Mounting of the terrace board. Material specifications
The terrace board is in demand in the marketbuilding materials. It can be of two types: deck (smooth) and relief. Rough surface has become more common, as it prevents slipping.
Installation of the terrace board begins with the preparationThe base, which is done with a slight slope from the building.

If the surface is fairly flat - for example, slabs, or a concrete base, then the lags are laid directly on them.
Professionals say that, beforestart the installation of the terrace board, the products must be maintained at the place where they will be located. Do not recommend running work at negative temperatures. The material must be laid on logs, but not on the ground or foundation. A prerequisite for good styling is the presence of a gap to allow ventilation. Without compensation gap, deformation of products can occur. The stretching and contraction of the profiles is possible because of temperature fluctuations, so we must anticipate this fact in advance.
Installation of the terrace board begins with the preparation of the necessary inventory. To build a terrace you will need the following tool:
- a circular saw;
- crosses for gaps;
- gloves and glasses.
Which material is more suitable for terraces? Experts say that this is larch. The installation of a terrace board from larch requires constant prevention.

Characteristics of larch:
- beautiful appearance;
- good density;
- rich color scale;
- high resistance to decay;

Installation of a terrace board, the price of material and work in thethe result is considerable. For example, if the board costs 285 rubles. for the meter, then its installation will cost another 500 rubles. per square meter. If you want to use cheaper similar wood, you can buy a deck board.
Products are divided into the following categories: extra, prima, A, V. The boards of the highest category - extra-class - have no damage; they have no cracks and knots. The variety "prima" has several healthy knots and cracks, as well as resinous formations. Products belonging to category A, there are healthy and dark knots, and also there are cracks. In addition to all the listed properties, wood of category B on the front side can have shells. Mounting of the terrace board is carried out by open and hidden masonry methods.
Material for the terrace of WPC (wood-polymercomposites) has collected all the best properties. Wood and plastic have an ideal appearance. It is their unequal ratio that different producers use so successfully.
