What are the advantages of Eva-tech versus traditional timber?
Eva-tech is comprised exclusively of recycled plastic and wood fibres and is produced using eco-friendly manufacturing processes from start to finish. Not only is Eva-tech mould and moisture resistant, it will not rot, splinter, warp or crack. Even with time and harsh weather conditions, Eva-tech’s UV resistance means colour-fade is minimal.
Is Eva-tech more expensive than wood?
You will however save money in the long run as there is no need for expensive stains, sealants, varnish, oils, sanding and labour. Over the lifetime of the warranty, Eva-tech offers amazing value that is far greater and cheaper when compared to wood.
How does the warranty work?
Eva-Last® encourages you to register your warranty online immediately upon purchase of all Eva-tech products, and to ensure that all Eva-tech installations adhere to the Eva-tech installation guide. Please refer to the installation guide appropriate to the product you have chosen.

Why is Eva-tech not a structural material?
However other than the Eva-tech composite joist, for use on self supporting surfaces, Eva-tech products are not designed nor covered by the warranty for structural use. No composite material in the global market is approved to be used as structural material. It is best used with pressure treated lumber, steel or aluminium as the framework.
