MoistureShield

Composite decking and railing manufacturer MoistureShield entered a distribution partnership with Sherwood Lumber. The Melville, N.Y.-based distributor will carry the fill line of MoistureShield products throughout the northeast from its Palmer, Mass., Elizabeth, N.J., and Holtsville, N.Y., locations. The coverage area includes all of New England, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey.

“MoistureShield is excited to further strengthen our position in the northeast with the addition of Sherwood Lumber to our distribution network,” Matthew Bruce, vice president of sales for Moistureshield, said in a news release. “Sherwood’s service platform and marketing efforts combined with our collective sales teams, will help us continue to gain market presence and service the extensive dealer network throughout the region.”

MoistureShield’s Vision product line features the DiamondDefense Coating, which the manufacturer says is the strongest cap in the industry. Select Vision colors include the option of CoolDeck Technology, designed to reduce heat absorption by up to 35% compared to capped composites in a similar color, according to MoistureShield. The manufacturer also recently expanded its Elevate product line, an entry-level priced capped composite series, with two variegated colors: Alpine Gray and Riverbank.

“There is a resurgence in building that has created a substantial demand for composite decks in the northeast,” Todd London, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Sherwood Lumber, said. “We are strongly positioned to meet our customers’ needs with MoistureShield’s outstanding quality and innovation.”

MoistureShield is a division of Oldcastle APG, a CRH Company, and its composite decking and railing products are manufactured from 95% recycled content. Sherwood Lumber supplies more than 1800 lumberyards and manufacturers in the United States and Canada.
