Here, we are sharing a few of the experiences about grooved timber decking’s signs that indicate serious damage.
- Grooved boards are so much popular in every corner of the world mostly. However, in regions like Australia and UK, such material timber is popular. Since 1990, the material has been so much in demand. Aside from its mind-blowing look, they were marketed as anti-slip, but the truth is they are not having an extra grip. If you install the grooves in the direction of face-up, they will start channelling water away from the deck to make sure that standing water doesn’t damage the material. One more considerable thing about the grooved deck board is that the fixings are hidden in the ridges.
- Dual-sided boards, which are purpose made and smooth on a single side and having grooved patterns on both sides are the most common in the current market trend. Mostly the edges are either chamfered or rounded on the surface that is there to avoid damage. With such a feature, they give an option of grooved side up or down to the buyers, so that they can purchase as per the preference. If you ever find grooved deck boards with sharp edges then they should be fitted with the grooved side up. If it’s installed smooth side up, then there will remain no possibility of water that channel away easily and drag heavy objects like furniture and other electronic stuff with them which can result in a miserable condition.
- When we install decking, the most common preference of every homeowner could be that grooved timber decking should be easily operated. Any material that improves ventilation around a timber deck is the best thing you need to consider. In Australia, most professionals believe that grooves that face down will allow enough airflow to stop moisture and mould build-up. There could be chances that more manufacturers will research this theory and they can add up their modifications into designs.
