Envision Decking Enhances Contractor Resources

TAMKO Building Products, Inc. introduces a powerful, new tool that contractors can use to help close the sale when pitching a deck project. The Envision® Contractor Box is now available exclusively for contractors and contains beautiful imagery, one-of-a-kind swatch cards and decking samples. These valuable assets are designed to find the perfect decking to match a homeowner’s individual style.

“We want contractors to feel confident when working with our composite decking products,” said Envision Decking Director of Sales and Marketing Shara Gamble. “The Contractor Box equips contractors with our latest homeowner-focused marketing material specially tailored to help them win at the kitchen table.”

These cards are a fresh and convenient way for homeowners to color-match other items including furniture, siding, hardscape materials and much more when shopping for their dream deck. The cards contain extraordinary installation images on one side and a close-up product shot on the other.   

“Contractors need items they can leave with homeowners so they have a chance to compare their selections and think about the full project aesthetics,” Gamble said. “Homeowners want to consider, ‘does this match the other features of my deck, like the fire pit stone or counter tops for the outdoor kitchen?’”

The easy-to-use cards also include beautiful photos of impressive installations of Envision and EverGrain products so homeowners get a true sense of how quality composite decking can transform their outdoor space into an elegant oasis built to last.

And finally, each Box holds a sample piece of every color offering from both the Envision and EverGrain composite decking lines to provide homeowners with the ultimate touch and feel experience. Together, the Contractor Box pieces present a beautiful and professional product introduction to homeowners, and help elevate the professional presenting these distinctly beautiful products.

Contractors attending the International Builder Show can be one of the first to see the Envision Contractor Box in the TAMKO decking booth #N527, February 19-21, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
