Top Decking related questions

Do I need a permit for decking?

You should check local council regulations to find out if you need a permit for decking and if there are restrictions on the materials and size of the deck. For example, in New South Wales a permit is only needed if decking is larger than 25 square metres, but a permit is needed in Victoria if you're installing or replacing any size of deck.

Do decking contractors need to be licensed?

This depends on where you live and the cost of the decking. In New South Wales, decking over $1000 needs to be installed by a licensed builder, whereas in Victoria a registered building practitioner is required for jobs over $5000. In some states and territories, decking can be installed by a licensed carpenter.

What's the best material to use for decking?

There are pros and cons to all decking materials, depending on the look and feel you want and practical or safety considerations. Composite decking is a popular alternative to wood for pool areas, as it's easier to maintain, but some people prefer natural timber.

What decking is suitable for bushfire areas?

There are alternatives to wooden and composite decking if you live in an area at risk of fires. Fire-resistant options include aluminium, cement fibre and concrete decking. These can be designed to resemble traditional wooden decking if preferred.

How long does it take to install decking?

The time the project takes depends on its size and complexity, from a few days for a small project up to several weeks. As well as laying the decking boards, it may also include digging stump holes and installing a subfloor or concrete to support the deck.

How much does decking cost?

Decking cost varies according to the type of decking you choose, the size of the installation and other factors. Your contractor will give you an estimated quote that you can compare with other companies. The average cost of decking on Airtasker is between $150 – $500.

Do I need a specialist licence?

For certain types of tasks, you may need someone who has a specialist licence and also additional insurance. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What do decking experts do?

Decking is installed by carpenters or other tradies who know how to lay decking boards evenly and to fix them in place to make sure they stand the test of time. They'll help you achieve the design you want in your outdoor area, while also making sure your decking is safe if it's installed around poolsides.


Decking installers may specialise in a single type of decking or all materials. These include:

Hardwood timber decking

If you love the natural look of timber, nothing beats hardwood decking. Decks made from Australian hardwoods such as Jarrah, Merbau and Spotted Gum can last for many years, but they require regular maintenance to avoid weathering. The downside is that these decks can take longer to install.

Pressure-treated pine decking

Not as strong or long-lasting as hardwood, treated pine is still a popular choice for Aussie gardens that's easier and cheaper to install. If you don't like the light pine look, it can be stained any colour you want. Pressure-treated pine is protected against rot, fungi and termites, but your deck will still need to be oiled once a year.

Composite decking

Composite decks combine wood fibres with recycled plastic to offer the natural look of timber decks without the maintenance. This strong decking is resistant to moisture and fading, doesn't overheat and is slip-resistant, making it ideal for poolsides. The catch is that it generally costs more than other types of decking.

Fibre cement decking

If you live in an area at risk of bushfires, timber or composite decking may be restricted. Concrete decking made from fibre cement is an alternative that can be designed with any appearance you want in your backyard. Like composite decking, it's low maintenance and resistant to heat, moisture and pests.
