Our Process

There’s much more to building a deck than simply laying out timber boards. Try our unique Built by Softwoods in-home decking service. From start to finish, everything’s taken care of so you don’t need to lift a finger!

A timber deck designed and built by Softwoods can be virtually any shape or size. It can be built with different levels, include storage, built-in benches, and can even be cantilevered over steep slopes. Put simply, we can cover all options for new decking Melbourne homeowners desire.

The Softwoods team can come out to your property to discuss your plans. With all variables considered, we’ll use our design software to produce the council plans. We’ll submit them to your local council. Once approved, we’ll pick the relevant timber and hardware, deliver the materials and construct your decking in Melbourne.

The first step in the Built by Softwoods process (and perhaps the most important) is the in-home consultation. We come to your home, talk through your plans and help you realise the design you have in mind. We will carefully go through all the considerations that you might need to take into account for your design. We consider all variables so that we can use the appropriate timbers but keep your price as low as possible. We have a wide range of decking species available here at Softwoods, all at unbeatable prices. These include native and imported softwoods and hardwoods in a huge range of sizes. All timber is ethically sourced, selectively forested, and environmentally sound. As one of SA’s larger suppliers of timber, we’re in a position to seek the lowest possible prices from suppliers, which we pass to you.

Are you interested in seeing your project before you buy? We recommend that you try using our exclusive 3D design software. The Softwoods team have developed a proven computerised design system that will process your measurements, add any desired features and build your structure for you on-screen allowing you to see your project exactly as it will appear when completed – before you’ve spent a single cent. This clever system also counts every single piece of timber, nail and bolt that will be used in the structure, which means you’ll only pay for the materials you’re using, and nothing else. Since you’re undertaking an important project at your home, the least we can do is make it simple, honest and stress-free.
