TimberTech Tropical Collection decking boards have the appearance of authentic hardwood. They’re also tough enough for Ontario weather. TimberTech Tropical Collection Antique Palm has a vivid reddish-brown color to make any deck the envy of the neighborhood. These decking boards also have the durability that comes from advanced polymer technology.
These composite boards are capped on all four sides by a protective shell. The tough outer layer ensures that TimberTech Tropical Collection Antique Palm boards resist staining, scratching, and fading. They’re also proofed against mold, mildew, and moisture.
TimberTech decking products also come with a 25-year scratch and stain warranty. This deck will still look as good as new, decades after installation.
Actual Dimensions – 0.94″ x 5.36″ (23.88 mm x 136.14 mm)
Length – 12′, 16′, and 20′ (366 sm, 488 sm, and 610 sm)
Shape of boards – available in both grooved and square-edged varieties (16′ and 20′ only)
TimberTech Tropical Collection Antique Palm decking boards have it all. No regular maintenance is required. Plus, the boards are easy to install. Most contractors prefer to use CONCEALoc® hidden fasteners, which ensure a sheer, fastener-free surface. FUSIONLoc® hidden fastener systems also work well with TimberTech products.
However, some contractors use square-edged boards for the main deck and for picture framing, stairs, and skirting. In these cases, the TOPLoc™ Face Fastening System is the best option. Cortex fasteners are another option. They’re made from the same material as the deck’s boards—so the entire deck will have a smooth, unbroken appearance.
Remember: The deck’s underneath joist must be 16” on-center. When installing the decking boards diagonally, the underneath joists’ structure must be 12” on-center. In that case, the customer will end up spending around 35 percent more on fasteners than they would with joists 16” on-center.
TimberTech Tropical Collection Antique Palm has a unique appearance that truly stands out as a main deck without picture framing. However, these boards can be accentuated by a darker picture frame. Go with TimberTech Tropical Collection Amazon Mist—the solid-gray boards look great alongside the soft brown of Antique Palm.
All TimberTech Tropical Collection boards come with included raisers and fascia boards (0.56” x 7¼” x 12’ & 0.56” x 11.75” x 12’, respectively). The raisers and fascia boards come in the same color as the main deck boards.
