IMPORTANT FACTORS FOR A SUCCESSFUL INSTALL
Carefully review and follow the installation instructions and videos provided below. It’s a good idea to print the instructions and keep them handy during installation.
Hybrid-engineered composite decking will expand and contract as temperatures change. To minimize potential failure resulting from these movements, avoid installing your decking in extreme temperatures. The ideal installation temperature is 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
A gap of at least 3/16” must be provided where deck boards meet a house or other obstruction. That 3/16” gap must also be provided on each side of posts and other obstructions.
Use genuine Green Bay Decking fasteners, or equivalent.
All fasteners must be located a minimum of 3/4” from the ends of the deck boards. Additionally, any necessary face fasteners should be placed near the deck board structural septum, but not directly through the septum. Avoid over penetration of the fastener heads.
As with any manufactured decking product, be aware of conditions where reflective heat buildup from “Low-E” glass may cause damage to your deck.
