Hidden decks look fantastic, and they look even more attractive if they are made using composite decking starter clips. They are completely hidden, leaving only the smooth, seamless surface of your deck visible to you and your guests. They also eliminate the risk of a nail or screw becoming exposed and causing an injury over time. Overall, they are an excellent choice for many composite deck builders. But did you know that hidden deck clips aren't the only kind of fasteners you'll need to build a squeaky-clean deck? You should also use starter clips to ensure that every inch of your deck is flawless!
Composite Decking Starter clips, as the name suggests, are a type of deck clip used to install the first composite deck board on the open end of your deck. They can also be used to frame your composite deck, make an overhang, or secure steps. Starter clips by Nationwide Composite Decking are made of stainless steel, making them low-maintenance, corrosion-resistant, and visually appealing (not that they will be seen).
The installation of starter clips is extremely simple. First, ensure that each starter clip is aligned with the edge of the deck frame and the joist. Then, insert your screw into the deck clip's hole and secure it to the frame. Using six starter clips for every 16 feet of composite deck board, continue along the length of the deck. When all your clips are correctly aligned and secured, push your first deck board into the clips until it is completely secure. The remaining boards can then be installed using composite decking starter clips.
