When building a deck, taking into consideration the extreme weather conditions throughout Western Australia is extremely important. The continual cycle of sun, water and wind create a repetitive and relentless environment that can degrade traditional timber decking materials.
Summer months are especially hot in Perth, and it is not uncommon to have two or three weeklong heatwaves, with temperatures that can exceed 38 degrees. These temperatures, coupled with the low humidity across WA, can take their toll on external building materials, and timber is one of the most vulnerable.
Being a composite decking material, Ekodeck can withstand these constant summer heat loads that would usually cause timber decks to fail. The durability of Ekodeck and its natural resistance to rot and decay without the need for oiling or sealing makes Ekodeck the ideal composite decking choice for anywhere in WA.
Termite Resistant: Ekodeck’s innate resistance against termites is also beneficial for areas of Western Australia with sandy soils and seasonal moisture, which provide the perfect breeding ground for white ants.
Low Maintenance: Ekodeck is your low-maintenance alternative to timber decking. Easy to install and maintain, long-lasting and great-looking – it’s the obvious choice for your next decking project.
Exclusive to Bunnings: Being exclusively available at Bunnings Warehouse means that no matter where you live in Western Australia, you can easily find everything you’ll need for your new Ekodeck.
If you have any questions about an upcoming composite decking project in or around Perth or WA, we’d be happy to help!
We have handy resources to help take the guesswork out of your decking or screening project. These include:
The old decking was pine and was starting to splinter, buckle and was just plain uncomfortable to walk on. The new Ekodeck finish looks and feels great. Did it all myself and really worth the effort.
I now have a stunning, modern looking deck that will last longer than the joists holding it! Excellent product that has produced excellent results and I couldn’t be happier with it.
We have a new deck with ekodeck we are very happy with how it looks and how it is wearing. Our builder really enjoyed working with it too. Thank you
