ROUNDUP It won’t be long before the weather breaks, and everyone is back to building outdoors. The time to plan your new deck is at hand, and here’s a roundup of new products to con- sider for the project.
DECKORATORS VOYAGE COMPOSITE DECKING Deckorators has expanded its line of wood-alternative decking with the launch of Voyage (pictured). This new line of composite decking features patented Eovations technolo- gy. Like other members of the Deckorators Eovations deck- ing family, Voyage delivers the industry’s best strength-to- weight ratio, absorbs virtually no moisture, and allows virtu- ally no thermal expansion or contraction. Voyage adds to these benefits unique textured embossing for superior trac- tion on the deck surface, along with the bold look of vertical grain variegation. The textured embossing offers homeown- ers the enhanced safety of superior traction underfoot in both dry and wet conditions. Deckorators Voyage decking provides 34 percent or greater surface traction than other leading brands of composite decking. Voyage is also 35 per- cent lighter than most wood-plastic composite decking and similar in weight to PVC for easier handling on the job site, but it’s twice as strong as PVC decking in terms of stiffness-to-weight ratio for superior durability.
