Pre-Grooving
Hidden deck fastenings, such as the ArchiDecks we exclusively supply, typically clip into grooves that have been cut into the side of adjacent decking boards with a biscuit jointer. This can be a time consuming process that increases fitting times and costs. As such, we offer a unique pre-grooving service for the hardwood decking boards we supply. For a small fee per linear metre, we will cut a groove into the centre of both sides of your decking boards, along their entire length. This will allow you to fit clips wherever required.
Limitations
We are unable to pre-groove any of our oak decking boards as we do not recommend they are used with hidden fastenings. Oak has a tendency to shrink and expand so requires fastening with deck screws. We also cannot offer this service for decking boards that have a grooved profile, as the rebate we machine along the boards length comes to within a few millimetres of the dip of the face groove. As such, we recommend that boards with a grooved profile are rebated on site with a biscuit jointer. This will have no structural impact as cuts are only made in the few positions required for the clips to fix into.
