Radiata Pine takes stain or paint well, so you can make your deck any colour you like.
It’s grown to become one of the most popular decking timbers because it is one of the least expensive options and can make a great looking deck.
The “H” (Hazard) rating will tell you if its suitable for outdoor use and if posts can come in contact with the ground, we can help you choose the “H” rating for your decking, joists, posts & other components.

Spotted gum, like jarrah and blackbutt, is a good choice for bushfire prone areas.
It has a durability rating of 2, which makes it a good timber for decking. Spotted gum is often plantation grown in Australia, making it a good choice from an environmental standpoint.
It has greater colour variations than blackbutt, ranging from a pale brown to chocolate brown. Spotted gum is a dense timber that shrinks very little compared with other timbers. It has low tannin content, so doesn’t “bleed” like some native timbers do.

Blackbutt is another highly fire resistant timber.
An Australian native, blackbutt has a lovely pale brown colour and unlike some other native species, the colour is fairly consistent.
Blackbutt can be stained if desired. It can check (crack) if left unsealed, so should be sealed as soon as possible and resealed periodically.

Merbau has a high durability rating of 2 and is rot and insect resistant.
In the past, merbau was one of the most popular decking timbers and was even used to build house frames. It is still a popular decking timber and is less expensive than most other decking timbers.
Much of the merbau used comes from Southeast Asian rainforests. Look for sustainably harvested merbau, costs a little more, but it sends the message that we care about the environment.

This wood has natural oils in the bark that give it its vibrant colour.
The yellow balau wood properties are ideal for both indoor and outdoor use because it is resistant to rot, decay, insects, fungus, and water damage.
The colour can range from light brown to dark brown with darker streaks throughout the timber. It also resists warping when exposed to high levels of humidity or dry air conditions.
