Just wondering if anyone has used Perma timber and are there any reviews around vs Eko deck? Any advice would be great.
Let me tag a few members who I believe have used composite boards in projects:
You might also be interested in these previous discussions on the site:
Hi @baza, I've used Ekodeck before but not perma timber. After doing a bit of research I think they are pretty much the same thing but Ekodeck might be a little cheaper (although there's no pricing on the permatimber website which is annoying!). I only used Ekodeck becaue it was just easier for me to pick it up from my local Bunnings rather than trying to find a Statco or Bowens or ordering it online
I've used the Eko products & ModWood but not Perma. In-fact hadn't heard of it until your post.
It sounds very similar to the others so may just come down to pricing, size, availability & colour.
Can they send you a sample? (I know Eko will) This would allow you to do some simple tests yourself - ease of drilling & screwing, ease of cutting & quality of cut, abrasion resistance - are a few that spring to mind.
I've used Permatimber batten cladding @baza, not decking. Good product and good people to deal with over here in Perth. I'll be using the cladding on my new house too.
I ended up not being able to use this type of decking due to bushfire requirements, so even though I investigated it, my experience with it is very limited. I had to end up using some Aussie hardwood which is now aging just fine and not even looking like splintering.
Thanks for including me in the conversation though.
