A Red Beach customer reviewed numerous decking options for his new home, before deciding to have 100sqm of Plantation bamboo x-treme decking installed. He was so impressed that he sent an uninitiated email to us, saying:
Chris also mentioned how he liked the natural grain and colouring of the bamboo x-treme decking as it weathered and aged.
Some customers like to leave their bamboo x-treme decking to naturally “weather”, which will gradually fade to a caramel colour before turning more silver-grey in colour. Others prefer to oil the decking to bring back a richer, darker colour again – but this is largely a personal choice.
A key feature of bamboo x-treme decking is the end-matching tongue-in-groove join, which provides a nice, tidy and snug join. You can’t achieve this with most other decking products as they shrink or swell too much. Bamboo x-treme is very dense and stable, so joins like this (or mitering corners etc), edging and steps can look very sharp.
