful to look at, with its reddish-orange to reddish-brown colour, gold or yellow flecking and natural lustre.
- Technically a softwood, cypress is unique in that it has many attributes of a hardwood, being durable and resistant to termite attacks. It also has a naturally knotty appearance which gives it a rustic look.
- Treated Pine
Treated pine is pine wood that’s been chemically treated for resistance to decay, fungi and insect damage, including termites. It’s a lightweight wood that’s easy to work with, making it ideal for DIY projects where something simpler and more straightforward is desired.
