How much does the 49 bundle weigh
I used 2.5 inch composite T-20 Deckmate deck screws. Be prepared to go through a lot of bits, which are amazingly not available loose or in bulk through HD. The shoulder on these bits is very small making it very VERY difficult to set the screw depth correctly, but they are your only choice. Longer screws will devour bits. Shorter ones won't hold. I went through 30 t-20 bits and about 30 lbs of screws on a 16x30 deck.
Composite deck board is in no way real wood. This product is made by stuffing a combination of dyed wood and plastic resin into a colored casing much like a sausage is made. Then the casing is forced through an extruder to shape the boards with texture on both sides. The boards are very dense, but not particularly tough. They scratch and chip easily compared to real wood but are otherwise maintenance free.
Hi, the Community Answer is correct. The deck boards would be placed over a wooden frame. Composite boards cannot be used as a frame as they are not structurally strong enough. However, by using composite boards over a wood frame rather than wooden deck boards over a wooden frame, you would still save time and money in maintenance over an all wood frame and deck. They would also confer some protection from the elements in covering the wood frame.

Around 356 square feet. It doesn't come out evenly when calculated.
Hi, the Community Answer is correct. You will need to order any hardware or accessories needed separately.
Hi, the boards have to be installed 16 inches on center, maximum.
Hello NewOrleans. We estimate that NewTechWood material can hold weight of around 1000 pounds per square foot. If you have any further questions please contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi, Tim. Yes, you can use hidden fasteners for steps. Please see our installation guide here: https://www.newtechwood.com/pdf/Decking-Installation.pdf, pages 12-13. The material does retain some heat, as is normal for all composite material. We would recommend using lighter tones if this may be an issue. The weight per foot varies by board type. For the solid Cortes series, it is 2.5 lbs/foot. Once an order is placed, you can expect to receive it within a 2 week lead time, but could be sooner depending on your location. Please feel free to reach out after 24-48 hours (1-2 business days) after your order has been placed, for a more precise estimated delivery time. Please email inquiry@newtechwood,com for further clarification, or if you have any other questions.
We sell the 8ft boards individually but not the 16 ft boards.
