  • Any mild household cleaner can be used to remove stains.
  • Using a power washer yearly will help remove any surface stains that may accumulate over time from regular deck usage.
  • A wire brush may be used to remove scratches and tough stains. Using a wire brush may change the appearance of the deck product where the wire brush was used.

How should I fasten my deck?

  • #7, #8 or #9 stainless steel or coated, non-composite trim-head screw should be used.
  • All deck boards require a 2 1/4″ or longer screws.
  • Commercial board, perimeter strip, and feature strip require 3″ or longer screws.
  • All fasteners must be located a minimum of 3/4″ from the ends and edges of the deck boards to avoid damage.

Do my boards need to be spaced?

  • Proper gapping must be provided throughout the deck installation. A gap of 1/8″ should be provided where the deck board meets a wall and a 3/16″ gap should be provided where the deck board meets a post or other object.

Can I use salt to remove ice from my Green Bay Decking products?

  • It is safe to use ice removal products such as sodium chloride and calcium chloride on Green Bay Decking products. When the ice melts after using salt, there may be a white residue that remains on the deck. This residue can be removed with a light cleaning or naturally with a rain shower.
  • Do not use a metal shovel on Green Bay Decking products. Instead, use a plastic shovel to remove any snow to prevent potential damage to the product.
