FAQs About Outdoor WPC Decking

The side slotting of outdo or wood-plastic floor means that there is a groove running through the length of the floor on both sides of the floor. The function of this groove is to allow the floor to be installed with invisible installation fasteners. The floor will be tightly fixed to the keel, and then the next floor will be installed.

1. Is there any difference between grooved and non-grooved outdoor WPC decking?

2. What size gap should be kept between outdoor WPC deckings?


The WPC decking floor (side-to-side) should have at least a 3/16 inch gap to ensure proper drainage and ventilation. And (through the gap) can clean up some small debris. In addition, make sure that there is a gap of at least 6mm between the edge of the floor and the permanent building. All gap requirements are clearly required in the warranty.


3. How to clean up the blockage between the WPC decking floor gaps?


If the gap between the edges of the two floors does not reach 3/16 inch, some plant residues such as fallen leaves, weeds, or pollen residues will remain on the floor surface or block the gap. These things will form some stains that are not easy to clean on the surface of the wood-plastic floor.


Long-term stagnant water will also easily cause some swelling of the floor, which will eventually lead to cracking and warping. If the gap between the floors is blocked, you can wash it with water and use a scraper or similar tools to clear the blockage. Please be careful not to scratch the wood-plastic floor during operation.
