FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW FAR APART DOES THE JOIST NEED TO BE?

16″ joist spacing is acceptable due to the end matching and strength of our lumber. The hidden fastener system will ensure proper spacing between boards and will maintain a uniform appearance for the life of your deck.

WITH THE WOOD RETAIN ITS COLOUR?

All wood naturally ages to a beautiful patina grey colour due to the UV effects of the sun. The rich brown walnut colour will come back easily if treated with a clear oil based stain.

WILL THE BOARDS ON MY DECK CHECK?

Yes. As a natural product, the decking may show signs of slight surface checks. These checks do not affect the strength and durability of the boards, and can actually enhance the character of the deck over time.

WHAT IS THE DECK'S AVERAGE LIFESPAN?

The average lifespan is a minimum of 25 years, but tests show it will far out-perform this period.
