The benefits of hardwood timber

Hardwood timber is sourced from slower-growing trees and is usually denser than softwoods, providing them with an exceptional level of strength and durability.

Hardwood is considered an investment because it is usually longer-lasting, requiring less maintenance because of its natural weather resistance. Hardwood also offers excellent fire resistance and won’t billow toxic smoke if it does catch fire.

Hardwood timber’s most common use is for flooring, but other uses include cladding, panelling, fences, boats, buildings and outdoor furniture. It can be used in residential and commercial applications, both indoor and outdoor. It’s elegant, easy to clean and a great long-term investment. It offers great acoustics, eliminating hollow sounds or vibrations, and improves indoor air quality as it’s less likely to trap allergens like animal dander, dust and pollen.

Robertson Hardwoods supplies Red or Yellow Balau hardwood, sourced from suppliers in South East Asia for decking specifically, due to its unique mixture of warm colours ranging from golden browns, light browns, and pale reddish-browns, which ensures a look that will sit beautifully within a natural environment. This particular hardwood is perfectly suited to decks in the South African climate.
