The timber is PEFC certifed, and meets the Australian Forestry Standard for sustainable forest management.

The length spread is generally good and is available in a number of widths.

Although not very common in New Zealand, coating your deck will extend its life. We recommend a minimum of one coat of a suitable exterior timber decking coating or oil be applied to all four sides plus cut ends of the decking prior to installation. Some species can be factory coated prior to delivery. Dulux specifcation for coatings available at www.timspec.co.nz



Annually cleaning your deck will help prolong its life, a light detergent that contains an anti-fungal agent is best.

Avoid using high pressure waterblasters or harsh chemicals.


Any coating or oil applied may require subsequent recoating. Refer to coating manufactures maintenance schedule.


Removing any items that will trap water underneath them (furniture, pot plants, etc.) for the duration of winter will extend the life of your deck and help keep it looking great.
