What is a FiberPRO?

September 19th, 2014
by

When you decide to build a deck, there are a lot of questions that can run through your mind.

Why kind of deck should I build? What materials should I use? Who is going to build my deck? How do I find a builder that I can trust?

You are, after all, creating the outdoor living space of your dreams. And you are placing your trust in the hands of your builder.

Is composite decking as beautiful as wood decking?

September 14th, 2014

Beautiful FiberonOf course, as you are building your dream outdoor oasis, you want your deck to be both functional and beautiful.

A deck is, after all, an extension of your home. There is no question that traditional wood decking is stunning when it is well maintained.

Tropical and exotic woods are striking, and the rich color of oiled hardwood, or the weathered pale grey, can complement any home and backyard.

Composite decking is also very beautiful, but comes without the hassle of wood maintenance. Composite decking comes in many colors and styles. Some composite materials mimic wood grain and others are monochromatic or multi-chromatic. Read the rest of this entry »

What is the cost for wood and composite decking?

September 7th, 2014
by

Cost of CompositesIn 2013, Consumer Reports ran several articles and reviews comparing wood decking to alternative decking materials.

They reported that pressure-treated pine is very popular and very inexpensive. However, the pressure treated wood changes quickly and has shortest deck life expectancy. The initial cost for pressure treated wood is relatively low, and is very attractive to consumers. But the long-term costs for repairs, upkeep, and replacement tend to be very high.

Exotic hardwoods are very expensive, and their deck life span is much longer; however, exotic rich colored hardwoods require a great deal of work to not turn a gray and are often very difficult to maintain. Read the rest of this entry »

Blog 23Many Fiberon Decking families include kids. For them, it’s a crucial time now that the school bells have started ringing. Can you smell the sharpened pencils?

When it comes to your kids’ education, your Fiberon deck is the perfect place for relaxed study time. While your deck is an “anti-work” zone, your favorite student will enjoy an outdoor education.

Which decking materials are eco-friendly?

September 3rd, 2014
by

EcoFriendlyToday, people are making the decision to make their homes and their lifestyles more eco-friendly.

Many building material manufacturers are being more “green” and homeowners get the added benefit of knowing they are using materials made of recycled plastics and wood that don’t require the chemicals to keep it safe and looking great.

For decking material to be “eco-friendly,” it must be produced in such a way that it does not have a negative impact on the environment.

Pressure-treated wood has been the most common decking material used in the past, but the process of making the wood “pressure- treated” is  still a safety concern even with newer technologies such as micronized copper technology.

Fiberon Chairs at Southern Living’s Palmetto Bluff Idea House

September 1st, 2014

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.
