Traditional Vs Composite Fencing

When it comes to fencing supplies and material, consumers are spoilt for choice. Not only is there a wide range of timber species to choose from, but also have a variety of composite materials as well. Whether you’re looking to upgrade you tired-looking deck or planning on installing a new structure from scratch; deciding between different fencing materials can be tough.

Traditional timber has been a popular choice for construction projects for many years, however as the world moves towards eco-consciousness, the need for sustainable building materials have risen.  Despite timber being the traditional option, it hasn’t always been the most practical and affordable one. With composite fencing supplies offering less maintenance and higher durability, it is easy to see why this question exists.

Traditional Timber

– Timber fencing is cheaper to purchase.

– It is a versatile material with plenty of traditional and rustic appeal. This can be achieved through staining and luxurious paint jobs to create different colours, textures and styles.

– It’s an easy material to work with. Traditional timber can be cut, shaped, sanded back, stained or painted.

– Easy to Change – if the timber is damaged to you feel like something different, it’s easy to change in the future.

– Timber is naturally recurring and therefore a renewable source.

Is traditional timber the choice for you? Gowan Lea Timbers are the Sunshine Coast’s premium timber suppliers.

Our History

Fencing Supplies

We began Gowan Lea Timbers over 25 years ago when we decided to open a small retail yard for timber needs on the rapidly growing Sunshine Coast of Queensland. We started with two staff members, a forklift, a flat-bed truck, and an office in a shipping container, and as we grew, we gained a solid reputation for boasting the best hardwood around. 

It didn’t take us by surprise. Our mill—Gowan Lea Sawmilling Company—had been operating for over 40 years and was already a well-respected wholesaler of premium quality western QLD Spotted Gum and Ironbark products. However, when the Queensland State Government bought out and closed Gowan Lea Sawmilling Company through a Regional Forestry Agreement process in 2007, the retail timber yard was left without a supply of the premium hardwood that our business relied upon.

It was then we entered into a productive relationship with Mary Valley Timbers, a green hardwood sawmill near Gympie, who had a similar focus on quality and cut 95% Spotted Gum and Ironbark.
