25 Jan. 2020

New Partnership with Woodhouse Timber and TimberTech®

Woodhouse Timber and TimberTech® have partnered up to bring the TimberTech AZEK® line of decking to the Australian marketplace. The premium capped polymer decking, made without wood, provides unparalleled performance while boasting unrivalled design, with a Lifetime Limited Product Warranty and a 50-Year Fade & Stain Warranty.

Woodhouse Timber CEO, Mark Woodhouse, said, “We are excited about both the TimberTech AZEK decking products and working with a company at the calibre of TimberTech, the number one brand in premium decking. They have changed the game with some of their investment in sustainability and recycling and innovations such as Multi-Width Decking and the new Vintage Collection® decking is unique in the market as it is not only engineered to last longer than any other composite decking, but it also has a natural hardwood look.”

Woodhouse have been appointed as the exclusive Australian distributors of TimberTech AZEK decking.

This new partnership offers Australian decking specialists, architects and tradies a best in category product choice that appeals to clients wanting a build with longevity that requires minimal maintenance.

The Vintage Collection is available in Mahogany, Cypress®, Dark Hickory, English Walnut® and Coastline®, which are the perfect shades for those seeking a cohesive and elegant colour palette. Initially stock in this range will be available in two lengths (4.8 m & 6.0 m) and two widths (140 mm and 180 mm) with both widths 25mm thick although these sizes have been rounded off from actual imperial sizing to metric equivalents.

The proprietary Alloy Armour Technology in the protective capping of TimberTech AZEK decking prevents fading, staining, and weathering allowing AZEK boards to stand the test of time.

Mark said that stock will be available in Australia from February.

NCC Changes – Cladding

In response to recent fires and the use of combustible cladding on some high rise buildings, The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) has proposed changes to its National Construction Code (NCC). These changes have affected the use and applications of timber cladding products in some circumstances.

There is so much confusion and mis-information flying around in the media. Most of it is incorrect so here are some key facts…

  • Fact 1: The building code amendment does not come in to effect until 2020
  • Fact 2: It only applies to Class 2 and Class 3 buildings (residential apartment buildings and residential parts of hotels, motels, boarding houses)
  • Fact 3: Timber cladding can be used on ALL Class 1 buildings (houses, townhouses and apartments). Code changes do NOT apply to Class 1
  • Fact 4: Timber is still the ultimate renewable and still the preferred choice
