Whenever a builder or some other trade embarks on their next outdoor construction project, one of the first key steps is to determine the right materials to use. For example, putting together timber decking for the client means choosing the right species of wood for their environment.
As timber experts, the team here at Sunstate Timber recommends more robust certain species from Northern New South Wales and Queensland timber for your hardwood flooring and decking. You’ll find that this breed is excellent for lasting across all seasons and matching every client’s needs.
Still not convinced? Here are 4 more reasons to consider.
1. Timber is more environmentally friendly.
Every forest around Australia is more than a place to find fresh timber for us to use. They’re also essential to the growth and survival of our local environment, absorbing the carbon dioxide that builds up in our atmosphere and releasing oxygen in turn.
Staying eco-friendly is a simple logic for Sunstate Timber. We believe in selective logging to obtain resource, so that we always have a renewable resource for the future.
2. Wood ain’t wood in Queensland and it doesn’t always last as long.
Other timber dealers would think to use any species for outdoor areas for building your deck or pergola. However, while it might be cheaper to harvest and refine, the final product won’t last long. Every Queensland resident has dealt with a high rate of humidity and heat, which causes sub-grade species of timber to shrink or warp over time.
3. This timber has a better rating for outdoor performance.
With expert advice, some flooring timbers and decking timbers have a few advantages compared to other native species. This includes natural borer resistance fire resistance and the ability to be restored to near original condition through re-finishing.
4. Choosing Correct timber means saving money in the long run.
Compared to concrete or brick and mortar buildings, timber is easy to set up for any project. Making extensions or alterations is no problem for a skilled team of carpenters and builders. Furthermore, timber has a variety of species and grades, allowing you to select the exact quality you need for a quality finished project.
Choosing hardwood timber shouldn’t have to be a hassle. If you’re looking for a building material that’s eco-friendly, cost-effective and assured to perform well, then the right timber species is the way to go.
