At TimberTech, we offer two different types of composite deck boards with features that influence installation (and thus their final look):
Boards with capped grooves along both sides that are secured with hidden fastening under the surface.
Solid (more on that below) boards that utilize top-down fasteners that are typically color-matched screws and plugs.

Solid, sturdy boards with a flat bottom similar to traditional lumber for strength and a more solid feel underfoot.
