How do I remove tree sap from my decking?
Because tree sap is especially sticky, neither ordinary deck cleaners nor power washing will work. We recommend using WD40 to remove the sap. Be sure to follow all manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Please note that WD40 also is effective in removing the labels that are found on the boards when they arrive at the job site.
How do I remove the label adhesive from my Fiberon deck Boards?
When you remove the labels that come standard on our deck boards, there may be some adhesive left behind. We recommend WD40, denatured alcohol or PVC pipe cleaning liquid as the most effective means of removing this adhesive. Traditional deck cleaner or power washing may not remove the adhesive completely.
What makes Good Life Decking different from your other decking lines?
Good Life Decking has a scalloped bottom. All our other deck boards have a flat bottoms. The scalloped design requires less decking material. Consequently, the boards are priced comparably to pressure-treated lumber – making this a smart choice when budget is a top consideration. Like our other decking lines, Good Life is available in multi-chromatic and solid colors. There’s a durable cap layer for stain and fade resistance, and solid composite construction to prevent splintering, cracking, insect infestation, and decay.
