Lifetime product is the last board you’ll ever need

After investing in the highest quality materials for your waterfront property, it’s important to outfit the structure with dock, deck and trim boards that are durable, long-lasting, low-maintenance and designed to last a lifetime.

With specific features such as cool board technology, no static, and virtually no expansion or contraction, Owens Corning WearDeck is the one product on the market that ticks all the boxes.

Supplied through Baycrest Distribution, Weardeck is the strongest man-made board available. “Others claim to be the ‘strongest on the market’ without the ability to back that up,” explains Jason Smith of Baycrest Distribution. “WearDeck is now available for structural use – making it the only structural board and without question the strongest.”

Contractors love the fact that WearDeck’s increased span strength allows the boards to bridge spaces up to 36 inches across. It’s a characteristic unique to this product, which makes it a perfect fit for fixed steel docks and boathouse structures.

The top-of-the-line product has become extremely popular with property owners and contractors alike due to its stability, durability, strength, and most of all its cool surface on hot days.

WearDeck boards are designed to be fully submerged or placed directly on the ground without worry of the product degrading. This means the boards are the perfect choice for waterfront builds.

“Your waterfront structures are a huge investment and the best way to protect that investment is choosing the best products for your dock or deck,” says Jason.

The North American-made synthetic lumber is waterproof, rot proof, and mould proof, as well as being designed not to split, splinter, or fade. Jason explains there is a difference between the board being “proof” as opposed to many other boards on the market, which are only “resistant” to water, rot, and mould.

“You can fully submerge or place a WearDeck board in the dirt without harming it,” he says. “It’s why they’re the ideal choice for cottagers to use at their waterfront, boardwalks, or on their back deck away from the shore. They will stand the test of time and remain strong in the face of environmental swings and seasonal changes.”

Lifetime features
One of the advantages of WearDeck boards is the way they’re manufactured. The colour, protectants and their heat-reflective technology are integrated directly into the boards, rather than being applied to the surface as a coating, like their competitors.

This means the colour and the cool-to-the-touch feature stays true for generations to come: it is a true lifetime product.

“You can comfortably walk barefoot on it. And it’s static-free, making it comfortable on the hottest days of summer.”

“These planks just make sense for your home, cottage or business whether it’s on the water or in an urban setting,” says Jason. “You won’t find this range of beneficial characteristics in any other board.”

Forward thinking
The virtually maintenance-free boards only need a hose or power washer to remove surface dust and dirt, making them easy to keep looking new.Plus, if you’re planning on selling in the future, your deck and dock will be in tip-top shape for showings. No need to worry about replacing the lifetime product, as it will continue to provide exceptional ROI and curb appeal through the years.

“You’re definitely going to see the value if or when you choose to sell your home or cottage,” says Jason. “It’s the last board you’ll ever need to buy.”

Jason adds that there are many factors for cottagers and homeowners to take into consideration when choosing their dock or deck boards.

When making your choice, it’s very important to consider composition, style, texture, colour, strength, durability and the feel of the board.

“Choosing the right deck or dock board is essential to the enjoyment and longevity of your waterfront,” says Jason. “We take time to help our clients make an educated decision on what’s best for their project.”
