Fasteners and Connectors
Ecolife® can be used in direct contact with aluminum products, even in continuously wet applications.

  • Use building-code approved, corrosion-resistant fasteners and connectors suitable for use in pressure-treated wood.
  • Hot-dipped galvanized steel is recommended and should conform to ASTM A153 for fasteners and ASTM A653, G185 for connectors.
  • For coastal installations, use code approved stainless steel.
  • Stainless steel offers the best protection. Type 304 or higher stainless steel is recommended for very wet environments such as poolside deck. Type 316 or higher is recommended for exposure to salt or saltwater.
  • Caution: Do not mix metals: Use stainless-steel fasteners with stainless-steel connectors and galvanized fasteners with galvanized connectors.

Installation Tips

  • Butt damp boards tightly together during installation as they will shrink slightly in width and length as they dry. 
  • Pre-drill holes at the ends of boards to help prevent splitting. 
  • Use screws to improve holding performance. 
  • Install fasteners flush to the wood surface. Do not overdrive fasteners. 
  • Place the best-looking side of a deck board face up.

Care for Your Treated Wood Project
Your outdoor project or deck should last for years. Keep it looking its best with the right wood and deck cleaners, sealers and stains to enhance its long-term beauty.

  • After installation, allow the wood to dry prior to applying any finish.
  • Test the wood with a few drops of water to see if the wood is dry enough to readily absorb the water. Apply the stain to a small portion of the deck to ensure that the wood is sufficiently dry. As soon as the wood is porous enough to accept the stain, it is ready to stain.
  • Apply a high-quality oil or water-based finish with UV protection to slow down the process of wood turning gray from exposure to the sun. Always follow finish manufacturer’s application instructions.
  • To provide long term aesthetic appeal for your deck or outdoor project, keep it free of dirt and debris, and apply a water repellent sealer every two years after initial staining and sealant are applied.
  • Liquid detergents, water and a stiff bristle brush will remove most mildew and dirt.
  • For hard to clean surfaces, use a deck brightener containing oxalic acid and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to retain the wood’s natural beauty.
  • Never use household chloride bleaches on wood as it can cause damage to the wood fibers and fasteners.
  • Use care if a pressure-washer is used for cleaning, as excessive pressure may cause damage to the wood.

Safe Practices When Working With Pressure-Treated Wood

  • Wear appropriate safety protection when working with treated wood products including gloves, goggles and dust mask.
  • Wash hands thoroughly with mild soap and water after working with treated wood.
  • Do not burn pressure-treated wood or use treated wood debris as mulch.
  • Pressure-treated wood should not be used where it may come into direct or indirect contact with drinking water or a component of food, animal feed or beehives.
  • Dispose of treated wood debris in accordance with local regulations.
