The decking strips are easy to install and include pre-drilled holes and zinc plated fixing screws. All you will need to complete the installation process is a suitable drill. If you think that the zinc screws won’t be suitable for your particular application, you can switch them to stainless steel screws which are stronger, and they won’t rust.
Before you can begin the installation process you will need to prepare the existing decking. You can do this by ensuring that it is dry, clean and free from any debris or loose material. Where the surface of the wood is damaged this will need to be repaired to create a flat and even surface to achieve the best results. Once the surface has been properly prepared, dry fit each of the decking strips to make sure that they fit freely and flat to the surface of the decking. If you need to, you can cut the strips to fit particular shapes or sizes. If you do need to cut them to size, you will need either a 1mm bladed angle grinder or a 4mm diamond bladed skill saw. When the decking strips are in the correct place, take a marker and mark through the pre-drilled holes onto the decking.
Place the strips into position where you need them to go and then take the screws in turn, drilling through the pre-drilled holes and into the decking underneath. Repeat this until all of the pre-drilled holes have been filled. If you are drilling into hardwood, you may need to create a pilot hole. It is important that you use the screws that we provide with your decking strips because the natural properties of decking will result in the contraction and expansion of the wood over time. The screws that we supply allow for this movement to take place and will help to remove any splitting or bowing of the wood. Avoid over tightening the screws because this can restrict movement as the wood moves in different temperatures.
