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.

Can this product be on stairs? I don't see a stair tread option.

Asked by: Kim
Thank you for your question. The grooved deck boards are not approved for stair treads, but the non-grooved square edge boards can be. They are typically available as an 8' option in the stock color in the store, or in a 20' length by special order.

Is the Veranda AmourGuard Nantucket Grey available in non-grooved pieces? 16' long. I don't want the groove to show on the exposed edges.

ArmorGuard 1 in. x 5-1/4 in. x 12 ft. Nantucket Gray Grooved Edge Capped Composite Decking Board is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product does look very nice and with the hidden Veranda clips, no screw heads and it is fair... This product does look very nice and with the hidden Veranda clips, no screw heads and it is fairly easy to install. Cleans easy, no splinters, no painting. The boards are priced okay as compared to other similar products and with no painting they are reasonably priced. Those are the good things and why I did recommend the product. But there are down sides to this product: 1 - First I did use the Veranda brand clips and screws and they are very expensive 2 - About 1/3 of the 16 foot long boards were warped, so I had to use claps to hold each board against the last board as I screwing them down to keep the spacing even. Not a huge deal, but it's more difficult than the video I watched showing a two guys screwing them down with ease 3 - They are slippery when wet, so be careful 4 - The biggest down side of this product is how soft the finish it. Don't drop anything sharp or heavy on it, IT WILL leave a mark and/or scratch the surface. If the surface finish was a little harder and more resistant to scratching, I would give it a solid 4 stars, but I just cannot do that. To get the 5th star, all the boards would need to be straight and I shouldn't feel I got robbed buying the Veranda bland clips and screws. But it does look very nice!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from "25 Year Warranty" is a joke. Awful customer service. DONT BUY! Do not buy Veranda (Fiberon) decking. It is atrocious. Ours started to fade after about 2.5 years and I opened a warranty claim which was denied. It was denied although NO ONE from the company ever spoke to me over the phone. They are an awful company. DO NOT BUY!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING BOARDS EXCELLENT QUALITY. You get what you pay for!!! Hello, I just finished installing 16x24 deck using these veranda armorguard 16ft boards. They have the grooves on each side so I used the fasteners as well so no screws are actually drilled into these boards. I did not use the metal fasteners because they were $50 a box and I would need 8 boxes of them which is very expensive. Online they have Internet # 202757161. They are plastic clips with stainless steel black screws. 500 of them were $144, I had to buy 700 screws for 16x24 deck. They look very nice and seem very durable and strong. See my pictures. Everything was purchased from home depot. The railings are the pro rail railings and stair kit. The vinyl sleeves are 4x4x39''. The caps and bottom trim pieces are the new england style. If you have any questions let me know I would be happy to help. It took me a while to figure out all the items I needed but it looks great now and Im happy with the work. I also used veranda cellular PVC boards in white to cover the pressure treated wood around the deck. They are $20 for 8ft piece and they work great because they are almost 12 inches wide so they covered a lot. Looks very clean and they are durable. I believe in you get what you pay for. Material is very expensive nowadays but I did not want to use pressure treated and have to worry about staining and splinters. This is a lifetime deck. Spend the extra money now and save time and money from staining every year. Thanks and Goodluck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product with some reservations I recently replaced the old treated pine boards on my 500+ square feet deck with Verandah Armorguard boards in Nantucket Grey. Our deck was built in 1985, so it doesn’t owe us a thing, but the surface was starting to break down and really couldn’t be painted over or fixed . A few years ago I replaced just the worst boards, but now all of them were the worst. I wrestled with replacing the old boards with pine, cedar and composite, but after quite a lot of research, composite made the most sense. They are clearly more expensive, but the advantages are also very clear. Of all the options out there Verandah Armorguard seemed to have the best reviews, so I went with them. They are very good, and I think they will still be there when my grandkids are grown up. The color was nicely balanced across the boards and they were easy to cut. What’s not so good is that the boards have some of the issues of wood: 1. the ends are not always square – on probably half the boards I had to cut the ends square before I fit them or cut them to length. 2. They are almost all “bananas” which require quite a lot of force to get them to sit straight against the adjoining board. It’s absolutely critical that you get the first board in dead straight and then force the next one into position before fixing it in place. I had to have three helpers (sons and wife) on 16 foot boards several times because I couldn’t hold it in place and drive the screws at the same time. So this is not something you can do alone. 3. On one board the groove where the fasteners go was too thin to accept the fastener, so I had to use it against the house. Not a big deal, but annoying. 4. On a couple of boards the wood grain stamping was "off", kind of bubbly and the color was uneven. Due to time constraints I had to use one of these boards rather than return it, but it's something to be aware of. One other thing to remember if you are going over old joists – spend some time getting them all level. Unlike wood, composite bends up and down easily so it follows small imperfections in level. I chose to use the hidden fasteners made by Invisi Fast, with ¼ inch gap, which are not specifically designed to work with Verandah boards, in order to save some money. I don’t know if I would do that again. The gap ended up a little wider than ¼, due to final fitting, so I’d use a smaller size next time, maybe 5/32. They do work well and are very simple, but you have to align them all one-by-one and then push the board into place, hold it firm and then screw them down. Fiddly work which definitely requires helpers! The Verandah fasteners might work better, but I’m not sure. The one great thing about the Invisi Fast ones is that you can easily remove one or two boards if you ever need to. It would be a good idea to get a small box of each type of fastener and a couple of boards to practice on before you get the whole order. Yes it costs more, but you save so much by doing the work yourself that it’s money well spent on your education and using the right product will save you time and money in the long run. Overall the finished result is very nice, a little spongy underfoot unlike the old 2 x 6 pine. Some lessons learned about installation technique and the realization that composite boards might last forever, but they still require some wrangling to fit properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great two years later. We had our two-level deck built by a licensed builder. It is constructed of pressure treated lumber framing, with gray Armorguard decking and fascia. The builder saved a few bucks on the clips by buying the Fiberon brand from another lumber yard, but otherwise, all the materials were part of the Veranda Armorguard suite. Unlike the reviewer who said the cut surfaces were a different color from the skin, the gray material color is the same all the way through. The design, color scheme (gray deck, black railings, and black light posts at the corners - which I made from pressure treated), look great together. The deck has received raves from guests, and tradesmen we've had doing other jobs around the house. I power washed it a couple of months ago, and it looks fresh and new - really nice after two years. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice look Had a nice size pool deck done with this color and it looks beautiful. Used the hidden fasteners for a cleaner look. It has only been a few months but looks great and cost less than Trex and not much more than pressure treated wood option.

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.
