    Our Pool Decking Materials
    At Townsville Decking, we use a variety of decking materials to ensure that we meet your custom requirements. Here is a summary of our decking materials.

    • Wood
    Timber decking is commonly used because of its natural beauty and affordability. At Townsville Decking, our patio builder is familiar with different timbers, and they can construct a pool deck that fits your home. If the floor around your pool is irregular, don’t worry; our experts have vast experience in decking building, and they can install the deck off the ground. We understand that timber decking requires regular maintenance to prevent colour loss and weathering. Our patio builder can stain and repair your wooden deck to make it beautiful and durable.
    • Composite wood

    A composite deck resembles timber but doesn’t need regular maintenance. Also, it is vital to note that composite decks neither fade nor rot even if exposed to sun or water.

    The majority of homeowners prefer composite decking over other floors due to the following reasons.

    • Low maintenance

    A composite deck doesn’t require regular maintenance, and you only need soap and water to clean its surface.

    • Long-lasting
    Unlike natural timber, composite wood is durable and resistant to general wear and tears. Moreover, composite decking rarely bends, and they come with warranties of between 10 to 25 years.
    • Friendly to barefoot
    Composite decks rarely crack, and their user-friendliness can allow you to walk over them on barefoot without feeling painful.
    • Resistant to stains
    Composites are porous; hence they can resist stains and biological growths from developing on their surface.
    • Faster installation
    Unlike natural woods, composite wood comes in the right quality and design, making their installation faster.

    Verandahs and Pergolas

    At Townsville Decking Specialists we are committed to constructing high-quality verandahs and pergolas for your home. Our verandah builders have experience in the building industry for many years and highly qualified in the trade.

    As a homeowner, it is vital to understand the difference between a pergola and a verandah. Note that a verandah is a structure that is attached to your house while a pergola is a standalone building.
    All our verandahs have roofs, and their role is to improve the value of your home and provide an outdoor living space.

    Verandahs can be constructed from many materials. We use both hardwood and softwood to build your verandah. After installation, we paint or stain a verandah to make it attractive.
