Before fitting composite decking the material should be left for a minimum of 24 hours in the area it is to be fitted. The decking will expand and contract slightly in different weather conditions.
The surface colour will also fade slightly, (more so on light colours) but this will stabilize after the first 6 months. Composite decking can be worked with normal woodworking tools.A hand saw or chop saw is ideal for cutting the boards and joists to length. The composite decking must not be laid directly on the subfloor. Decking must be fixed to composite joists if installed over a flat solid sub-surface. If the decking needs to be raised then a timber frame can be installed first. The supporting base must be installed with a slight fall, (minimum 1/30) and ideally away from the property.
The water must be able to run along and down the length of the decking boards so it can drain off the ends. All supporting Joists should be installed in parallel lines at 90 degrees to the decking. All joists should be installed at even centres.If using composite joists, these should be fixed directly to a solid base using expansion joist screws or concrete haunches. Joists must be fixed in parallel lines with a 10mm spacing at either end of each joist. 2: Fixing Decking Boards To Composite or Wood Joists. Starter and T-piece decking clips should be used to hold the decking boards in place. Alternatively, boards can be screwed down through the deck surface making sure to maintain an even 6mm gap between all boards. All decking joints should also be staggered. Starter Clips are used to start the decking installation process & finish/lock the end planks into position. T-Clips are used between each decking board. Step two above shows a T-Clip being installed by offering each clip up to the decking boards and screwing in place with the stainless steel screw provided. The next decking board can then be slid up and tapped into position before repeating the process. The diagram on the right shows how a T-clip can also be slid between two decking boards and using a thin driver head, be screwed down to hold both board sides at once. All decking board ends and sides must all be fully supported and fixed down with starter clips or T-clips. All sides must be fixed down to each supporting joist. If the decking is screwed down, a suitable stainless steel counter sunk screw must be used on both sides and ends of each board into all supporting joists. T-Clips are designed to space the decking boards regularly but also allow for a small margin of expansion and contraction. All board ends must be fixed down and fully supported by a joist, (deck board ends should not overhang by more than 30mm at any point). Were two board ends meet two joists and four clips will be required, one joist and two clips for each board end, (do not use one T-clip to bridge two board ends).
A 10mm gap must be left between the end of the boards and any solid surface. Between boards Leave a 6mm gap to allow for expansion and contraction. 3: Edges / Trims / Finishing. Once all boards have been fixed in place, any uneven edges, exposed joists or step nosings can be finished using our composite skirting and L profiles.Skirting and L profiles can either be screwed or glued in place depending upon the fitting location. All our composite decking, trims and profiles are full-bodied meaning the colour runs through the material from top to bottom. This allows the material to be sanded to remove damage or refine any miss-cut edges or corners. Allow the decking 24 hours to acclimatise. Take weather conditions into account when allowing for expansion and contraction gaps. Install the decking with a fall along the length of the boards. Fully support and fix down all board ends with two fixings and one joist per end, (Double joist all joints). Keep decking clean and wash regularly for the first month with light detergent and rinse with fresh water. Support and fix down all board ends directly to supporting joists. Sand down any roughly cut edges with sandpaper.
Always make a pilot hole when screwing into any WPC material. Do not lay waterproof or airtight mats, covers or other flat objects directly onto the decking. Forget the decking will expand and contract so leave an appropriate gap at end of all boards.Lay/install the decking laying directly onto the subfloor. Install the decking completely flat. Install the decking on an uneven surface. Exceed the stated support frame centres. Power wash the decking above 30 Bar. Do not block the ends of the boards. Do not heat the surface, middle or underside of the boards. Q: Which composite decking range is better Active+ or Woodsman+? A: Both the Active+ and Woodsman+ composite boards are effectively the same product, with both being reversible and having the same dimensions.

The two designs of boards we supply can be supplied in Anthracite Grey, Charcoal, Chocolate Brown and Stone Grey. Q: How far apart should the supporting joists be? A: The supporting joists must be spaced 370mm apart and each end of the board must be supported with its own individual joist and clip (referred to in our instructions and the trade as a'Double Joist').Q: Do I need special tools to install the decking? A: There are no specialist tools required to install composite decking. Any competent DIY enthusiast or tradesman can install the decking as long as the fitting instructions are followed. Tough Decking has been supplying and installing composite decking for over 10 years. As we have got busier through the years, we have now become suppliers only of the product. We know how composite decking should be installed and from experience, know what size boards work when expansion and contraction from the weather come into play. Importantly, that is why we only supply 2.2 linear metre boards, as longer boards from tested experience, are unstable and hard to'hold back' or control in varying temperatures. The 2.2m board, encourages more joist supports and a staggered joint (brick effect). We pack each pallet and dispatch it from our depot in Totnes, Devon. We always take photo evidence of how the decking was packaged, in the unlikely event there is an issue with the order whilst in transit to you. Collections can be made from our depot in Totnes (Devon). All we ask is that you please arrange this in advance with us before attempting collection.
