Penofin Penetrating Oil

Apr 15, 2016 | Posted in Product Spotlights By Devin Crawford-Tufts

Penofin Penetrating Oils

Penofin Penetrating Oil

Penofin is the leading brand in wood oil finishes, and Penofin Penetrating Oils keep your deck boards protected from the sun's harmful UV rays, mold and mildew. Penofin's stains and sealers can be used on brand new wood or bring aged wood back to life. These are not just your typical stain and sealers however, Penofin's oils actually replace natural wood oils that are lost in the wood during the milling process. This gives you a truly beautiful new look to your deck boards that you know will increase the longevity of your deck.

Penofin doesn't only deal in stains and sealers; they also have strippers, brighteners and cleaners available to prepare your boards to be stained. The Penofin Pro-Tech Complete Wood Care Kit is a three-step system to restore and prepare your wood surface for perfect stain results. Step 1 is the Penofin Pro-Tech Stripper and you only use this step if you need to remove a non-Penofin oil-based finish. The stripper softens most coatings in less than 30 minutes and will not raise the grain of your wood. Step 2 is the Penofin Pro-Tech Cleaner. Simply mix these powerful concentrated granules with water and apply it to your deck boards to clean stains, sap, grease, grime, mold and mildew. The final step is Penofin Pro-Tech Brightener. If you are having problems with tannins or watermarks on your new wood you can use Pro-Tech Brightener and remove all mill glaze. You can also use this concentrated formula to rejuvenate and brighten old wood that has grayed and weathered overtime.

DecksDirect.com is the largest stocking dealer of Penofin stains and because of this your order typically ships the same day. You can also receive free ground shipping on Penofin orders of $199 or more!

With Penofin's Pro-Tech products and Penofin's Penetrating Oil's your deck will be bright and beautiful in no time!

Get your deck ready for summer

Apr 13, 2016 | Posted in Messages and News By Devin Crawford-Tufts

Trex Hideaway Hidden Fastener System

Get Your Deck Ready For Summer!

Decks Direct wants to help you get your deck ready for summer with our deck cleaning, stain, and sealer products. Decks Direct offers only the highest quality stains, sealers, and cleaners for your deck, fence, or home. We even offer products that are specifically formulated for use with cedar, pressure-treated, composite, or hardwood deck boards.

The first thing you want to think about when you're getting your deck ready for summer is cleaning your existing deck, and this is possible with our Cleaners, Brighteners & Strippers. Ensuring that your decking boards are properly cleaned and are rid of any old stains, dirt and gunk is very important because you can get discoloration from board-to-board, leaving you with an inconsistent looking finish. A thorough cleaning and brightening will prepare your deck for staining and the end result will bring out the true beauty of your deck. Decks Direct offers cleaners and brighteners from both Messmer's Natural Wood Finishes and Penofin Penetrating Oil.

The next thing you'll want to consider when you're prepairing your deck ready for summer is stain. Decks Direct offers staining products from Penofin, Messmer's and Deckwise. There are a few factors that go into selecting the correct stain for your deck including what material your deck boards are, what color you are wanting to get from your stain, and even where you live.

Deck stain has a solvent in it called the Volatile Organic Compound, or V.O.C., that is released into the air as the stain dries and because of this you may or may not be able to use certain stains in certain areas of the United States. A 550 V.O.C. formula indicates that there are 550 grams of V.O.C.'s per liter, and a 250 V.O.C. formula indicates that there are 250 grams of V.O.C.'s per liter. Penofin has a zero V.O.C. option available with their Penofin Verde Interior/Exterior Formula. Check Decks Direct's V.O.C. map and see which V.O.C.'s are allowed in your state.

Once you have found what the V.O.C. limit is in your area, you can begin choosing which stain, or stains, you'll be using for your project. Penofin offers multiple different products for different applications. Penofin offers Red Label and Blue Label for your wood deck as their "workhorse" stain products. Penofin has an option for hardwoods with Penofin Exterior Hardwood Formula, an option for composite boards with Penofin Knotwood Composite Formula, and an option for pressure treated deck boards with Penofin for Pressure Treated Wood. There is even an option for your dock or a deck that is near water with Penofin Exterior Marine Oil Finish.

Messmer's also offers multiple different stains for different applications. Just as Red Label and Blue Label could be marked as the Penofin "workhorse" stain, UV Plus by Messmer's could be called the same thing. Messmer's also has an option for hardwoods with UV Plus for hardwoods, an option for pressure treated wood with the UV Plus Pressure Treated Formula, and an option for composites with Composite Deck Finish by Messmer's. Even if you have a type of exotic wood like teak or mahogany Messmer's has an option for you with Caribbean Extreme by Messmer's.

With this information you will now be able to more accurately prepare your deck for summer!

Trex Hideaway Hidden Fastener System

Mar 31, 2016 | Posted in Product Spotlights By Devin Crawford-Tufts

Trex Hideaway Hidden Fastener System

Trex Hideaway Hidden Fastener System

Today we round out the hidden fasteners with the Trex Hideaway Hidden Fastener System. This hidden fastener system integrates seamlessly with Trex decking and Trex railing. This system works with grooved boards, but Trex has made a groove cutter available for those of you who want hidden fasteners and have solid boards. This system has both stainless steel options as well as a metal framing fastener option to use on Trex's elevations metal framing!

The Trex Hideaway Stainless Steel Hidden Fasteners are specifically designed for Trex products; because they're made from stainless steel you are getting an added level of durability. The fasteners themselves are covered with a black oxide and a sealer topcoat and leave a 1/4" space between each board. These hidden fasteners come in a pack of 90 to cover 50 square feet or a bucket of 900 to cover 500 square feet.

The Trex Hideaway Universal Hidden Fasteners are not stainless steel but are made from glass-filled nylon. Similarly to the stainless steel fasteners, the universal fasteners create a 1/4" gap between each board. These fasteners also come in a pack of 90 to cover 50 square feet or a bucket of 900 to cover 500 square feet. The universal fastener is specifically designed for Trex grooved deck boards.

Tiger Claw Hidden Deck Fasteners

Camo Hidden Deck Fastening System

Tiger Claw Hidden Deck Fasteners

Continuing on our trail of hidden deck fasteners, we come across Tiger Claw Hidden Deck Fasteners. Tiger Claw was developed with the idea of simplifying the hidden deck fastening system while also attempting to make it more economic. With Tiger Claw you get a safer, longer lasting and superior looking deck without breaking the bank! This hidden fastening system is great for composite, synthetic, and wood boards, both grooved and solid. Depending on the decking that you are using for your project, you can choose from multiple different Tiger Claw options.

The Tiger Claw TC-G hidden fasteners are specifically made for creating a nail-free deck surface with 5/4” thick and larger grooved boards that are manufactured from composites and hardwoods.

The Tiger Claw TC2S hidden fasteners are specifically designed for a nail/screw-free surface on softwoods with a thickness of 1" and thicker.

The Tiger Claw TC3S hidden fasteners were designed to create a nail/screw-free deck surface on composite of synthetic decking boards. These hidden fasteners provide an automatic 3/16" spacing for your boards.

The Tiger Claw TC4S hidden fasteners are designed specifically for creating a nail/screw-free deck surface for hardwood decking. These fasteners are recommended for use in 3/4" or 5/4" decking with up to 4" nominal width.

The Tiger Claw TC-120 were designed for creating a nail/screw-free deck surface with 3/4" thick grooved boards that are mahogany or ironwood.

The Tiger Claw Proclip was designed for AZEK PVC decking, but can be used with most PVC decking that is no less than 1" thick.

Tiger Claw also has a gun available; if you're a deck builder this is a "MUST HAVE" item. The Pneumatic Gun by Tiger Claw drastically decreases the time it takes to install decking and has a full replacement warranty. To go along with the pneumatic gun, Tiger Claw also has nailscrews and stainless steel nailscrews available.

Just in case you have solid standard boards but want grooved boards, Tiger Claw also has the TC Slot Cutter so you can groove your own boards!

Camo Hidden Deck Fastening System

Mar 18, 2016 | Posted in Product Spotlights By Devin Crawford-Tufts

Camo Hidden Deck Fastening System

Camo Hidden Deck Fastening System

Imagine that you've spent hours coming up with the perfect layout for your new decking project. You went out and found the perfect brand and material of decking boards. You lay out everything you needed for your beautiful new deck, but then you install the deck and have screw holes everywhere! Your beautiful new deck is now an unsightly screw graveyard.

Camo is here to help get you the flush, clean, non-screw look that you want with their Hidden Deck Fastening System.. With Camo you can use their hidden fastening system with treated lumber, composite, hardwood, cedar, and PVC deck boards. Plus, when you shop with DecksDirect.com and spend over $99 you'll receive free shipping! Why buy Camo's hidden fastener system? Because this system is made to accommodate you.

Depending on what size decking board, what material, and what end look you want, Camo has a tool for you with their Marksman line of tools. The Camo Marksman - Edge Unit is great for installing pressure-treated boards directly next to each other with no spacing between boards. The Camo Edge Pro tool allows you to stand up while installing your fasteners and, like the Edge unit, has no spacing between boards (spacers can be added if desired). The Edge Pro tool also has a drill that is included and uses Camo's Collated Hidden Fasteners for added speed of installation. The Camo Marksman - Pro Unit is Camo's heavy duty contractor-grade tool. This tool leaves an automatic 3/16" gap between 6" deck boards and can be used with several different types of materials. The Camo Marksman - Pro - X1 Unit is the same tool as the Marksman Pro, but instead of a 3/16" gap between boards you will get a 1/16" gap. To round the list off, we have the Camo Marksman - Pro - NB Unit, which is the tool that should be used if your deck boards are 3-1/4" - 5" wide. Camo also offers hidden deck clips and driver bits that will fit with their systems.
