TAMKO® Introduces Envision Inspiration® Composite Lumber

Inspiration is the third offering in TAMKO®’s Envision® Collection of capped composite lumber.

TAMKO® Building Products, Inc. introduces the newest member of its Envision® Collection of capped composite lumber: Envision Inspiration®. The rare beauty of this unique decking board will be revealed to the public at the International Builders Show in Orlando, Florida on January 10, 2017.

Envision Inspiration® takes a que from nature with softly blended hues creating warmth and a one-of-a-kind character that is reflected in the name of its three new colors – Weathered Wicker, which incorporates a spectrum of relaxing darker browns; Tangled Twine, which captures shades of light brown; and Barnwood Plank, which balances deep gray tones.

TAMKO®’s Senior Director Decking, Brian Lowry, said, “Inspiration has softer highlights than the bold look of TAMKO®’s Envision Distinction®, but a definite two-tone color that sets it apart from the recently introduced, solid color Envision Expression® board.”

Inspiration is the third offering in TAMKO®’s Envision® Collection of capped composite lumber, which offers something for homes of every style and customers at every price point.

One look at TAMKO®’s striking Envision® Collection when installed sets it apart from the sea of same looking boards offered by the competition. The difference is TAMKO®’s exclusive compression molding process that produces deep grain wood-like textures and more random patterns of rich color, creating a matchless beauty.

According to TAMKO®’s Executive Vice President, Tim Whelan, “Inspiration is the culmination of a challenge to our Six Sigma and manufacturing organizations to design a product with incredible beauty, character and warmth, distinct from anything in the market. I believe they hit it out of the park. Inspiration is an amazing looking product, and I expect it to be an outstanding success in the market.”

With the addition of Inspiration, TAMKO® rounds out its family of capped decking boards with an array of solid, muted and bold tones designed for people who want to Envision® life on their decks.

Inspiration is available for customer orders now and will begin shipping in January.
