Trade Tips

Our chippies are laying with three men 30 to 40sq. m. a day. Allow a few jobs before you will get up to speed – like any new way it takes a little adjustment.

  • The End Match decking is even faster as you simply lay and fix you DO NOT have to cut and join on a joist.

Current feedback when using the end matched decking is between 2% & 3%. And 10% for standard non end matched.

  • This is all about how accurate were the quantities to start with.
  • The actual shape of the deck.
  • Decisions made on site by the chippie as to cutting.

  • No change
  • When you wish to lay up a framing board as usual you will fit a double joist for the join.
  • When laying the Composite it is recommended that you set up stringer boards to join rather than butt joints – (ask us for photo
  • End Match timber allows you to simply lay the board – do not have to measure and cut.
  •  Do not need to join on Joist
  • Timber will be random length but just keep inserting the Deck-Max EM joiner and the only cut is when the deck runs to the end point.
  • Lay one board at a time
  • Be sure to apply clamp pressure and tap all boards just prior to fixing off the clip and screw.
    • Especially on butt joints
    • Tap from the end to get tight joints.
  • The first board is the straight edge for all the rest, spend time in laying this first board nice and straight to a string line.
  • Each board is then pulled tight to the board and will not feather out due to the high spec on timber machining.
    • However you can deliberately feather as required.
  • How you start & how you finish
    • Simply cut the CounterBore hole with our CounterBore tool – insert screw – tap in plug – Cut flush and sand to finish.
    • This is how you start and also finish.
  • Mitred Corners
    • Insert the Deck-Max joiner biscuit (DM J10) – extremely strong and looks fantastic.
