A few (of the many) reasons to go with Softwoods!

We are your One Stop Shop

Instead of running around organising and fetching all the components for your jobs, why not make it simple and visit Softwoods’ one stop shop? Let us design and price your quote (using our exclusive engineering software), create a take-off, prepare Council plans, obtain Council approval and deliver all your materials (timber, hardware, roofing, metalgoods, concrete, polycarbonate).

We provide you with one point of contact (who’ll be familiar with you and your job), and we’re confident you won’t experience our level of genuine service anywhere else.

Great Value – we won’t be beaten on quality, price or service

While we pride ourselves on exceptional service, we’re pleased to be able to provide it at a competitive price. Since we buy large quantities of timber we can afford to pass the savings we enjoy on to you – helping you maintain your profit margins whilst offering your clients an attractive price.

Impress your clients with professional images to accompany your quotes

Once you’ve given us your clients’ measurements and we’ve used our exclusive engineering software to design the structure, we’ll print (or email) a professional system-generated perspective drawing you can present to your client. The best bit? This is a free service for Softwoods trade customers, and we don’t even need to know your client’s details (at this point).

Accurate take-offs, plans & pricing

Provide us with measurements and we’ll use our exclusive web-based design system to draw 3D plans and take-offs – complete with pricing – for your entire project. It’s quick, easy, reliable, and will literally save you hours. What’s more, it’s exclusive to approved Softwoods trade customers.

Hassle-free council approval

Softwoods can handle your council approval if you need us to, which means we’ll create the plans, complete the application and submit it on your behalf. We will even follow it up and deal with any issues that arise throughout the process – saving you time and energy. You also have the option of submitting your own Council applications if you’d like. If the structure has a gable roof we have specific engineering that will need to be submitted by us on your behalf.

SA’s widest range of decking sizes, varieties and lengths

If it’s decking boards you’re after, make Softwoods the first place you look. We stock a huge range of sizes, varieties (Merbau, Kapur, premium treated pine, Jarrah, Spotted Gum, Tallowwood, Blackbutt, Ironwood, ACQ treated pine and more) and lengths, as well as Australian and ethically-sourced imported hardwoods. All of our range comes in a wide array of widths and lengths and if you’re after anything we don’t have in stock, we’ll get it for you – and guarantee a terrific price.

Full range of screening materials, hardwoods and premium grade pine

Since screening is more prone to weather and ageing than most pergolas and decks, it’s important it’s made of quality materials. With that in mind, we’ve developed our range of screening materials in a wide array of sizes and varieties to suit any project, and we have a framing service to save you time on-site if desired.

All sizes and lengths in dressed F7 treated pine and LOSP

We carry a huge range of stock, both dressed and LOSP. From MGP10 framing timber to structural pine in any size or length in white and H2 blue. We also have a full range of sleepers, palings and rounds – you can be sure we’ve got it at Softwoods.

Vast range of competitively-priced hardware PLUS full timber painting service

In addition to our range of timber, we have all of the hardware you need to work with it. Every bracket, bolt, joist hanger or post shoe you could ever need available at fantastic prices in each of our stores.

It’s no secret that painting a pergola can be incredibly time-consuming. Let us take this burden out of your hands with our full painting – and staining – service, allowing you to focus on the build, and your client.

Drive-through service

All of our stores have been designed to make it easy for you to drive in, pick up what you need and drive out. We know your time is valuable, so we’ve created the most streamlined experience we can – no delays loading up, and no need to lift any timber over distances.

Complete pre-cut gable kits available

Our design system enables us to fully pre-cut gabled structures. If you provide us with precise measurements, we’ll cut every piece of the structure’s timber to an exact length and angle (except for post lengths), saving you time on site, and helping you build your structures with a minimum of fuss – and perfect results – every time.

Exceptional communication – always

At Softwoods, we’re committed to open and honest communication with our customers – that means you. Whenever an issue arises (and we hope it won’t), we’ll call you right away to discuss the situation, we’ll fix any problems and we’ll earn your trust. Your business is important to us and we’ll do everything we can to ensure working together is a rewarding experience.

Locally owned and operated

South Australian-owned and operated for more than 30 years, Softwoods has local expertise many of our competitors do not. We know the preferences of particular councils, we know site locations inside out and we know our market, all of which has helped us become a better supplier to you.

Open 7 days a week at 3 convenient locations

You never know when you might need design help, advice on a last-minute quote or extra materials…that’s why we’re open seven days. If you deal with Softwoods, you’ll never be caught out. And on the off chance you need something for your project we don’t have in stock, we’ll source and deliver it for you – no run around required.
