Why We Use MoistureShield
As one of New Jersey’s premier outdoor living design/build professionals, My Deck is committed to providing our clients with the best materials and building solutions available. We are partnered with only the industry’s leading manufacturers like MoistureShield due to the company’s high-quality products. One product that we use quite often incorporates MoistureShield’s innovative CoolDeck® Technology, which is available in the Vision and Meridian lines. This heat-resistant composite decking is truly cooler to the touch, reducing heat absorption and providing a more comfortable outdoor environment all season long. CoolDeck® Technology products are our go-to for clients who are decking areas with full sun exposure and have a concern about the heat. In addition, all MoistureShield products feature Solid Core technology, which forms an impermeable barrier throughout the composite decking that fights damage from moisture, rot, insects and other harmful elements while allowing for minimal expansion and installations at grade level where you would normally not install decking. In fact, there’s basically no area where you can’t use the product.
My Deck + MoistureShield in Action
The My Deck team recently finished a backyard project in Flemington, New Jersey, using MoistureShield’s Meridian composite decking. The deck was set to cover quite an expansive area between the house and the pool. We chose MoistureShield’s Citadel color, which not only complemented the pool area and hardscape, but also satisfied the client’s concern about high surface temperatures on the deck during the summer months. The family wanted to make sure the decking would be sustainable in bare feet for kids and adults. Meridian Citadel checked all the boxes and turned out to be the perfect application. The client truly loves their backyard space–and why wouldn’t they? It’s gorgeous!
We often use MoistureShield’s Vision line for our clients’ projects. Vision is the industry’s strongest capped wood composite board and is protected with MoistureShield’s exclusive DiamondDefense™ to exude distinctive style while resisting scratches, stains, and damage on impact. Both the Vision and Meridian lines work very well for custom curve applications. Having the ability to bend and shape this composite decking for curved elements on our steel framing allows us to be more creative with endless design opportunities. For us that’s truly a game changer.
Our partnership with MoistureShield allows us to bring the highest quality products to our customers, which ultimately reflects on our company helping to retain our position as one of The Garden State’s leading professional deck builders.
