Long Straight Lengths
Both Ekodeck & Ekodeck+ are available in long 5.4m lengths, and unlike traditional timber they are consistent and straight for an easy installation.
Modern or Traditional?
For an installation with hidden fasteners and a clean finish then Ekodeck+ is the way to go, but for a traditional installation with butt joins then Ekodeck is a better option.
Framing your deck
Designing a deck with a border or frame is great feature to finish off the edges. Take a look at our Ekodeck gallery for more examples and inspiration.
Using Breaker Boards
The use of breaker boards is an alternative design to butt joins and can be used to limit the visual effect of butt joins (as shown here) and mitre join gaps opening and closing.
Pre-drill and Countersink
When top fixing your deck, be sure to predrill and countersink the screw holes for a clean edge around the screw once it's installed.
Choosing your colour
Before choosing your colour, consider how you will use your deck. Like any type of flooring lighter colours will need to be cleaned more often.
