What do deck builders do?

Decking is installed by carpenters and deck builders 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 secured especially if it's installed around poolsides.

Deck installers may specialize in a single type of decking or a variety of decking 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 poolside. 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.

Coombs ACT 2611, Australia

I need some assistance with trimming deck board ends. I have installed the deck boards but not confident enough to do the edges. For someone with right skills it shouldn't take more 10 mins to do the job. Approx 25 boards to trim ~10cms. Need a straight line edge. I have all the necessary tools if requited. It can be done anytime.

Willy was a thorough professional. Knew exactly what he was doing. Friendly and approachable, he offered to help with stuff outside the job description. Wil be happy to take his assistance again.

Repair or replace deck joist


Scullin ACT, Australia

2nd Jan 2021

Hi, we have a spot on our Merbau deck which we walk over all the time which is feeling quite spongey ... we suspect a rotten deck joist that needs to be repaired (hopefully not replaced, as this would be a big job). Would probably involve 1) pulling up some of the deck boards (they are nailed down, so expecting some will be damaged and need replacing) 2) repairing the joist 3) replacing the deck boards. Would be good once to inspect the underside of the deck, once we have the duckboards up, to check if there is any other damage or problems. I'm writing 31 Jan, just cause Airtasker doesn't let you put "not fussed about exact date" but be good to fix as soon as practical. You will supply tools and timber required for the job - so I guess that would mean inspecting the deck beforehand to know measurements and what is required.
