Summertime in Australia is an entertainers dream— hot days spent lounging by the pool and long summer nights made for alfresco dining. For many Australian households, getting their outdoor area up to scratch before summer is a top priority. However for one couple, replacing the paving around their pool with a more durable decking system was an urgent affair.

Call one of our friendly experts on 13 53 83 to find out how you can revamp your outdoor area with HardieDeck.


Made from premium fibre cement, this HardieDeck decking alternative will withstand the Australian sun and is suitable for a pool or outdoor entertainment area. 

Safety matters

When the owners of this home noticed that the paving around their pool was quickly deteriorating and becoming uneven underfoot, they knew they needed a more durable solution that would be able to withstand moisture from their pool area. 

The timber steps leading to the front of their home also needed some TLC after the hot Australian sun had caused them to splinter and warp. Re-staining the steps was becoming a constant chore for the couple who wanted to spend more time enjoying their outdoor area rather than maintaining it, so they went searching for a low-maintenance, durable decking solution. That's when they came across HardieDeck.
