Top Timber Decking related questions

Timber decking is a construction material used for outdoor decks and patios. This material ranges from hard to softwood species. The type of timber you use will depend on your preferred aesthetic and intended purpose.

Planning regulations apply to some situations. For example, you may need consent before building a deck if your platform is higher than 300 mm (~1 ft) from the ground. Decks that are within 20 metres of highway located in a conservation area will also require planning permission. 


What’s more, you may need planning permission if your deck would affect the privacy of neighbouring properties. Please contact your local authority for updated regulations in your specific situation.

The best types of timber for decking include European Oak, Thermowood, Siberian Larch, Iroko, and Balau. In general, timber for decking should have qualities that will give it a service life of at least 15 years. Essentially, timber decking should be durable and rot-resistant. A qualified Tasker can advise you on suitable timber materials, as well as collect the materials from the home improvement store.

Timber decking should have qualities that make it suitable for outdoor use. These qualities include high durability and resistance to sunlight (UV), water, and rot. Timber species vary in appearance, durability level, water resistance, and price per square metre. 


Your choice of timber will depend on your budget and purpose. For example, pool decking would require timber with good water damage resistance. Meanwhile, an outdoor area for kids and pets would require durable hardwood.

Timber decking can last for 15 to 30 years. But the lifespan of timber decking will depend on several factors. Using the correct type of timber for your specific application is one way to ensure your decking's longevity. Keep in mind that timber is pressure treated for different uses. Proper installation and regular cleaning are also essential to preserving timber decking.

Regular cleaning and proper maintenance prolong the lifespan of timber decking. Use a mild detergent diluted with water to clean timber decking, as other cleaning agents are too harsh for timber. You should also avoid painting your deck because timber decks don’t respond well to paint. Instead, you can stain your timber deck to revive its natural colours and create water repellency. Furthermore, repairing any damage as soon as it arises can benefit the lifespan of your timber decking.

What do timber decking services include?

Taskers can help with every aspect of timber decking, from sourcing the decking material to building the deck. Timber decking specialists may also clean or treat timber decks for the upkeep of the structure.

 

From gardens to rooftops, timber decking can add a warm natural touch to any residential or commercial space. You can request the following timber decking services on Airtasker. 

 

Timber decking installation 

Timber decking can turn an unusable area into a space for socialising or al fresco dining. What’s more, timber decking adds a soft and calm look to any outdoor space – be it a garden, terrace, or rooftop. 

 

Your timber decking fitter can help plan and build your deck. They can also install additional components, such as handrails, balustrades, and newel posts. Simultaneously, you may opt to hire a landscape architect to design your entire outdoor space. Our platform can also connect you with gardeners and tree surgeons who can build your flower beds or trim your overgrown trees. This way, you could have the garden of your dreams. 

 

Timber decking cleaning 

Well-designed timber decking requires minimal maintenance every year. However, decking also needs cleaning from time to time to maintain its beautiful appearance. Your Tasker can clean your deck by brushing the surface with a stiff bristle brush. Brushing the decks can remove dirt, algae, and dead leaves that make the deck slippery when wet. 

 

At least once a year, it’s best to schedule a thorough cleaning as well to get rid of stubborn stains. Specialists can deep-clean timber decks with power sprays or proprietary cleaners. (It’s advisable to hire a qualified expert to do this task and prevent damaging your deck surface.) While getting your deck cleaned, you can employ garden clearance services to clear out your garden rubbish at the same time. 

 

Timber decking maintenance 

Timber decking can rot over time since it’s made of natural wood, but you can prolong the lifespan of your deck through regular maintenance and paint protection re-coating. Nails and screws can rust over time and discolour the timber. Or timber can push out the nails, causing them to protrude. Not to worry - your Tasker can go over every part of your deck to assess for any necessary maintenance steps. 

 

Maintenance methods include replacing screws or hammering down protruding nails. Jet washing, sanding, re-sealing, or staining are also other ways to maintain timber decking. Furthermore, your specialist may also re-apply preservative treatments to your deck. These treatments can prevent decay and freshen up the appearance of your deck. 

 

Timber decking repair 

A timber decking specialist can repair minor damages on your deck to avoid a complete replacement. Repairs may involve removing rotted boards and replacing them with new, pressure-treated ones. Your specialist may then have to apply a water-resistant coating over the entire deck and even out spots that cause water pooling. Once your decks are repaired, a Tasker can also help you set up that new rattan sunbed or garden bench you’ve always wanted to add to your garden.
