Resilient Decking Materials

To accommodate our Melbourne customers, we offer a wide variety of decking finishes and materials for you to choose from. Sometimes, having so many choices can seem daunting, but our helpful staff members will walk you through the options and help you choose so you don’t feel overwhelmed or intimidated.
For the most part, we mainly use the three following decking materials:

  • Spotted Gum. Spotted gum decking works well in numerous climates and normally comes in soft textural variations and colours. The timber grain is fairly even, and the boards are 140mm wide.
  • Merbau. Merbau decking is as durable as the spotted gum decking, but the colours are richer and deeper. The grain is also dense and wavy, giving it a unique appearance. The timber widths can either be 90mm or 140mm.
  • Trex®. Trex® composite decking is a great option if you don’t want to maintain timber decking. Because it’s made from composite materials, it looks a lot like timber but doesn’t need nearly as much upkeep.

If you have any additional questions about our decking materials, feel free to ask.

Not a fan of the maintenance that goes with timber decking? A great alternative is Trex® composite decking which gives you the timber look without the hassle.


Trex® is very popular overseas and is rapidly establishing its reputation in Australia. We’re proud to have the opportunity to work with Australian distributor Replas who are committed to finding a solution to plastic waste and sustainable alternatives to traditional building materials.  Replas is enjoying great success with major projects in public spaces such as parks and gardens, playgrounds and schools using composite material for furniture, play equipment, boardwalks, pedestrian areas, etc
