decking timber choices - types of timber

Which Timber?

There are no hard and fast rules as to which timber is best for your decking...




Most modern pressure treated softwoods are extremely durable however we steer clear of cheaper softwoods which really can't stand the test of time.


Softwoods have a completely different aesthetic character to hardwoods and it really comes down to personal choice and of course budget.




Hardwoods do tend to be more expensive than softwoods but require less maintenance and also tend to last longer.

The choice of wood for your decking is daunting and in order to minimise this burden we have selected a limited selection of the best timbers for all situations and budgets.




Our decking comes in several different finishes... ribbed, grooved and smooth, depending on the look and feel that you are trying to acheive.


Below are just some of the types of timber and finish that we can supply....
