What are the differences between hardwood and softwood timber?

Hardwood is produced from deciduous trees which lose their leaves each year while softwood comes from evergreens. Hardwood trees tend to be slow growing, resulting in stronger, denser and more hardy wood. As a result, hardwood is usually are more expensive than softwood and are found in a lot of high-quality furniture and home improvement products. They usually last longer, and some may not even need to be treated to make them resistant to insects and other microfauna.

What Maintenance does Hardwood Timber Decking Require?

Properly maintaining your deck will mean a beautiful deck with its distinctively rich colour for many years to come. You should properly oil your deck every 12 months to accentuate and protect its colour, as well as to make the wood stronger and more resistant to shrinking or deterioration from harsh UV rays. Additionally, you should sweep your deck and keep it clear from all dirt and debris. You can further clean it with a bristle brush or a power washer, but be careful with the latter or get a professional for this procedure as if cleaned on too high of a setting it may damage the deck.
