Solid Core

The Solid Core Difference™

We offer the only composite boards in the industry that can be installed on the ground, in the ground or underwater without any structural performance issues. At the foundation of every board is our proprietary Solid Core — an impermeable barrier that fights damage from moisture, rot, insects and other harmful elements. Our core maintains its integrity even after ripping and cutting, mitigating warranty issues and long-term damage.

  • Warp Rot
    No warping or rotting
  • Zero Field Failures
    Zero structural field failures in 30+ years
  • Moisture
    Virtually no moisture absorption
  • Insects
    Resists damage from insects

The best choice for low maintenance, outdoor living spaces.

Zero Failures

Our products have stood up to the elements for more than 30 years with no structural field failures. That means beautiful outdoor living spaces that stand the test of time with less issues.

Sustainability Matters

We care about every material that goes into our boards. That’s why our environmentally friendly products are made from 95% recycled content and can help earn credit in LEED® green building rating programs.

All MoistureShield wood composite decking and accessories are made with:

  • 25% Post-consumer recycled content
  • 70% Pre-consumer recycled content
  • 95% Total recycled content

The energy saved from plastic and wood recycled annually by MoistureShield is comparable to taking 45 thousand vehicles off the road.

Not only does a 12´ x 12´ MoistureShield deck save 110 gallons of gas, it also reduces greenhouse gases by the equivalent of over 1,500 lbs. CO2.

Every piece of wood used to make our products is 100% recycled, meaning no trees are cut down.
