Benefits of composite decking
NewTechWood offers the best composite wood on the market with UltraShield protection. Decking boards are the number one long-lasting, splinter-free, and eco-friendly alternative to regular wood.
Two finishes to choose from
NewTechWood is the only company in Canada that offers two finishes on the same board. You can choose the brushed finish to accomplish a modern look or the wood grain finish to enhance traction around a swimming area. It's up to you!
Engineered to last for years
Our boards are protected on all four sides including the grooves against mould, colour fading and mildew. Because of this, your deck keeps looking good for years.
Safe to walk on barefoot
Composite is a 100% splinter-free solution and for added safety, we engineered hidden fasteners to reduce gaps and tripping hazards. This makes your patio, pool deck, and terrace completely safe to walk on, even barefooted.
Our composite decking
We use a 360-degree cap over the composite core, giving four sides of our boards the ultimate protection. During manufacturing, we extrude the shield and core under a high-temperature mold. With this process, we don’t use any harmful chemicals or adhesives to bind the cap to the core. As a result, your plastic-composite decking is better for the environment than other options.
UltraShield Naturale decking boards
Working with composite wood is so easy that your only challenge might just be determining the look and feel of your deck. When deciding on a shade, consider design, traction and sun exposure.

Our decking boards come in 2 lengths: 12 and 16 feet. You can also order 20 foot boards by special order. Please refer to our Profile Index for more information.
You can cover a little over 356 square feet with this product. Each 16-foot board covers just over seven square feet.
Each 12-foot US05 fascia board covers roughly 12 square feet.
No, the US33 board has only wood grain, on one side, and is smooth on the other side, with a groove for use with our starter clip.
The UH02 is 28 lbs per 16 feet, or 1.75 lbs per foot. The US33 is 40 lbs per 16 feet, or 2.5 lbs per foot.
Detailed information on joist spacing for the decking board can be seen in our installation guide, specifically in the Expansion and Contraction Values section, pages 6 to 8.
The installation video also provides some insight regarding this, starting at around 4 minutes. For North America, this is 12-16 inches, depending on application.
You would need an underlayment to have no water leak.
The clips are laid out one per joist, so at 16 inches on center, this comes to 12 clips per board.
Yes, they do. We do not have screws for sale, but additional clips can be purchased.
Yes, you can but would need to use our clip systems substituting the included screws with third-party self-tapping screws.
We would recommend using trim head screws specifically designed for composite decking. You could also pre-drill the decking boards and use a trim head wood screw.
Yes, this is possible but would require the boards to be structurally supported, every two feet or so.
No, we currently do not have plugs although we may have some later this year (2019). In the meantime, you can use a plug maker to achieve this look.
No, they cannot as they are not compatible.
Yes, you can and yes, it would still be under warranty.
Please keep in mind that because of the expansion and contraction nature of our material, there would need to be adequate spacing built into your installation. As a result, when installing in cold weather, you will want to build space for the boards to expand, and when installing in hot weather, you will want to install in such a way that the boards can contract without issue. Allowing your boards to acclimate to their environment before installing would serve as best practices. Detailed expansion and contraction values can be found on page 7 of the decking installation guide that you can find in our Technical Library.
We recommend using our US33 – Columbus Series boards with the starting clip for this. More information can be found in our installation guide, page 11 that you can find in our Technical Library.
Yes, they do.
Yes, we do! You can find more information about the end caps in our Literature and Videos section.
Yes, silicone sealant would be fine for attaching the plugs.
It would be difficult to say for sure, as we do not know the dimensions of the [other brand] decking boards. These end caps are designed to work with our hollow decking following the dimensions in this diagram:
You may check if the dimensions of the [other brand] would be the same. You may also order a bag of end as a test before purchasing the total quantity needed to complete your deck.
