Great looks with low maintenance - Deck Supermarkets Superdeck UPVC Deck Board looks better, lasts years longer and assures low maintenance savings when compared to a wooden construction. Created from polyvinylchloride (PVC) the decking material won't rot, chip, splinter or crack and never needs sealing or painting.
Our uPVC boards are designed to always run length ways away from from buildings/structures (as per the bottom image) rather than parallel, a small fall should be incorporated to allow water to be naturally carried away, start with a starter trim and the boards will naturally lock in to this and be held down with screws through the trailing edge of the boards, don't for get if you are using a fascia board to clad your frame that this should be added first, your boards can then overhang slightly and be finished with a U-Channel. The U-Channel has 2 purposes, the first is to cloak the edge of the uPVC boards as they are hollow and the second is to act as a gutter and carry the water dispersed by the fall of the boards away. We advise that joist centre spacing is between 300-350mm.
Through out the winter we have been making improvements to our very popular Deck-it uPVC Deck Boards, how can we improve an already great product? Firstly we have changed the base material. The boards are now produced in a "Window White" base material which benefits from years of proven testing making it a fantastic reliable and stable base, secondly we have increased the skin thickness (Top Colour) which incidentally is a virgin vinyl and the overlap and increased the overall thickness of the boards structure. Finally we have reduced the gloss levels to give a more satin/matt finish which in turn highlights the embossed finish and gives even more of a quality finish and further the longevity of the board.
