CPG International Announces Prices Increase on Products

CPG International Announces Prices Increase on Residential Products

CPG International, manufacturer of AZEK and TimberTech branded building products has announced that it will initiate pricing increases on many of its products.  AZEK trim and molding, along with most AZEK brand decking collections, will see an increase of 7%.  Prices for capped wood composite decking products under the TimberTech brand will increase from 3-5%, depending on the collection.  The price increase will have an effective date to AZEK and TimberTech distributors for orders placed on or after June 22, 2017 for shipments completed before August 22, 2017.

The company expects that by setting the August 22nd extended the deadline for shipments on orders placed before June 22nd, most retailers and contractors should be able to get through the height of the deck-building season and into the late summer or fall without being impacted by the increased prices.  But, the key for distributors, contractors and dealers is to plan ahead and get orders placed before that June order deadline.

In a statement, the company noted that the industry has experienced significant increases in key raw materials and other direct production inputs across most PVC and other composite products.  While the company has been able to off-set much of the impact of these cost increases over the past year through on-going manufacturing improvements and other cost reduction efforts, raw materials costs had reached the point at which a price increase was needed.

CAMO supports Deck Safety Month® in May

Contractors Mark NADRA’s Deck Safety Month® in May with CAMO Edge Fastening for Safer, Barefoot-Friendly Deck Surfaces

CAMO Edge Fastening teams with the North American Deck and Railing Association, Inc. (NADRA) to promote “Deck Safety Month®” with ways to improve the safety of your deck using better installation techniques and materials.

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (PRWEB) MAY 18, 2017

CAMO Edge Fastening joined forces with the North American Deck and Railing Association, Inc. (NADRA), in supporting Deck Safety Month® in May to help increase public awareness of the necessity for regular inspection and maintenance of existing decks, and proper installation of new decks. National Nail’s CAMO Edge Fastening is one technology that can help contractors make decks safer for homeowners.

Unlike traditional fasteners that are nailed or screwed through the top or face of the deck board, the proprietary Edge Fastening system guides the unique CAMO® screws through the edge of the boards. Applying the screws in this manner eliminates the safety issues normally associated with traditional face fastening. Edge fastening greatly reduces the cracking and splitting of deck boards that leads to splinters while also eliminating the common issue of nails and screws working themselves out of the deck board surface. Scott Baker, CEO and President of National Nail states, “Splinters, nails and screw pops find their way into the feet of unsuspecting guests. Families don’t want to turn their fun, outdoor event into a first aid lesson. That’s why we say CAMO® is barefoot approved™.”

Another safety advantage to CAMO Edge Fastening is the holding power of the deck board is greatly improved due to the angle which the screws enter the deck board and attach directly to the sub-structure. This system virtually eliminates deck board movement which is a common problem with deck clips. “With CAMO, you get a solid, stable board. If there is ever an issue with a board I can back the screws out to replace it where I can’t with typical hidden clips,” said Billy Lecorchick, owner of Legends Home Improvements in Monroe, NJ.

“Contractors or homeowners using wood, composites or PVC are fastening their decks with CAMO Edge Fastening for safer, fastener-free surfaces,” said Greg Palmer, Director of Marketing, National Nail/CAMO. “Edge-fastened decks prevent fastener caused splitting or cracking that increases weather and moisture access to the deck material– which can add to and increase degradation of the deck board. The deck surface is also safer for bare feet with no raised screw heads, which can also get hot in the sun. These are all important safety factors for homeowners. “

Chris Warren of Warren Builders, State College, PA, agrees and said, “With the new wave of composites and pvcs, no one screws deck boards the old-fashioned way anymore. The edge-fastened decks do not allow water seepage into exposed openings around face-screws or into cracks or splits.”
