What is Eva-Last composite?
Eva-Last composite is a range of eco-friendly, polymer and cellular composite building products comprised of decking, cladding and screening product lines, as well as luxury stone plastic composite indoor flooring. Eva-Last composite is designed for simple installation and a low-maintenance lifestyle. It offers an alternative to timber and is gentle on the Earth, long-lasting, and just plain beautiful.
What are the advantages of Eva-Last composite compared to traditional timber?
Eva-Last composite does the job of traditional timber building products, only it does it better. It is significantly lower maintenance than timber decking, and requires no staining, sanding, or sealing. It’s also equipped with built-in features that make it safer and longer lasting, with leading slip, stain, splinter, and crack resistance; colour protection; mould, mildew, and moisture resistance; and anti-microbial properties.
Eva-Last composite is also significantly more eco-friendly than wood decking. It’s made of recycled and renewable materials, requires no trees to be felled, manufactured with solar power, and requires no harmful chemicals for treatment.
Eva-Last composite lasts longer, performs better, and is safer, cleaner, and more sustainable than wood. And its expansive range of colours and textures means you can still enjoy the look of timber decking without the drawbacks.

INSTALLATION, WARRANTY, & MAINTENANCE
How does the warranty work?
Please visit our warranty page to read and download all warranties, or to file a warranty claim.
All Eva-Last warranties are dependent on proper installation and usage. Please consult the appropriate installation and care guidelines before using any Eva-Last product. We are happy to assist you with any questions you may have regarding warranties, installation, or product usage.
Can Eva-Last products be sanded?
Does Eva-Last composite expand and contract?
All composite, including Eva-Last composite, expands and contracts. Allow for this expansion and contraction before installing any Eva-Last composite in order to adhere to warranty parameters. Each Eva-Last product line has its own installation guide which gives the exact rate of expansion of the material in question, and provides an optimal gap size to leave between boards for a long-lasting deck.
Does Eva-Last composite get hot?
I-Series is a ventilated profile which helps moderate and cool the surface temperature. However, all Eva-Last composite products may become hot in direct sunlight. Lighter colours are less prone than darker ones to absorbing heat, and may be a consideration if you are choosing to enjoy Eva-Last composite in areas with extended amounts of direct sunlight.
Does Eva-Last composite require cleaning?
Does Eva-Last composite require special tools for installation?
Regular saws, drills, and tools used for installing timber decking can be used to cut and fix Eva-Last composite; no special machinery is needed. Please refer to the installation guide of the specific Eva-Last composite product you are using before beginning your project for a complete list of applicable and necessary tools.
What is the lifetime value of Eva-Last composite?
Eva-Last composite is a long-term investment. Over time it proves its value and works out to be more cost-effective than wood decking, while also providing value in terms of lifestyle, health, and sustainability.
Eva-Last composite pays for itself as it installs faster than wood decking, does not require additional treatments or specialised cleaning products, lasts longer, and is stain, fade, rot, warp, crack, splinter, and moisture resistant, meaning you can avoid the costs of premature replacement. Its industry-leading warranty stands testament to the long-term durability of Eva-Last composite, and its long-term savings.
Additionally, Eva-Last composite adds value to your lifestyle by freeing up your spare time to enjoy life, instead of maintaining your decking. It also serves as a stake in your commitment to the future; a sustainable product that can do the job of wood better than wood, itself.
Why is Eva-Last composite not a structural material?
Eva-Last composite is specially engineered to function as decking and cladding rather than structural material. That’s because we’re focused on doing things thoroughly, and so we’ve dedicated ourselves to continuing to improve composite for its specific purpose, rather than for substructure. We do, however, design our composite decking to work with the structural material of your choice. We offer fasteners which make installation more efficient and long-lasting for both wood and metal substructures.
What colours are available for Eva-Last composite?
Does Eva-Last composite decking require gaps to let water and organic matter through?
Yes, all Eva-Last decks will have gaps between deck boards. The decking clips used to install grooved boards will act as spacers, automatically creating a standard 5 mm gap between your profiles. For non-grooved (or square edge) boards, use spacers to create a consistent 5 mm gap. This allows for dirt and debris to fall between the deck boards and prevents any build-up of debris that could cause issues down the line.
