Tip: To calculate how many lineal meters of flooring or decking you need for your custom design outdoor living spaces, first you must work out the total square meterage required. If you have a simple square space multiply length by width and this gets you the square meters. If it’s a more complex space in your backyard, break it down into rectangular sections and multiply length and width and then add the total. Once you have this follow the below simple equation.
1000 divided by (width of flooring board or decking board allowing your preferred gap between boards in millimetres) = How many lineal meters per square meter. Now multiply this by the square meterage you require, and you have your total.
For example: Your deck is 2 meters wide and 4 meters long and you want to put down 140 mm Merbau decking with a three-millimetre spacing between decking boards.
2 x 4 = 8 Square meters
1000 divided by 143 = 6.993 lineal meters per square meters
8 x 6.993 = 55.944 lineal meters
Note: Allow up to 10% extra for wastage.
Frequently Asked Questions
Which timber is best for decking?
Choosing the right material for decking comes down to a wide range of factors. In Melbourne and other places where it tends to rain a lot, you need to consider different materials for building decks than those most suitable to areas with drier and warmer weather. As such, the climate is one of the biggest factors to base your decision on. Other aspects that you should consider are your budget, the level of required maintenance, and your desired appearance.
A general rule for decking is that hardwood is more durable and less likely to split than softwood, but it is more expensive too. However, softwood is easier to work with.
At Tile Importer, we offer one of the biggest varieties of decking in Melbourne. Get in touch with us to talk to one of our experts about your home improvement or decking plans – we are more than happy to help you with finding the ideal materials for your next project.
How do I take care of my decking materials?
Taking care of decking materials is essential for a long-lasting and good-looking deck. This starts with ensuring that the decking is properly sealed in the initial installation phase. On an ongoing basis, using oil, sealer, or wax on your deck regularly makes sure your timber decking is protected from the weather.
Secondly, regularly cleaning your decking is also important for maintenance and increasing longevity. In general, a composite deck requires less maintenance. To clean your decking, you don’t need expensive cleaners; a soap and water solution will do the trick.
When you are choosing your decking supplies in our Melbourne store, make sure to ask us about the highest quality maintenance products and routines as well.
How long will decking last?
How long a deck lasts depends on multiple factors. First and foremost, the choice of the right material for decking is crucial for its durability. The location of the deck, if it is covered, and the amount of maintenance (sealing and cleaning) are two other very important factors. With proper care, most decks will last Melbourne residents up to 15 to 20 years. Some premium hardwoods can even last up to 50 years.
