Envision deck boards consist of more than 80 percent recycled materials

LAMAR, MISSOURI – April 22, 2019 The Envision® brand already provides the most uniquely beautiful decking in the industry, but now, homeowners can feel even better about their product of choice as the brand announces that it incorporated 215.8 million pounds of recycled materials into its products between 2013 and 2018.

These newly announced sustainability numbers represent material that may otherwise have ended up in a landfill, including more than 144 million pounds of recycled sawdust, and more than 71 million pounds of recycled plastics between 2013 and 2018. The total weight of these materials is equivalent to more than 700 Blue Whales, the heaviest animal on Earth. As a result, Envision® deck boards consist of more than 80 percent recycled content, something consumers can feel good about using to beautify their homes, while being environmentally conscious.

“Envision is committed to producing the most beautiful low-maintenance decking you can buy, and doing it in a way that is responsible and sustainable for the long-term,” said Shara Gamble, Envision Director of Sales and Marketing. “We are proud of our use of recycled materials and are continuously looking to reduce our consumption of natural resources and reuse wherever we can.”

ENVISION DECKING’S EXCLUSIVE COMPRESSION TECHNOLOGY & NON-REPEATING GRAIN CREATES BEAUTY YOU CAN FEEL

Builders & distributors are invited to the TAMKO booth #N527 to experience the Envision difference

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – February 19, 2019 – In a sea of sameness, TAMKO Building Products, Inc. invites builders and architects to feel the difference of Envision Composite Lumber, the composite decking with a beauty so unique you must experience it through touch. Envision’s construction is the source of its more-than-surface-deep beauty.

Envision’s exclusive compression molding technology is the only one of its kind in the composite decking market, and uses tremendous heat and pressure to form the boards. Other composite boards on the market are extruded, then embossed with a grain pattern on the board’s surface. The Envision process compresses the beautiful wood-grain into the board for a deep grain you can feel and a natural-wood appearance complete with tree-like knots.

And that deep, wood-like grain never repeats across a single Envision deck board thanks to Envision’s proprietary manufacturing process. The leading competitor’s boards can repeat up to five times on each 16-foot board.

The beauty of this product could never be measured by a single deck board due to the non-repeating grain and striking shades with a variety of highlights. For instance, the Envision Distinction luxury collection boasts four to six colors and highlights per board that must be seen installed for a complete appreciation of the product’s unmatched aesthetics.

More Enhancements

From the perspective of Shara Gamble, marketing manager for TAMKO’s Envision line of decking products, today’s palette of colors is more than broad enough to help solve some of the indooroutdoor transition needs of clients seeking to visually merge indoor and outdoor living spaces. After spending months listening closely to their customers—both deck builders and remodelers— the real need is how best to meet the homeowners’ desired personalized touches for their deck design.

“Their needs are being met with the current color palette. But many of them expressed that they are running into some needs and demands from homeowners for personalization, and to meet the requests for some of the new ways that people are using these outdoor spaces,” Gamble says. “How can I install differently? How can I make things unique? How can I personalize them to this particular client?”

Following this response from its customers, the TAMKO Envision decking division wanted to make sure that all its newly expanded lines were interoperable for the deck builder. They recently came out with its Distinction line, which was extended to the Inspiration line and the Expression line. “It was important to us that a contractor could take an attribute from one of those lines and marry it to another to give an unique look. Those unique looks might be achieved by installing an accent or an inlay, as well as some different methods for installation to make curves. Homeowners want their decks to be new and modern and fresh.”

“[WE ARE] MOVING AWAY FROM THE TRADITIONAL LOOK AND FEEL OF A COMPOSITE BOARD.”
