Installation tips

We'd like your Kayu™ deck installation to go as smoothly as possible, with the finished product's appearance and performance maximized for your enjoyment. To this end, we recommend the following:

Prior to installation

Keep all your deck material clean and dry prior to treating and installation

Treat your deck materials with a penetrating sealer on all 6 sides prior to installation.

Consult your dealer as to the best weather treatment for your area. finishes with fungicides, mildewcides and UV inhibitors will help keep your deck looking it's best longer.

Installation

Kayu™ decking is kiln dried; there is almost no shrinkage. Like all woods though, it will absorb moisture and may expand.. Please make sure to leave at least 1/4" between 5-1/2" boards and at least 3/16" between 3-1/2" boards side to side, to avoid buckling as the wood expands. Shrinkage/expansion length wise is nil, so trim the ends neatly and butt together tightly.

The interlocking grain of Kayu™ meranti decking products machines and takes screws and nails very well. However, we are more partial to galvanized dipped nails or stainless steel screws. Pilot holes 3/4" from the ends of the boards minimizes splitting as does nailing in at least 3/4" from the sides of the boards. Fasteners should penetrate 1-1/2" or more into the deck joists.

Maintenance

Finally, after a year or so of use, simple maintenance will revitalize the wear and tear from the seasons of use. please consult your decking dealer for the best method to maintain the 'unique beauty' of your Kayu™ decking.
