Before Beginning to Work
Having taken delivery of your boards, we recommend you allow them a day to adjust to your local temperature and conditions before starting work. We do not recommend installing your deck in cold weather. Your decking boards can be worked with normal woodworking tools. We recommend using a wood saw with a fine-tooth blade to cut boards to size. When cutting, care should be taken to ensure that boards are properly supported.
As with other building work it is important to work safely and to take suitable safety precautions including the wearing of protective clothes, gloves, safety goggles and dust mask.
