GROOVED EDGE: EverGrain and Envision grooved edge decking products can be fastened by the Tiger Claw TC-G Hidden Fastening System or one of many compatible grooved edge hidden fas tening systems available. The chosen fastener manufacturer's installation instructions must be followed. The TigerClaw TC-G Hidden Fastening System instructions are available at www.fastenmaster.com. The first and last EverGrain or Envision grooved edge deck board should be face-fastened when using a compatible grooved edge hidden fastening system. Fasteners must be spaced so that no part of the fastener is within 3/4" from the end of the board and 1-3/8 from the edge of the board.

When using WOOD/COMPOSITE SCREWS, nominal 1" thick boards require a minimum #8 - 2 1/2" or longer screw for fastening.

The fastening decision is solely the responsibility of the contractor, installer or homeowner. TAMKO does not recommend or endorse any specific fastening system.

FASTENING REQUIREMENTS:
PRE-DRILLING
To avoid splitting and cracking, pre-drilling the fastener holes is required near ends and edges of the boards on EverGrain and Envision decking. When pre-drilling, the drill bit diameter should be the same diameter as the fastener shank.

PLACEMENT: Fasteners must be spaced so that no part of the fastener is within 3/4" from the end of the board and 1" from the edge of the board on square edge profiles of EverGrain and Envision. Apart from the exception explicitly stated in the Grooved Edge Fastener Selection section of these instructions, face-fasteners should not be used with grooved profiles of EverGrain and Envision.
EVERGRAIN

Decking must be fastened at every joist perpendicular to the deck surface. Two fasteners are required at the end of the board. Make sure joists are level.

EVERGRAIN

SKIRTING EverGrain and Envision skirting must be fastened with three evenly spaced fasteners every 8" on a solid surface.

TIPS:

  • STRING LINE The use of a string line to align fasteners/boards is recommended to enhance the appearance of your finished deck. (Do not use a chalk line).

  • FINISHING TOUCH EverGrain deck material may swell over fastener heads. Gently hammer the material down to cover the fastener head. Pre-drill fastener holes and/or use a counter sink bit to minimize this from occurring.

  • COLD WEATHER When installing in cold temperatures, a greater force is required to drive fasteners into the decking material.

CLEANING
Semi-annual cleaning of your deck is required. Prompt cleaning of stains is required.

FOR DETAILED CLEANING INFORMATION:
Please visit the care and cleaning section at www.evergrain.com.

After cleaning, flush the surface of decking using a garden hose or a power washer hose with a fan-tip nozzle at a pressure not exceeding 1,000 psi to remove any excess cleaning agents.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not sand the surface to remove stains.

HANDLING
EverGrain and Envision decking products are heavier and more flexible than traditional wood products. Use care and do not attempt to lift or carry more decking than you can safely handle at one time. Proper clothing and safety glasses must be worn at all times when working with decking.

Store material on a rigid, smooth, flat surface. The unused material should be kept covered and supported every 24". If boards become bent, most can be bent back to their original shape during application.

Determination of the effectiveness, suitability, and safety of any application or use of EverGrain or Envision decking products is solely the responsibility of the homeowner, contractor, or installer. Building code regulations vary, and the homeowner, contractor or installer must consult local building and safety codes for specific requirements prior to the application of EverGrain or Envision decking products.
