Do I Need Special Tools To Work With Plastic Lumber?
No, no special tools are required for building with plastic lumber. Standard woodworking tools can be used to cut, drill, and router plastic boards. In fact, nails and screws are retained 30% in a board made from plastic vs a wood board.
I Live On The Beach – Can I Use Plastic Lumber?
Absolutely! Plastic lumber can withstand sun, sand, wind, and saltwater better than wood. Our lumber has been used to build boardwalks, decks, and docks all along both the East Coast and West Coast of the United States and those structures have lasted for decades. We encourage shore home and business owners to also take a look at our vinyl pergolas and vinyl railing systems, perfect for shore structures.
Aside from being waterproof, plastic lumber is an excellent choice for hot climates because it doesn’t become uncomfortably hot to walk on when exposed to the sun.
Does Plastic Lumber Stain?
No, plastic lumber doesn’t stain. It doesn’t absorb water or oils, making it very easy to clean up spilled wine, food, and other messes.
