(3) Hardwood decking products are carefully selected and inspected to ensure the quality.

Ligneum Merbau Decking decking is not warranted against improper use and must be installed as per installation guidelines.

Ligneum Merbau Decking does not cover:

  • Improper installation, including incorrect gaping.
  • Movement or distortion from the ground or supporting structure on which the decking is installed
  • Staining from foreign substances including but not limited to dirt, oil & grease.
  • Ordinary wear and Tear.
  • Dimensional change or “cupping” of the boards. This can occur after installation. Many different circumstances can cause cupping including poor ventilation or incorrect joist spacing. This is true for all wood species.

The main reason board’s cup is from moisture. Ventilation of the deck is a key factor. If the deck is low to the ground and the ground does not drain fast enough, the evaporating moisture rises and is trapped underneath the deck.

When the bottoms of the boards dry more slowly than the top of the board which has free air flow and sunlight, the boards may cup. The best prevention is to allow ventilation under your decking.

Installation Info

WARNING: MERBAU Timber contains tanning which can "bleed" from the timber when you install.

To avoid "tannin bleed" there are few things that you can do:

* Wash the timber down with water 3-4 times before installation to help flush out the tannins.

* Allow it to weather for 6-8 weeks.

* Seal the timber with a quality decking oil or decking sealant on all sides and cut ends before installing.

* Avoid installing near brickwork,above light coloured paving as the leaked tannin is likely to cause permanent staining particularly if left to dry out.

* Please make sure to wash away any leaked tannin with water immediately to avoid staining.
