ProTect Advantage Decking

Great looks, great value


Decking that goes above and beyond.

Whether original or new, WUI-approved boards, ProTect Advantage Decking is equal parts beauty and brawn.

ProTect Advantage Decking in Action

ProTect Advantage® Decking features stunning, multi-chromatic colors with subtle streaking and woodgrain patterns. Capped on three sides with a protective PermaTech® surface, these boards can withstand staining, fading, insects, and decay. They won’t splinter or crack, and never need staining, sanding, or re-sealing.

ProTect Advantage is also available in a fire-resistant version: ProTect Advantage FR. Like the original, ProTect Advantage FR features a durable PermaTech-capped surface and exceptional resistance to staining, fading, and decay.

The difference: ProTect Advantage FR boards have been tested and approved for use in Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) zones – and that's an important distinction if you live in a wildfire-prone region.

And of course, both ProTect Advantage and ProTect Advantage FR are backed by our industry-leading, 25-year limited warranty against staining and fading.
