MoistureShield launches new Elevate

November 29, 2019 - United States Of America

MoistureShield has introduced new Elevate, which provides advanced protection, beauty and durability within an entry-level budget, making capped wood composite decking affordable for contractors and homeowners. Elevate capped wood composite decking features a strong, protective cap which shields each board from impact, corrosion and harsh weather.

Elevate is available in two popular colours. Lake Fog is a soft gray shade, while Canoe is a forest brown - both complementing any home’s architectural style.

“The Elevate line of decking allows contractors and their customers to affordably upgrade to capped composite wood decking and enjoy all of its benefits,” said Richard Lankester, president of MoistureShield, a division of Oldcastle APG. “Elevate delivers the beauty and durability of capped decking without breaking the bank.”

It is estimated that Elevate decking can help homeowners upgrade to the benefits of composites – such as no splinters, increased aesthetics and low upkeep – for only 15 per cent more than a wood deck.

Like all MoistureShield deck products, Elevate also features the Solid Core Difference, a proprietary manufacturing process offering protection against moisture absorption, warping, rotting, and damage from insects right at the core of each board. This technology has resulted in zero structural field failures whether the boards are in the ground, on the ground or even underwater.

Elevate 5/4 deck boards are available in 12 and 16- foot lengths in grooved profiles (for hidden fasteners) and 20-foot lengths with a solid edge for deck stairs and picture framing, as well as fascia boards in 12-foot lengths.

Elevate will be available in select markets for the initial launch, with plans for a broader roll-out in 2020. MoistureShield wood composite decking is manufactured from 95 per cent recycled content diverting tens of millions of pounds of plastic and wood scrap from landfills annually.
