14 May, 2018

Is your outdoor area looking tired and dull?  Or are you building a home and looking for the perfect solution for your backyard?  If you want to transform your outdoor area and be the envy of all your neighbours, consider hardwood decking from Subiaco Restoration. Hardwood decking has a relaxing, natural aura and each individual timber has their own distinct appearance.  Adding decking to your home is a great way to expand the living area of your home and encourage you and your family to spend more time outdoors without spending alot of money on major extensions. If you want your deck to not only look amazing, but to be durable enough to stand up to the elements and not cost an arm and a leg then consider hardwood decking.  Here’s why we think hardwood decking is the perfect solution for your Australian home.

What is Hardwood Timber?

Hardwood timber is usually stronger and more durable than softwood timber.  Hardwood timber usually comes from Australian deciduous trees whereas softwood timber comes from evergreens.  The trees used for hardwood timber generally grow slower and are more dense, making them more expensive than softwood timber.
