azek deck colors 2016We are offering cortex hidden screw plug system with our azek decks. these plugs become invisible, but are far superior to clip systems!. clip cortex hidden screw systemsystems are non repairable and hold too large a gap. face screwing is the only uncompromised method of decking fastening, and these screw plugs work extremely well.      

Azek capped polymer decking now offering 30 year limited warranty fade and stain, tougher surface for better scratch resistance.
we highly recommend Azek for your custom high end composite deck.

This years unprecedented snow fall in CT has seen many deck collapses, sometimes just the natural snowfall was enough, and other times the additional snow from roof shoveling or raking was overwhelming on older and tired decks. Don't despair insurance can help out and now is a good time to upgrade to a better material, shape and design.

recalled veranda deckingVeranda recall: Louisiana-Pacific recalled 48 million feet of veranda and weatherBest composite decking, for prematurely deteriorating and breaking, posing a serious risk to anyone on a deck of recalled materials. We have always been wary of the low end composites and this is a great indication of why. Imagine spending thousands on a new composite deck to have it fall apart before your eyes in a matter of a few years.

Ipe (ironwood) Decking: Deck specialists Inc. pioneered Ipe decks several years ago and we are proud of all the fantastic Ipe decks we have completed. Ipe continues to be the premier Outdoor deck material. Ipe lumber price continues to climb but we are doing our best to maintain both supply and reasonable costs. At this time Ipe is still the best high end material buy.

Composite Decking: composite decking have been around for quite  a few years now, and many improvements have been realized, as third and forth generations of popular products reach market, overall quality of the boards it much higher then the original products firsts released and newer products coming to the market also share these innovations. Appearance: both in surface graining, color  and overall consistency is much better. Strength and overall stiffness is much improved (still, joists should be closer together then normal 12" rather then 16" but less sagging is realized.) permanent staining  and heat transfer are still issues but strides have been made.  We work with several of the better composite materials.

#1 Pressure Treated Framing: We are proud to use only #1 grade hand selectedvisit our photo gallery pressure treated framing. The industry standard for framing is #2 SYP PT framing, in fact all the joists and beam span charts are generated using #2 lumber, we proudly use all #1 giving you a stronger more consistent deck project.

Vinyl Lumber: We are entering our 9th season with our current high end vinyl lumber supplier. We could not be happier with the quality and looks of this material, we feel it the finest in the field and we purchase the material by the truck load exclusively for our railings.

Procell news: Procell technology has been purchased by Azek, also cellular PVC boards are being offered from Cellek , Trex and Sensibuilt . Azek is one of the high end composites we recommend. 

Sensibuilt has merged with Fiberon composites. Should secure Sensibuilt's place in market.

CPI plastic group makers of Eon decking has filled for bankruptcy. Eon has been plagued with problems with their product, largely attributed to heat expansion and contraction, many Eon deck owners complained of creaking, squeaking with deck board movement, and even cracking if boards are fastens too securely.

Certainteed has discontinued their Boardwalk composite decking line, Dow has dropped Symmatrix, Alocoa halted Oasis, Is this going to be a trend? are the multitude if composite deck companies going to drop their lines with increasing competition? Other like Fiberon and Weatherbest have merged in hopes of capturing a better share of the market.

New PT formulas: Once again the PT market has seen sweeping changes in the preservative formulas, fazing out are the highly corrosive ACQ formulas to be replaced by  friendlier  micronized formulas with their smaller copper particles that require no solvent to dissolve into water based treatment solution
