We always get a bit sad when we see a nice old house getting knocked down, it's a piece of the suburb's history disappearing and they don't build them like they used to.
It's not all bad news! These old houses were built with a "cut roof" - made on site by carpenters out of decent section size hardwoods, there is plenty of really good timber in them!
The timber in the cut roof makes great decking boards when we saw them down to size. We can dress the boards clean to make our Remilled Decking in an 85x18mm board, or we can dress more lightly and leave more of the old patina to make a Rustic Decking in 85x20mm boards.
The deck in the photo has been installed by ACT Decks using our Remilled Blackbutt Decking. Using good quality decking boards and a reputable installer like the guys at ACT Decks will mean you have a deck that lasts for many years!
