Timber Decks

A timber deck by Narellan Home Improvement Centre is the most popular way to re-floor your new outdoor entertaining space. Not only are timber decks cost-effective, they are also ageless and will always be an outdoor feature. We use a variety of different timber deck materials – the most poplar being merbau decking boards – but we also have plenty of experience in blackbutt, jarrah, spotted gum and pine decking. Live in a fire zone and don’t know if a timber deck will be appropriate for your home’s BAL rating? Speak to us about the various options available.

Why Install a Timber Deck


Cost effective


Weather and termite resistant options available



For decks low to the ground, merbau hardwood timber decking boards are one of the best options available at a reasonable price. While merbau timber decks have superior termite and weather resistance, they also look very appealing. TIP: Choose a lighter oil for your timber deck to maintain the beautiful natural variations in the timber (see picture).

Timber decks have the added bonus of variations in decking board sizes to adapt your deck to your space. 90mm wide decking boards (pictured) respect your space for smaller timber decks, while 140mm wide decking boards make for more of a statement piece and look less busy in larger timber decks.

To preserve the life of your timber deck, add a pergola to provide shelter from the weather and harsh ultra violet rays. Laser cut privacy screen panels also look great with a timber deck. TIP: Plant-inspired privacy screen panels tie in nicely with your deck’s natural wood grains.
