CertainTeed expands colors for EverNew decking

BY HBSDealer Staff

Valley Forge, Pa.-based CertainTeed added two new shades to its EverNew PT Decking collection: Castle Gray and Tudor Brown. 

The new colors join an existing palette of Bronze, Slate, Ipe Tropics and Rosewood Tropics. 

“EverNew PT Decking is an ultra-low maintenance decking product that is durable and long-lasting,” said Patti Pellock, senior marketing manager for CertainTeed’s Fence, Railing and Deck division. “Available in natural looking, wood grain embossed patterns, as well as tropical colors with exotic, hardwood tones, it is a valuable component of dynamic outdoor living spaces.”

EverNew PT composite decking consists of a high-density polyethylene core and features patent-pending PermaTech surface technology from Fiberon that encapsulates the core and provides for unparalleled stain, fade and scratch resistance. The decking is designed for strength, durability and rigidity and is resistant to termites, splinters and decay. It’s backed by a 20-year performance warranty and a 20-year stain and fade warranty. 

EverNew PT Decking is a low-maintenance product; occasional washing with a standard garden hose will remove dirt and grime, and leave decking looking like new.

I would give it a try simply
I would give it a try simply because they offer a 20 years warranty and because the decks would be termites resistant. I had my old decking ruined by these insects and probably they would have ruined my home too if it weren't for terminixpestcontroloffers.com and I don't want to face such destruction again.
