Inside Fiberon: ClearVisionSystem

Fiberon Decking Specialist Paul Penziol shares his experience with two homeowners from Oregon who were in the process of building not only their dream deck, but also their dream home.

It all started with a phone call from a homeowner wanting more information about Fiberon Horizon Ipe decking. The "man of the house" was determined to do this project himself with the help from his brother who is a contractor. His wife loved the look of Horizon Ipe composite decking, as it gave them lasting beauty with low maintenance, with a natural wood look--after all, they live in Oregon. They invited me to their home and we sat out on the deck and as I recall, this is how the story started. They saved up to buy this hill top piece of property so they could build their lifelong dream home on it.

Next came the dream deck. The view was spectacular as it went on for miles and deserved an outdoor living space to enjoy it from. The treetops and valleys below where stunning and the longer I sat, the more beauty I took in. I remember talking about decking characteristics and installation, when the "true decision maker" spoke up about the railing. I believe her comment went something like, "There was only one choice of railing: Fiberon’s ClearVisionSystem."

I had to agree with her that no other railing would work in this situation. She went on to explain that their next project would be a playground in front of the house and deck, and a grass yard below. She wanted to be able to see through the railing and keep an eye on their young kids. The invisible Plexiglas provides protection from wind and safety for the children, as it wouldn’t distort that view they saved so hard for. The husband did find it a somewhat challenging project, but loved the fact that he was able to cut the clear panels on site. The hidden fastening system was easy to install and brought out even more aesthetic beauty. Fiberon’s ClearVisionSystem compliments the Fiberon Horizon Ipe decking in the same way the home and property reflected the beautiful people that lived there. It was a pleasure to meet these folks. Thanks for inviting me to your home.
