the decking boards: make sure align the boards as possible on your first
row, the other decking boards follow the installation easier. Ensure a
spacing of at least 5 mm between each decking board and a 1 or 2mm setting
butt. Each holes for the screws are drilled with a drill bit of 4.5 mm. The
screws are Pozidriv (PZ2) A2 stainless steel (A4 at best) with a diameter
of 55 up to 60 mm length.
is a very good idea to share the work: one that marks the places to drill
and screw and the other makes the holes. With practice, in the fact making
the markings is much faster than that pierces.
the end of the day, we are able to evaluate the speed of installation: 32
min for 1.5 m2. If we stick to it, there should be 26x32 min = 853 min =
14h job for about 40 m2!

the angle and the side with a circular saw and a mason rule in conducted
following a line cord. A rectangle is left intentionally blank to put white
pebbles and a cypress area.
must act quickly, the day ends and its forecast rain tomorrow!
the finished work for a small terrace but it remains to sand a few brands,
put a humidifier and regularly maintain knowing that sooner or later gray
wood and a base will be necessary before ironing a saturator ....
therefore wish good luck to those who will engage in this type of
