SECTION 4: TRAINING

In this section you will go through 50 statements that you must read and understand. Once that is done you must check off each statement. Any statement that is left unchecked will not allow you to submit this form. The statements are grouped in 10 sub-sections.

1. Overview: please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

SpaceMaker is the perfect product for all decking installations because once they learn it is available, almost everybody wants the space under their deck to be dry. It doesn’t matter if the deck is only 1’ above ground or 10’ above ground.

For low-lying decks: Between 1’ and 2’ off the ground, SpaceMaker’s water diversion feature keeps the foundation and basement dry and prevents vegetation, mold and festering insects from growing under the deck.

For most standard decks: The area under the deck can be used as a new and important dry storage area enclosed and with lighting.

For all second floor decks: The area under the deck becomes a dry, outdoor living oasis extending the owner’s outdoor lifestyle, cooking, eating & relaxing outside even if it is raining.

2. General: please please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

SpaceMaker is manufactured by Admiral-SpaceMaker, Inc.

SpaceMaker is an easy to install outdoor flooring system with a Super Seal between the boards.

SpaceMaker is an outdoor floor and a water-diversion ceiling in one easy-to-install product.

You can easily make dry outdoor living areas with SpaceMaker.

You can easily make dry outdoor storage areas with SpaceMaker.

Many decks have hundreds of square feet of usable storage space underneath them which is wasted because typical decking and under ceiling techniques are too expensive for this use.

A major trend in deck construction is the inclusion of dry space to extend the owner's outdoor lifestyle. SpaceMaker is the only beautiful and solid core decking product that has a water diversion ceiling feature built-in. Others are aluminum or hollow ribbed profiles that look and feel inferior and have many other problems.

SpaceMaker costs much less than the combination of a comparable quality deck and a water diversion ceiling.

An installer can create new and exciting outdoor living and storage areas at relatively low prices using SpaceMaker to enhance the consumer’s outdoor lifestyle.

3. Product Details: please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

SpaceMaker is a tongue-and-groove board with a Super Seal on the tongue.

SpaceMaker's top surface is cap-coated for beauty, extreme durability and weather-ability including extreme resistance to fade, stains and scratches.

SpaceMaker's bottom surface is cap-coated to create a beautiful ceiling appearance and is pebble-grained for extreme scratch resistance during installation.

The SuperSeal is made from pure High Temperature Vulcanized Silicone and is resilient from over 400 degrees F to under -100 degrees F. The SuperSeal is designed to stay sealed and allow for expansion and contraction of the boards due to fluctuating seasonal temperatures.

A SpaceMaker board is a full 1” thick and 6.5” wide (including the tongue and the groove areas). The face width is 5.5”. When finally installed, with a ¼” gap, the center-to-center distance is 5 ¾.

SpaceMaker is the highest quality and most fully-featured decking material ever produced.

SpaceMaker is designed, engineered, formulated, patented, trademarked and 100% quality controlled in the USA. Testing is performed by Interek laboratories, the world's largest and most respected building materials laboratory.

4. Connecting the Board & Installing Screws: please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

When installing SpaceMaker use standard exterior composite decking screws with trim heads (Grip-Rite #8 X 1-5/8” Coarse Polymer-Plated Steel Square Composite Screws or equivalent).

Screws are most typically placed only in the screw line provided in the bottom portion of the groove side.

The screw is driven at approx 45 degree angle so the small screw head finally lies-flush with the board’s angled screw-line surface.

The next board to be installed is simply pushed horizontally so the SuperSeal on its tongue enters the groove side of the previous board. The boards are pushed tightly together using either a SpaceMaker Installation Tool, pry bar or a bow wrench. The Rain Groove width is set at ¼”. You can use the Gap Stick supplied with every board as a guide. This Rain Groove width can also be set by simply checking that the seal material is barely visible and consistent along the entire board length. The seal material is the same color as the board. It is easy to use the SuperSeal as a visual guide because having approx 1/16” max of SuperSeal’s edge visible in the Rain Groove is correct. So use either the Gap Stick or the SuperSeal as your guide to assure the boards are installed tightly together and to keep a consistent the space between the boards all along their length.

Screws are then installed into the screw line on the angled area of the groove side of the second board into the sub-structure's joists.

5. The Sub-Structure: please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

Screws are then installed into the screw line on the angled area of the groove side of the second board into the sub-structure's joists.

The ledger board must be attached to the primary structure according to code and must be flashed on its entire top and front surface. Everflashing is the recommended product for SpaceMaker. The top portion of the flashing should be positioned behind and underneath the vertical siding above the deck to assure that no water can ever get behind the ledger board. A generous amount of caulking should be used between theledger board flashing and the SpaceMaker board ends. Caulk underneath, behind the ends and on top of the SpaceMaker boards. If Everflashing is not used, the standard Z flashing of the ledger board is necessary and then caulking and top flashing is needed (4” of flashing behind the siding and 1.5” of flashing over the top surface of the SpaceMaker boards).

The ledger board may also have a gutter placed underneath it and all along it. A gutter must be pitched toward one end or split in the middle to pitch to both ends (and leaders must direct water away from the house). The gutter may never have water in it.

If it does, the water would only be small leaks, not much water at all. If a gutter is included, it should be positioned and flashed on the ledger board so it will catch any water that may migrate from the deck surface behind the edges of the deck boards and around and down the ledger board’s flashing (this could happen if the caulking in this area is deficient).

In some more “finished” SpaceMaker projects, the room below a SpaceMaker ceiling might be enclosed with walls that have screened windows and doors. So it may be desired to not include a gutter at the ledger board. In this case, the flashing and caulking of the ledger board should be handled with extra care.

If the substructure has its joists according to code oriented parallel to the house (commonly known as Porch Construction and also oven found in free standing decks) then SpaceMaker boards can be oriented either at 45 degrees as before, or they can also be positioned perpendicular to the primary structure.

The foundational posts and anchors and the rest of the substructure are all to be built according to code.

6. SpaceMaker Accessories: please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

The Edge Strip is used around the outside perimeter of the SpaceMaker surface to provide a finished appearance to the deck-box and to allow diverted water to easily flow off the surface.

When using a double perimeter joist around the outside of the deck with the railing posts bolted between the perimeter joists, leave a gap between the end of the SpaceMaker board and the ripped perimeter Square Edge Board so water can drain. Gap should be at least 3/16”, wider for cold installation. Allowance should be made for expansion and contraction with temperature; SpaceMaker boards may change 1/8” per each 8 feet of length. Hot installation = Small Gap, minimum 3/16”. Cold installation = wider gap, up to 3/4” for 24’ long boards.

The Square Edge Board is used for all areas where matching surfaces are desired but where water diversion is not necessary such as railing caps, stairs risers, flower pots, benches, tables and many other trim related uses.

A Starter Board is made any width you want by cutting-off the tongue end of the board. Then fasten the Starter board with screws in the screw ledge as normal and face screwing the opposite end with color matched screws or plugs.

7. Railing: please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

Railing can be top mounted with appropriate steel surface mounts. Follow post mount installation instructions for proper code compliant installation. Apply sufficient acrylic caulking into any penetrating holes to seal this connection. Diverted water flows underneath these surface mounted railing posts. This is a preferred method and works well with the Edge Strip perimeter treatment.

Railing posts can be attached outboard of the deck surface by bolting the railing posts to the deck box per code. A spacer beam or extra fascia can be used to space keep the railing posts away from the Edge Strip or Trim Board that frames the deck's perimeter. This railing approach provides the maximum usable deck surface area, does not breach the SpaceMaker surface and therefore is also a preferred railing construction that works well with the Edge Strip.

The double perimeter joist approach that traps the railing posts works well with a Square Edge trim. This approach also allows a hidden gutter between the perimeter joists. Best practice is to have the railing posts cut thru the center area of the SpaceMaker board to keep the rain grooves open for drainage. Railing connections that breach the SpaceMaker water diversion surface can be sealed with an acrylic based caulking sealant, DO NOT USE SILICONE. Also you can add self adhering window or deck flashing tape in addition to the acrylic caulk.

(NOTE: If a water diversion channel must be blocked by a rail post, and the surface is pitched at 1/8” per foot, that blocked channel will have water collect in only 3 feet of it’s length… then all additional water will flow over the top surfaces and drain normally to the edges with the rest of water being shed by SpaceMaker. All water on the top surface will then dry naturally.

8. Sleeper Systems:please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

The use of SpaceMaker on sleeper systems voids the warranty because these installations typically provide very limited ventilation. The lack of ventilation combined with SpaceMaker’s Super Seal feature will trap heat under the deck surface.

Also, when a sleeper system is placed on a rooftop, there is occasionally very limited ability to access all of the areas where flashing would be necessary.

9. Repair: please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

To replace a board, rip the damaged board down the middle and remove the tongue section easily. Then use a saw between the remaining SpaceMaker section and the joists to cut-away the screws.

To replace a board, rip the damaged board down the middle and remove the tongue section easily. Then use a saw the remaining SpaceMaker section and the joists to cut-away the screws. Take the new replacement board and cut-away the screw ledge of the Tongue & Groove side.

Install the tongue side of the replacement board first. Then push in and down to set the other side into place. Screw the replacement board into place either from the underside or with common color matched composite deck screws from the top.

10. Maintenance: please check the box when you've read and understand the following statements.

Periodically use a hose to flush-out debris from the water diversion channels. Do not use a pressure washer. Clean only with water and occasionally use a non-abrasive dish detergent. Do not put mats of any kind on the surface. Prevent greases, lotions, sprays and all other chemicals from contacting the surface.
