That looks awesome - how long did that take you to install?
Have you had any problems with watermarks left after rain? Our new Cleverdeck floor is left with them every time and they never seem to disappear completely after drying out.
Hi @maknilsin, thanks for your comment. I didn't physically install it myself - only ' supervised' over the builders' shoulder. Once the foundations were done and the metal posts were in it was pretty much plain sailing except for some stop/start because of downpours. Because all the boards were the same length as the proposed deck ( my way of cutting the labour costs ) time was saved as well as money. The builder did the fixing while I helped by presenting the boards as needed. Deck size is 5.4 x 2.5 meters, and the boards were laid in 1.5 work days. And I just love it. Cheers.
Hi @Darbysgirl, I'm not familiar with your product but perhaps this may help ? The guys at Ekodeck told me it was very important to wash the deck on completion with a bucket of hot water with dishwash liquid,rinse off with warm water then dry with your squeeze mop. This apparently washes away the (invisible to us) waxy coating that remains on the product after manufacture. I did as he instructed and have had no problem with water marks - and boy have we had some water to deal with !! I have also removed lots of bird poo too. Warm soapy water,rinse and dry. Birds love my new deck-just wish they would face IN when perching so their bottoms would be OUT Hope you find this helps @Darbysgirl. Remember too, scuff marks,etc.. can be removed from Ekodeck by a quick sanding along the grain, but I don't know if your product has that option Cheers
@Trying, pure genius planning your deck to be the length of the planks, saving on labour & wastage.
You played your cards right, & have a beauty full deck.
