Timber Decking or Patio: How to Decide

We have been providing timber decking materials to the Brisbane area for more than 40 years and have recently expanded to supplying timber decking in the Greater Sydney Region, so forgive us if we are a little biased towards timber. However, we know that some people prefer a patio over a timber deck and we understand. Here are some of the factors that go into deciding between timber decking and a patio.

The Case for a Patio

A patio can be a lot cheaper than a timber deck. It doesn't take as much expertise to build a patio as it does to build a Timber deck. If you are a fan of having a fire pit, it's obviously a much better fit for a patio. If you have a flat yard and just want to get something done without working as hard, a patio might be for you.

The Case for a Timber Deck

A Timber deck can be built on the ground, but it can also be built on the second floor of a home. The railing on a timber deck offers safety and also can make it feel a little bit more enclosed or private. Timber decks look much more natural and are great for integrating a home into its natural surroundings.

If your home is on a hill or a piece of land that is not level, a Timber deck makes a lot more sense because it sits on support beams above the ground. If there is too much of a hill in your yard, it is almost impossible to make a patio work.

The Tiebreaker

If you are deciding between building a patio or a Timber deck, here is the tiebreaker: The timber aesthetic.

There is nothing that looks as good as a well-built Timber deck. There is also a great sense of pride in knowing that you built something that looks so good, feels so solid and provides you with so much entertainment value.
