Aussie’s love a good swimming pool to cool off on a Summer’s day. So it’s important to have your pool area kitted out with the best deck and help bring the area to life.
The area beside your pool offers a place to lounge and entertain for you and your family. To get the full enjoyment from your pool area, you need decking material that is sturdy but soft on the feet! Darwin decking is an experienced pool decking contractor and are able to install a non slip decking for your home.
Whether it is a new pool or an existing pool, we can give it a new warm, timeless, and welcoming face. Our decks will provide you with peace of mind while having family fun.
Keep in mind; the pool area defines the look and the style of the swimming area. So we construct an inviting space using durable material. The material determines the integrity of the deck. Therefore, you can set lounge chairs, tables and other pool/backyard furniture without fear.
Our team can construct a range of balustrade to compliment your decking area, frameless glass, hardwood posts and handrails with stainless steel tension wires, powder coated aluminium systems and traditional hardwood or treated pine balustrades with vertical posts.
The factors to consider when selecting the best balustrade for you are safety, view, maintenance and what look will best suit your home, traditional homes more often will be suited to hardwood or treated pine balustrades with vertical spindles, whilst more modern properties benefit from either frameless glass or stainless steel tension wire systems which can be constructed onto variety of posts and handrails such as hardwood, aluminium and stainless steel.
We are just in love with our new decking around our swimming pool and bbq area. The team were very professional to deal with, and the job was completed within 3 days all at a great price.”

How long will my deck last?
The lifespan of decks depends on the type on the types of materials. For instance, softwood decks will last up to 15 years or more, while hardwood decks will last up to 20 years. However, the important thing is the deck substructure. Timber rails can last up 25 years when treated well.
How do you fix scratches on a deck?
Both wood and composite can scratch, though the tendency is higher in wood than in composite. Moving furniture or heavy play is the primary cause of scratches on decking boards. The solution varies with the manufacturer and type of scratches.
While scratches might make your deck ugly, it is advisable not to repair them because, over time, they blend in with the rest of the deck. However, your composite deck has a noticeable scratch use a soldering iron to level the scratch as well as blend it with other parts of the deck.
Alternatively, you can touch up small scratches, and scuffs use a tough-up concealer.
For wood deck boards, you can paint or stain the deck.
For deeper scratches or substantial damage on the deck, replace it.
Is it possible to restore the deck colour?
Decks will lose their colour with time. But it is easy to restore colour if the deck with a new lick of paint and sealer to protect… However, the selection of the paint matters:
- Oil or paraffin paints are a better option if you don’t want the wood decks to absorb moisture and soak up with water.
- Paint using a paint that has UV blockers to preventing fading or loss of colour from your decks.
- To protect your decks from wood-eating bugs, use paints laced with insecticides.
If you choose to restore the colour of your deck, ensure that use a stain-blocking oil or an alkyd primer before painting.
And when you apply the paint, use a paint roller or pump-style sprayer. Ensure you get an even coat while painting.
