VEKAdeck Performance

Performance characteristics such as long life, high durability, low maintenance requirements along with a high return on investment and the materials environmentally friendly status make it an ideal board for residential and commercial dock applications. VEKAdeck® is the perfect way to add value and beauty to your home.

ICC Evaluation Service, the leading source of technical information on building codes, building products, and building technology, has evaluated residential use of VEKAdeck.

While being tested for structural properties, durability and surface burning characteristics, VEKAdeck has been shown to be a superior decking surface when installed in accordance with local building codes.

As an alternative to both naturally durable lumber and composite deckboards, VEKAdeck has the added benefit that it may be used in direct contact with the ground without absorbing moisture or rotting.
