Timber Decking Installation

Wood decking is a popular installation option in Singapore. They are popularly used on balconies, planter boxes and outdoor and semi-outdoor spaces. In the case of outdoor spaces such as fish pond areas, wood decking also offers access to the areas underneath the decking.

The types of timber that are popularly used in Singapore are Chengal, Ironwood, Merbau and Yellow Balau wood. These materials have proven to be durable in our tropical and humid climate. They offer a natural wooden aesthetic and warm feeling that could not be replicated easily with other materials.

Installing timber decking requires the installation of timber support structure, raising the decking to the required height, with the decks installed over the support. Gaps will be required between the decks to allow for expansion. After installation is done, the timber decking will need to be treated by sanding and varnish to give it the required finish.

Chengal Wood Decking

Chengal is currently the most popular choice of material for timber decking in Singapore due to its aesthetics and authentic wooden feel.

Chengal wood can also be sanded and varnished to improve its natural colour tone and protection against wear and tear. Chengal requires proper maintenance annually to its surface if it is exposed to rain and the sun, if not cracking due to expansion and contraction might occur.

Ironwood could have cracks over time and requires regular maintenance to keep it in the best condition.

Yellow Balau Decking

Yellow Balau decking is a relatively recent option for decking in Singapore. It is an affordable hardwood and is completely natural due to its high oil. This makes it highly resistant to extreme weather or bugs. Its relative advantage is its consistent colour tone compared to the other popular species. Due to its light tone, it also gives an illusion of space, making your balcony or outdoor room appear visually larger and more spacious. Yellow Balau wood is  also physically less dense than Chengal.
