We completed this project as owner builders because we wanted to ensure we could make decisions along the way and end up with a home to be proud of. Finding people like Mortlock Timber Group makes all the difference and whilst I obtained quotes from other businesses, none compared on the quality of the product or service. The feedback from visitors is one of “wow” because people see lots of decks, but you helped us build something that stands out as unique with the large boards and concealed fixings. As you know we were under immense pressure to get our house additions finished prior to Xmas, with a number of functions planned for our house including arrival of interstate friends. The install of the deck needed to be done before we could move to completion of other parts of the project and our Carpet installer left at 4pm Christmas Eve. Whilst we cut it fine, we made it! We really appreciate your assistance throughout this. - Allan Shaw – Owner Builder.
Originally the cladding specified by the architects for the Studio was simple Fibre Cement. Part of the way through the build the builder recommended I view some buildings with Mortlock Cladding. I very much liked the wood cladding, but felt that Jarrah would be too dark for the studio. So, I contacted Mortlock, and they advised me that they could supply Pacific Teak. I did a bit of research on the material, and felt that it would be very nice.
We ordered the Teak, and it arrived very promptly, which was helpful to keep the build on schedule. The Teak was a very beautiful fawn colour, and we were hesitant to oil it. However, the plan had been to provide it with a layer of linseed oil (boiled by myself in a crock pot), and diluted with gum turps. The linseed oil soaked in very well, and gave the timber a nice honey colour.
The builder and his workers commented on how nice the product was to work with, and that it cut beautifully and the planks were extremely uniform and well made.
Every person who has seen the building has immediately commented on the beauty of the wood cladding, and I am very pleased with it myself.
I also think the timber is a very worthwhile investment, as it has definitely increased the beauty of the building and its value. The cost of the timber above the cost of the original Fibre Cement cladding was really only marginal especially when you take into account the follow up work required to prep and paint the fibre cement.
The team at Mortlock have been very helpful and have a “can do” attitude and their response has been almost immediate. We highly recommend them, and we love the wood. - Jesse Searls – Founder of the Surreal Foundry & Cycleworks.

We found that unlike traditional decking, the secret deck fixing from Mortlock Timber produced a better looking and better quality finished deck that is free from unsightly nails. The secret fix was less labour intensive to install and easier to maintain for our clients. The guys at Mortlock Timber were very informative and knowledgeable on their products, and this gives us the confidence in supplying our clients with their quality products in the future – Ascher Smith, Landscape Architect
The Jarrah decking supplied was an excellent product and we are really happy with the end result – Guy Boudville, Builder
The selection and location of materials for this home are chosen to transition from inside to outside. The soft bleached appeal is reminiscent of beach weathered timber – this feel is continued through to the casual entertaining deck, and pool deck. The jarrah boards are left bare to weather and grey. The secret fixed system by Mortlock allows for a clean and contemporary feel, while the wide board section provides a durable and robust material – Dervla McCarey, Architect
Just letting you know mate that the timber was fantastic!! It looks amazing – Shane Roberts, Perth WA
