Installation for all of them is about the same the best thing is to make a template and have them pre-make the panels electronically welded together a plastic is garbage the color is it is it is terrible and it’s not realistic looking I use Flexiteek it has some actual wood in it and it’s a better product it’s more UV resistant and it looks more natural I thought a lot of people with my flight with FlexiteekI'm trying to decide if DIY installation is worth the time and effort. I've priced PlasTeak at about $8K for the custom-made mats, or $5K for the DIY rolls of material that you join together similar to hardwood flooring (but more complicated). If anyone has actually tried this, I'm wondering if it's practical for a 50 foot sailboat with kingplanks an all sorts of other interesting patterns to make.
It seems like all the posts are about which brand to buy but none about actual installation.
I was originally thinking about replacing the old teak with Kiwigrip but am concerned about the aesthetics, not to mention resale value.
