TimberTech deck planks cannot be installed directly over an existing surface. However, with the use of a minimum of a 1-1/2” sleeper system supported by and connected to the substructure (concrete), TimberTech planks may be utilized in this application.
Best Practices for Installation
- Be sure to have provisions for drainage in place, because the supporting sleeper system cannot impede drainage.
- The sleeper system should be set to a maximum span for the specific decking profile of choice.
- As with any project, we recommend you review local building codes and if needed, consult a contractor prior to installation.
