Customer Questions & Answers

What will the 1x6 span between joist

Asked by: beachbuilder
The material is more flexible than wood, especially when warm. I wouldn't suggest spanning more than the standard 16-inch on center distance.

When laying down the deck and you come to the board that will have the exposed edge, there are two things that I am questioning

The two questions I have are: 1. I am assuming that where there is no board to fasten next to it, there is a special fastener that will attach to the joist and the underside of the deck board and not to the groove. Correct? 2. Along the exposed side of the deck (where there is no board to fasten next to it), if that grooved edge is left there exposed to the weather, will there be a problem with water or anything else getting in there and causing rot or mold? Is there a way to not have this groove along one of the edges so that you do not see it along the side of the deck?
Asked by: Craig
There is a special fastener you can get to fasten the end row. It fastens to the joist first and the clip curves up to grab the groove. Since the fastener goes down first, it's tricky to use. It's good for a starting row but difficult (at best) to use for an ending row. You can also get color matched screws and just fasten the starting and ending rows down with those and use the hidden fasteners for the other joints. Thats what I did. I've had my pergola up for 3 years and the exposed groove hasn't been a weathering problem in that time. I thought about putting gray caulk in there to disguise it some but figured it would make more mess than improvement. You can hide the groove and board ends under a fascia board. They're about a quarter-inch thick versions of the decking boards designed to go around the perimeter of a deck to neaten up the edges. Raise it to the height of the top of the deck boards and you can hide the edge of the deck planks.

Composite Decking - Paintability

There is no mention that these and similar products are paintable - only that they come primed or not. I would like to know which, if any composite decking boards are paintable.
Asked by: JBN
They are not intended to be painted, their color is molded in. I'd hate to try it, I think you't have a hard time bonding with the slick plastic surface unless you had some paint intended for painting plastic (I think Krylon has some verion of plastic paint). My fears aside, Trex says you can do it with specific stains.

Customer Reviews

ArmorGuard 1 in. x 5-1/4 in. x 12 ft. Nantucket Gray Grooved Edge Capped Composite Decking Board is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to work with I just completed a 12'x14' deck surface with this product. This is a fairly standard composite material, wood "flour" mixed with recycled plastics, that has been "capped" on three sides with a thicker all-plastic layer. This plastic layer is supposed improve water resistance by sealing the top and sides and thus increase the mold, mildew & stain resistance. The bottom of each single-sided board is not capped with plastic. Early reviews of these newer capped boards suggest they should wear longer than traditional all composite materials. Of course, since I just completed my project there's no way to review that aspect. I did think the material cut easily and smoothly and even ripping the 12 foot board down its length was relatively painless. I used the Trex "universal" hidden fasteners with this installation, they're half the price of the Veranda brand but are nylon and not the stainless of the Veranda brand. I also used the Veranda AG gray stainless screws for the border boards and they sank smoothly and recessed easily. On the whole, I'm pleased with the product. Now it's time to see how it holds up in the fierce Colorado sunshine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good when finished Used the Veranda Armor Guard product for the first time. The hidden fasteners worked well and was quicker than the face screws. The problem with the decking was the bottoms were corrougated, so you have to cover the ends or put up with an industrial look. We used the 11" fascia for this, butting one piece under the decking and a small 2 1/2" strip to cover the ends of the decking. One the stairs, we just let the cut ends show as there wasn't a good way to hide the ugly ends. On the plus side, the deck boards didn't seem to stain and some even came with their own oily stain which wiped right off. I wonder though, what that product will be like when it's covered with snow and ice/frost? I have already warned the homeowner about this as I read the caution on another review. I'm not sure if I would used this decking again because of the end profile problem. If they made a solid board, the installation would be simpler and save a few steps and some money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Composite Deck Boards I used these composite deck boards on a small deck project. They are comprised of a composite material with three sides laminated with a thin colored vinyl material. The vinyl lamination resists stains, mildew and the manufacturer says it won't fade. The deck boards are easy to cut. One criticism is that the bottom of the boards have a corrugated profile so the ends of the boards look bad. I solved this problem by mitering (like a picture frame) boards around the outside of the deck and the stairs which not only looks great but covers the ends of the field boards. (see picture) To keep the mitered ends from pulling up above each other I routed a groove in the angled end of each facing board and inserted a spline that I cut from the same material. I added some polyurethane glue to the spline before inserting it into the grooves. Overall, I would recommend this composite deck board. It looks great and is easy to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great material recently installed this decking..matches the house perfectly..easy to maintain.used the 10 off 50 coupons from lowes and got a great deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Those boards are as advertised. I installed them with the hidden fasteners. Some here critized that there are a number of butted end fasteners they didn't need. Those fasteners can all be used as "normal" fasteners, only those few additional ones can serve an additional purpose. I skipped every second rafter and alternated the fasteners to save $$$ on the fasteners. That worked very well for me.
