What is Hardwood Timber?
Hardwood timber generally comes from deciduous trees and softwood timber from evergreens. Hardwood timber is usually stronger than softwood timber as they grow slower and thus are denser. Because they grow slower they are therefore more expensive than softwoods.
Types of Hardwood Decking
There are many different types of hardwood decking that you can choose from. Listed below are the most common types of hardwood decking. The list provides hardwood timber that is grown in Australia and hardwood timber that is sourced from overseas.

Advantages of Hardwood Decking
In general hardwood decking is stronger and longer wearing (more durable). Hardwood decking is also naturally more resilient to termites and other insect infestations.
It has been argued that hardwood decking boards are richer in colour.
A really good advantage of hardwood decking is that it requires less maintenance.
As hardwood decking is stronger than softwood decking it is less likely to be damaged and acquire scratches, marks or dents.
Because a hardwood deck is more expensive and longer lasting it will increase the value of your home more than a softwood deck would do.
Disadvantages of Hardwood Decking
Hardwood decking is more expensive than softwood timber decking. Hardwoods are more difficult to cut than softwoods. Thus decks made with hardwood decking are more difficult to construct. This means that the outlay for a hardwood deck is higher in both materials and labour. However this can be offset by the less maintenance that is required, softwood usually requires more re-frequent sanding back and resealing.
There are far more varieties of hardwoods giving you a bigger choice in decking materials.
