You can get them from our partner Staborn, specifically the Deckfast Metal screws (http://starbornindustries.com/deckfast-metal-product). They are available to color match. You can use the guide here to figure out which color matches our material: http://starbornindustries.com/deck-matcher/tool.
You can use our color-match fascia screws for this. This will allow them to not be seen clearly once installed.
This is about 20 inches, or over best practices. We do recommend 16 inches on center, but up to 19/20 inches is acceptable.
NewTechWood siding can be installed on interior surface, on plywood, without furring strips, if the room in which it is installed will maintain a fairly stable year-round temperature. We would not recommend using glues, or other adhesives, as best practice, as they may not hold over time.
The moistureshield would go under the subframe itself. The boards have to be attached to the subframe, and would therefore pierce any material between the two.
A subframe under our boards would not need to be bolstered to the ground (such as with a floating deck), if the installation is significantly heavy, and not likely to be moved, or unbalanced.
No, you cannot. The boards have to be attached to a frame for maximum sturdiness, and is required to honor our warranty.
While we have not specifically tested for such a height restriction, we would not be aware of any such reason why this restriction would exist. NewTechWood siding has been installed above the ground floor of numerous buildings, including two story housing, as well as taller residential and commercial buildings.
No, we recommend attaching them to the frame of the deck, directly, as this is safer and more secure. You can install the bolts through the deck boards or deck tiles, into the frame, if you would like, but please be sure to pre-drill and ensure the weight of the posts is supported by the […]
While most stains on our material can be cleaned with soap and water, this would require a deeper clean. Testing on an inconspicuous area first, you will want to use a combination of acetone and a wire brush, scrubbing gently. You will also want to make sure to wash this off once done.
While we do not have an end cap type solution for the US33 board, a fascia board can be used to cover the ends of the boards. Cutting an angle on the stair board can also help create a frame around the stairs. An example of this can be seen in the image below:
We recommend a 16 inch on center support for a bridge for light use. Heavy traffic, including commercial installations, or use by vehicles, would require 12 inches on center.
We recommend using two screws, each one 1.5 inches from the two sides of the board.
If using NewTechWood Starborn deck screws, you would not need to. Pre-drilling is required, if you use another brand, especially if you notice mushrooming.
You may use a bug screen on the bottom.
You can use a PVC trim board across the bottom to keep all the boards straight.
Such an installation does not need a vapor barrier. The wall is sufficiently waterproof, if it is made of cinder block.
No, it cannot. Furring strips are necessary for air flow and for the siding trim to properly be installed. The only exception would be in case of soffit installation. This means it cannot be installed directly onto any moisture barrier. This is not the case for interior installations, or for soffit.
Yes, to do so, either screw through the face to attach them, use the mini-gap clips, or use The Tiger Claw TC-G clip. The boards would still need to be properly supported.
While you’ll want to confirm with your contractor, as a general rule, you need to use two screws every 16 inches. This comes to 24 screws per board. Since each box of deck screws is a 100 pack, this roughly means you can cover 4 boards of 16 foot each per pack of screws. This […]
