TimberTech rolls out lighting options for decks
Wilmington, Ohio-based TimberTech has added three new lighting offerings for decks.
TimberTech is now offering concealed Under-Rail lights. Easily installed inside the top rail between the balusters, they are practically unseen and bring soft and warm light that shines downward keeping the bulbs from falling directly into the line of sight, according to the company.
TimberTech also developed a light that is seamlessly installed in the decking planks, In-Deck lights. Approximately one-inch in diameter, this LED light is surrounded by an Architectural Bronze finish that provides a fashionable accent.
For fully customizable and mood-setting capability, TimberTech also introduced a dimmer that allows users to adjust the brightness of the lighting system to the desired level.
“After-market lighting products often fall short of consumer expectations and can require a lot of time to install,” said Toby Bostwick, senior product manager, TimberTech. “Our goal was to create the most appealing line of lighting that allows consumers and contractors to be as creative as possible while ensuring the products are as functional as they are stylish.”
While I am impressed by their
While I am impressed by their thoughtfulness in creating these products, I somehow worry about the replacement process, because LED lights don’t last for a lifetime, and it might be a pain to replace the lights when their time is up.
Versatex expands one-piece column cladding
Pittsburgh-based Versatex Trimboard introduced a new 4-in. x 6-in. version of its labor-saving, one-piece Versawrap PVC column cladding system.
The product minimizes field cutting, eliminates mitering and increases curb appeal by ensuring aligned corners on every column, according to the company. The 4-in. x 6-in. wrap complements the 4-in. x 4-in., 6-in. x 6-in. and 8-in. x 8-in. sizes.
“The contracting community has always been enthusiastic about products that speed up the process and add value to the finished structure,” said Rick Kapres, Versatex VP sales. “Knowing that, we’ve still been surprised at the rising demand for Versawrap.”
Versatex is a division of Wolfpac Technologies.

A mall with one purpose: The remodeler
Plans are underway near Toronto for a project called "Improve," described as a home renovation mall with diverse showrooms under one roof.
According to an article in the Globe and Mail, the project is the brainchild of a Ukrainian immigrant who found it difficult to make all the purchases involved in his own home renovation project.
The paper further describes the project as a collection of 401 businesses in 36 categories, and set to open in 2013 in Vaughan.
