Timber Battens / Decking suggestions

Michael Fawcett

We are building this year in Hobart, Tasmania. We have some wooden feature timber battens both inside and outside of the house. We don't want something that requires a lot of upkeep externally.

Any suggestions/thoughts on best practice for this?

We are unsure of depth of colour etc. Open to suggestions. I have attached the side view for an idea of how wood is featured.

Also decking... Modwood or Hardiedeck success stories?

Thanks again

    would love to see the "timber" external features replaced with Corten steel..solid, "earthy" no maintenance, strong and beautiful and the rusty surface outside looks great with the timber inside

    Hi Michael,

    If you are incorporating timber battens and decking into your home design, make sure you check our DecoBatten and DecoDeck :) They are low maintenance, UV resistant and have a marine grade finish.

    DecoDeck combines the natural beauty of timber decking with the strength and durability of aluminium. A first in aluminium decking systems, DecoDeck replicates the form, feel and appearance of natural timber decking with the Super Durable DecoWood wood grain finish.

    Plastic wood can get really hot to walk on but shouldn’t be an issue in tas. The deco pics look lovely

    DecoDeck aluminium decking is one of the coolest decks on the market - doesn't get hot like plastic. Good luck with the project :)
