Experience with Resysta siding and decking

  • 1.  Experience with Resysta siding and decking

    Posted 08-01-2018 14:49

    Good afternoon,

    I'm doing research on a building material called Resysta Gold Decking 1" x 5 ½" in 12' lengths.

     

    Have any of you had any positive or negative experience in using this wood alternative material?  I have heard of several issues related to defects such as;  warping, fading, discoloration, expansion / contraction issues or any others that you have experienced.

    Do you know of any claims related to this material?

     

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Hello everybody....... I'm using Resyta boards here in Dubai for landscaping , harbour decking, and around pools.. for more than 5 years they are ok with no issues.. The most important thing is Installation over solid , well compacted, and stable base, such as reinforced concrete slab. In case of installation over beams , the joint should be hinged not fixed to allow slight movement. Good feeling while walking on it barefoot.....
