Install Tongue & Groove Porch Decking

For a covered porch that you can enjoy all-year-round, Brazilian Koa Tongue & Groove Porch Decking is the best choice. Remember to design your deck with a pitch for water drainage. T&G decking is only suitable for covered areas such as sunrooms, covered patios and walkways.

1.   Tongue & Groove decking must be installed directly onto the joists, not a sub-floor, so that it can get adequate ventilation.

2.   At a 45° angle, predrill into the seam where the boards will meet.

3.   Drive a stainless steel trim head screw through your pilot hole and into the joist.

4.   Slide the next deck board into place. It should cover up the trim screw head.

If installed correctly, your porch should have a seamless surface. Enjoy your new porch!
