DEK-KING® – 5 Year Material Warranty
We strongly believe in the quality and performance of our Dek-King range and offer a 5 year material guarantee on our profiles.
Whilst Dek-King synthetic decking greatly reduces the level of maintenance required in comparison to teak deck, it does not eliminate the need to maintain it entirely once installed. As with all flooring products, any spillages should be attended to as soon as possible. We are unable to offer our 5 year warranty on a deck where lack of care or maintenance is apparent, or damage caused to the material through contact with chemicals or solvents.
DEK-KING is not a porous material and it resists staining better than natural wood or cork decking.
Our new proprietary formula is also easier to clean than other synthetic teak products. Petroleum products, red wine and fish blood simply was off with common detergents. One of the major claims made for these synthetic teak decks is stain resistance. We went out of our way to stain our pvc teak material , using gasoline (petrol), dirty oil, antifreeze, red wine, coffee, and whiskey. We allowed each mess to remain on the surface 24 hours, judged how bad it looked and then tried to remove it by scrubbing with a mild detergent and a soft brush. Our teak looked like new and there were no signs of staining.
Synthetic Decking Maintenance
A simple wash using soap and water should be sufficient to remove everyday dirt, grime and general spillages. Unlike teak decks, jet washers can be used upon Dek-King to give a thorough clean over larger areas.
Liquids such as fish blood, oil or red wine should be cleaned as soon as possible. Allowing the liquid to dry could result in a stain which is more difficult to remove. Should any surface staining occur we recommend using a piece of 40 grit sandpaper rubbed “along the grain”. This will remove most marks and return the area to it’s original colour. This may be lighter than the surrounding area but should blend over a short period of time. Power sanders are not recommended as they can easily create an uneven surface or damage to the profiles and joins.
Our sales team will be happy to answer any questions that you may have with regard the upkeep of your deck.
By keeping your Dek-King in a clean and maintained state you will not only keep your deck looking good but will also ensure that it lasts for years to come.
Chemicals or Solvents
Damage caused by chemicals or solvents such as bleach or acetone will void our warranty. Any spills of
such liquids should be rinsed with water as soon as possible to prevent staining. Failure to clear such spillages may result in damage which could ruin the material.
Dek-King is a non-slip product and the application of any liquid surface covering may result in a loss of these properties. The use of these liquids (ie paint, varnish, oil, sealant) will void the warranty upon the product.
As with all boat decks, the use of appropriate footwear will reduce the likelihood of marking or damage caused to your deck.

Dek-King is designed to be fitted to an even and level surface. It should not be used to cover any deficiencies present upon a surface. The Material Warranty on our Dek-King profiles covers defects created during manufacture or in the
performance of the base compound.
