Revamping the garden space can be much of a hectic job, but one can make it convenient through the installation of Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) decking. CenturyPly, one of the foremost leaders in the plywood and interior industry, presents to you the latest WPC decking solutions that not only look beautiful but also provide service for many years ahead. In this article, we are going to share 10 steps with you to install a WPC decking in your garden.

  • Step 1: Establishing the Plan and the Design

Before the installation process, you must plan properly and finalize the design. Consider the layout, size, and any additional features that you wish to incorporate into your plan. Be it CenturyPly’s noble hardwood collection with its creamy tones that create a perfect backdrop or its low maintenance and durable water-resistant planks that also add to the uniqueness of your garden, the choice of the best match is in your hands.

  • Step 2: Acquire and Gather Material and Tools

To guarantee an easy install flow, get the tools and parts in stock. Gather the WPC board from CenturyPly, joists, screws, and so on. Having everything in hand will cut down on time and make it quicker to cover all the requirements of the plan.

  • Step 3: Prepare the surface

Before installing the WPC decking, make sure where you are choosing a place that is flat and clear of debris. Remove weeds, rocks, or uneven surfaces. One vital aspect to consider is to ensure that the base is not sloppy and is flat and well-prepared. This will ensure the longevity of the decking.

  • Step 4: Install Joists

The first thing to do is to put the joists in because those will be holding decking boards against them. Space them according to the guidelines provided by the manufacturer. Make sure to use the appropriate screws only.

  • Step 5: Lay the Decking Boards.

Next, assemble the joists and start laying the CenturyPly WPC composite decking boards with them. These boards should be tightened together but precisely, a small space must be kept between the boards for water drainage. The interlocking system of WPC boards helps to cover this step easily.

  • Step 6: Cut and trim

In case required, cut and trim the decking boards into the desired size and shape. A handy jigsaw or circular saw can make it possible. Be careful with the details and corners of this process and you will create a neat and professional look.

  • Step 7: Secure the Boards

After laying down all the decking boards, now use the specific screws needed to securely fasten the boards on their joists. Make sure that each board is tightly pegged without any shaking or warping possibility in the long run.

  • Step 8: Add ons

CenturyPly is a leading WPC board manufacturer and their products are well equipped with all the latest technologies to deal with moisture, temperature changes, and so on. But it is still a suggestion, to give an extra layer of protection through add-on products, to ensure the longevity of the product.

  • Step 9: Finish with deluxe add-ons.

Once the main installation process is over, inspect and evaluate it to make sure that there are no issues regarding the quality of the decking. Perform the check for any loose screws, warped or uneven floorboards, miss-fittings, or gapings. 

  • Step 10: Enjoy your new deck
