The Star of the Show:
Ever Grain Composite Decking

Designing Spaces Correspondent Jodi Darren meets Alex Hines with Tamko Building Products to install a deck for homeowner Matt’s tiki hut. Matt selected Tamko EverGrain Envision for his deck material instead of traditional wood. EverGrain is the only deck board utilizing compression manufacturing technology, taking deck performance to a whole new level. It is low maintenance, resistant to weathers and stains. Holding the deck together is the EG1.2.3 Hidden Fastener, so there are no screw heads or nails visible to cause possible snags. The deck is made just in time for Matt’s party!

Dress Up Your Deck

Dress Up Your DeckWith Summer just around the corner, adults and kids alike are looking forward to enjoying the great outdoors. Do you have a place to entertain friends and family, grill up some bar-b-que or sit back and relax and catch a few quiet moments?

A deck off your home is a great place for a gathering spot or a solo getaway – a perfect bridge between indoor and out – where you can enjoy a natural setting while having the convenience of being close enough to your home to grab whatever you need.

If you have a deck but the wood is faded, cracked or stained from years of food and drink spills, or if you are considering creating an exterior extension of your home’s square footage, TAMKO® Building Products makes EverGrain® Envision™ Bonded Composite Decking™ that takes durable decking options to a new level.

If you like the look of wood but not the upkeep, EverGrain® Envision™ offers:

• Color highlights in deck panels emulate natural color variations of real wood – no uniform boring color!
• Deep grain wood-like textures and more random patterns for a natural wood look – no plastic-y look!

• Outstanding strength and consistency (only bonded composite deck board using compression manufacturing technology, also has low water absorption, less swelling)

• Resists certain common food and beverage stains, including mustard, ketchup, barbeque sauce, canola oil, fruit punch, wines and coffee

• Easy to clean /Low maintenance / Limited warranty

• 4 true multi-shade color options to enhance any home décor with authentic wood beauty

EverGrain® Envision™ Bonded Composite Decking™ cuts and works like real wood so no special tools are required. There are also special fastener options so after installation, you won’t hurt your feet on screws or nails sticking out!
