What’s Next in Outdoor Living?

Top 10 Trends for 2020

WINCHESTER, Va. – The popularity of outdoor living spaces has never been higher, and the appeal of the great outdoors seems to keep getting greater with homeowners across the country investing more time and money into their outdoor spaces. As the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing, and leader in high-performance, low-maintenance outdoor living products, Trex Company keeps a finger on the pulse of this rapidly growing industry. Based on input from internal experts and insights from dealers, contractors and industry insiders, the company has, once again, compiled its annual Outdoor Living Forecast predicting design trends for 2020 and beyond.

“It’s always fascinating to compare the trends reported by our customers with those projected by the industry at large,” notes Leslie Adkins, vice president of marketing for Trex Company. “This year, we added insights from two high-profile design and lifestyle experts – Alison Victoria and Evette Rios – to the mix. Their perspectives helped to reinforce our predictions and take our forecast to a whole new level.”

Following are 10 trends that will influence outdoor living as we begin a new decade of design:

1.Mixed Materials

Say so long to matchy, matchy and monochromatic. 2020 is the year to mix it up – both indoors and out. Add visual interest to an outdoor space by juxtaposing materials such as concrete and composite, wicker and aluminum, copper and stone. Integrate nature-inspired materials that maintain cohesion with the natural surroundings, and infuse color and pattern with pillows, cushions, furnishings and decorative accents.

2.Industrial Inspiration

As homeowners increasingly find inspiration for their outdoor spaces in commercial settings, like upscale hotels and restaurants, there is a growing shift toward sleek, contemporary designs and materials, larger expanses of glass, smooth surfaces, and clean lines. Outdoors, this trend is manifesting in more commercially inspired railing styles. Trex Signature® Railing, for instance, features a range of minimalist, yet sturdy, aluminum options, including rod rail, glass panels and mesh inserts – designed to optimize sightlines and deliver a modern, industrial flair.

3.Cladding

Another commercial-to-residential trend is the use of cladding, which is growing in popularity across the country. Functionally, cladding provides a protective rainscreen to a home or outdoor living area, while also improving curb appeal. Modern exteriors with clean lines and simple designs are among those attributes most commonly requested by homebuyers and homeowners with a particular emphasis on wood looks. For those seeking the aesthetics of wood cladding without the hassles of constant upkeep, composite cladding offers a high-performance, low-maintenance alternative.

“Anyone who follows my work knows that I’m all about cladding. I’m also all about the ease and aesthetics of Trex composite boards,” says Victoria, host of HGTV’s ‘Windy City Rehab.’ “I use Trex for all of my cladding applications – and even have it on my own deck at home. It is fresh and distinctive and lends a modern interior aesthetic to an outdoor space.”

4.Outdoor Kitchens

As the foodie phenomenon continues to thrive, homeowners are increasingly making room – both in their budgets and floorplans – for outdoor kitchens. In recent years, outdoor cooking areas have evolved from stand-alone grills to fully appointed spaces with specialty appliances ranging from smokers and side burners to pizza ovens and integrated refrigerated storage. Capturing this trend is the new Trex® Outdoor Kitchens collection. The luxurious lineup features stainless steel cabinetry solutions in color and style options that allow designers and homeowners to create functional spaces that rival interior kitchens – all crafted to withstand and endure exposure to the elements.

5.Vertical Gardens

Among the biggest trends for 2020 is natural greenery. Installing a vertical garden or ‘living wall’ outside your home can give you plenty of extra space for growing your favorite plants while also serving as an attractive, artful addition to your deck. There are numerous plans, tips and tutorials available online for designing and building a vertical garden. For optimal structural support and aesthetics, Trex® Cladding is an ideal choice for these projects, delivering premium aesthetics with all the durability, low-maintenance and eco-friendly benefits of Trex decking.

6.Fire Features

The allure of flickering flames from an outdoor fire are hard to rival or resist, which is why fire features will continue to be ‘hot’ this season. Available in a variety of shapes, sizes and finishes, fire features add warmth, ambience and a touch of drama to any deck or patio. Fire pots, such as those in the new Trex® Outdoor Fire & Water collection, can be positioned almost anywhere to create a cozy gathering spot – or combined in a series to provide an ambient boundary for larger outdoor areas. For even greater visual impact, a fire table can serve as a focal point and elevate the luxury and comfort of an outdoor space. Whether a warm summer evening or a cold winter night, a fire feature can make it feel like it’s a good idea to be outside any time of the year.

7.Soothing Water

Few outdoor elements elicit the same reaction as a well-placed water feature. The soothing sound of trickling water conjures calm and can set a relaxed tone and atmosphere. It can also act as a charming focal point for a backyard and can tie together an entire landscape. In addition to distinctive fire elements, the new Trex® Outdoor Fire & Water collection features a range of water spillways and water bowls made of premium-grade copper and stainless steel, and expertly engineered to ensure smooth water flow and optimal aesthetics to add beauty and tranquility to any outdoor space.

8.Creative Privacy

Urban outdoor spaces and smaller yards will benefit from big imaginations and clever innovations in 2020. Inspired by home improvement TV and magazines, look for design-savvy, yet space-constrained, homeowners to employ inventive uses of screening, fencing, all-weather curtains, and lattice to maximize area and privacy in creative ways.

9.Bonus Space

If you have a raised deck, there is undoubtedly some open space underneath. While, historically, this space has been used for storage, the design trend for 2020 is to turn it into bonus living space by installing a deck drainage system. Designed to divert water away from a deck, systems such as Trex® RainEscape® create dry space beneath an elevated deck that can be outfitted with everything from furniture and accessories to lighting fixtures, ceiling fans and entertainment components. This deck feature allows homeowners to maximize their space and provides convenient cover from the sun and rain.

10.Year-Round Retreats

As outdoor living continues to gain popularity across all regions, homeowners are becoming more willing to invest in elements that will extend the use of their outdoor spaces past sunset and past the traditional outdoor living season. Deck lighting incorporated into railings, post caps and stairs can increase safety and ambience while also extending the time that homeowners can spend outdoors. Pergolas, patio umbrellas and misters offer respite and refreshment on hot, sunny days. When temperatures drop, heating features, cozy throws and protective screens can provide welcome warmth and allow for use and enjoyment of an outdoor space all year long.

Feeney, Inc. Partners with NADRA to Promote Deck Safety

OAKLAND, Calif. – May 13, 2020 Feeney, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high quality stainless steel and aluminum railing systems, has teamed up with NADRA (North American Deck and Railing Association) to promote deck safety during Deck Safety Month®.

Presented each May by NADRA, Deck Safety Month® is focused on raising awareness of deck safety for building industry professionals and homeowners. According to NADRA, an estimated 30 million of the more than 60 million residential and commercial decks located in the U.S. have exceeded their useful life and are in need of repair or replacement. 

And those numbers have significant consequences. During a single four-year period, more than 220,000 people nationwide were injured while on their deck or porch. Approximately 15 percent of those injuries resulted from a structural failure or collapse, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. 

“As outdoor living grows in popularity, it has become even more important to make sure outdoor structures such as decks are properly built and maintained,” said Andrew Toimil, chief product officer for Feeney, Inc. “Over the years, decks are exposed to sun, rain, snow and extreme temperature changes. Regularly inspecting them will help to ensure they remain strong and safe, providing valuable peace of mind for homeowners.”

Most experts agree that wood decks have an average lifespan of 10 to 15 years. After that point, even routinely sealed decks become more susceptible to wood rot and other potential hazards that can compromise their safety. In addition, structural elements can contribute to deck failure, including incorrectly flashed ledger board, dropped or heaved deck footings, rusty or missing metal connectors, and insufficient railings. To help ensure long-term success in a deck project, it is important that decks are properly constructed, including using proper blocking to reduce bounce and provide structural integrity, along with strong, weather-resistant fasteners.

NADRA has developed checklists and safety awareness information for consumers to ensure they have the information required to thoroughly evaluate their decks. Consumers can also learn about deck safety considerations in How Safe is Your Deck? Four Warning Signs You Should Know About

Feeney is a Deck Safety Ambassador and longstanding supporter of NADRA, which has created campaigns and educational programs, along with certifications for building industry professionals to promote proper deck installation practices. Feeney also offers online technical resources developed to provide deck professionals with in-depth railing specifications and installation information.

MoistureShield Raises Safety Awareness with North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA) for Deck Safety Month® in May 2020

MoistureShield partners with NADRA as a Safety Ambassador to create awareness for Deck Safety Month® and encourages homeowners to ensure their deck is safe before planning family activities.

At a time when safety has never been more important for deck builders and their customers,MoistureShield is partnering with NADRA as a Safety Ambassador to create awareness for Deck Safety Month® in May 2020. NADRA devotes this month each year to remind homeowners to Check Your Deck® before planning family activities.

“With more than 60 million decks in the U.S., we estimate that 30 million decks are past their useful life and need repair or replacement,” said Michael Beaudry, executive vice president of NADRA.

These are strong reasons why NADRA and MoistureShield encourage homeowners to call on a professional inspector to inspect their decks if they have any concerns. Here are some basic red flags to look for:

  • Check for any deck board movement that may attribute to instability.
  • Examine decks for sagging, racking, or unsecured boards that may indicate loose fasteners.
  • Check the gap between ledger and joist–a widened gap may indicate that bolts need tightening.
  • Look for raised or corroded fasteners which may compromise the integrity of the deck structurally and on the surface, present a trip hazard or danger to bare feet.

“As part of Oldcastle APG, MoistureShield leads with safety first, in all aspects of how we go to market,” said Matthew Bruce, VP of Sales, MoistureShield. “Deck safety extends beyond just our products. Ensuring we support deck building best practices in the field is integral to our success, and the safety of our consumers.”

MoistureShield also has inherent safety features in many of its products. To keep homeowners safer, MoistureShield’s innovative CoolDeck® Technology reduces deck surface temperatures by up to 35% as a solution for decks or docks in direct sunlight. MoistureShield decking features superior slip resistance among composite options, offering homeowners great traction regardless of weather or proximity to water.

Montgomery County’s Department of Permitting Services to Celebrate May as ‘Building Safety Month’ with Series of Events Including Free Residential Deck Inspections

Montgomery County’s Department of Permitting Services (DPS) will join in the celebration of the 40th Annual “Building Safety Month” with a series of activities including free inspections of residential decks. The theme of this year’s worldwide safety campaign is “Safer Buildings, Safer Communities, Safer World.”

The theme highlights the importance of building codes for providing a strong and resilient-built environment, and regularly updated codes that ensure that communities are protected in the face of disasters.
Although residents are under restrictions for group gatherings, even in private settings, during the COVID-19 health crisis, it is anticipated that future improving conditions will lead to social gatherings—including those on residential decks. Last year, there were two reported collapses in Montgomery County—making the free DPS deck inspection program even more critical.

Residents can call 311 or 240-777-0311 to find out more information about the deck inspection program and to schedule an appointment.  
“As the new director for Permitting Services, I am excited to highlight on how DPS works to keep our communities safe,” said Mitra Pedoeem. “The DPS ‘Check Your Deck’ program has been a staple of the celebration of Building Safety Month. Even though we are working within the protocols necessitated by the health crisis, DPS will be able to offer residents free deck inspections again this May. We hope many residents take advantage of this program to ensure that their families and guests will be safe.”
This year’s Building Safety Month includes four weekly themes and DPS has webinars planned corresponding to each. The schedule:

  • May 1-10: Disaster Preparedness. DPS will host a webinar on how to make sure structures are safe. This will include a “Check Your Deck” webinar.
  • May 11-17: Water Safety. DPS will emphasize programs that help keep the water and environment clean. There will be a Clean Water webinar.
  • May 18-24: Resiliency. Sustainability. Innovation. DPS will focus on innovations and Green Building codes through a webinar.
  • May 25-31: Training the Next Generation. Students from Thomas Edison High School in Wheaton will be featured in a webinar on how to get young residents involved in building a cleaner and safer future.

For actual times of webinars, visit the DPS web page at https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/dps/

Building Safety Month will allow DPS to highlight its availability to homeowners and businesses, even during the health crisis. The department continues to perform key inspections, reviews, issuance of certificates and processing of licenses and permits. 

During the health crisis, DPS has been adapting and modifying its business processes to provide a broad range of uninterrupted services to help businesses operate if they were not under restrictions.

The AZEK® Company Shifts Resources to Help Fight COVID-19

Chicago, Ill., Apr. 28, 2020 – Over the past month, we’ve seen businesses, brands, and individuals alike step up and give back to communities affected by COVID-19. These acts of kindness, both big and small, have offered a glimmer of hope in an otherwise frightening and stressful time. 

The AZEK Company, makers of TimberTech decking and other sustainable building products, has shifted resources at its Vycom facility in Scranton, PA to produce antibacterial partition materials to be used in treatment centers providing care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past month, AZEK provided roughly 5,000 hygienic plastic sheets to the State of New York to be used in the partitions at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, which has been transformed into a 2,000-bed temporary hospital. 

Using these products, The AZEK Company has also designed temporary buildings, beds and other structures for medical use at the following facilities: 

• SUNY Old Westbury (Old Westbury, NY) 

• SUNY Stony Brook (Stony Brook, NY) 

• DeVos Place Convention Center (Grand Rapids, MI) 

Once the need for field hospitals dissipates, The AZEK Company will also be a resource to these sites by recycling the materials into other sustainable products. In the meantime, The AZEK Company is currently in touch with several state governments and stands ready to design and produce materials for additional emergency hospital conversions.

CPG Newco LLC (d/b/a The AZEK® Company) is an industry-leading manufacturer of beautiful, low-maintenance residential and commercial building products, committed to innovation, sustainability and research and design.

National Nail Launches Versatile CAMO® LEVER™ Tool for Fast, Easy Deck Board Bending

Grand Rapids, MI– At CAMO, we know that you don’t have time to wrestle with deck boards –time is precious during installation and crews are getting smaller. Not to mention the strain on the body and potential board damage. As part of the CAMO experience that delivers ease, efficiency and profitability, CAMO® LEVER™ is the only tool needed to bend, straighten or align deck boards to speed up installation. In fact, contractors can build decks up to 5X times faster when they use LEVER with other CAMO innovations like the versatile DRIVE™ stand-up tool for any decking and CAMO EDGE Clip for grooved boards. In these difficult times, the CAMO team knows that COVID-19 is a challenge for deck builders as they try to protect their families and livelihoods. That is why we’re forging ahead with the latest innovation.

Contractors can build decks up to 5X times faster when they use new LEVER with other CAMO innovations like the versatile DRIVE™ stand-up tool for any decking and CAMO EDGE Clips for grooved boards.

LEVER is all about freedom during installation. Without time-consuming set-up, the unique LEVER tool sets in one turn to lock boards in place for fastening with no strain, no hassle. When combined with CAMO EDGE Clips, LEVER speeds up grooved decking installations by locking multiple rows of boards and clips in place for quick fastening. The compact LEVER is also strong enough to straighten any warped board. Smaller crews are not a problem—LEVER eliminates the need to have someone holding boards, or a tool, in place. Lay your boards down, lock them in place with LEVER and you are free to fasten. And the timing of the LEVER launch aligns with the need for one- or two-person installation that allows social distancing on the jobsite to protect worker safety. 

“We are unwavering in our mission to help contractors build a better deck easier and in a faster timeframe–even with smaller crews,” said W. Scott Baker, CEO.  “CAMO LEVER is the latest addition to the family of innovative CAMO products that gives contractors an unparalleled deck-building experience.  We’re dedicated to helping our contractors stay on the job as well as emerge strong from the pandemic.”

The versatile LEVER tool adjusts to single, double and even steel joists and keeps spacing between boards consistent, which, for the discerning deck builder, adds to the beauty of a fastener-free surface. For the best installation experience, lock in a whole field of boards using 2–3 LEVERS across the length of the deck. 

With an MSRP of $99.95, CAMO LEVER is an affordable, easy-to-use innovation that allows contractors to work smarter, with less labor, and helps them build a better deck.
