Evergrain, Composite Materials

View Evergrain

Evergrain

Evergrain by Epoch Composite Products, Inc. a Tamko company, is a lumber alternative made from recycled plastics and wood materials. It's primarily post industrial polyethylene and sawdust, containing over 50% recycled material.

It's highly resistant to moisture, insect and termite resistant. and comes in several colors including, Grey, Cedar, Redwood.


Performance Characteristics

A splinter free material with the workability of wood. It won't check, split or rot and can be routed, sanded, nailed, drilled and even turned on a lathe. No special tools are required and works with any deck fastener.


Safety Concerns

Relatively few safety concerns. When working with Evergrain, use protective clothing, dust mask and eye protection. A non-biodegradable product, it should be disposed of properly. Do not burn composite products.


Life Expectancy

Comes with a limited ten-year warrantee. Warranted against rotting, warping and mildewing


Average cost

Cost is less than a clear cedar deck, about $20 per square foot not including substructure. Deck boards run about $4.25 per square foot.


Maintenance

Virtually maintenance free, no need to paint or stain. Periodic cleaning may be necessary to remove dirt and restore to original color.


Installation

Evergrain will expand and contract with changes in temperature. Width-to width gapping is essential for both drainage and changes due to temperature extremes. An 1/8 inch gap will satisfy most installation conditions. End to end gapping is also necessary. Gap size will depend on length and temperature at installation versus the highest anticipated temperature for your region. At 16 foot length, allow 1/16 inch end gap for every 20 degrees Fahrenheit difference between installation temperature and the highest temperature expected during the year. Example: 80 degrees Fahrenheit at installation with 100 degree maximum temperature = 1/16 inch gap

Evergrain can be installed by hand nailing or by nail gun. Using screws rather than nails will alleviate the problem of nail heads popping up above the boards.

Evergrain is not intended for use as a load-bearing post, beam and joist or any other load bearing member. For best results, see current manufacturers installations instructions.


Summary

Evergrain is a good product as an alternative to a wood deck where low maintenance and the appeal of a wood look is desirable.
