Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @GeorgeSpyrou. We're so pleased that you've joined us. 

 

Let me tag @redracer01, @Adam_W , and @MitchellMc who should be able to give you advice. In the meantime, could you tell us a bit more about the surface that you're building the deck on? You might also be interested in this video that covers off how to build a deck. Feel free to let us know if you have any other questions. We're here to help.

Hi @GeorgeSpyrou,

 

You'll need to use structural timber for your bearers, and that is available in H3 treated outdoor framing. Since this is H3 treated and not suitable for use on dirt, you'll need to have it supported above the surface on post supports or H4 posts.

 

Please let me know if you need further information or have questions.
