York Wooden Decking Boards.
York Deck boards are DeckMark & FSC approved, kiln-dried and pressure-treated to U/C3 standard. (Exterior use – not in ground contact) for longevity.
Each double-sided (Grooved or Smooth) board is cut from slow grown, selected softwood with finished dimensions after machining of 120mm X 33mm. York decking is very strong allowing for joist centres of up to 600mm.
Cleaning and Care.
A with all other types of decking boards, York decking requires regular sweeping and the occasional hose down to remove any build-ups of dead leaves or other organic matter. This will help to reduce the formation of slippery algae or moulds. In spring or early summer, the decking surface should be carefully washed with a pressure washer to remove all the winters build-up of grime. Once the boards have dried out fully, a fresh treatment of decking oil (or even better- two treatments) will help to restore and protect your deck for the next year.
We recommend using a 63mm length Exterior grade Decking Screw for fixing York decking boards. Two screws per board, per joist. Although many deck screws say “No pre-drilling required” on the box, we would recommend that a countersunk pilot hole is drilled for each screw.
It is important to choose screws that can be used with pressure treated timber. Otherwise, the screws will corrode causing staining and the early failure of your deck.
