Blog27Fiberon chairs? Aren’t we a decking company?

When it comes to innovation, and making the very most out of your outdoor living space, there’s no limit to imagination.

If you’re a reader of Southern Living magazine, you’ll soon see Fiberon’s composite decking featured…

But not in deck form! Actually, Southern Living used our eco-friendly, durable, and elegant composite materials to construct a set of chairs. Much like our decking products, these chairs are built to last.

On display at the Palmetto Bluff Idea House in South Carolina, this “Fiberon furniture” joins a gorgeous array of beautifully designed accents, breathtaking architecture, and sheer inspiration.

We can’t say it any better than Lindsey Bierman, Editor of Southern Living magazine. She describes the area:

Blog 27-2“Palmetto exemplifies Lowcountry living in the Carolinas. The preserved surroundings set the standard in conscientious development. It is the perfect setting to reveal our 2014 Idea House this summer. The marriage of the clean lines of Pursley Dixon Architecture and the sophisticated interior design by Suzanne Kasler will offer a fresh look that we can’t wait to reveal here at Southern Living.”

We especially love the IDEAs featured in this house, and we are more than honored to be listed as a key contributor.

When it comes to your own outdoor living space, it’s all about your personality. As we watch our designers and contractors go to work, we love to see brilliant ideas flourish. When the time comes to add “the most important room” to a home, it only works if the owner feels that their outdoor living space is 100% their own.

Do you have a vision for your outdoor living space? How do you want to spend the most precious hours of the day with friends and family?

Whatever picture you have in your mind, we exist to turn that projection into reality. Really, the possibilities are endless. If you’ve got an imagination, you can have a beautiful deck that fits your exact vision.

These Fiberon chairs are living proof of the possibilities that composite materials bring to the world. As wooden chairs fade, break, and splinter, a composite chair will last for decades.

It’s difficult to pinpoint just one thing to love about outdoor living spaces.

That’s why Fiberon uses a design your dream deck tool that allows you to bring the vision you have to life. Innovative, creative, and wholly yours—that’s exactly what the professional builders do at Lenzi Construction & Remodeling.

We’re shining the FiberPRO Spotlight on the amazing Lenzi Construction & Remodeling, because the company embodies the idea of custom decking.

What does custom decking mean exactly? If you take a look at the work done by this FiberPRO, you’ll see that the decks they build come from the homeowner’s vision.

Blog 25But that’s not the only reason that we love what Lenzi Construction & Remodeling has to offer. The FiberPRO also believes in the lasting benefits of composite decking.

We couldn’t agree more with this statement on their website: We’re a proud Fiberon deck builder, installer, and deck designer. We’ve found Fiberon decks stand up to the harsh weather extremes we experience in New Hampshire and throughout New England.

 

We love the fact that one of our favorite FiberPROs believes that an outdoor living space should not only be unique and beautiful, but also sustainable as the years pass by.

How much would you enjoy something if you knew that in a couple of years, you’d have to make an expensive upgrade?

When you mix our composite decking products with the level of craftsmanship Lenzi Construction offers, you’ll never have to worry about replacement or laborious painting or staining every year or two.

How safe is a wood deck versus a composite deck?

safety

There are so many things to consider when building a deck, and the safety of your family is a major factor.

We, at Fiberon, conduct surveys of our deck owners, and when asked why they choose a composite deck, many have said “because it is splinter-free.”

If you have pets or children, splinters are an issue. Wood deck owners often cite that splinters, rotting, warping, or cracking as key reasons for concern.

When you make an investment in a deck, you are going to use it as an extension of your home. The last thing you should be thinking about is safety issues.

Not only is our composite decking and railing toxin-free, it is splinter-free and rot-resistant.

View some of our beautiful, composite decks and railing and design your own perfect deck to meet the needs of your family.

Composite Decking: Does It Really Stack Up?

Grilling season is here. Everyone is flocking outdoors! You step out onto your deck, and notice the cracking, splintering, and warping. You think to yourself, “I need a new deck!” But what kind of deck building materials are you going to use for your new outdoor oasis? Is there an alternative building material that will hold up and look new longer than your current deck has?

Composite Decking - Does It Really Stack Up?Decks have become an extension of the home as an outdoor playroom, kitchen, sanctuary, and entertainment hub. Decks enhance the integrity of a home and offer a place for families and friends to gather. So, whether you are building a deck for the first time or replacing the one you have, it is important to know your options.

In the past, homeowners had very few choices in material when building a deck. Now, with an array of choices, more homeowners and builders are trending toward alternative decking materials.

In a May 2014 survey, 57% of deck builders said they used alternative composite decking materials (composites, PVC, and capped composite) over traditional wood. Read the rest of this entry »
