In our articles, we may mention a lot of different type of decking grades. Learn more about the decking grades below.
Select: Highest quality timber with a clean appearance, obtained by selecting boards with minimal natural features such as knots, pin holes, insect markings, gum veins etc. so that the boards only show the timbers grain and colour. It is also the most expensive to purchase of the grades, due to the extra cost associated with selection.
Standard & better: A mix between Standard grade boards and select.
