Can You Screw Down WPC Decking?

in WPC Decking Tips 2022-05-13

WPC Decking is similar to wood. Although it is made of recycled plastic and wood fiber, you can still drive nails or screws into it like wood. Screws can be seen on the floor surface with this traditional fastening method.

You cannot drill or screw through the hollow composite board because the screws will loosen and rise over time. Like the ordinary wooden floor, you can also choose solid composite decking boards. In general, WPC Decking often has a higher density than wood, and you may need to pre drill the boards before tightening them with screws.

With the progress of technology, we prefer to use our hidden fasteners to install WPC Decking. Techwoodn sells panels with grooves on both sides and uses a hidden fixing system to firmly connect the floor to the joist to ensure consistent panel spacing. It is not only easy to install, but also does not need to use nails or screws to affect its appearance.
