What’s the difference between original Good Life Decking and new Multi-Chromatic Good Life Decking?
Original Good Life Decking in Cabin and Cottage resemble traditional painted deck boards. The colors are mono-chromatic, solid shades. New Multi-Chromatic Good Life Decking features subtle and dramatic streaks of color, giving the boards a look that mimics tropical hardwoods. All four colors have the same protective outer layer on three sides, the same solid composite core, and the same warranty coverage.
What does the term "multi-chromatic" mean?
Multi-chromatic is a term used to describe the varied light and dark streaking on certain composite decking. By adding different colors at precise moments during the manufacturing process, we are able to create a more nuanced color palette on a single board – something you might also call multi-dimensional color.
How do I clean Good Life Decking?
For general cleaning, use soap and water or mild household cleaners.
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. One more note: Good Life Decking does not work with Cortex hidden face fasteners. Use composite deck screws for Good Life square-edge boards and Fiberon Phantom fasteners for grooved-edge boards.
What type of surface fasteners are recommended for Good Life Decking?
We recommend 2.5-inch #8 or #10 stainless steel or composite screws for surface-fastening Good Life Decking. Do not use Cortex fasteners, or any other fastener with a plug. Here’s why: Good Life Decking has a scalloped bottom. The scallops are located on the underside of where you would insert the screw. Because those areas are naturally thinner, the screw does not have sufficient material to grab. This results in a less secure installation and a far greater risk of cracking over time due to pressure/vibrations.
Am I able to cut Fiberon railings to custom size? If so, what is the best kind of saw and blade to use?
Yes, Fiberon Symmetry, and Horizon railing can be cut down to fit between existing
posts. We recommend using a sharp 32-tooth carbide-tipped blade – 32
teeth or more will cut it neat and clean.
Do Fiberon products require water sealing?
No. Fiberon products require only periodic cleaning with soap and water. Deck sealants are not required or recommended.
