This is opinion varies per customer and the easiest way to determine this would be to place a sample in the most direct sun light available for testing. Please visit the website below in order to have your sample sent to you. https://www.newtechwood.com/contact/
We sell the 8ft boards individually but not the 16 ft boards.
Hi, Larry. Each board of 16 feet covers about 7.27 square feet, so this 49 pack of 16 foot boards covers about 356.36 square feet. We also recommend about 10% overage in calculating your need. Please reach out to inquiry@newtechwood, if you have any other questions, or for further clarification.
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.
Hi, if you mean that the board can be cut, yes that, is correct. The boards can be cut. However, it would not rip easily, and would require a saw to cut. If you have any further questions, please email us at email@example.com.
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.
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, the boards have to be installed 16 inches on center, maximum.
Hi. We appreciate your interest in NewTechWood. Yes, you are welcome to use our deck boards as lateral fencing in a metal fence post. Please keep in mind that the span of your metal post has to be able to hold the boards.. Please also keep in mind that the boards will contract and expand so accordingly adjust the lengths used, based on the location this is being installed.
