Step 1

Start by working out the area of your desired decking area in square metres. To do this simply measure the area in metres and multiply the length by the width. If the area of your project is not a simple rectangle then you will need to divide it into ‘rectangles’ and calculate each area individually.

The number of boards required depends on the chosen board length (2.2m or 2.9m) and the direction the boards are laid.

Please note that the natural hardwood fibres contained within this product can cause variations in the colour of the boards. This can be seems slightly different when ordering boards in different lengths and grooves of different widths or plane

In addition, we would like to remind you as bellow:

1. The board may be damaged during the transportation or handling process, so please add more than the result of your calculation.
