Perth Decking Installation
Installing a deck has many advantages when it comes to increasing the value of your property and providing an aesthetic appeal. When it comes to decking installation, there are two main components that need to be considered, the decking material and the sub-frame. The decking material will dictate what type of sub-frame you require if it is a new deck or if you are using an old sub-frame you may be somewhat limited in your options.
Floors By Nature’s dedicated team is one of Perth’s professional decking installers which has supplied and installed flooring solutions all throughout Western Australia since 1965. With our decking installation services available throughout the region, your outdoor area can guarantee flooring stability from timber decking’s durability as well as its premium craftsmanship.
Select from our range of environmentally-friendly natural timber decking supplies. With your decking, you have two main options, to begin with, Solid Timber or Composite Decking. Solid Timber is any of your Australian Hardwood Timbers in 19mm thick pencil rounded boards. These deck planks are typically available in random lengths however some are produced in a set length. With your Solid Timber Decking, it is important to remember that you need to oil your deck every 6-9 months to prevent warping and cupping. Solid natural timber decking is perfect for owners who are looking to have more variations due to the material’s natural wood characteristics such as the knots and scruffs.
With Composite Decking there is a wide range of brands available in the market. At Floors By Nature, we mainly sell New Tech Wood and Trex Decking, however, we can also purchase other decking supplies upon request. Composite decking is typically more expensive compared to Solid Timber Decking, but no maintenance is required, you simply need to hose it down to keep it clean. Composite decking is more slip-resistant than solid natural wood and is available in a variety of colours and finishes. Additionally, the deck finish is much more consistent.
Once your decking material has been selected, we can start looking at what you require regarding your subframe. With Solid Timber Decking, you need a minimum of 250mm clearance from the top of the deck to the dirt underneath to allow for airflow. Composite Decking also requires some clearance but not as much. With most options, you need to have a joist spacing of 450mm, however with New Tech Wood’s Metro Range and some other brands that produce shorter and lighter decking boards, you will only need a joist spacing of about 350mm.

Popular Types of Outdoor Decking Materials
Some of the popular types of decking materials we sell are New Tech Wood and Trex Decking. Solid timber and composite decking are becoming more popular these days because of their environmentally-friendly materials and sustainability. To guide you with the right decking materials, here are some of the popular types of decking:
These composite decking materials mix plastic fibres and reclaimed wood fibres that have been dyed to resemble real wood. Composite decks are durable, weather resistant, and simple to maintain. With a slightly genuine wood texture, they shockingly resemble real wood but survive it by years.
Hardwoods are an excellent choice for Australian decks since they are strong, sturdy, and often have a lovely appearance, feel, and even scent. Jarrah and Spotted Gum are two of the most popular hardwoods for decking in Australia.
A cedar decking is a hardwood that resists moisture absorption, rot, decay, insect attacks, and warping and splitting. As a result, it tends to survive longer and requires less upkeep. Depending on maintenance and atmosphere, a cedar deck can last for 15-20 years or longer.
