Clients Steve and Jane invited Futurewood to discuss decking options to replace four existing hardwood decks on their beachfront home in Papamoa. The existing timber deck had been in service for many years but showed signs of age and the effects of the harsh sand and salt environment. The deck colour had become darkened due to the required ongoing staining and repair work done over the years.

Steve and Jane wanted to brighten up the deck areas and ideally with a product that would offer low maintenance, with no painting or the need to tighten screws on a regular basis. They looked forward to a deck to relax and enjoy the fantastic sea views and the beach lifestyle. Steve and Jane evaluated several material options settling on Futurewood Composite Decking as the best solution for them.

They felt Futurewood offered many advantages including:

  • Resistance to sand and salt spray damage
  • Environmentally safe boards containing no VOC's - an ideal alternative to cutting down living forests
  • Availability of a selected range of colours including a colour that suited their environment
  • Easy to clean - just wash, it's done and it's time to relax again

They were also impressed with the clear instruction manual and the support their builder received from the Futurewood team and surprised at how cost-effective Futurewood was when compared to other systems, including wood.

Steve and Jane selected Ash Grey as the colour as it offered a natural flow from the light coloured indoor floorboards to the light sand of the beach.

Paul Dent of PRD Construction installed the decks. This was the first Futurewood deck Paul had installed and after a bit of guidance from the team at Futurewood, he had it finished in no time.

The finished job is a credit to Paul and his team. They developed the ideas from their clients and transformed their vision into a beautiful living deck. The deck has had many favourable comments from friends and family leading to more work for Paul and his team.
