Why Choose Spotted Gum Decking?

Spotted Gum is a combination of four types of timber that grow from Northern Victoria through to the tablelands of Queensland. It has several unique characteristics which make it appealing within WA homes:


Available in a wide range of colours, Spotted Gum decking can vary from a pale straw colour right through to stunning natural dark browns.


Spotted Gum is a native Australian hardwood that boasts the highest level of durability. This exceptional strength combined with its ability to be to machined, cut and shaped has made it a popular choice of timber within the building and construction industry in Australia.


Spotted Gum also has a high rating for resistance against wood destroying fungi and insects, including termites.


It also has lower levels of tannins when compared to other eucalypts. This reduces the likelihood of nearby brickwork or paintwork to stain when water runs over the unpainted surface.

Is Spotted Gum Eco-Friendly?

All of the Spotted Gum sourced by WA Timber Decking Professionals is supplied from credible timber plantations located on the east coast of Australia. By sourcing our Spotted Gum decking from these environmentally friendly plantations we are helping to increase biodiversity within Australia.

Spotted Gum Maintenance & Care

Like most Australian hardwoods, Spotted Gum decking can tend to warp, twist or swell when exposed to the wrong conditions. In order to avoid this, the timber should be pre-oiled and secured with right fasteners. It should also be positioned in an area with appropriate ventilation, low moisture levels and exposure to the elements. The timber should then be treated every 6 to 12 months depending on the level of traffic and exposure.

We recommend that you speak with us for advice on whether a particular timber will be suitable for your individual requirements and how it should be maintained.
