We’re fast approaching summer, which means it’s almost time to break out the barbecue, get the pool ready and fill out your calendar with plenty of outdoor entertaining. If you’re looking to spend lots of time with friends and family this summer, you’ll want a deck that can stand up to the elements.

Here are some scenarios in which HardieDeck™ could be the ideal solution for your summer needs.

1. You live in a bushfire prone area

Australia’s rugged bushland landscape is renowned for its beauty, however it can be a challenging environment as far finding materials that meet your local Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) rating, which are both stylish and compliant.

HardieDeck was the perfect choice for this award-winning home as it was compliant with local BAL ratings.

HardieDeck isn’t only resistant to rot and termites – it’s also fire resistant, which makes it the perfect accompaniment to an outdoor entertaining area with a barbecue or even a fire pit. HardieDeck is deemed non-combustible, which means it will stand up to the risk of fires far better than timber and traditional composite decks.

2. You entertain on your deck

Summer is the best time of year for barbeques and parties, which means lots of foot traffic and dancing! Given all those guests outside, you need to know your decking won’t cause injury. With concealed screws and solid, splinter-free boards, HardieDeck is ideal. Its intelligent design also means it stays strong as it ages – even against constant sunlight and moisture – with no risk of splintering.

3. Your kids play outdoors

Whether you’re entertaining lots of guests, enjoying quiet time with your family outside or watching the kids jump around and play, HardieDeck always feels smooth and solid underneath – even on bare feet by the pool. So, whether you’re walking, running or playing on the deck, there won’t be any signs of bouncing, squeaks or sponginess which makes it a safe option for families with children.

HardieDeck won't splinter as a result of sunlight exposure, so it's a safer choice for families with kids who love to play outdoors!

4. You have a busy pool area

Australian summers are hot – which means you’re more likely to be in the pool rather than out! And with all this water splashing around, there’s nothing worse for traditional decks than the relentless punishment from pools and spas – especially with the added damage of summer sun. But HardieDeck stands up to the repeated cycles of a baking-hot sun and water splashing from pools and spas. With so much resistance to damage*, you can rest assured your deck will be in tip-top condition for years to come.

With summer just around the corner, HardieDeck has everything you need to enjoy the warmer months outside. Contact us to learn about this premium fibre cement product and get your outdoor entertainment area prepped and ready for a big summer season.

*When installed in strict compliance with the James Hardie literature relevant at the time of installation including but not limited to all relevant ventilation, sealing requirements and product suitability.
