Reeded Deck Board

A reeded deck board is distinctively characterized by its grooved or reeded design on one side. This not only imparts a unique aesthetic appeal but also offers practical benefits:

1. Anti-Slip Surface: The reeded texture provides a grip, making it less slippery when wet, enhancing safety.
2. Enhanced Drainage: The grooves channel away water, reducing the chances of water pooling on the surface.
3. Versatility: While the reeded side offers functionality, the flip side is often smooth, giving homeowners the flexibility to choose the preferred look.
4. Natural Aesthetic: The reeded design adds a tactile, organic texture, complementing outdoor environments.

Reversible Deck Board

A Reversible Deck Board is a uniquely designed decking plank with two distinct finishes on opposing sides. This means you can choose between two surface textures or designs by simply flipping the board during installation.

1. Versatility: The dual-finished design allows homeowners and builders to choose a texture that best suits their aesthetic or functional needs without buying separate boards.
2. Cost-Effective: Customers often find cost savings in product purchases and reduced wastage by offering two design choices in one board.

3. High-Quality: Like all products at ‘International Timber’, our Reversible Deck Boards are crafted to the highest standards, ensuring durability and longevity.

4. Easy Installation: The design simplifies the decking process, as one can change the deck’s appearance without the hassle of sourcing different boards.
