DECK BOARD CHALLENGE
A better manufacturing process makes for better deck boards. That’s the TAMKO® philosophy—and why we believe in the compression molding process.
As the only compression molded composite decking, EverGrain® products create beauty unlike extruded composite deck boards. Compare EverGrain’s beauty side-by-side vs. the appearance of the leading competitor and see the difference it makes.
What is compression molding?
To get a closer look at the difference compression molding
makes in creating more random natural beauty, you actually have to take a step back — and view an entire deck board.
Notice how the leading competitor’s pattern repeats every 37-3/8 inches— that’s the same grain pattern repeated five times on a single 16-foot board. But EverGrain® creates a pattern that never repeats across the entire board for a more natural wood look.
See the single board comparison
An authentic wood grain look is one of the most important details that distinguishes the beauty of your composite deck. And once again, different manufacturing processes create very different results.
The competitor’s extruded board features an embossed repeating pattern on the surface of the board. EverGrain’s compression molded process creates a grain with dramatic and lasting beauty.
When you compare limited warranties, you find that EverGrain® offers greater coverage in two critical areas:
A significant portion of the costs to replace a deck are labor costs. And unlike the leading competitor, EverGrain® covers both materials and labor for the first 5 years of the Limited Warranty.
Commercial application coverage
Why should commercial applications get any less coverage? EverGrain® offers a 20-year commercial Limited Warranty, while the leading competitor’s coverage is reduced to 10 years.
The more you learn about compression molding and the difference it makes, the clearer your choice becomes. For a random natural look, a deep and dramatic wood grain, and a Limited Warranty that covers both materials and labor, EverGrain® is the natural choice. **
