A better manufacturing process makes for better deck boards. That’s the Tamko philosophy and the principal reason why Arrowhead Building Supply is proud to carry the EverGrain line of decking products.
Exclusive to Tamko, compression molding creates composite deck boards through tremendous heat and pressure. The compressive forces squeeze out air pockets and create a dense board with outstanding strength. It also allows for the use of more grain patterns, resulting in a more random and natural wood look.
As the only compression molded composite decking on the market, EverGrain products create beauty unlike extruded composite deck boards. Compare EverGrain’s beauty side-by-side against the appearance of the leading competitor and see the difference it makes.
To get a closer look at the difference compression molding makes in creating more random natural beauty, you actually have to take a step back — and view an entire deck board.
Space doesn’t allow us to lay out a 16-foot board but the image on the right of a four-foot section shows exactly what you’ll see as you examine and compare the grain pattern between EverGrain and its leading competitor.
Notice how the competitor’s pattern repeats every 37-3/8 inches — that’s the same grain pattern repeated five times on a single 16-foot board. EverGrain creates a pattern that never repeats across the entire board for a more natural wood look.
An authentic wood grain look is one of the most important details that distinguishes the beauty of your composite deck. Once again, different manufacturing processes create very different results.
At the top of the EverGrain product line is the Envision. Built upon the same core of compressed materials as the basic EverGrain board, Tamko adheres an outer layer to provide additional protection, durability and beauty.
Envision’s outer layer is specially formulated to create a low-sheen appearance for more realistic and natural looking wood beauty. The compressed outer layer creates a physical bond between the outer layer and core board to help prevent delamination.
Tamko stands behind its product as well, providing a 20-year Limited Warranty against rotting, splintering, splitting and termite damage and 20-year Stain Resistance Limited Warranty against common food and beverage stains such as mustard, ketchup, barbecue sauce, canola oil, fruit punch, wince and coffee.
To complete your EverGrain deck in all its intended elegance, Tamko developed EG 1•2•3 Hidden Fasteners for a smooth deck surface and outstanding stability without the bounce of other hidden fasteners. EG 1•2•3 Hidden Fasteners come with a 15-year Limited Warranty.
No decking project would be complete without a coordinating railing system and for the EverGrain products, Tamko designed the Marquee Railing System.
Made with a durable coextruded formulation, the Marquee system creates a low-sheen appearance for more authentic wood beauty. Distinctive post caps, rings and brackets, designed with a hammered-metal look, complement the natural beauty and convey a truly handcrafted effect.
