How do I clean Horizon Decking?
For general cleaning, use soap and water or mild household cleaners.
Is there a pattern repeat with Horizon Decking?
There are four different grain patterns used with Horizon decking. The patterns are different on the front and back of the boards, giving each piece a more natural look. Both the grain patterns and the color streaking repeat every 70 feet.
Can I power wash Fiberon Decking products?
Skilled professionals may use a pressure washer with wide fan tips, at low pressures under 3,000 psi and at safe distances, 10" above deck. In the wrong hands, your composite deck could be damaged. Exercise extreme caution. Improper use could lead to damage of the surface, and void your warranty coverage.
Does Fiberon make any type of board end cap or system to cover the exposed ends?
Fiberon does not offer end caps or any other system to cover the ends or grooved edges of our decking. To create a more finished appearance, consider “picture-framing” the space by installing square edge boards around the deck’s perimeter (see example below). Square edge boards have solid sides, so the look will be smooth and polished.
Can Fiberon Decking be installed over existing joists and framing?
Yes, Fiberon Decking can be installed over an existing substructure if the following conditions are met:
- The existing framework must be free of any damage or decay; i.e., in good, workable condition (consider having the space assessed by a licensed deck inspector)
- The joists must be spaced correctly
- There must be adequate cross ventilation and unobstructed airflow under 50% of the deck. Allow a minimum of 1.5 inches (4 cm) between bottom of joist and the ground. Water must be able to flow away from under the deck. Improve drainage or grade flat areas where standing water may gather, and do not install decking directly to an existing or solid surface.
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.
