Deciding on a decking hardwood on a large deck with house clad in part zincalume and old part will be painted, probably a slate dark blue-grey. I'm leaning towards Spotted Gum or any other Eastcoast reddish toned hardwood timber.
Have you heard of DecoDeck? It is a decking system that combines the natural beauty of timber decking with the strength and durability of aluminium. The best part is, it is pretty much maintenance free - no sanding, painting or staining, ever!
It is also available in spotted gum :)
Like to know the best hardwood to use for our new deck ?
What colour hardwood floor?
Hardwood Timber Decking or Composite Decking?
