Frequently Asked Questions
To help you understand more about our services, we have compiled a list of the commonly asked questions.
Should I opt for timber or composite decking?
One of the most common questions by would-be decking owners is over which material to go for: timber or composite. Both look great and have their own benefits, but ultimately it is down to personal tastes.
Many prefer timber because of its natural look and rustic feel, while others opt for composite materials because they are very low maintenance.
If you’re in any doubt about which material is right for your outdoor space, talk to one of our experts on XXX.
Can I install my timber or composite decking?
Yes, you can, just like you can probably fix a leak and mend faulty wiring. But unless you are a professional, these jobs are best left to the experts.
Using a reputable company like NO1 Decks Brisbane gives you peace of mind that your decking will be installed by licensed professionals whose work is covered by a written warranty.
How long will my timber decking last?
Timber decking is made with long-lasting and durable materials such as hardwoods or pressure-treated softwoods. As long as quality materials are used, and the decking is well maintained, you can expect a lifespan of around 25 years.
Does decking require maintenance?
Like your home’s internal spaces, decking requires regular cleaning and maintenance. This includes sweeping to remove leaves, dirt and other debris. It is advisable to give your decking a thorough clean at least once a year. Use a mild detergent or a specialist decking cleaning product. Or consider a pressure washer.

What do I need to do to make my site ready for the installation of a carport?
