Composite decking and railing manufacturer MoistureShield is extending the distribution of its decking products in Alaska, Hawaii, and the Pacific northwest through a partnership with Specialty Forest Products. The distribution partnership includes Specialty Forest Products’ branches in Spokane, Wash., Tacoma, Wash., and Bozeman, Mont. The branch locations will carry MoistureShield Vision, Elevate, and Vantage composite decking product lines.

“We’re excited to partner with Specialty Forest Products in the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and Hawaii as we continue to expand our distribution footprint across North American,” Matthew Bruce, vice president of sales for MoistureShield, said in a news release. “Specialty Forest Products has a significant presence in some of the most extreme weather regions in the country. We both feel MoistureShield will add tremendous value with its unique technology and performance attributes.”

All MoistureShield decking products feature the Solid Core Difference for advanced strength and moisture resistance, and can be installed directly on the ground, in the ground, or under water. The manufacturer's Vision product line features its DiamondDefense Coating, offering scratch, stain, and damage on impact resistance. The product line features the option of CoolDeck Technology, which MoistureShield says reduces heat absorption by up to 35% compared to traditional capped composite boards in a similar color. The company also recently introduced Elevate, an entry-level capped composite decking product.

“MoistureShield will help us meet the unprecedented demand for high-performance building products in our region,” Mike Stump, president of Specialty Forest Products, said. “Our new partnership will provide our customers with a capped wood composite decking solution that performs a wide range of terrains and unique climates.”

MoistureShield is a division of Oldcastle APG, a CRH company, and its composite decking and railing products are manufactured from 95% recycled content.
