Before you install your Deckorators deck it is highly recommended that you take a look at the warranty and installation guides provided by Deckorators.
To avoid making installation mistakes, have a read of the Voyager Installation guide for further instructions and requirements. Be sure to always use the recommended tools and accessories as mentioned in the installation guide. Incorrect usage of tools or products may void your warranty.
For warranty claims & information, open the DKLimitedWarranty guide.
To reduce any colour variation, it is recommended that you purchase all your decking material at the same time as manufacturing runs can sometimes have a slight variance.
Like any other composite, there will be slight variations board to board in colour due to the natural occurring variations of polymers. If the colour is not acceptable do not install your boards.
To remove any surface dirt or build up, washing with a soap/mild detergent and warm water is recommended.
As mentioned in the Voyager Decking Installation Guide, a pressure washer is not recommended to 'blast' dirt/debris from your deck. The harsh pressure can lead to damaging the boards by pushing the dirt/spores deeper into the decking boards.
If you purchase a cleaning product for your deck, it is vital that it is intended for your application and correct decking boards. It is always useful to spot test any chemicals or cleaners before using them on your deck.
Always be sure to use the correct PPE when using chemical to clean your deck.
Ensure that you follow the guidelines in the installation PDF for correct assemblage using the Deckorators Sleeper System. Using incorrect spacing or application could lead to voiding your warranty. For more information on the sleeper system installation, visit the Deckorators installation guide.

However, if your deck does get dirty, NewTechWood recommends cleaning it with water using a mop or broom to remove any build up of dirt or dust. For any stains it is recommended that you clean it immediately by flushing the area with water and proceeding to lightly scrub the area with warm soapy water.

Because you chose a composite decking for you project it means that you don't have the hassles of ongoing maintenance or require any staining, painting or oiling. If you deck does get dirty it will require a light clean to remove dirt and debris. Using unauthorised chemicals or cleaners may void your warranty. For tips on basic cleaning, stains and damage see the below PDF for the PermaTimber approved Guide for care and maintenance:
See the Outback website for installation guides and warranty information. Not following installation guides may result in the voiding of your warranty.
For information on general care and maintenance see the section above for tips on how to keep your deck looking its best.
Your composite decking boards are made from a combination of recycled plastic and plantation wood flour. When new there may be some residual tannins in the wood flour component of your decking boards. This tannin will leach out of the board the first few times that the deck board is wet and will appear as a water stain after the board has dried. This water (tannin) stain can be removed by washing with water if required otherwise it will disappear after the board has been wet/dried several times. You will also notice the softening of the surface colour as the board is exposed to the weather over the first 4-12 weeks. This natural weathering effect varies across the colour range.
Keep it clean and your composite decking will reward you with years of low maintenance enjoyment. General cleaning with a broom or mop will suffice for most situations, however if you want to give a better clean a dilute solution of sugar soap and warm water and scrubbing brush can be used.
If damp leaves are allowed to build up or the deck is in a shaded damp site mould or mildew may develop.
Composite decking is susceptible to stains from BBQ grease, oil, and the tannin in some vegetation. Best results are achieved if the stain is treated immediately with absorbent cloths then apply a degreaser as per the manufacturer's instructions. Follow up with a general clean with sugar soap and warm water.
Scratches can be removed with a light sand using 80 100 grit sandpaper, following the grain of the board. The colour and texture changes which occur after this will recede with weathering.
Composite decking has an antifungal agent added during the manufacturing process.
This means your decking is protected against mould, mildew and germs, including bacteria. We recommend that you regularly sweep your deck and periodically wash any dirt and debris from the surface making sure that twigs and leaves do not build up between the boards.
Mould or mildew may develop on the deck if foreign matter and dirt is allowed to build up on the boards. If this occurs we recommend that you wash down your deck using a mild solution of warm water and sodium hypochlorite (bleach). Make sure that you follow the manufacturer's recommendations for use and always test the solution in a non prominent area of your deck first. You can use a pressure washer but do not run this at greater than 8Kpa (1200 PSI) or position the nozzle within 300mm from the deck surface as this may mark the surface of the deck.
We suggest a mat under your BBQ to protect from grease stains, and plastic protectors under metal furniture or planters to prevent gouging and potential rust stains. Avoid dragging heavy items over the deck as it will scratch. Scratches can be dealt with by giving a light sand, following the grain of the wood as described above.
Test any treatment, cleaning products or sanding on a spare or obscured piece of decking to check for changes first.
After any cleaning has been performed, hose off and use an old towel wrapped around your deck scrub or a rubber scraper to remove the excess water. On a warm day the deck should dry with no water marks in a few moments
