Create a stunning border that's sure to catch attention with Starter Boards from Barrette. Featuring one grooved edge and one square edge of the board, Starter Boards are perfect when using a picture frame layout or another unique deck design where exposed edges of deck boards would commonly be noticed. Starter Boards create a clean, finished appearance while still delivering the top-of-the-line strength and beauty the Barrette guarantees. From your deck perimeter to mounting stair treads, Barrette Starter Boards help you gain a complete look for your backyard project.

Featuring CoolTrac™ Advantage, Barrette Starter Boards are rafted with a polypropylene outer shell, engineered to stay cooler than other composite deck boards for an incredibly long-lasting and enjoyable outdoor space.

Barrette Starter Boards are created in 16 foot lengths and are available in the premium finishes of Brazilian Cherry, Coastal Gray, Garapa Grey, Golden Teak, Mocha, Slate, and Tropical Walnut.

Install your Starter Boards securely from the beginning with the Pro Plug System For Barrette Decking With Epoxy Coated Screws And Tool By Starborn (sold separately).
