TimberTech Earthwood Evolutions Question


I recently installed a deck of Earthwood Evolutions decking for a customer and it appears as if there are scuff marks in some places from my boots. My boots are thorogood roofers with white wedge soles, I have never had this problem with any other deck surface.

You really can only see them in direct sunlight, but the customer is unhappy. And I don't blame them as this stuff is pricy stuff.

I took everyone precaution to prevent scratching so it isn't that, it really looks like a scuff. Anyone have any suggestions on how to remove them?

I no longer use it because I went through the same thing a few years Thank goodness the customer was cool. Here I thought they improved the product.

Is it this stuff? If so I noticed it damaged easier then the other composites. Chit was 4.50 a lineal as well!

Yes that's the stuff. I thought this was supposed to be some top of the line polymer coated composite that is very resistant to scratching. Not sure at this point what I am going to do to remedy the situation.

Go over them with a heat gun CAREFULLY.

Very carefully! There's not much time between obscurring the scuffs and scorching it.

Thanks guys, heat gun seems to have done the trick. Still think this stuff is way to easy to scuff

Yes, VERY CAREFULLY.

I always tell people to test on scrap, and to also burn scrap with the heat gun so they can see what it looks like BEFORE they get too far.
