AZEK® Building Products Partners with Dick’s Decks and Docks to Build a Dock Destroyed by Hurricane Matthew for a Deserving Family in South Carolina

Company Gives Back with AZEK Helping Hands Initiative

 

SKOKIE, IL – AZEK® Building Products, a leader in the development of premium, low maintenance decking, launched the AZEK Helping Hands initiative to give back to a deserving family who could use a new deck or dock after Hurricane Matthew damaged the Southeast Atlantic coast last year. This spring, Heather Doray, a teacher at Beaufort High School was surprised in her classroom, alongside her husband, Rob Kintz, with the announcement that her family was going to get a new dock.

AZEK received submissions from both her aunt and mother, nominating Heather for her charitable personality and dedication to the community. Heather also nominated her husband Rob since the hurricane was a setback for their family and the new dock would be an unbelievable gift for their family. Kintz had been renovating their house on St. Helena Island both before and after the hurricane, even after working long hours as an electrician. After all of the devastation they suffered, AZEK Building Products decided that this family deserved a new dock.

“We were finally able to buy a piece of paradise with a dock, and two years later, hurricane Matthew hit and destroyed it. It was devastating the next day to wake up and see the damage from the storm,” said Kintz. “We did not have the money to pay a dock builder, so the rebuild process would have been a slow one. Not only did AZEK replace the part that was destroyed, but AZEK replaced the entire dock. It means a lot to us that there are still companies out there like AZEK that give back to people in the community.” 

AZEK partnered with Richard Knieriem, owner of Dick’s Decks and Docks, to complete the 2,800 square foot dock that features the TimberTech Docksider™ Collection in Gray.

“We’ve been using TimberTech since we started the business two years ago because I like using composite,” said Knieriem. “We love fixing docks and we love using this product – it’s basically the perfect product – and Heather and Rob will really get to enjoy a beautiful, new dock with this material. I am pleased to have been a part of this great initiative. Helping others is what it is all about.”
