How much gap should I leave for expansion or contraction when installing?

November 30, 2021

As temperatures fluctuate, composite deck boards will naturally experience thermal expansion and contraction. There should always be a gap between the butt ends of the boards to allow for expansion and contraction and a gap between the edges of the boards for water runoff. For more information, refer to COOWIN Deck Installation Instructions.
