4.1 Inspection & cutting to length
Before installing the deck boards it is important to check for possible colour variations between different batches. If they exist, it is best to mix the different batches together. If in doubt please contact your local dealer before installing.
4.2 As the boards are cut to length while still moving in the production process, to ensure perfect square ends and exact length requirements, it is recommended to trim the board ends before installation. It is important that the boards are cut at approximately the same temperature, otherwise the lengths will vary slightly when the temperature equalizes. Deck board end trimming at the edge of the deck is best done after installation using a circular saw with guide rail. For perfect finishes we recommend to chamfer the cut edges of the boards.
4.3 Before installation, the ends of UPM ProFi Piazza One deck boards may rise slightly. This has no effect on the deck properties and the boards automatically become flat again with installation on the rigid sub construction frame.
4.4 The boards can be cut and shaped in the same way and with the same tools as for timber decking.
