Decking

The majority of our durable recycled timbers can be run into a decking profile of your choice. Profiles range from 60mm x 19mm through to 220mm x 40mm. Dependant on the timber species, we prefer to keep a width to thickness ratio of 5:1. This means that the boards will be resistant to cupping, which can be unsightly & may cause surface ponding after rain.

The table below may assist selecting a species for your new deck.
