Will dog claws scratch composite decking?
Composite decking mimics the look of natural wood, but without the upkeep. While it’s much more scratch resistant than wood, it’s not totally scratch proof. With enough gusto, your pooch could still leave permanent marks. Vinyl decking is another durable solution to ward off a claw-tastrophy.
Can you install Ekodeck on concrete?
You can’t install Ekodeck directly on top of concrete or a solid surface – it will need to be installed on some sort of framework. If you have adequate drainage beneath your deck which does not allow water to pool, we recommend a minimum of 40mm ground clearance beneath your deck.
Does Eco deck get hot?
While early composite decks were very sensitive to temperature and did get notoriously hot, any new composite decking will be much more resistant to heat. In addition, the lighter the color of the composite deck boards that you choose, the cooler they will stay in direct sunlight.
