TruNorth® Solid Core Decking: Smart Home Investment

TruNorth® Solid Core Decking: Smart Home Investment

Julian Mossanen |

When it comes to enhancing your outdoor living space, selecting the right decking material is crucial. Not only does it impact the aesthetics of your home, but it also plays a significant role in ensuring long-term durability and low maintenance. Enter TruNorth® Solid Core decking, a product renowned for its superior quality and longevity, making it an intelligent investment for any homeowner.

Durability and Longevity

TruNorth® Solid Core decking is engineered to withstand the toughest outdoor conditions. Its solid core construction is designed to prevent common issues that plague traditional wood decking, such as warping, rotting, and splintering. Crafted with precision and advanced materials, TruNorth® Solid Core decking is built to last, ensuring your outdoor oasis remains stunning for years to come. Solid core boards are also ‘stiffer’ and less flexible than hollow boards and can hold more weight. There are also some municipalities that require solid boards to meet building codes, so this is perfectly designed for those instances. 

Low Maintenance

One of the most significant advantages of TruNorth® Solid Core decking is its minimal maintenance requirements. Unlike traditional wood decking, which demands constant sealing, staining, and refinishing TruNorth® Solid Core decking requires little more than occasional cleaning. This not only saves you time and effort but also reduces the long-term costs associated with maintaining your outdoor space. Unlike other composite boards on the market, TruNorth® composite does not contain any wood filler, making it more fire retardant and not prone to rotting or molding.

Moreover, TruNorth® Solid Core decking can significantly enhance the curb appeal and overall aesthetics of your property. With its superior quality and attention to detail, your outdoor oasis will be the envy of the neighborhood.

Environmental Benefits

In today's world, sustainability is a significant consideration for responsible homeowners. TruNorth® Solid Core decking is an eco-friendly choice, utilizing recycled materials in its construction. By choosing TruNorth®, you are not only investing in your home but also contributing to a greener future.

With its exceptional durability and minimal maintenance requirements, TruNorth® Solid Core decking eliminates the need for frequent repairs and replacements, ultimately saving you money over time.

Furthermore, investing in TruNorth® Solid Core decking can significantly increase the resale value of your home.

We offer TruNorth® Solid Core Composite Decking in three convenient lengths to suit different project needs: 12 feet, 16 feet, and 20 feet.

Not sure how much decking material you require?

To determine the amount of decking needed, measure your deck's square footage and multiply by 2.28. Add 10% for cut-off waste. For instance, a 10 ft. x 10 ft. deck equals 100 sq. ft. x 2.28 = 228 linear feet plus 10%, totaling 251 ft. If ordering 12' boards, divide 251 ft. by 12 ft. to get approximately 21 boards needed. This calculation is automated on our product page. Additional accessories are available in smaller packages if needed.

To determine the number of fastening clips needed, use 2.5 clips per square foot for joists on 16" centers and 5 clips per square foot for joists on 12" centers. Our automated calculations assume 16" centers, so adjust accordingly if using 12" centers. Please note these calculations serve as a guide, and we do not guarantee 100% accuracy. We are not responsible for over or under-ordering materials, and retrun must comply with our policy.
