Choosing the right timber for your decking
One of the most popular wood for decking is bangkirai, a tropical wood from Southeast Asia. It is very hard, weather-resistant and has a reddish brown hue. In addition, there are a number of other tropical wood species with similar characteristics, but other colours such as massaranduba, garapa or teak. A fundamental problem in tropical woods is the possible harm to the rain forest. If you opt for tropical timber, then you definitely buy FSC-certified wood. FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council - an international organization dedicated to sustainable forestry worldwide.
Other popular wood types are the traditional oak, a popular choice for building work for centuries, oak is attractive and durable with oak boards able to last for many years. Pine is also popular, although weaker than some other types of timber pine is low cost and can be treated to make it more durable and long lasting. Another option is bamboo, ideal for creating an oriental feel bamboo may not be as strong but is incredibly flexible giving it the durability required. As well as natural wood decking, you are also able to use upvc decking with a timber effect, this decking can create the natural look of wood but will not have the feel of genuine timber decking, Approved Trader decking companies will be happy to give you multiple quotes on the different option and answer any question you may have on the different decking options.
