Merbau is a rich and highly durable hardwood that is widely renowned for its coarse but even texture along with a reddish-brown colour that darkens over time. It is one of the most commonly used decking and outdoor timbers for high-end residential and commercial projects in Australia.
Merbau decking can require more regular maintenance to keep it in good condition, including cleaning, sanding, and sealing. It is also important to use stainless steel screws or nails to prevent rust stains from developing.
One fun fact about Merbau is that it is a hardwood that is native to Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines. It is a dense and durable wood that is resistant to rot, insects, and weathering.
