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.
