Mystery Deck Board - Who Makes This?


Hey all,

Hope 2015 finds you well and busy...went on an estimate earlier in the week where I saw this decking. Not sure what it is but I'm trying to see if the company is still in business (or at least has funds set aside for warranty issues). Decking was put down 5-6 years ago, house was purchased 3 years ago and new owners have no contact w/ original owner (who built the house and deck).

Anyone recognize this decking?

Thanks,

Mac

I've seen it before. That straight grain embossment is unique. Looks like it could be Weatherbest.

It's not Timbertec. From the looks of the installation maybe the HO made it and installed it.

I'm going to vote for TT twin finish. They had a groove on one side to indicate the direction to install the planks.

We also put down uncapped composite as well.

Imo any deck board that fades is a problem. Let alone checks or falls apart.
