The durability of synthetic teak.
Maintenance plays a large role in the lifespan of any synthetic teak decking product. A product that often requires vigorous cleaning or sanding is going to wear faster than one that does not. Nuteak is 100% non-absorbent and therefore requires less maintenance then most marine flooring options. In most cases a Nuteak deck can be spot cleaned with soap and water when necessary and pressure washed 2 to 3 times a year.
Another factor that greatly adds to Nuteak’s durability is the fact that the material and color is constant through the full thickness of the product. The durability of other synthetic teak decking and composite products often relies on a surface layer that is 1-2mm thick, once this layer is worn through the deck will need to be replaced. With Nuteak serious damage or spills can be sanded with confidence because the material below the surface will look like a brand new piece of decking.
Discerning boat owners have been choosing Nuteak for years. No other deck covering combines the beauty and finish of teak with the durability and dependability of PVC. NuTeak will not rust or corrode. Stains, dents, and damage can easily be sanded away. If the damage has penetrated the full thickness of the product it can simply be welded shut with colour matched material. If the damage covers a larger area that section of the decking can be replaced without the need to replace the entire deck.
