Materials

 TIMBER

At Prodecking we only use the best and finest materials, depending on the application and location of the product.

All our products are mainly constructed from hardwoods and due to the nature of the availability of materials, we work closely with our suppliers ensuring that we give you the best possible product. All our suppliers adhere to the strict guidelines of the controlled forestry programs in that given country.

As much as we are passionate about timber we respect our environment and will not support any companies that have no respect for the future of our world. We would help you to make the right choice and advise you on what works due to our experience in working with most of the different types of timber.

COMPOSITES

Due to the political and environmental pressure and issues concerning the deforestation of the worlds remaining forests and trees, composite materials have become an alternative for decking. Composite materials are mainly manufactured from recycled materials and will not have the same characteristics, appearance and feel as natural timbers.

The major advantages of using such materials rather than timbers are that you have a more stable product that does not require any maintenance. Composites come in different profiles, colour and sizes and each different product from different companies will have to be installed according to their instruction manuals.

We are proud to be preferred installers of On-The-Deck’s Trex range of composites.
