What is meant by a ‘staggered joint’?

A staggered joint refers to a method of joining two boards end-to-end in a way that creates a more visually appealing and structurally sound deck surface.

Instead of having all the seams between boards lined up in a straight line, a staggered joint involves offsetting the seams so that they are not directly aligned. This creates a more natural and random appearance that resembles the look of a traditional wood deck.

Staggering the joints also helps to distribute the weight and stress on the deck more evenly, which can help to prevent warping and other forms of damage over time.
