Residential deck "The Sound of Music"
This private terrace is located near the Austrian city of Graz. The homeowner chose Kebony wood for the terrace to ensure that it would provide long-term use and enjoyment, a guarantee made by many decking products that doesn't always hold true.
Installing a new terrace is both time-consuming and expensive. Choosing durable materials can help homeowners avoid the repeated costs of maintenance, repair and reinstallation. When planning for this project, wood-plastic composite (WPC) options were quickly eliminated due to the unnatural look, tendency to overheat in the summer and becoming too slippery when wet.
Instead, the homeowner chose to pursue a material that provided both a natural and comforting aesthetic – making Kebony an easy choice. As it’s exposed to sun and weathering, the eco-friendly wood will transition from a deep brown color to a beautiful silver-gray patina, all while keeping its low-maintenance durability.
