For the floor on the back porch of the Kuppersmith Project house, we installed low maintenance, Fiberon composite decking from their Horizon series, which comes with a 20-year warranty against staining or fading.
Since it’s manufactured using 74% recycled material, Fiberon composite decking is an eco-friendly choice as well.
To keep from marring the rich, beautiful ipê finish of the composite decking, we used hidden deck fasteners with stainless steel screws.
Once the decking had been installed, a chalk line was popped, and the end of the decking cut to length using a circular saw. Edge dressing was applied to the cut ends of the decking to match the finish.
