A house or building can only be as strong as the materials used to build it. Using below-average materials to save on costs can backfire in a few years as the property will inevitably show signs of wear and tear prematurely. To avoid losses from deteriorating property value and ensure the safety of everyone on the premises, invest in construction materials that are worth their weight in gold.

Tile Importer Pty Ltd’s range of engineered wood posts is a prime example. We supply home builders with treated pine, Merbau and timber that are strong, durable and well-suited for the tough Australian environment. Our engineered wooden posts also have high aesthetic appeal. Our products give great value for money and will serve property investors well, regardless if they live in or sell a house built with timber from Tile Importer Pty Ltd.

High-Quality Engineered Timber Posts in Melbourne

Having worked with builders and homeowners in Melbourne for over 50 years, Tile Importer Pty Ltd is now a trusted institution, a major supplier of engineered wood and flooring products for houses all over Australia.

We stock a large range of engineered merbau posts for residential construction needs. This hardwood is very durable and requires little maintenance as it is resistant to insect infestation, cracking and splitting. Merbau also has a dark, reddish-brown hue, which is very attractive on its own. Unsurprisingly, our Merbau hardwood posts are popular among customers looking for materials for pergolas, gazebos, garden posts and outdoor decks.

Tile Importer Pty Ltd is also a supplier of finger jointed posts: two interlocking pieces of wood joined together with wood glue, the joints resembling two hands locked together at the fingers. These are ideal for builders and designers looking for ultra-straight and fantastic-looking natural timber in lengths and dimensions that are very hard to come by.

We also have Light Organic Solvent (LOSP) treated pine posts which are pre-primed with non-toxic amounts of copper naphthenates and synthetic pyrethroids, making them resistant to insects, moisture and fungi. Available in a wide range of lengths and dimensions, our treated pine posts are excellent for fences, toolsheds and outdoor playhouses.
