To maintain your timber deck in the tropics, you should clean it regularly with a mild detergent and a soft-bristled brush to remove dirt, grime, and mildew. You should also inspect the deck for signs of damage or decay, and repair any issues promptly. Applying a sealer or stain to your timber deck can also help to protect it from moisture and UV damage.

How much does it cost to build a timber deck in the tropics?

When it comes to the cost of building a timber deck in the tropics, there are many factors that can affect the overall price, including the size and complexity of the deck, the type of timber used and whether some sort of pergola or roofing is required. To get an accurate estimate for your specific project, it's best to contact us and we can provide you with a detailed quote based on your specific needs and requirements. Keep in mind that while the initial cost of a timber deck may be higher than other materials, such as concrete, timber is a natural and durable material that can add value and beauty to your home for years to come.

How do I protect my timber deck from the sun in the tropics?

To protect your timber deck from the sun in the tropics, you should apply a UV-resistant sealer or stain to the timber. You should also consider installing a shade structure, such as a pergola or awning, to provide additional protection from the sun's rays. 

Why are more people trending towards manmade decking?

Manmade decking, also known as composite decking, is a popular alternative to traditional wood decking. Here are some advantages of manmade decking:

  1. Durability: Composite decking is resistant to fading, staining, and scratching, making it a great option for high-traffic areas or places with harsh weather conditions. It also doesn't rot or splinter like traditional wood decking.

  2. Low maintenance: Composite decking requires very little maintenance compared to wood decking, which needs to be regularly treated, sealed, and stained. With composite decking, you don't have to worry about sanding, sealing, or painting it.

  3. Environmentally friendly: Composite decking is often made from recycled materials, which can help reduce waste and save trees. Additionally, it doesn't require any harmful chemicals to maintain or protect it.

  4. Consistency: With composite decking, you don't have to worry about inconsistencies in colour, texture, or quality like you might with wood decking. It is manufactured to be uniform in appearance and quality.

  5. Variety: Composite decking is available in a wide range of colours, textures, and finishes, so you can choose one that matches your style and complements your home.

  6. Longevity: Composite decking has a longer lifespan than traditional wood decking, typically lasting between 25-30 years. This makes it a great investment for homeowners who want a durable and long-lasting decking option.

Overall, manmade decking offers a number of advantages over traditional wood decking, making it a popular choice for homeowners who want a durable, low-maintenance, and eco-friendly decking option. Contact us today to find out more.
