Finding the right board for your dock or deck is something that should be done in person.
When making your choice, you must consider the style, the texture, the colour, the strength, durability, and the feel of the board. It’s a fact Baycrest Distribution’s team knows well: it’s why they opened their Lifetime Lumber Products retail location in Bala.
“It’s a place where you can touch and feel the products available before making those important deck and dock board decisions,” says Jason Smith of Baycrest Distribution. “The name of the store comes from the fact our products come with a lifetime warranty. They stand the test of time.”
The store features an array of different top-of-the-line synthetic lumber products, and a staff who can advise on the best board for each project, as well as all the fasteners needed to complete the project.
A newer product on the market, WearDeck is the next evolution of dock and deck boards. It offers all the benefits builders expect from synthetic lumber, including protection from water, mould, mildew, insects, and other organisms.
It is a durable and low maintenance choice. It’s static free, cooler even in darker darker colours, and offers increased span strength for installations.
History of Excellence
A popular synthetic board which has been on the market for over two decades, Lumberock is solid and colour-fast throughout. It is well-suited to complex and creative projects where boards need to be cut and shaped. It comes in various thicknesses and widths, and has been used for vertical wall boards, as well as floors and ceilings in Muskoka rooms.
“It can be manipulated like wood while maintaining all the benefits of synthetic lumber,” says Jason. “Lumberock can be used creatively, including for fencing, trim for windows and doors, seawall cladding, privacy fences, outdoor furniture, and more.”
Walls and ceilings
Trusscore is a synthetic wall and ceiling product that is growing in popularity. Jason says the high-performance wall and ceiling PVC panels are a great option for interiors of boathouses, garages, and sheds.
“It is designed as an alternative to painted drywall or fibre-reinforced plastic panels,” he says. “They are strong, lightweight and easy to install.”
The panels are resilient, waterproof, abuse-resistant – and pressure washable – making them ideal for work spaces and high traffic locations.
“They have a bright and clean finish that is comparable to drywall,” says Jason.
No matter what project you’re completing, it makes good sense to use the best materials available for the job. The team at Baycrest Distribution will help you make the right choice for your lumber needs.
