When we create a garden, there is always a topic that cannot be avoided, and that is how to minimize the time we spend on garden maintenance. In addition to reducing the number of plants that are not easy to maintain what else can be done ……
In this time, we usually think of a way to choose a more convenient and easy-to-maintain paving material in the garden in the hard paving, but this is far from enough because in many cases, some wood material itself has a lot of maintenance points that need our special attention.
That there is no kind of paving material, can take into account the advantages of wood materials such as color, while also being able to combine the advantages of its own easy maintenance? Of course, we have to talk about WPC decking!
Why choose composite decking?
- Waterproof and moisture-proof. Fundamentally solves the problem that wooden products are easy to rot and swell and deform after absorbing water and moisture in humid and watery environments, and can be used in environments where traditional wooden products cannot be applied.
- Insect and termite-resistant, effectively eliminating insect harassment and extending service life.
- Colorful, with many colors to choose from. Both have natural wood texture and wood texture and can be customized according to your personality to the color you need.
- Plasticity can be very simple to achieve personalized modeling and fully reflect the individual style.
- High environmental protection, pollution-free, pollution-free, and recyclable.
- High fire resistance. It can be effectively flame retardant, fire grade B1, self-extinguishing in case of fire, and does not produce any toxic gas.
- Good processability can be ordered, planned, sawed, drilled, and the surface can be painted.
- Simple installation, convenient construction, no complicated construction process, save installation time and cost.
- No cracking, no expansion, no deformation, easy to clean, save the cost of later repair and maintenance.
How should wood plastic composite decking be installed?
After you have decided to use wood-plastic flooring, if you are creating your own garden, it is bound to face such a problem, that is, how to install it. In fact, the key to solving this problem is in the keel installation!
Below I also prepared some installation methods and several special installation points about the keel for you.
In the installation of the keel, the distance between the keel generally depends on the thickness of deck WPC; when the thickness of wood plastic composite decking is less than 25mm, then the distance between the keel can not exceed 250mm, the maximum keel spacing shall not exceed 400mm.
Installation points in several special cases
1, in the pond lake or other places to install a suspended walkway, can not be a large area of drainage pouring concrete, you can use galvanized ground nails screwed directly into the ground, and then in the ground screw welded galvanized pipe keel can be. (If it is installed in a lake pond or the installation and use of environmental air humidity, it is recommended to choose a hot-dip galvanized square pipe to avoid rusting.)
2, If the ground has a concrete foundation and the concrete thickness is not less than 80mm; then, we can directly use a plastic expansion plug to fix the aluminum alloy keel on the concrete ground.
3, pure dirt ground, and the need to raise the floor installation surface, we can first harden the ground floor by pouring concrete with galvanized pipe material column.
In general, the diameter and depth of the pit shall not be less than 300mm, the specification of the hot-dip galvanized pipe used to make the column shall not be less than 60*60mm, and the wall thickness of the pipe shall not be less than 2.5mm.
The span between the column and the column is controlled within 1800mm.
After completing the pillar pre-burial, weld galvanized pipe keel on the pillar, the specification is recommended to be above 40*60mm.
How to maintain the WPC decking?
After the creation is complete, we can’t help but ask, easy to maintain does it mean that you don’t have to worry about maintenance in the future? I am here to tell you in charge, never! The following editorial is also specially organized for you a few wood plastic products need to focus on the following places.
When walking on the wooden plastic floor, try to wear cloth slippers, barefoot is best.
Some special stains on the outdoor flooring, such as paint, ink, etc. can be used directly with a special stain removal oil to clean and wipe.
In the usual cleaning process, it is best not to use too wet a mop to mop the floor. If accidentally spilled on the water, wipe it clean with a soft cloth in time, and adhere it to dry.
Be careful to prevent rough, as well as hard objects, with sharp objects, and hard objects on the wooden floor dragging scratch hanging.
When placing tables and chairs, it is best to put protective pads on the landing. The root of the moisture-proof work is to be done before the floor paving, do not use the high moisture content of the plywood and wooden square when the installation, together with a good moisture-proof layer.
In fact, compared to the installation and post-care of deck composite, there is a more important point, that is, the choice of wood plastic products, choose the right one, can greatly reduce the cost of maintenance and other costs later.
