In a continued effort to focus on “whole backyard” design solutions, Belgard is pleased to announce the addition of the MoistureShield® composite decking lines to the Oldcastle® Architectural family of backyard architectural products.
“Belgard is the number one brand of patio pavers and landscape walls in North America, but there are often design situations where installing hardscapes alone isn’t the best option,” says Josh Landis, Sr. Marketing Manager for the MoistureShield product line. “That’s why partnering with MoistureShield is such a good fit for Belgard. Deck porches can transition to paver patios, which can transition to a walkway, boardwalk, pool deck or dock. It exponentially increases the design capabilities and efficiencies of our contractors who can install both hardscapes and decking.”
In seeking out product partnerships, it was important that parent company Oldcastle® Architectural find a decking product that could match the quality and durability of the Belgard brand, which stands by its hardscape products with a lifetime transferable limited warranty. As one of the pioneers in the composite decking industry, MoistureShield also focuses on quality and offers its own limited lifetime warranty.
“MoistureShield won’t warp, cup or splinter like wood, and in 30 years, there have been zero product failures in the field,” says Landis. “No other decking brand can say that.”
MoistureShield water-resistant decking also features the ability to excel in harsh environmental conditions including extreme freeze/thaw cycles, high temperatures with full sun, arid climates, and installations with ground and water contact.
The MoistureShield lines were added to the Oldcastle portfolio in May of 2017. Since then, the Research & Development teams for both Belgard and MoistureShield have been rigorously working together and sharing insights on industry trends to develop innovations that will complement each other moving forward.
“No other hardscapes or decking brand is doing this,” says Landis. “Other companies only focus their R & D on what directly affects their products.”
The MoistureShield product line includes four decking styles, all of which feature 95 percent recycled content.
MoistureShield® Vision® is the latest innovation in composite decking, offers distinctive contemporary variegated wood looks, and is the only Wood Plastic Composite decking that can be installed on or in the ground, or even underwater. Vision offers an unparalleled lifetime fade and stain warranty and is available with CoolDeck® technology for barefoot comfort.
MoistureShield® Infuse® takes its name from its design, in that each deck board is infused with real wood to give it a realistic wood-grain finish. Infuse is also available with CoolDeck® technology for barefoot comfort.
MoistureShield® Vantage Collection® features a durable solid composite core and the workability of real wood — meaning contractors can rip it, rout it or bend it without splintering, warping or cupping. With wood grain on both sides, each board is reversible, allowing for easier installation.
MoistureShield® Refine® offers a durable core center and a composite cap to provide enhanced durability, along with true wood beauty and enriched natural coloring.
