Cap Stock Decking

AERT’s MoistureShield Pro cap stock decking line adds an extra layer of protection and beauty to a composite core that encapsulates wood fibers in polyethylene plastic. Similar to other MoistureShield products, Pro deckboards can be installed on the ground, in the ground, or underwater and remain protected by a lifetime warranty. The durable cap enhances slip and scratch resistance. Available in three variegated colors. 

Prefab Railing Kit

Remodelers looking for a prefabricated, ship-same-day railing system now have a stainless steel option. AGS Stainless offers top- or side-mounted posts with two kits to accommodate up to 20 feet or 40 feet of level railing. ReadyRail packages can be combined for larger projects. The system also will accommodate a separately purchased wooden top rail, if needed. 

PVC Decking

The Genovations line features three-truss I-beam construction for strength, and the channel construction of 5/4-inch PVC deckboards from Genova Products makes them lighter and cooler in summer. Reflectants in the boards’ surface also help reduce heat. Tongue-and-groove design speeds installation, and the decking resists fading, staining, scratches, and mold. Available in seven colors and four lengths up to 24 feet. 

Under-Deck System

MP Global Products Zip-Up UnderDeck interlocking PVC components are engineered to fit together, creating a water-tight barrier. The “ceiling” surface is washable, paintable, and mold- and mildew-resistant. Wall trim at the perimeter and intermediate rails that run the length of the deck support the foot-wide panels, which unzip for quick access and cleaning. 

Outdoor Built-ins

The OutdoorStorage collection of waterproof deck and patio furniture from Trex offers more room for backyard essentials. The collection features seating and cabinetry with built-in ice drawers for food and drinks, along with convenient drawer boxes. Several sizes and storage options are available and can be ordered in all five Trex Transcend tropical decking shades, which are manufactured with high-density, low-maintenance resin.
