MONROE, Ohio, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Deceuninck North America, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality systems for windows, doors, and outdoor living, is pleased to congratulate Bangor, ME-based contractor Alvin Smith of Hickory Dickory Decks who received First Place and a People's Choice Award in the "Bangor Daily News Maine 2013 Garden Show and Spring Fling" Best in Show Landscaping Contest. The deck was built with Deceuninck's Clubhouse® PVC Decking and Clubhouse Elite Railing, which featured a garden-like area of trees and shrubs surrounded by decorative stones.
The Bangor Daily News Maine Garden Show and Spring Fling took place in early April at the Bangor Auditorium and Civic Center in Bangor, ME featuring a weekend of music, vendors, gardening, children's activities and more.
"On behalf of Deceuninck North America, we are pleased to recognize Alvin for these awards, which further demonstrate the features and benefits of our decking and railing products," said Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. "Clubhouse Decking and Railing products offer a true value proposition to builders, contractors and homebuyers looking for an attractive, durable and low-maintenance decking solution."
Deceuninck North America's Clubhouse Decking is 100-percent PVC and contains no wood or wood fillers. It is formulated to be up to 25-percent lighter than most wood and composites, and its dense cell structure offers superior strength and solid underfoot feel with Deceuninck's Korelite™ technology. Korelite also helps to keep moisture out and helps reduce the opportunity for degradation from mold, mildew, freezing and thawing. SunShield® technology helps protect Clubhouse from the harsh effects of the sun, including UV resistance and fade protection, resistance to cracking and brittleness, and surface degradation. Clubhouse Decking is also 100-percent recyclable and does not require painting or staining. It features a limited lifetime warranty with 25-year fade and stain protection backed by Deceuninck.
Deceuninck's Clubhouse Elite Railing System is engineered to be longer-lasting than painted wood and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty with 25-year fade and stain coverage. It is 100-percent recyclable and the low-maintenance nature of the product means no chemical cleaning, painting or staining is necessary. Available in white, walnut, and black, Elite Railing's low-gloss, low-maintenance finish means that the product never needs to be painted. For extra protection, Deceuninck North America's exclusive SunShield® technology provides time-tested color retention with superior stain, mold and mildew resistance.
Late last year, Clubhouse Decking and Railing achieved code compliance with the International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) for structural and product performance.
