Vinyl Decking… The best idea yet
There’s no better place to spend a drowsy summer evening than on your own outdoor vinyl deck. Leaning back in your lounge chair listening to the crickets and watching the stars come out while burgers sizzle on the grill — well, life is good.
Until you get up and feel a jagged wooden splinter driven deep into your foot.
That, in a nutshell, is the problem with wooden decks. They look great when you first install one. But exposure to sun, rain, snow and wind quickly destroys them, making them crack, splinter, chip and rot. They need regular resealing and repainting. And that wood can get blisteringly hot in the summer sun.
Fortunately, there’s a better option: vinyl decking.
Durable, maintenance-free and cost-effective, vinyl decking lasts years longer than wood. Vinyl decking is nonporous, weather-resistant surface cleans easily and resists stains — and never needs sealing or painting. And vinyl decking stays cool even during the hottest summer days.
Better Vinyl Decking Through Science
Our vinly decking material is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a very common and highly versatile synthetic material. PVC appears in thousands of different products, including window frames, drainage pipes, water service pipes, medical devices, blood storage bags, cable and wire insulation, resilient flooring, roofing membranes, stationary, automotive interiors and seat coverings, fashion and footwear, packaging, cling film, credit cards, synthetic leather and other coated fabrics.
Vinyl decking PVC is both fire and water resistant (that’s one of the reasons it’s used to make raincoats and shower curtains), and very easy to work with. Over 14 billion pounds of PVC are currently produced per year in North America. Approximately 75% of all PVC manufactured is used in construction materials.
Vinyl Decking Guaranteed to Last
Obviously, there are a lot of PVC products out there, and they’re not all created equal. Key to the appearance and longevity of vinyl decking are certain additives that help protect vinyl decking from the harmful effects of sunlight, that ensure the color stays bright and fresh, that protect against impact and weather.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of vinyl decking manufacturers that cut corners to maximize their profit — at your expense. We don’t do business with companies that do business like that.
Our Brock Deck® Brock Deck & Deck Lok vinyl decking products are backed by a lifetime warranty on residential vinyl decking installations and a 20-year warranty on commercial vinyl decking installations, and our Sheerline® Sheerline Deck Systems vinyl decking line carries a lifetime warranty against cracking, breaking, abnormal weathering and discoloration.

Only the Best Ingredients in our Vinyl Decking
All of our vinyl decking is manufactured using an additive called TIO2, which gives them the best protection possible against harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Without this additive, which meets the industry standard of 10pph, the vinyl decking would become brittle and discolored over time.
We also offer only the very best, proven color additive blends to ensure that your white, tan or gray vinyl decking stays the same color it was when you bought it — in fact, each rail car shipped to us has to be certified to have met strict requirements before we accept delivery. Cheaper products can’t (truthfully) make the same claim, which is why they don’t last as long and don’t look as good.
Our vinyl decking products are also extruded from the very best virgin vinyl compounds available. Other vinyl decking manufacturers too often use a quality surface coating over a base of inferior, recycled vinyl scrap. As a result, the base may not be as resistant to UV and environmental conditions, and the entire structure can weaken over time. Because our vinyl decking is 100% extruded from virgin vinyl, you can rest assured it’ll be worry-free.
We’re concerned that our products be as environmentally friendly as possible, so we actively try to reduce the amount of scrap generated at our manufacturing facility. We also practice a very aggressive regrind and reprocessing program. All of our decking is 100% recyclable — an environmentally safe alternative to chemically treated wood decking.
