Re: New Stuff To Me

Good stuff.
read the instructions.
16 works for straight, 12 for angles- which is different from most other TT products!

you'll love the weight of it, but it dosn't stack so well...

Oh, and we'll need pictures!

Re: New Stuff To Me

Held up against scratching well while going in. It does move with temp, so follow gaping instructions to cover yourself.
I used the conceal lock fasteners on a large deck. Triangle at 50'+ along long edge so used 20' boards. Seems they will let the boards move a bit more in regards to expansion then screws do. This was pool side so hidden fasteners was more important.
