Witt’s Woods & Greens Dock and Deck Projects with CAMO® Edge Fastening System Wins Deck Awards

Jon Witt of deck building firm Witt’s Woods & Greens based in Ontario, Canada, selected the CAMO® Edge Fastening System for two award-winning projects entered in the North American Deck & Railing Association’s 2017 deck competition.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  January 15, 2018

Jon Witt, owner of Witt’s Woods & Greens, selected the CAMO® Edge Fastening System for the construction of an award-winning two-story boathouse and dock on Sturgeon Lake, in Ontario. The North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA) named the dock the second place winner in the “Best Dock” category as part of its 2017 National Deck Competition. Witt’s crew used Western red cedar decking and fastened the edges with the CAMO Edge Fastening System using the Marksman Pro®-X1. The result is a secure, fastener-free surface solution that emphasizes the beauty of the dock and its rocky, cliffside surroundings.

Witt also won 2nd place in the wood deck category for a 380-square foot Thermory-modified scots pine deck treated with CUTEK Extreme. The multi-tiered deck in Lindsay, Ontario, features CAMO on all deck surfaces, trim and accessories.

“The system allows the beauty of wood such as the red cedar to shine through, without surface screws detracting from the look,”says Witt, who notes they discovered CAMO when they had to return to repair a deck where the surface face screws were out of alignment. “Aesthetics are very important to us as wood installers and we didn’t want to have that problem again.”

Located on Sturgeon Lake, the two-story boat house has 980 square ft. of deck area and sits at the bottom of a 45-foot rock cliff alongside the cliff wall. The upper deck is waterproofed to keep the boat house dry below.

“We had a callback on a leak in the waterproofing system and, because we used CAMO, we easily pulled up several boards and reinstalled them without damage,” he says. “As another benefit, since the edge-fastening system keeps water from resting in the screw holes, it also helps avoid water penetration that splits the wood over time, giving the deck greater longevity.”

Witt’s Woods & Greens, located in Fenelon Falls, Ontario, has used CAMO as their primary fastening system for several years. They rely on the Marksman Pro-X1 with 1/16 of an inch spacing.

With the CAMO Marksman Pro-X1, Witt’s crew can quickly and easily deliver CAMO® Edge Deck Screws into the edge of solid or grooved deck boards for fast installation. It employs a simple technology that is easy to use. The contractors simply load the proprietary deck screws into the hand-held guides that position them to be driven into the edge of the deck boards and provide automatic gapping. Special driver bits are included with the screws to ensure depth of drive.

CAMO offers several guides including the Marksman Pro, Marksman Pro®-X1, MarksmanPro-NB and the no-gap guide, Marksman Edge™ which ranges in cost from $20 to $50. They work with virtually any decking material—composite, PVC, and most soft and hard wood species with variations to accommodate nominal 6-inch boards as well as narrow boards, and offer a variety of spacing choices, including a no-gap option for treated wood decks that can also be used with secondary spacers when wider gaps are desired.

“We use CAMO for house trim fasteners as well and always have it on hand as a standard stock item,” says Witt. “We like the CAMO system for decks because it’s quick and easy to learn, the presets only let it go as deep as it has to go, and it’s very user friendly. I can’t see us using anything else in the future–it’s too beneficial to our business.”

About CAMO Edge Fastening
CAMO Edge Fastening™ from National Nail delivers beautiful, fastener-free, Barefoot Approved™ results with virtually any wood, composite or PVC decking. CAMO® offers a variety of guides, fasteners, and accessories, as well as a collated system to suit project requirements.

Trex Commercial Products Debuts Custom Railing Solutions at IBS

PRESS RELEASE

“From stadiums and large public works to universities and hospitals, no two commercial projects are alike – and their railing systems shouldn’t be either,” noted John Lewis, president and CEO of Trex Commercial Products. “Instead, Trex Commercial Products takes an individualized approach by designing, engineering and manufacturing custom railing solutions tailored to each specific project.”

Trex Commercial Products will showcase several of these solutions within the Trex Company booth (#W3440) at this year’s show, including:

  • Tensiline Cable Rail – A popular look at stadiums and other settings where sightlines are paramount, TCP’s Tensiline Cable Rail system is designed and constructed using stainless steel cables and a selection of stainless steel fittings and turnbuckles. The use of stainless steel cable allows for minimal sightline obstruction, while a variety of materials, finishes and colors are available to create the desired look for any project.
  • Gridguard™ Rail – An industrial look that offers strength and security, TCP’s Gridguard™ Perforated Rail and Mesh Rail systems are available in a variety of wire mesh panels and other infill materials, with flexible mounting methods that allow for use in nearly any location. A variety of materials, finishes, colors and infill attachment styles are available to meet specific facility requirements.
  • Line Rail – A sleek, contemporary style that offers the luxurious look of glass infill, the Line series is characterized by the clean, modern rod style standoff and glass mount. Builders can choose between top rail and handrail options, determine top-mount or fascia-mount surface attachment, and specify infill glass material, thickness and orientation for complete customization.
  • Track Rail – A popular interior look, Track Rail with glass infill provides a bright, airy atmosphere to any setting. The beauty lies in its subtlety, as the system is designed and constructed without the use of vertical balusters or posts between glass infill panels for high visibility throughout the space. The Track Rail system can be customized with multiple cladding options and glass types, including tempered, laminated, low iron, fritted, PVB interlayer, SGP interlayer, colored interlayer and patterned interlayer.
  • Dot Rail – The most distinguishable feature of the Dot Rail series is its unobtrusive circular glass mounts attached to TCP’s trapezoidal posts. Both handrail and top rail choices have three distinct rail standoff options creating more design flexibility – a rectangular base plate side mount for a clean mounting solution, a node-style side mount for a minimalistic installation look and an oval side mount base plate for a more linear, compact look.

“The Trex Commercial Products team has supplied railing for some of the largest projects in the country, and this wealth of experience provides us with the ability and expertise to achieve unrivaled customization and customer service,” said James E. Cline, president and CEO of Trex Company. “Through Trex Commercial Products, we aim to expand the relationship with builders and architects across the category. We’re thrilled to make our debut with such a strong line-up of core products that lay the foundation for future innovation within the commercial railing industry.”

PRESS RELEASE

TimberTech’s Legacy Collection was the first hand-scraped decking in the capped wood composite category, taking a trend seen in interior hardwood flooring, and bringing it to the outdoors.  After completing extensive research over the past year looking at consumer demand and design trends in outdoor living, TimberTech is introducing three new colors to its premium Legacy Collection. The additions include: Sequoia™, Espresso, and Whitewash Cedar™. Dedicated to providing homeowners with authentic, real-wood alternatives, the AZEK Building Products design team recognized an unmet need in the market for more dramatic designs and colors, including white decking, a color that has generated extremely positive initial feedback from customers.

Confident in its quality, TimberTech decking is also announcing a new warranty, upgrading from a 25-year to a 30-year limited warranty, complementing its industry-leading 30-year limited fade and stain warranty. With a superior protective polymer cap on all four sides of the board that eliminates any organic materials, TimberTech capped composites have the strength to battle almost anything Mother Nature brings. TimberTech decking is splinter free and is resistant to rot, mold, mildew and moisture damage.

ENVISION® DECKING CRAFTED IN THE USA;

BUILDING A LEGACY OF BEAUTIFYING AMERICA

ORLANDO, FLORIDA  January 9, 2018  TAMKO Building Products, Inc.’s Envision® decking is made in the heartland of the USA.  For the past nearly two decades, TAMKO has been producing composite decking at its Midwestern facility in Lamar, Missouri.

“Our Envision decking product is uniquely beautiful and proudly made by our hardworking employees, right here in the USA,” said TAMKO’s Executive Vice President Tim Whelan.

Even American musical artist Darryl Worley, well known for his numerous hit songs, including his latest single, “Lonely Alone”, and those that reached number one on the Country music charts, “I Miss My Friend”, “Have You Forgotten” (a 9/11 tribute ballad) and “Awful, Beautiful Life”, recently chose Envision® to beautify his home in Tennessee.

“I enjoy relaxing outdoors and taking in the view from my back deck,” said Worley. “I chose Envision decking because I wanted a good-looking, low-maintenance product that would give me more time to enjoy those relaxing moments with my family. The fact that it’s an American made product is important to me.”

According to the Alliance for American Manufacturing, “Buying American-made is the most direct way anyone can support American manufacturing and manufacturing jobs”.1

“TAMKO is an American company all the way – heart and soul,” said Whelan. “We’ve been making building products in the USA for more than 70 years. Our company story is one of American entrepreneurialism at its finest.”

Founded in 1944, TAMKO remains headquartered in Joplin, Missouri – where it began. The company now operates multiple manufacturing and warehouse facilities across the USA while remaining wholly owned and operated by its third generation of the founding family’s leadership.

Since entering the composite decking market in 1999, TAMKO’s significant manufacturing experience, dedication to teamwork and unparalleled obsession with quality has made Envision® decking one of the most recognizable brands in the American decking market.

To learn more about this American crafted product, visit TAMKO’s Envision® booth # W3101, January 9-11, at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida or go to EnvisionDecking.com to find out where to locate Envision® near you.

MN Deck for a Soldier® build will be completed just in time for Christmas

 

DECEMBER 21ST, 2017 UPDATE

The crews in MN are wrapping up the build today! Below are some pictures.  Final photos will be taken tonight when the build is complete.

A serious shout out to Bob Lett and Mark Fisher from Wolf Home Products!  They FROZE and went the distance on this build, on top of almost $7K in materials. A very special thank you to Pat Noonan from Deck and Basement Co. who has tirelessly taken the lead role in putting this entire project together & kept it on track to finish before Christmas.

Gallery of images from the MN D4S Build: 

December 19th, 2017 UPDATE

*Updated

NADRA’s Deck for a Soldier® build in MN is moving along nicely. Our friends up North could use some cheering on. You can send encouragement by posting comments below. It’s been a cold few weeks and these guys are putting in some serious hours trying to wrap up this deck in time for Christmas. 

Pat Noonan from Deck and Basement Co., his team & the crew at Jigsaw Builders installed the framing for the new deck last week. Pat Noonan took the lead in custom bending the decking for the curved front at Pro Deck Supply and Lumberyard. As you read this, the guys are on site installing the Wolf brand decking. Bob Lett, VP of National Sales for Wolf flew in to help with the build along with with Mark Fischer. The crew from Infinite Decks are assisting with the install as well.

 

DECEMBER 6TH, 2017   UPDATE

The MN D4S project is ready to rumble. 

Props need to go out to the Brawlers from Crossroads Remodeling for TCB on the existing dilapidated deck/porch that was there.  I brought lunch to give them some afternoon energy and they were raking up the last shards of wood, not quite sure how they did all that in 4 hours.

Craig and Craig (no joke) from GoliathTech got the build started installing their Helical footings with a balmy -2 windchill and snow on the ground.  Although with a fresh layer of ice out on the roads I think it took them way longer to drive there than it did to actually set the footings.

It took Mark from Infinite Decks about 2 minutes on the site to sell me on his curves.  We decided if we are going to do this thing it lets do it right, big and nice curves.  Check out his awesome renderings of the masterpiece we are about to create.

Looks like Santa Claus from the Deck Store in Apple Valley is going to give us an early Christmas present by donating all the green for the project.  Thanks Bob-we really appreciate your support!

Framing starts next week with the team from Deck and Basement and Jigsaw Builders-with a projected high of 15 on Tuesday they better be working fast to keep themselves warm…

-Pat Noonan

November 21st, 2017   UPDATE

Just a quick update as this Thanksgiving week winds down.  One of the things that we should all be thankful about are the men and women who keep our great country safe.  Please be sure to say a Thanksgiving prayer for all of our armed forces both home and abroad.

The Minnesota region has begun it’s Deck for a Soldier® project on a Veterans home.  They have torn down the old deck and are getting ready to begin the build once permits are in order.  They may still need a pledge of pressure treated lumber for the framing, so if you can help please click on this link  or contact myself or Pat Noonan.  We are also looking someone to pledge a plaque that would hang on or near this deck to acknowledge the NADRA Deck for a Soldier® program for donating the deck.  Again, please click on the provided link or contact one of us.

The Northeastern region is currently drawing up the plans and will get the permit paperwork submitted in the near future.  They are hoping to begin their build in January or February.  Once this project gets closer we will be looking for pledges for this project as well.

I hope that you all are able to spend quality time with friends and family over the Thanksgiving holiday.  Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Best Wishes,

NADRA Members begin building a deck for Minnesota Alliance Council for Veterans (MACV)
NADRA members in MN got together to plan this years Deck for a Soldier® build. They chose MACV as their recipient. This worthy organization runs multiple transitional living homes for Veterans in crisis to help them get back on their feet and back into their own independent housing.  One of their homes has an old deck that has been condemned by the City of Minneapolis and is literally falling apart.
Pat Noonan, Deck and Basement Company is leading the project with the support of many local members. Pat writes to the crews just this morning:
Welcome to NADRA and thank you for supporting this worthwhile organization. As a member for 10 years I can attest to the knowledge, friendships and networking I have gained since joining.  Great to hear that you may be interested in helping with our D4S project, I have attached information on the recipient and project details.  We are planning to demo on Friday and finalize plans early next week once we have existing deck removed.  I will send permit plans to you as soon as we have them.  Hoping to have permit and be ready for footings the week after Thanksgiving. Thanks for your support, feel free to reach out with any questions.”
