Since the emergence of wood-plastic composite decking, outdoor flooring has begun to develop by leaps and bounds, because with this material, the user experience of outdoor flooring can be comparable to that of indoor flooring. There are many problems with wooden flooring, and composite materials can completely solve these problems. However, despite the many advantages, there are still many places that we need to pay attention to when installing wood plastic flooring. Here we will focus on two of them.
Leave a certain gap
Unlike our indoor use of flooring, when installing corrosion-resistant outdoor wood-plastic composite decking, we must reserve a certain gap, which is very important. If you forget to reserve the space, you will encounter many problems when using it. The reason for this is that drainage, cleaning, and slight thermal expansion need to be taken into account, and leaving a gap will greatly extend the service life of the floor. Although this material has very good moisture resistance, it will have a great impact if the water accumulates for a long time. Therefore, it is necessary to reserve a space for drainage to improve its use effect.
Can not be used as structural parts
The reason why wood flooring is popular with everyone is that it has a wide range of uses. For example, it is also very effective as a structural part. However, although corrosion-resistant outdoor wood-plastic composite decking has many advantages, it is impossible to achieve this aspect. The ordinary wood plastic decking cannot be used as a structural part, because its bending strength is far inferior to the wood floor. If there is a demand in this respect, we can consider modified glass fiber reinforced plastic wood, its bending strength is fully in line with our needs.
