What to expect when first unpacking your Millboard

When you take your first look at your new Millboard decking boards, you will be amazed at the attention to detail, craftsmanship, and quality before you. You'll notice how lightweight yet durable the boards are, ready for immediate use.

There are a few things we advise users to be aware of before diving in and building that dream project:

  • A release agent will be present on the surface of the boards when you take delivery of them, which may give a slightly shiny effect. This release agent has been applied so that the finished board can easily be removed from our moulds and will disperse in the weeks following installation.
  • Like wood, no two Millboard decking boards are the same colour, with the subtle differences giving the most natural appearance. This is to give your decking all the good looks of a timber deck, but all the structural benefits of a composite deck.
  • Our boards are moulded under extreme pressure and not extruded, so some dimensional variance is expected. The tolerances that we permit for the size of our decking boards are limited to: Width: ± 3mm. Length: ± 5mm. Thickness: ± 2mm. 
  • As with timber, it may be necessary to trim the ends of the boards during installation, in order to achieve a flush, clean finish.
