Atlanta, GA02/01/2020

MoistureShield Also Wins Platinum Award for Best Channel Marketing Campaign


MoistureShield®, a division of Oldcastle APG and manufacturer of innovative composite decking and railing, has earned one of the industry’s highest honors – Marketer of the Year in Hanley Wood’s 2019 Brand Builder Awards. The winning campaign beat out 80 other entrants and encompassed brand strategy, advertising, design, social media and public relations. The campaign incorporated unique messaging, enabling the brand to boldly stand out in the decking category. MoistureShield also won a Platinum Award for Best Channel Marketing Campaign to support and engage their valued distributor and dealer network. 

MoistureShield’s Excel. Defy. Inspire. campaign dared to be different from most decking manufacturers whose marketing is blanketed with typical deck photography. But who can identify one product from another? Bringing to life MoistureShield’s solid core technology, the winning campaign takes a deep dive with vivid, real-life underwater scenarios to drive home the message that MoistureShield performs even underwater. This resonates with homeowners in any climate subjected to humidity, rain, snow or ice.  

“This is an incredible win for MoistureShield composite decking and shows how far the brand and business have come since Oldcastle APG acquired the company over a year ago,” said Ken O’Neill, EVP – National Group for APG.  “We listened to our customers to ensure MoistureShield would deliver more value to our channel partners and contractors. Our marketing team’s close collaboration with our marketing agency, Interrupt, has elevated our composite decking brand and positioned our quality MoistureShield product lines for unprecedented growth.” 

“Our goal was to leverage this unique product and create dynamic differentiation from the current sea-of-sameness in the category,” said Anita Holman, Executive Creative Director and Brand Strategist, InterruptWe are looking forward to continuing this brand journey with MoistureShield and helping gain category prominence.”
