Softwood is better suited for windows, ceilings, feature walls and furniture. Softwood timber is most often Pine.
Hardwood is denser and more durable compared to softwood. That’s why hardwood is the most popular choice for flooring, cladding and outdoor decks and structures. Examples of hardwood timber are merbau, blackbutt, ironbark and spotted gum.
H class ratings determine the hazard level of the timber and the varying levels of chemical treatments used in the processing stage. Hazard ratings are graded from H1 being the lowest to H6 being the highest.
Durability classes assess the natural ability of timber to resist decay and insects. Durability is rated from Class 1 being the most durable to Class 4 being the least.
Strength ratings (F) refer to the timber’s ability to endure stress. The grades begin at F1, the lowest and go beyond F40.
See our timber ratings breakdown.
Different types of timber are treated in different ways. For instance, timber used in housing and landscaping needs to be resistant to insects such as borers and termites while timber used in boats or jetties needs to be resistant to rot and decay.
There are many ways timber is treated ranging from chemical treatments like Copper Chrome Arsenate (CCA), water-based treatments like Alkaline Copper Quaternary (ACQ), oil-based preservatives and vacuum processes.
Examples of child-safe timber treatments are Alkaline Copper Quaternary (ACQ), Copper Azole (CA), and Light Organic Solvent Preservative (LOSP).

Not sure whether your deck requires lineal metres or set lengths? Our Customer Care team is here to guide you through your timber buying journey and will help you find the right option for your timber decking project.
See our range of decking timber.
Decking nails are quicker to install and are more cost effective in the short term; however, they may require replacing more often due to rust or deck movement.
On the other hand, decking screws take longer to install but are less likely to need replacing. They are more secure and hardy to elements that cause timber to warp like rain, humidity or heat.
Landscape grade timber is often cut around the ‘heart’ (middle) of the tree trunk as this is where the timber is most dense and strong. The timber cut from the heart of the tree will almost always be used as fence posts. The fence palings will be cut from the outer area of the tree trunk. Landscape grade sleepers are only required to have two ‘good’ sides to be up to standard.
When buying landscape grade timber, consider the area and elements it may be exposed to. This will help you choose timber with the right ratings and durability class.

Also known as wood plastic composite or WPC, this is a top choice for any outdoor deck.
