Installation

Green Decking can be easily installed and worked with just like timber products. It can be sawn, drilled and routed using standard wood working tools. In addition Green Decking is free of knots and grains which allows for easy fixing, easy matching and clean straight lines that give an elegant clean finish. Not only is Green Decking WPC composite decking cheaper than hard woods like Merbau, it is quicker and easier to install, saving you further time and money. And when the installation is complete, just sit back, relax and enjoy the ongoing minimal maintenance knowing that not a single beautiful or endangered rainforest tree has been cut down for your deck.

**Please note. Composite decking expands and contracts with the seasons like all outdoor surfaces and like all decks, must have good ventilation underneath. PLEASE remember to allow 15mm expansion gaps around all solid structures, 5mm gaps for butt joins (although breaker boards are preferred) and 5mm gaps between side by side boards. FLOOR JOISTS NEED TO BE SPACED AT 450mm CENTRES MAX (as at 1/1/2016 due to decking strength improvements) prior to this date 350mm (as per installation steps) was recommended. Please also note we do not recommend installing Green Decking during extreme temperatures, due to the expansion of the boards in high temperatures.
