Hello. how does this color and material hold up against Chicago summer sun?

Asked by Amro April 1, 2021

Answer

I think the color will hold up just fine. I'm in utah and my grandma is in Arizona and in both locations it's held up very well. It will get hot but not any hotter than wood does.

How many boards do I need to cover an 18'x10' deck?

Asked by Faith February 7, 2021

How many boards to cover a 24' X 17' deck (boards running the long dimension)?

Asked by Joseair February 3, 2021
2

Can you use Camo Deck Screws?

Asked by Joe January 25, 2021
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. If you are asking if screws can be installed on an angle into the side of the board, the answer is no. We do not recommend any side angle fastening systems as they only insert thru a very small cross section of the material and can crack the decking over time as it undergoes thermal expansion and contraction cycles.

Great product but a bit overpriced
This product is awesome, I tried to beat up a few scrap pieces to scratch them up and even bent some pretty harshly and they held up. I think durability is the biggest feature here. I soaked them, and they are not slippery, all the reviews of people saying they fell and slipped are probably drinking while working on their deck. Only reason for 4 stars is the boards being $28 a piece. When comparing to order brands carried by Lowe’s, these are $11 more a piece. And both offer same warranty and features. Only reason I went here and paid $1,900 for the boards is due to color. It was worth it for me personally. These boards do expand more than real wood, so using the hidden fasteners a 3/16” gap is a must! Dont bother using deck screws, use hidden fasteners! Screws dont do well on these boards, its a wax like material and the screw leaves a swell. Only way around this is to pre drill with a countersink bit. Save yourself the time and use hidden fasteners. These do get warm with direct sun light so take that into consideration.

The young man working at Home Depot told us he could not cut this for us because it would gunk up the saw. So we brought home long pieces hanging out of the back of the car. My husband used his chop saw and got a nice clean cut. The blade of the saw did not look gunked up at all. We did not use this for decking. Instead, we used it to cover some deteriorating cement steps. We cleaned and smoothed the surface of the steps as well as possible, then put down the decking boards with construction adhesive. We weighed down the boards with cement blocks so the adhesive would fully stick. Now we have smooth nice steps to walk down instead of unsightly crumbling ones. These boards have a grain so they are not slippery, which is good when it's raining or snowing. They are expensive but worth it, when you consider that you don't have to stain, seal, etc.

The color looks great, cutting the boards was easy and simple with the right blade for my circular saw, installing was also simple with the Trex hideaway fasteners or clips so I didn’t have to drill into boards. Overall I’m very pleased by product only suggestion for company is going forward it would be great if they could make interior of product to match the color of exterior so that the ends don’t look a different color even after cutting.

We used the product for our small porch addition. We wanted to use a composite product that didn't make the project cost prohibitive. I was and continue to be impressed by it. These boards are comparable in price to other entry level composite decking but the variation of color and appearance far exceeds the others. The next level up in pricing is at about $10-$15 more per board. We used the hidden fasteners which I agree with others is overpriced (more expensive than the Trex fasteners). We had a contractor build our porch so I can't speak to the ease of installation but he didn't have any negative feedback. Super easy to clean; just a deck brush, soap and water. I'm giving four stars because it is newly completed. Overall, I really like the product and hope it stands the test of time and maybe we'll use it when it's time to build our deck.

This composite decking was fairly simple to put down with the connectors, and I think it really makes my deck look great! The only negative to report is that most of the boards were not cut square from the manufacturer, so we had to make some more cuts and use more boards than originally expected. However, with the boards being available in store it was not a big deal to just grab more.

Love Our New Deck!
bought 9 of these to build the deck off of our master bedroom. They all fit in my 08 impala! seem durable as heck, and built to last. had to use a impact drill to screw this beast down though (cordless Ryobi didn't work well). Deck looks amazing and believe it will last for many years to come. circular saw cut these no problem.
