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

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The maximum joist spacing is 16 inches on center if you install the boards perpendicular to the joists, and 12 inches if they are installed on a diagonal.

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?

Answer: 
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 Read More
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. Read Less

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting us with your questions. The start/ stop fasteners can be used to secure the deck from underneath by screwing to the bottom of the deck board and sideways to the joist. To not have the outside groove showing, you may either picture frame the deck surface with non-grooved boards, or you may install the fascia even with the deck surface to hide the cuts and grooves.

Answer: 
A linear foot of it is (5.25/12) or 0.4375 square feet. If you plan for an 1/8th inch gap between boards, then it's (5.375/12) = .448 square feet per linear foot.
480 square feet / .448 = 1071.4 linear feet. That's 90 boards at 12 feet each.
The amount you need can vary with the dimensions of the deck. You don't want to piece the ends together with a bunch of 6-inch cut-off pieces 'cause you got a Read More

The amount you need can vary with the dimensions of the deck. You don't want to piece the ends together with a bunch of 6-inch cut-off pieces 'cause you got a funny shape.
Like most things, I'd add around 10% for waste and cutting and probably buy ~95 boards (you can return them if they're undamaged and you bought too many). Don't forget edging and fasteners. They add up quickly. I used the nylon fasteners from Trex and was pleased with the results. For my edging I just used more deck boards rather than the thin stuff sold as edging.
You'll need some pan-head screws, too, for areas that the hidden fasteners aren't effective. I used the Verdana ones to get the color match right.

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.

We do not recommend painting the ArmorGuard Capped Composite Decking. Paint typically will not adhere to composite decking and will eventually peel.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 27, 2012

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 3, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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.
