Do you have composite decking questions? Read our most FAQ’s right here:
What is it made of? NexGEN Decking is crafted from 50% recovered hardwood fibre and 50% UV-stabilised high-density polyethylene.
Where is it made? In USA by Fiberon Composites with patented technology.
What are the advantages over traditional timber decking? Long straight lengths, quick and easy installation, never warps, never rots, splinter free, no sanding, no painting, no sealing, no staining, long lasting, scratch resistant, termite resistant and up to a 50 Year, Stain and Fade Warranty.
What maintenance is required? Virtually none, only occasional cleaning with soap and water or a pressure clean.
How does NexGEN compare to other composite decking? NexGEN Decking products are the only ones on the market that solves the three problems composite decking customers complain most about: colour fade, staining, and mould/mildew. Each board has a non-porous surface layer that is co-extruded into the wood fibre (golf ball cover technology). The nonporous cover is what sets our boards apart from all other composites.
Will the surface peel or wear off? The surface will not peel off due to the fact that the surface layer is coextruded into the wood fibre. Under normal conditions, the surface will last indefinitely. If exposed to high wear or abrasion, some wearing is possible. If any of the substrate becomes exposed, this is no cause for alarm because it contains the same UV stabilizers as the rest of the composition and is not affected.
How long will the antimicrobial product protection last? Antimicrobial protection is built-in during the manufacturing process and will not wash off or wear away. It is engineered to provide continuous antimicrobial product protection for the useful lifetime of the product.
How does the price compare to traditional timber decking? Our pricing is similar to a good quality hardwood but of course you will end up saving money each year due to the maintenance requirements of timber.
What sort of warranty is there? Lifetime performance warranty to a 50 year Stain, Fade and Performance Warranty on our Select Range.
How is it fixed? Each board is pre-grooved on both sides to take a hidden fastener system.
How does temperature affect the boards? NexGEN deck boards are suitable for all climates and are sold all over the world where harsh freezing winters and boiling hot summers have put them to the test.
Are they slippery when wet? No more slippery than normal timber.
Can I paint or stain the boards? Only cut edges will respond properly to matching stains or quality oil based paint.
Can you DIY? Yes it is very DIY friendly and our team is available to assist with any questions.
Do I need special tools to cut it? No it cuts like normal hardwood.
