MoistureShield Double Play Rebate now in effect
Through June 30 of this year, MoistureShield is offering contractors double its usual $0.50 rebate in the MoistureShield Double Play Rebate.
The baseball-themed program allows deck builders to earn a $1.00 rebate per deck board, provided they’re part of the MoistureShield Valued Partner program. Additionally, all forms must be submitted by July 31.
"What’s more American than baseball, and spending time on the deck?" said Brent Gwatney, SVP sales and marketing for MoistureShield. "We know how important the kickoff of decking season is to our contractors and want to make sure we support them as much as possible."
Dealers can also apply for a dealer rebate through the MoistureShield website.

SouthernStone rolls out weather-resistant cabinets
SouthernStone Cabinets has its eye on what it considers "the trend [of]…bringing the comforts of the indoors to the outside." Its 2014 outdoot cabinet collection seeks to bring high-end finishes to outdoor kitchens, outfitted with Vycom’s Seaboard and materials from AZEK’s CPG Building Products.
"Seaboard is an HDPE material that lends itself well to our designs," said president Dave Baccari. "The material is low maintenance and easy to clean, standing up to the wear and tear of outdoor environments," he said.
The AZEK material is made of cellular PVC and stands up to weather extremes. "As outdoor living areas become larger and more elaborate, alternatives to wood and metal can provide long-term durability with beautifully crafted looks."
The cabinets come in nine different door styles in eight colors ranging from a contemporary slab design to a grooved panel, shaker-style door. Cabinet size and depth can be completely customized.
