Most composites have similar installation instructions, but of course, refer to each brands instructions for proper install techniques. London Renovations adheres to these requirements to ensure you are able to take advantage of the long warranties offered by these manufacturers.
There are a few common options for fastening. Face screwing, like one would with wood, is the most cost effective option but is not an attractive solution. There are colour matched composite screws that look better, and prevent “mushrooming” of the material, but those get expensive and are still very visible if used throughout an entire deck.
HIDDEN FASTENING SYSTEM
The most popular, yet expensive way to install is using a hidden fastener system. Most composites can be purchased in grooved varieties that allow a hidden fastener to be installed between the boards, and widely out of view, leaving the face of the deck board untouched and beautiful.
