Envision Decking’s Exclusive Compression Technology & Non-Repeating Grain Creates Beauty You Can Feel

Builders & distributors are invited to the TAMKO booth #N527 to experience the Envision difference

In a sea of sameness, TAMKO Building Products, Inc. invites builders and architects to feel the difference of Envision Composite Lumber, the composite decking with a beauty so unique you must experience it through touch. Envision’s construction is the source of its more-than-surface-deep beauty.

Envision Decking - Rustic Walnut outdoor kitchenEnvision’s exclusive compression molding technology is the only one of its kind in the composite decking market, and uses tremendous heat and pressure to squeeze out air pockets from the deck boards. Other composite boards on the market are extruded, then embossed with a grain pattern on the board’s surface. The Envision process compresses the beautiful wood-grain into the board for a deep grain you can feel and a natural-wood appearance complete with tree-like knots.

And that deep, wood-like grain never repeats across a single Envision deck board thanks to Envision’s proprietary manufacturing process. The leading competitor’s boards can repeat up to five times on each 16-foot board.

The beauty of this product could never be measured by a single deck board due to the non-repeating grain and striking shades with a variety of highlights. For instance, the Envision Distinction luxury collection boasts four to six colors and highlights per board that must be seen installed for a complete appreciation of the product’s unmatched aesthetics.

“Envision is strikingly beautiful – the colors and patterns set it apart,” said Shara Gamble, TAMKO Director of Decking Sales and Marketing. “But when you get close enough to feel the boards, then you really understand what makes this product so special.”

Attendees of the International Builders’ Show are invited to feel the beauty of Envision Decking for themselves at the TAMKO decking booth #N527, February 19-21, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
