Home improvements and even DIY for those who are capable, have never been simpler than with Eva-Last’s range of bamboo composite building materials.

Get all decked out this month with some DIY tips to help you make light work of your next home makeover project:

  1. Choose composite

Aside from saving our precious trees, there’s a reason the pros are choosing composites over natural materials – they are engineered to outperform traditional timber when it comes to installation, maintenance and upkeep. No more sanding, varnishing, painting or pesticides!

Composites are fast becoming the go-to material for the green building industry, offering affordable alternatives to traditional raw materials that are more effective and longer lasting.

Natural fibres such as bamboo, coconut, coir or jute have been used as a reinforcing material in building for centuries. Their natural density, elasticity and strength is enhanced by combining them with recycled plastic polymers such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyethylene (PE).

Eva-Last use bamboo fibres together with recycled plastic polymer compounds to produce advanced sustainable building products that require little-to-no maintenance and are not subject to degradation when exposed to the elements. These hybrid materials are ideal for decks, walkways, or stairways, and also cladding for exterior and interior walls.

Not only do Eva-Last composites look the part, they also provide superior performance characteristics including slip, scratch, stain, fade and moisture resistance. The inherent tensile strength and flexibility of the bamboo fibres ensures dimensional stability while the extruded polymer enhances the biological resistance to pests and susceptibility to UV damage.

Finally, the extrusion process allows for protective capping in realistic tones and textures that maintain their colour fastness over the lengthy lifetime of the product.

  • Do your homework

Read the installation guides and watch the installation videos, all available on Eva-Last’s website, to ensure you have a good understanding of what is required prior to starting your project.

Before you start construction, select the product most suitable for your project or that meets your designed outcome, design your layout, calculate your required materials, as well as fasteners and accessories, that may be required to ensure you have everything to complete the project.

Be sure that any sub-structure is level and secure and consult a professional for expert advice if required, especially around load serviceability.

  • Composite materials and systems make DIY simple

Eva-Last’s comprehensive collection of deck profiles, fascia boards, railing kits, cladding systems and composite fasteners work together to complete any project from A-Z with minimum fuss and maximum convenience.
