Wood swells when it is pressure pre-treated with a waterbased preservative – as much as 4% of the finished size after machining – and shrinks as it dries.
We therefore advise letting the deck boards, in particular, dry somewhat before fitting. This not only helps to achieve a more constant size but improves their workability.
Although minimised by the water repellent additive used with Q-Deck¨ products, climatic changes cause the wood to continually shrink and swell in service and in turn this movement may vary from piece to piece.
Q-Deck products are machined from slow grown and carefully selected softwood to give a better looking and smoother finish.
Q-Deck products are hand selected during manufacture. During the milling process Q-Deck is visually graded to minimise problem boards
All Q-Deck¨ products have DeckMark¨ accreditation independently assessed by the Timber Decking Association (TDA). This gives you the confidence to use our products knowing that their quality has been independently assessed. The TDA developed the DeckMark¨ to provide an independent quality assurance scheme.
