  • Why is WPC decking more expensive than wood?
    Oct 09, 2023
    Why is WPC decking more expensive than wood?             It is difficult to draw a conclusion on whether WPC decking or wood decking is better. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages. Some people like the environmental friendliness and durability of WPC decking, but others prefer the authentic feel of wood decking. There is no better one, only the one that suits you better.       But what is certain is that the price of WPC decking is higher than that of ordinary wood decking. Generally speaking, the price of WPC decking is more than 2 times the price of ordinary wood.         Raw materials are the biggest difference       The main reason why WPC decks are more expensive is that the raw materials required are more complex. WPC decks are composed of plastic particles, wood powder and additives. The process from recycling to processing of these raw materials is long and complex, and these costs are far greater than the cost of felling the wood. This is especially true in some countries and regions with rich timber resources.   The difference between production processes       The manufacturing process of WPC deck requires the use of advanced technology and equipment, including a series of processes such as granulation, extrusion, and polishing. Simply put, it involves gluing layers of materials together, applying thin layers of wood, texturing and decorative treatments, etc. The application of these processes and technologies increases manufacturing costs and also results in higher prices for composite flooring.       Relatively speaking, the production process of ordinary wooden floors is much simpler.         Consideration of later maintenance costs       Usually when buying a car, we should not only consider the cost of purchase at the time, but also need to consider the cost of subsequent repairs and maintenance. For example, a BMW car that is more than 10 years old may cost only a few thousand dollars, but it may have problems after you buy it home, and the cost of one repair may have exceeded the original price of the car.       The same goes for our outdoor decking, when comparing wood to WPC decking, pricing based solely on what it is today is unreasonable. Ordinary wood faces maintenance problems. Ordinary outdoor wood decks require repainting and surface layer protection.       Take repainting as an example. Assume that a wooden outdoor deck needs to be used for 15 years. A 4-liter bucket of deck paint costs about $90. Assuming that the paint is repainted once a year, and each repaint consumes 2 liters of paint, then the outdoor deck needs to be replaced. It previously cost about $675 to maintain, not including surface coating and time costs.       WPC decks don’t have this problem. You don’t have to spend time and money to maintain it. After this calculation, does the price difference in the initial purchase seem insignificant?         Durability considerations       WPC outdoor decks are waterproof, sun-proof, and anti-corrosion. Their service life can usually reach more than 15 years, while wooden decks usually do not last 15 years. In fact, if you take good care of it, it can reach more than 10 years. alright.       Buying and installing it again is a considerable expense, and I believe no one wants to see their garden deck needing to be demolished and rebuilt.   Better user experience       Taking the car example again, no one walks into their local car dealership expecting to buy a brand new Porsche 911 sports car for a few thousand dollars. Such luxury cars are more expensive because they have higher value, better performance, and can give you a better driving experience.       Same goes for WPC decking, our SENLAI WPC decking uses the latest composite building material technology and is therefore more expensive than wood. WPC was born to bring people a better outdoor deck experience.

  • Will critters damage WPC decks?
    Sep 22, 2023
    Will critters damage WPC decks?             Our WPC decking is often used in outdoor gardens. In addition to the wind and sun, there is also a threat that is easily overlooked, and that is the small animals from the jungle. Next, imagine two scenarios. 1. On a cool morning, you want to take a walk in the garden, but you find an inexplicable amount of feces and claw marks of different lengths on the deck, so you have to clean it. 2. On a sunny afternoon, you are sitting on a chair on the deck, and suddenly a small furry animal jumps out and darts away from your feet, scaring you so much that you scream. Soft and furry doesn't always mean cute, and that's something to be aware of when it comes to that WPC decking or even garden you've put a lot of effort into creating. So, to sum up, we conclude that critters can ruin your outdoor decking, even though they look cute and funny. In the eyes of animals, there is no issue of garden ownership. Everything is a gift from nature. We can neither watch our carefully crafted decks being destroyed, nor can we be too cruel to these little guys. So, how do we protect our gardens?   Animals on deck   What harm can small animals do to your floors? Some people may think that little animals are so cute, what can they do wrong? So, first we need to figure out what kind of damage these little guys will cause to our WPC decking.  Scratching: Animals such as feral cats, wild dogs or small mammals may scratch outdoor flooring surfaces, especially if the flooring material is soft or easily damaged. Their claws can cause scratches, peeling, or cracking.  Gnaw: The teeth of many rodents grow indefinitely, and they need to constantly chew on everything in sight to prevent their teeth from growing too long and affecting their ability to eat.  Digging: Some animals, such as rodents, rabbits, or birds, may try to burrow under outdoor floors or chew on flooring materials. This can cause flooring materials to loosen, break, or deform.  Excrement: Animal waste, such as urine or feces, on outdoor floors can cause corrosion, discoloration or odor issues on flooring materials. Certain fecal matter may also cause the growth of bacteria or mold.  Activity stress: Large animals, such as wild deer or cattle, can exert significant activity pressure, causing indentations, cracks, or deformations in some types of flooring.  Nesting: Some animals that hibernate in their habits like to hide or burrow under your deck, porch, or shed due to colder weather or the need for nesting in the spring.     Mouse's nest     Classification of threat levels       First, we need to classify their threat to decking into a level so that you can better respond when facing them.         CLASS ANIMALS HAZARD TYPE S Raccoons, opossums, prairie dogs, skunks, mice, chipmunks, otters, mice and other rodents Scratching, gnawing, digging, excrement, nest building A Wild deer, cow, bear Activity stress, scratching, excrement B Wild cats, wild dogs, hares Gnaw,excrement,scratching C Snake Nesting,excrement D Birds excrement         Raccoons, skunks, and most rodents:       We classify raccoons, skunks and most rodents as Level S, which is the level that poses the greatest threat to WPC decking.       If rodents like raccoons, skunks, and prairie dogs find their way into your garden, you may want to be wary. Not only do you have to pay attention to controlling the volume of your screams when encountering them, but you also have to beware of them completely destroying your WPC decking. They can cause up to 6 types of damage to the decking.       Small rodents will crawl on the decking and find a crack in your decking, open an opening, and build a nest underneath the decking. They destroy the foundation, leave droppings everywhere, and due to their ever-growing teeth, they must constantly chew on anything in sight, including your decking.   Wild Deer, Cows and Bears:       Five different species of deer live in North America. These include white-tailed deer, mule deer, caribou, elk and moose. Among them, the smallest of them, the white-tailed deer, can reach 300 pounds, while the largest, the moose, can reach an astonishing 1,600 pounds. The most common cattle can also reach over 2,000 pounds. The weight of these behemoths is concentrated on 4 small hooves. Just imagine how much pressure they will put on your decking when they move their bodies and take a leisurely walk on your WPC decking. If the wild deer happens to see itself in the glass door again and is frightened, it may be a disaster for your decking.         The same is true for bears. Not only are bears heavier, but they are also more destructive to decking. Their sharp claws can easily leave a mark on your decking. This seems to tell you, "The bears are here to visit."     Deers       Wild cats, wild dogs, hares:       These small mammals are the most common visitors to gardens, and they live in areas that overlap with humans. The smaller size of cats, dogs and hares means they can look for damage in the decking and amplify it.         They scratch and chew the decking and give birth to a litter of pups in a suitable location.         Snakes:         Snakes have the habit of hibernating, and they will look for a suitable place to take shelter from the cold as winter approaches. Their shape allows them to easily burrow under your WPC decking and lay eggs underneath.         Birds:       Birds are the animals that may pose the least threat to your decking among all common animals. They usually have degenerated bladders and large intestines, so they have no ability to control bowel movements and will leave excrement on your deck at any time. But other than that, birds will hardly cause any harm to your decking, so don’t worry too much.           Note: The above ranking only refers to the threats to your decking caused by small animals, and does not include threats to humans and other personal belongings.   How to keep animals off your floors? 1. Clean up plants and garbage promptly:       The biggest thing that attracts critters to your yard is an abundance of wildly growing plants. Once these critters discover these plants, especially near decks, they will swarm them.       These natural plants not only provide food for herbivores, but also provide shelter for all animals, and the remaining plant remains also provide nesting materials for some animals.       Therefore, timely lawn construction has become an essential behavior. The turf needs to be mowed when it reaches a height of 3 inches, which is high enough to provide a food source for many small animals and insects. Once insects become prevalent, they will attract more insect-eating carnivores to your garden and decking.       Don’t forget to dispose of lawn clippings, leaves and branches, and dispose of them together to prevent them from being used as nesting materials by small animals.       For those who enjoy decking and grilling, be aware of food and drink residue left on the deck. Leftover human food is a favorite of raccoons, cats, dogs and even bears. After the party is over, remember to clean up the deck, put all food remains into garbage bags and put them in the trash can with the lid closed, and also wipe up any soups and drinks on the deck, as necessary Please refer to our article "Clean the difference between WPC embossed decking and WPC straight decking." to solve the problem.   2. Set up barriers and repair loopholes:       Installing a fence is one of the most common ways to effectively keep animals out. Choose a fence of the appropriate height to prevent small animals from jumping over or crawling through.       Check yard boundaries and decking joints for possible entry points such as cracks, gaps, and open doors and windows. Seal and repair them to ensure there is not enough space for critters to enter.   3. Use sound and motion sensing devices:     Small animals are sensitive to sudden sounds and motion. Set up some sound devices in the yard, such as sprinklers, bells or speakers, which are triggered when small animals approach, creating noise or movement to make them feel uneasy and move away.   4. Use natural repellents:       Certain natural gases can drive away some small animals, such as certain plants, herbs and flowers that can repel wild cats; for example, the smells emitted by plants such as basil, thyme, mint and mosquito repellent have a certain deterrent effect on wild cats; peppermint oil, Chili powder, camphor flakes, and lemon peel will repel rodents.       Spray these products on areas where small animals may pass or stay, and they often don't like the smell.   5. Set up a humane trap       Special traps can be set for some small animals, such as rodents and wild cats. What is noteworthy about this method is purchasing reliable and professional equipment and ensuring your own safety. After all, a small animal trapped in a cage will fight to the death, regardless of whether you have any intention of harming it.       Place the trap in an area where rodents are most active, but make sure it is out of direct sunlight as trapped pests may die from dehydration or heat stress.       Please be aware that when dealing with animals, respect and consider the welfare of the animals. Avoid using abusive, cruel or inhumane methods to solve problems and instead seek to humanely resolve situations where animals get under floors.       Trap   6. Seek professional help:       If you still don’t know what to do or are very worried after reading this, you may wish to seek expert help.       The best way to deal with unwanted visitors is to seek professional animal control services. They will have the experience and professional equipment to safely remove animals and nests. They can also provide advice and measures to prevent other animals from establishing nests again.         By the way, our co-extruded decking is more durable and resistant to gnawing and scratching by small animals.

  • Can WPC decking be scratch-resistant?
    Sep 13, 2023
    Can WPC decking be scratch-resistant?   To be honest, WPC decking are not 100% scratch-proof. Even between different types of WPC decking, their scratch resistance can vary. What? As a WPC decking manufacturer, I thought you would tell me that WPC decking is scratch-resistant. Unfortunately, although WPC decking has hundreds of advantages, I can't lie to you in this regard. Although I really hope that everyone can buy my products, I hope that you can have a perfect yard even more. WPC decking is a type of artificial decking. Although it is better than some wooden decking in terms of anti-scratch performance and can withstand large amounts of foot traffic and extreme weather, it is made of recycled plastic and wood powder after all. instead of metal. But some necessary measures and techniques can try to avoid damage to the decking.     Which WPC decking is more scratch-resistant?   WPC decking is mainly divided into two categories: traditional composite decking (first-generation decking) and co-extruded decking (second-generation decking). The main difference between them is that co-extruded decking has a surface coating that has added antioxidants and stabilizers to firmly protect the internal structure and is more scratch-resistant, even if it is Even if it is scratched by sharp objects, it will not leave any big marks.     How to avoid scratching as much as possible?   1. Choose the right furniture   Proper furniture selection can prevent scratches from occurring in the first place. Lighter furniture or larger base areas can effectively reduce pressure and prevent the furniture from directly scratching the decking. Of course, it would be great if you could thoughtfully put foot pads under each table and chair or lay carpets under them. This not only makes your decking more beautiful, but also protects your decking better. (Remember to check the mats regularly to make sure they are not worn or have sharp objects. If they are worn or damaged, replace or repair them in time)       2. Avoid pulling heavy objects   Avoid dragging heavy objects on the decking, whether they are furniture, boxes or large toys, even if they have pads on the bottom.   3. Clean the decking promptly   Some people may ask, will the cleanliness of the decking affect its anti-scratch ability? The answer is yes. Cleanness and dirt will not directly affect the anti-scratch ability. However, if the decking is not cleaned in time, gravel and small stones may remain on the WPC decking surface. Once they are stepped on in the future, they may cause scratches on the decking surface mark.   4. Be careful with high heels   High heels, especially stilettos, can cause damage to all kinds of decking. High heels concentrate all the weight of a person's body on two small points, which greatly increases the pressure. Try not to do this even if you are slim. The sharp heels of high heels may leave scratches on the decking, and certain decking materials, such as soft plastic decking or thin wooden decking, may be damaged by perforations from the sharp parts of high heels.   High heels on the deck   5. Pets   Pets are part of our family and we love seeing them running and playing happily on the decking. However, it is worth noting that certain habits of small animals can also pose some threats to the decking. Cats like to sharpen their claws and dogs need to grind their teeth. If they use the decking as their own tool, they will leave some marks on the decking. We can’t stop their nature, but we can guide them to find tools that suit them, such as preparing scratching posts and teething sticks in advance. As long as they are satisfied elsewhere, they will no longer think about WPC decking. By the way, remember to seal the edges of the decking with edge strips, because large gaps will arouse the curiosity of small animals, and they can't help but want to find out.   cat on deck   To decide which deck is better for your garden, check out our product interface and contact us to determine which deck is best for you.

  • Are termites a threat to WPC floors?
    Sep 08, 2023
    Are termites a threat to WPC decking?      Termites are one of the most annoying critters in every home, and they are natural enemies of wood and all wooden products. Thinking of termites slowly eating away at the house or floor you spent so much time and money building can be painful. It takes a huge price to completely eradicate termites, so we might as well find out whether the materials we are going to use can resist termites before we start construction.      So, can WPC decking completely resist the threat of termites? The answer is controversial. Under normal circumstances, termites will not eat WPC decking. Because WPC decking is a man-made material, it is a composite material made of wood fiber and plastic plus various additives. Compared with traditional wood and wood products, WPC decking is much less attractive to termites. However, in some areas where termites are heavily infested, this situation is still unavoidable. Before diving into this issue, we first need to understand our enemy.   Decking eaten by termites   What are termites?      Termites are a group of detritophagous eusocial insects which consume a wide variety of decaying plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, and soil humus. Some species of termites make their homes in soil, while others prefer to build nests in dry wood (such as the walls of a house) or damp wood (such as rotting logs).      Termites usually live in tropical and subtropical regions where they like warmth and humidity. At this time, maybe you will be glad that I am Canadian, and my country is located in a cold area, which can keep me away from these nasty little things. But unfortunately, except for Alaska, there are reports of termites found in other parts of the world, but there are fewer termite species in temperate and cold regions, and the diversity of termites in tropical and subtropical regions is much higher.      Termites are a global problem. Whether you live in frigid Scandinavia or scorching Amazon rainforest, you can't avoid dealing with these little guys. But don't be too scared, termites usually don't attack humans, they are only interested in your furniture, house and floors.   Termites   Will termites eat WPC decking?      So, will termites eat the WPC floor? The answer is controversial. WPC flooring is made of wood fiber, plastic and some additives. During its production process, after many times of high temperature and fusion, the finished product no longer has some wood properties, and the plastic and additives are not there. The diet of termites is heavy, so WPC flooring is not attractive to termites. However, this situation is still unavoidable in some areas where termites are severely infested (such as Southeast Asia and Africa).        Although this situation is difficult to control, we still summarize some factors that will affect termite erosion of WPC flooring and how to change them based on customer feedback and research:      1、The termite erosion of wood-plastic floor also depends on the specific structure and material of the floor.             If the wood fiber component of the wood-plastic floor is subject to termite food preferences, termites may eat and attack these parts. Termites are a group of picky pests, and they are very picky about the choice of wood. I don't like hard wood such as mahogany, iron wood, red toon, sassafras, black grid, and jujube, but I like soft wood such as masson pine, sweetgum, willow, and poplar. Therefore, if you are more worried about termites, you also need to ask about its composition before buying WPC decking.      2. Damage to the floor structure or wrong installation methods can also lead to termite erosion.        If the structure of a laminate floor is damaged or defective, there is still a chance that termites can attack its interior. For example, if the edges of the floor are not sealed properly or if there are cracks, termites may enter the interior of the floor through these entry points and begin to attack the wood material. In addition, the wrong installation method will greatly increase the probability of termite erosion. Before laying wooden floors, you need to lay keels on the floor. If the WPC floor is in direct contact with the soil, it may attract underground termites, causing damage to nearby structures. In case of damage, before laying the floor, it is necessary to make an overhead layer. Some families often ignore this step for convenience or cost savings. Solid WPC keel or steel structure keel can effectively alleviate this problem.    Lay the keel before laying the floor   How to judge whether your WPC decking has been corroded by termites?      Due to their annoying habits, termites like to build their nests on the floor or inside of furniture, and then eat from the inside to the outside. So, it's usually hard to tell until the floor is completely destroyed. By the time you can find out, it's too late, and most of your floors have been destroyed by termites.      But we are not helpless, the following measures can help you find out whether the WPC floor has been corroded by termites as soon as possible:        Visual Inspection: Carefully inspect the surface of the WPC floor, looking for any visible cracks, dents, scuffs or other damage. Pay special attention to the edges and joints of the floor, as these areas are more susceptible to damage.           Floors damaged by termites            Thumb Test: Gently press your thumb against the floor surface to check for signs of looseness, bending, or lack of elasticity. Under normal circumstances, the WPC floor should be stable and have no obvious deformation.      Touch check: Run your hands lightly over the floor surface to check for any dents, bumps or unevenness. This could be a sign of damage to the material underneath the floor.      Check floor edges: Check floor edges and joints for nicks, cracks, or looseness. These areas are potential entry points for termites to enter the interior of the floor.      Watch out for odors: If you smell an unusual odor around your floors, it could be a sign of termites or other pests. Termites often emit a distinctive smell, so it is also important to pay attention to changes in the sense of smell.      Pay attention to the sound: nests dug by termites can cause hollow sounds. If you think you might have a termite infestation, you can usually listen for these cavities by tapping the floor with a screwdriver. Floors damaged by termites will squeak or creak due to loose planks moving between or subfloors and supports often being compromised.      Look for other signs: In addition to signs of immediate damage, keep an eye out for termite tunnels, droppings, or other signs. These signs may indicate that termites have entered the area in or near the floor.    What to do if termites are already invading your WPC decking?      What to do if, unfortunately, you didn't read this article sooner, after reading the above methods, you find that you already have signs of termite infestation in your floor. Don't worry too much, there is still a chance to save everything.           Once you determine that termites may be present, you must call a pest control professional as soon as possible. This will help prevent further damage to your home.

  • What's The Fire-Resistance Rating of WPC Decking
    Aug 30, 2023
    What's The Fire-Resistance Rating of WPC Decking             Fireproof materials play a vital role in modern buildings. With the rapid development of urbanization and the increase of buildings, fire safety has become the primary task of protecting people's lives and property safety. In this context, it is particularly important to select and use effective building fireproof materials. Therefore, we hope that all customers who want to buy WPC decking or have already purchased WPC decking can understand what the fire rating is and the fire rating of our products.       In the following, we will introduce in detail what are the internationally accepted fire protection ratings, and whether WPC decking can meet your fire protection requirements.       What's the fire-resistance rating classfication system?   The fire-resistance rating classification system is a standardized system used to evaluate the fire resistance performance of building materials and assemblies. It determines the ability of materials and assemblies to withstand fire exposure and retain their structural integrity during a specified period. Materials and products can be classified into seven different Euroclasses according to how they react in fire The higher the letter, the better the fire performance. The following table can clearly see how different grades of fireproofing materials perform.   Classification Definition Description A1 Non-Combustibility No contribution to fire A2 Limited Combustibility Very limited contribution to fire B Combustible Limited contribution to fire C Minor contribution to fire D Medium contribution to fire E High contribution to fire F Easily flammable           Additionally, an "S" rating may exist in some countries' fire rating systems. This "S" rating usually means "Smoke". The "S" in the fire rating indicates the smoke production and toxicity of the material or structure in the event of a fire.      Smoke is one of the most dangerous elements in a fire, threatening the lives of people and possibly causing smoke poisoning. Therefore, in some fire rating systems, in addition to considering the fire resistance of materials and structures, the smoke generated by their combustion is also evaluated and classified.   Classification Description S1 low opacity and produces little smoke S2 Medium opacity and produces smoke S3 High opacity and produces a lot of smoke       The fire rating of our WPC decking is Class B       The fire rating of our wood-plastic flooring complies with the industry norms for wood composite products, which belongs to Class B. Class B fire rating means our WPC flooring has excellent flame retardant effect. It is nearly impossible to ignite.       Since we want to keep the beautiful appearance of the floor as much as possible and simulate the texture of real wood, the material contains wood powder and plastic, so it is almost impossible to achieve the A-class flame retardant rating. But don't worry, this still complies with current fire codes.   FIRE RATING TEST     How to Put Out a Floor Fire       We all know that outdoor campfires and barbecues are one of everyone's favorite gathering activities. The WPC floor is usually used in outdoor gardens or swimming pools, and becomes neighbors with various plants.       Although the WPC floor is difficult to ignite, we must also pay attention to safety when the surrounding is full of flammable materials. What if, unfortunately, during an outdoor barbecue, something is set on fire on the floor?       1.Call the fire department       In any case, calling the local fire alarm is the safest option. Once you feel that the situation is out of control, please call the local fire alarm immediately;       2. Stop adding fuel to the fire       If something on the floor is set on fire, make up your mind to stop the event and evacuate the crowd immediately. After all, nothing is more important than life safety. Under the condition of ensuring safety, transfer nearby oil, charcoal and other flammable items away from the fire source;       3. Extinguish controllable fire sources       Since the WPC floor has a certain fire resistance, in the absence of flammable materials, it is difficult for the fire source to spread quickly on the floor. If the fire is small and your safety is not threatened, you can try to put out the flames yourself. Using a certified fire extinguisher is the best option, if not available a bucket of water or a garden hose can be used. If you choose to use a hose, set the nozzle to the shower or spray setting, as a direct shot of water can create sparks. When dousing a fire with water, remember to keep a certain distance from the flames. The heat from the fire can turn the water into scalding hot steam that can burn you or others nearby       4. Bury fire source       Do not let your guard down immediately after the fire is extinguished, you also need to grab a shovel and scoop up the dirt in the yard, aim at the spot that just burned, and bury the ash and embers. If you see any steam or hear any hot spots, you Feel free to add more water to quench it completely. Tip: Doing this will prevent a resurgence and don't worry about staining the floor, WPC floors are very easy to clean.

  • Does The WPC Decking Warp?
    Jul 27, 2023
    Does The WPC Decking Warp?       WPC decking as a substitute for wood floor, the advantage is very obvious, because the wood is easy to warp, we will tend to choose WPC decking, but WPC decking will also have the possibility of warping. Next we will detail the difference between wood flooring and WPC decking in this respect, and how to avoid warping when installing WPC decking.           The cause of the wood floor warping       Wood floor is used because of improper, the faucet of kitchen or toilet runs water, make wood floor bubble water is too long, wood floor produces wet bilge is out of shape, because wet expand size becomes big no place to stretch, can arch only. Continuous rainy weather, the relative humidity in the air is on the high side, did not take wet measures, the moisture in the air is absorbed by the wood floor after expansion. As it dries and the moisture in the air decreases, the wood contracts again. In the use process, this kind of situation may happen many times, produce wood floor warping. The density of different parts of the tree is also different, and the density of the wood used in a wood floor varies, which causes different rates of absorbing and draining water, with one part drying slower than the other, which makes the wood floor warp.       WPC decking has warping resistance       WPC decking is a kind of high-tech green environmental protection material made of wood fiber as the foundation material and plastic particles and processing additives, mixed evenly, and then heated and formed by the mold equipment, the density is uniform, so the water absorption and drainage speed of each part of WPC decking is the same, so it reduces the possibility of warping. And plastic polymer can cover wood fiber, with better waterproof performance.     The correct way to install WPC decking     WPC decking is mainly composed of wood fiber and plastic particles, organic material can also suffer tide to a certain extent, the phenomenon of warping occurs thereby. As a result of adding plastic polymer when making, theoretically plastic wood floor is not easy to produce warping. Accordingly, when discovery WPC decking produces warping, the possibility is installation method is wrong. We provide complete and detailed installation instruction manuals resulting in better protection for WPC decking and protection against warping.     The two sides of each WPC decking have grooves, we have a special clip system, through the clip will be fixed on the joist, so that the gap between the WPC decking at least 5mm, so that the decking can adapt to the hot expansion and cold contraction caused by the weather, will not affect other WPC decking, thus reduce warping. When fastening WPC decking, want to use expansion screw, the heat that can adapt to the decking expands cold shrink change so, won't bring about WPC decking cracking. Finally, do not pay attention to complete level when installing WPC decking,the surface of the decking collects water easily , accelerate the water absorption speed of WPC decking, the time is long can bring about warping.
