2 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, August 26, 2008 ................................................ HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE Decking delights Whether you need an additional room for entertaining or a secluded spot to relax, the solution may be to add a deck or renovate an existing one. The first step is to choose the right timber, but you also need to talk to the experts about moisture from the surrounding area, cross- ventilation, the best finish and ongoing maintenance. Over 50 years in the business, Bill Durkowyak, founder of Sydney Flooring, has tried many shapes, sizes and species of timber and he now gravitates to Australian hardwood or merbau as his recommended choice for decking timbers. They may be dressed or sawn boards, depending on the look the customer wants to achieve. He said tallow wood and merbau are probably the best- wearing timbers for decking due to the abundance of natural oils in the wood which repels water better than other timbers.
