MoistureShield, a division of Oldcastle APG and a manufacturer of composite decking and railing, has partnered with distributor Cardinal Building Products.

Headquartered in Leola, Pa., Cardinal will carry the full line of MoistureShield state-of-the-art composite products designed to replace traditional decking materials.

A family business since 1992, Cardinal Building Products has close to 1 million square feet of decking at its Leola facility.  Through the Leola branch location, Cardinal Building Products will supply MoistureShield to lumberyards throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region.

“We have extensive experience in decking and recognize how nicely MoistureShield’s innovative product lines fit into our product selection,” said Rick Hess, general manager of Cardinal Building Products. “MoistureShield demonstrates the kind of technology our customers are looking for to best meet their customer’s needs and stand out in the decking marketplace.”

The MoistureShield product line features Vision capped composite decking with a modern, variegated appearance and the exclusive DiamondDefense capped surface. MoistureShield also features its CoolDeck technology in select products, which reduces deck board surface temperatures by up to 35%.

Other products include Infuse decking, a realistic wood-grain finish and ability to withstand total submersion in water; and Vantage, an uncapped composite with the workability of wood. All MoistureShield decking features the “Solid Core Difference” for advanced strength and moisture resistance.

“We are excited to partner with Cardinal Building Products to help grow our deck offerings in the Mid-Atlantic,” said Todd Braun, vice president of sales for MoistureShield, a division of Oldcastle APG. “Cardinal is strategically positioned to help us continue to expand our offerings in this region, and they have the decking knowledge to help grow the brand.”

MoistureShield composite decking and railing is manufactured from 95% recycled content and can be installed directly on the ground, in the ground or under water.

Oldcastle APG is part of CRH’s Building Products division. CRH operates locations in 32 countries.
