 DECKING INSTALLATION, MAINTENANCE & GUIDELINES

Installation is easy. You use the same tools and fasteners when installing EVERGRAIN as you would when installing natural wood, so there's no extra work or time involved.

Special care should be taken when handling EVERGRAIN decking products. Because they are heavier and more flexible than wood, do not attempt to lift or carry more than you can handle safely at one time.

Important EVERGRAIN™ Product Information


Working With EVERGRAIN
Decking

EVERGRAIN™ decking material outperforms traditional wood board products and can be installed using the tools and techniques common with the installation of natural wood boards.

Installation Requirements

bullet

Requires no special tools.

bullet

Can be installed using pneumatic tools.

bullet

Provides a consistent fastening surface without knots or weak spots.

bullet

Works with most fasteners.

bullet

Saws, drills, and nails just like traditional wood.

bullet

Will not split or splinter when applied according to manufacturer's instructions.

Storage of EVERGRAIN Decking

Diagram of EVERGRAIN StorageEVERGRAIN™ products should be stored only on a rigid flat surface. When stacking EVERGRAIN™ products use vertically aligned supports beginning at each end and spaced no more than 24 inches apart throughout the length of the product.

Safely Handling EVERGRAIN Decking

The manufacturing process used to produce EVERGRAIN
decking creates a product that is heavier and more flexible than traditional wood products. Use care and do not attempt to lift or carry more EVERGRAIN decking material than you can safely handle at one time. Proper clothing and safety glasses should be worn at all times when working with EVERGRAIN decking.

Determination of the effectiveness, suitability, and safety of any application or use of EVERGRAIN decking is solely the responsibility of the Owner and/or Contractor. Building code regulations vary, and the Owner and/or Contractor should consult local building and safety codes for specific requirements prior to the application of EVERGRAIN™ products.

Cutting EVERGRAIN Decking

The unique design of EVERGRAIN
decking eliminates concern over grain direction, knots, and soft spots. When working with EVERGRAIN™ products, saw blades and router bits with Carbide tips are recommended. For best results, use saw blades with two (2) teeth per inch. To avoid clogging when drilling holes in EVERGRAIN decking, frequently remove shavings by removing the drill bit from the hole.

Spacing EVERGRAIN Decking

Diagram of Spacing DistanceEVERGRAIN
decking will expand and contract with changes in temperature. The amount of expansion and contraction will vary depending upon board size. Smaller boards will expand less and larger board sizes will expand more. When installing EVERGRAIN decking, side-to-side spacing should be a minimum of 1/8" between adjacent boards.

* When installing decking boards, end-to-end spacing between them should be approximately 1/16" for every 20° increment of temperature difference between the temperature during installation and the maximum expected summertime temperature in your area. Example: 80° F at time of installation and a maximum expected summertime temperature of 100° F equals an end-to-end gap spacing of 1/16".
 

Fastening EVERGRAIN Decking

EVERGRAIN™  decking can be fastened by screws, nails, pneumatic fasteners or one of many concealed fastening systems available. The fastening decision is solely the responsibility of contractor, installer or homeowner. EVERGRAIN™ does not recommend or endorse any specific fastening system. Like wood, pre-drilling the end/edges of the board is necessary to avoid splitting or cracking the material. Skirting should be fastened with 3 fasteners every 8" on a solid surface for best results.

To receive maximum performance and minimize the possibility of rust staining, it is recommended that hot dipped galvanized or stainless steel fasteners be used. For enhanced appearance hidden fastening systems can be used. A greater force is required to drive nails into decking, especially when installing cold temperatures.

When installing fasteners into decking always wear safety gloves and glasses. Decking must be fastened at every joist

bullet

NAILS - Hold nails by hand until they are driven 1/2 the length of the fastener into the fencing.
 

bullet

WOOD SCREWS/LAG BOLTS - In colder temperatures we recommend pre-drilling fastener holes no larger than 3/4 the diameter of the shaft of the wood screw, lag bolt or nail being used.
 

bullet

STRING LINE - The use of a string line to align fasteners/boards is recommended to enhance the appearance of your fence (Do not use a chalk line).
 

bullet

FINISHING TOUCH - Deck boards will swell over fastener heads. Gently hammer the material down to cover the fastener head. To minimize this from occurring pre-drill fastener holes.
 

bullet

PNEUMATIC NAILER - When using pneumatic nail guns follow the nail gun manufacturer's installation and safety instruction.

Removing Stains

Mild stains may be removed with a common deck power wash detergent containing sodium hypochlorite. Tougher, ground in stains can be cleaned with cleaners containing phosphoric acid.

Care and Cleaning of Your EverGrain® Deck

EverGrain® decks and railings are easy to keep clean and free of residue build-up. Below you'll find basic guidelines for periodic cleaning that will help maintain the natural beauty of your deck.
 

Reducing Dirt & Grime

Semi-annual cleaning of your deck is recommended to reduce dirt, dust, grime and other residue build-up. When cleaning, rinse your deck with a garden hose using a fan-tip nozzle at a pressure not exceeding 1,000 psi.

Regular cleaning may not eliminate all dirt, dust, grime and other residue build-up on your deck.
For a more thorough cleaning of your EverGrain® deck, use a deck wash containing Sodium Hypochlorite such as those listed below:

BEHR® Multi-Surface Deck Prep Cleaner & Mildew Stain Remover
ARMOR ALL® E-Z Deck Wash
OLYMPIC® Deck Wash
 

Removing Rust Stains

Metal outdoor furniture can leave rust marks on your deck. Therefore, we recommend that you apply appropriate plastic or vinyl tips to metal furniture to prevent staining.

If rust stains do appear on your EverGrain® deck, they can often be removed using deck cleaners containing Oxalic Acid or Phosphoric Acid such as those listed below:

BEHR® Wood Cleaner Brightener Conditioner
Flood® Dekswood® Deck Cleaner Brightener
 

Cleaning Oil and Grease Stains

To keep your deck in the best possible shape, we also recommend the use of grill mats to reduce the risk of grease stains associated with grills.

Should grease or oil stain the deck's surface, it is important to clean the stain immediately using a commercial degreasing agent such as those listed below:

Gojo® Natural Orange Pumice Hand Cleaner
Castrol Super Clean
 

Removing Suntan Lotion

Since suntan lotions and oils can potentially stain your deck, please take precautions to avoid these types of spills.

These stains can often be removed using commercial degreasing agents such as those listed below. Be sure to remove as much of the lotion spill as possible with water before using cleaning agents.

Gojo® Natural Orange Pumice Hand Cleaner
Dawn Soap
 

Removing Mold and Mildew

Periodically rinse your deck with a garden hose, using a fan-tip nozzle at a pressure not exceeding 1,000 psi, to help reduce the occurrence of mold and mildew.

Mold and mildew stains are a natural result of moisture. These stains can often be removed using cleaners containing Sodium Hypochlorite such as those listed below:

BEHR® Multi-Surface Deck Prep Cleaner & Mildew Stain Remover
ARMOR ALL® E-Z Deck Wash
OLYMPIC® Deck Wash
 

Additional Tips

bulletRemove food, spills and other debris and clean immediately to minimize the possibility of staining.
 
bulletAlways test any cleaner on a small portion of your deck before cleaning the entire deck.
 
bulletAlways follow manufacturers' application instructions when using any cleaner.
 
bulletPlease note that any cleaner can lighten the color of your deck.
 
bulletPlace mats under metal objects to protect against rust stains.
 
bulletPlace grill mats under your grill to protect your deck from grease spills.
 
bulletNever mix two or more cleaning agents when cleaning your deck.
 
bulletDo not use a metal shovel to remove snow or ice from your deck, as you may cause damage to the deck surface.
 
bulletAlways follow proper gapping (installation) instructions to prevent water from accumulating on your deck.
 
bulletKeep the area under your deck clean and well ventilated.
 
bulletNever apply harsh solvents such as acetone, gasoline, benzene, carbon tetrachloride or paint thinner to your deck.
 
bulletSanding the surface to remove stains is not recommended.

Please contact our technical service department with any additional questions, comments or concerns.

EVERGRAIN Decking Structural Span Chart

Maximum recommended center-to-center spans with a minimum of three joists:

EVERGRAIN Size Residential & Light Duty Decks Commercial Decks, Boardwalks & Marinas Playground Equipment
1" x 6" 16" 12" 16" or less
2" x 4" 20" 16" 16" or less
2" x 6" 20" 16" 16" or less

 

Note: When diagonal (not to exceed 45°) installation is used, subtract 4" from the maximum span.

Composite decking has a softer (flexible) feel than wood primarily during the heat of summer. This is a natural condition that will not affect the ability of the decking to perform as warranted. For a more rigid feel, reduce joist span spacing 4". Decking cannot be cantilevered (overhang edge of deck) since structural support is required. EVERGRAIN PRODUCTS ARE NONSTRUCTURAL CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTS. THE DECKING PRODUCTS SHOULD NOT BE USED AS A STRUCTURAL MANNER; INCLUDING JOISTS, LOAD BEARING COLUMNS, STRINGERS, OR BEAMS.

For best results add an additional joist at the end joints to increase stiffness.

Important EverGrain™ Product Information

bulletMake safety of the workspace the prime consideration.
bulletIn order to determine the most desirable layout, view all deck boards (on decking joist or any other acceptable surface) prior to cutting or fastening.
bulletDiscuss any desired material changes with the supplier prior to cutting or fastening the decking to the structure.
bulletLike wood, every piece of EVERGRAIN™ decking is different. The weathering process for EVERGRAIN™ decking products will vary due to region, climate, rain, sunlight exposure, etc. Some variation in decking shade will appear due to weathering that will occur on the supplier's yard prior to shipment and due to different product lots.
bulletEVERGRAIN™ colors Redwood, Gray, Cedar and Cape Cod Gray will weather to a reasonably consistent color, with some naturally appearing variation.
bulletComposite decking has a softer (flexible) feel than wood primarily during the heat of summer. This is a natural condition that will not affect the ability of the decking to perform as warranted. For more ridged fell, reduce joist span spacing 4".
bulletEVERGRAIN™ Decking should always be installed in accordance with the application guidelines. Deviations from these guidelines may result in unsatisfactory performance.
bulletFor best results, EVERGRAIN™ Decking should never be applied directly to any solid surface (concrete, membranes, etc) or in conjunction with systems where inadequate drainage or improper venting are found.
bulletDo No Notch EVERGRAIN™ post.
